Whoosh…! Those of you with kids will recognise that sound as the years go flying by… My eldest son, Jack, turns 24 today (Happy Birthday darling 🥳), and I still remember when he was born, which feels like 5 minutes ago! 🤣

Lots of lovely food to make for him today, but in the meantime, I’ll leave you with one of my favourite Cypriot desserts, irmik helvası (semolina helva). Aside from its sweetness, one of the things that I really like about this dessert is that you can eat it warm or cold 😋

I’ve never tried this recipe from the book Istanbul Cult Recipes, and it’s close to how my Nene used to make it but not quite there yet, so I have asked my cousin for the traditional Cypriot recipe from home ❤️
