Classic Falafel

If your hands aren’t dirty in the process of making falafels, you’re doing it wrong. I’m coming up to my three year blogiversary this weekend which is unbelievable. I started this blog to showcase a bit of my cooking and use it as a portfolio piece for work, but it has ended up being so…
