WAFFLES WITH NUTELLA, CARAMELISED BANANA AND PECANS

WAFFLES WITH NUTELLA, CARAMELISED BANANA AND PECANS

Brunch is by far the best meal of the day. It can start at 10am and finish at 3pm. It can include as many courses as you like; they can be sweet, savoury, and even a mix of them both (think waffles with maple syrup and bacon). It can be an innocent mint tea affair or...
A CYCLING FOOD TOUR OF COPENHAGEN

A CYCLING FOOD TOUR OF COPENHAGEN

This past weekend was spent cycling around the wonderful city of Copenhagen, stopping off at every bakery selling snegles or cinnamon buns. I might have only spent 3 days there, but it was long enough to eat 5 snegles, drink a few cocktails and a pizza as good as can...
GAZILLIONAIRES SHORTBREAD

GAZILLIONAIRES SHORTBREAD

As a child (and still to this day), upon entering any cafe, coffee shop, or establishment that might offer cake, I’d be on the look out for millionaires shortbread. This sweet, buttery, sticky biscuit contained some of my favourite ingredients: sugar, chocolate...
CHOCOLATE BOURBON BISCUITS

CHOCOLATE BOURBON BISCUITS

For Christmas, I received an abundance of beautiful and useful kitchen items. I now think the only rooms I need in a future house are a kitchen and library. The kitchen gifts included gold cutlery, a cocktail shaker and an iittala bowl. The first gift, however, that...
CHRISTMAS COCKTAIL

CHRISTMAS COCKTAIL

With the festive season upon us, Christmas lists are being written, sent and shared around the world. In our family, the list that takes priority is the food and drink one. Who’s bringing the turkey? Where’s the cheese being bought from? What’s being...
GREEN TART

GREEN TART

Some weeks pass by and nothing of particular importance happens. They may drag or they may fly by, but they’re not going to be remembered. Other weeks are so full of happenings that you want to hide under a blanket and wait for everything to calm over. This week...
APPLE AND BLACKBERRY CRUMBLE

APPLE AND BLACKBERRY CRUMBLE

Today was made for hunkering down. Whilst the rain may have cleared, it’s cold and crisp outside. It’s a day to wrap up in a blanket and eat a hot fruit crumble. An autumnal crumble is difficult to beat and impossible not to love. Around this time of year,...
EAST LONDON FOOD TOUR

EAST LONDON FOOD TOUR

Yesterday was spent eating my way around East London, sitting in parks whilst the leaves blew from the trees and generally indulging a lot. The first stop on the tour was The Ginger Pig, located on a street full of cafes, fishmongers and delis. The Ginger Pig is...
FOODS OF PALMA AND DEIA

FOODS OF PALMA AND DEIA

Palma is a cobbled street city, with palm trees and grand cathedrals lining the roads. Beautifully coloured shutters hide the windows whilst ornate balconies stand, overlooking the city. Deia is a small town, only accessed by winding roads. Beautiful stone buildings...
BANANA, DARK CHOCOLATE AND WALNUT LOAF

BANANA, DARK CHOCOLATE AND WALNUT LOAF

The thought of having a bin full of decaying fruit instills sadness in me. When an apple starts to bruise around the edges I will slice it up, add some cinnamon, oats and serve the crumble with jugfuls of rich, smooth custard. If the plums start to soften I will put...
