It’s been a busy week technology wise in the Hayden household. I am the first to admit I am crap when it comes to anything techy. Seriously. I think because I post regularly on IG people assume I know what I am doing, but they are wrong. I like taking a pretty picture and that is it my friends. Anything else is a fluke. Or a frustration. Computers are the bane of my life. (Which is why I am so glad I married who I did, Pete is the original nerd).
BUT two things have happened: the website has had a little refresh! Thanks to the lovely Anna who designed Taverna, and my very clever other half , there are now book illustrations and colours on here. Just a little change but I love it. And whilst we are at it, I thought it was about time we had all the Taverna videos in one place, you know, in case anyone wants to binge watch me and yiayia (HAHAHAHA). You never know. But I did it! I made a YouTube channel about 50 million years later than the rest of the world and put them all on there. Don’t worry, I’m not suddenly going to be a YouTuber, it’s taken all my patience and effort to do this simple task. I am DONE. But I will upload any videos I get through work on there, just so they’re all in one place. That much I can do.
Anyway, here you go, videos on technique for some of the more unusual Taverna recipes. For example – how small to shred the filo for portokalopita. How DO you roll a stuffed vine leaf? And tahinopittes really are very easy and fun to make. There is also a sweet outtake video of me and my yiayia which I adore! And there are shorter 1 minute versions of the recipes on my main YouTube page.
If you like them, drop me a like, comment, whatever it is you are meant to do on YouTube. Or just watch, it’s all good. I hope you like them x

Hi Georgie (now we’re friends!). Really good to meet you yesterday at the Aldeburgh Food Festival. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Loved how you made cooking look so easy and listening to you was like listening to all my friends and family rolled into one! I’ve also taken a look at some of your vids with yiayia – so funny. They all talk the same don’t they… my mum used to call me dahli too. Anyway, just wanted to say hi and also I hope that you enjoy my book. I think you’ll recognise quite a bit there! Wishing you all the best for your future ventures and that you go from strength to strength. Love, Helen xxx
