Bank Holiday + laziness = a mini Easter pub crawl (or should that be a waddle…)

Happy Easter everyone! It’s the time of year where it’s (hopefully) getting warmer, it’s certainly getting lighter and long weekends are becoming more frequent; how can any of those things be bad? They just can’t. What is bad, however, is how long I’ve been away. I can only apologise from the bottom of my currentlyContinue reading “Bank Holiday + laziness = a mini Easter pub crawl (or should that be a waddle…)”

Phantastic phood at The Phene

Yesterday evening I dined at The Phene in Chelsea, a pub in SW3 established in 1853 which underwent significant refurbishment about a year and a half ago. The word ‘pub’, however, doesn’t do it justice; on entering the quaintly positioned establishment in a nook of Phene Road (a couple of turns off of the well-known King’s Road),Continue reading “Phantastic phood at The Phene”

A Valentine’s Cleaver

Aaaand she’s back! I can only apologise for how long it has taken me to get back on here; what with it being my final year at university, unfortunately academic work has been taking priority. But that all stops today, with this post, as I get back to doing what I love; eating and writingContinue reading “A Valentine’s Cleaver”

Marcus at The Berkeley

So on Saturday 17th January my lovely family took me to Marcus, Marcus Wareing’s 2 Michelin-star restaurant, at The Berkeley hotel for an early birthday present. Needless to say that will be the main focus of this post, but before I wax lyrical on how fabulous an experience it was, the cocktail bar I wasContinue reading “Marcus at The Berkeley”

Polpo at Ape and Bird

HAPPY NEW YEAR! As I’m sure you’ll agree, the prospect of a new year is always exciting; 365 days of new things to enjoy. And, for me, that usually means new food and new restaurants to find and enthuse about. However, let us focus on the distant past of 2014 for this post, as it was onContinue reading “Polpo at Ape and Bird”

Christmas Market Fun

As promised, I am writing my festive post before I slowly slip into that inevitable food coma which is fast approaching and I’ve decided to write about a few of the Christmas markets I have visited in the last month or so, as a guide but also as an alternative to the many Christmas recipeContinue reading “Christmas Market Fun”

Good(Food) Times

Hello! Now, don’t get confused, as I know I said I would be writing another Rome-inspired post and I will, I promise, but today’s post is all about the BBC Good Food Show I attended at Kensington Olympia on Saturday. It was my first time at the event (ridiculous for someone that loves all thingsContinue reading “Good(Food) Times”

Pincho- The Inspiration.

As well as vast encouragement to start my blog from family (shout-out to Matt and Sarah), what also made me finally set one up was a restaurant I went to in Twickenham with friends last week. Pincho, situated at the end of a charming cobbled street lined with quaint eateries from all corners of theContinue reading “Pincho- The Inspiration.”
