Clemmie Hooper is a midwife and mother of four daughters who is best known for her instagram account @mother_of_daughters. Clemmie’s account is not just pretty, but challenging and thought-provoking as well (not unlike Clemmie herself!).

I visited Clemmie’s stunning home on a chilly November day and was thrilled when she told me she was making me a warming chicken and chorizo stew. You can find her (OMG so delicious) recipe below!

    Looks delicious! Although 1 chicken thigh between 4 surely cant be right? 100g of thigh meat would be tiny?! Will definitely make though it sounds delicious
