Whilst Ive been in work ( a shift from hell, might I add) @jomtones has been slaving away making tonight’s dinner. Slow cooked lentil ragù e tagliatelle. Finished with some fresh basil & served with a big glass of (well needed) red and some crusty ciabatta on the chopping board my mum gave me for my birthday (thanks, it looks great!) This is such a remedy from a hard day of work, thanks Hun ?? #food #foodie #foodgasm #foodporn #foodpics #foodphotography #foodshare #italianfood #foodblogger #foodstagram #instafood #vegan #veganfood #veganfoodporn #veganfoodshare #pasta #ragu #ragù #tagliatelle #iittala #lentilragu #lentil #redwine #ciabatta #plantbased #menudesign #cibo #basil #doublecandleholder #sandinaviandesign
