I knew I should’ve taken the earlier train – it meant that I missed service on the breakfast menu at the increasingly popular Holybelly cafe and thus missed the savoury stack of pancakes that I’d been craving for a year!! (They were closed for refurbishment last time I visited in September.) And it meant I… Continue reading Curiosity Killed in Paris – encore!
Curiosity Killed… In Brussels
I’d barely looked up from my iPad, watching a Storyville documentary on an FBI informant whilst on the Eurostar, headphones on loud to drown out the rowdy lot sat ahead of us (they were on shots as the train departed at 8:04 a-fricking-m) and hadn’t realised we’d pulled in to Brussels’ Gare du Midi. It’s… Continue reading Curiosity Killed… In Brussels
Taste of London – Christmas 2015
Here’s a super quick post on my trip to the Christmas edition of Taste of London at Tobacco Docks. In my post about the Summer festival I mentioned that we had bought tickets to this winter version to get us in the Christmas mood. But did it? Reader, it did! Taste Christmas is held at… Continue reading Taste of London – Christmas 2015
Big fig love
If you’ve read my previous post on jams here then you may already know how much I love figs. No, seriously I really, really love them. And what’s not to love? Succulent, rich parcels of sweet and juicy flesh, figs symbolise the excesses, headiness and pleasures of summer. I especially associate them with my… Continue reading Big fig love
Curiosity killed… in Paris! Part deux
If you’re reading this before reading part one, do that and then settle yourself in. I left our little tale at the Musee D’Orsay, the stunning museum of art and sculpture on the Left Bank of the Seine and headed off to another pantheon of culture, the Opera Garnier. I’ve photographed and walked past this… Continue reading Curiosity killed… in Paris! Part deux
The last day of August should have been a beautiful and sunny one, but it coincided with a Bank Holiday so of course it would be rainy and miserable! After a much needed lie-in and a lazy start to the day, I needed to get out of the house. A quick trip to the shops… Continue reading Gin-Gin!
Mango + Chia
If you’re like me and already thinking about breakfast tomorrow and want a change from the usual porridge or buttered slice of toast then let me tell you about my delicious bowl of yellow joy! This could be the easiest thing in the world ever, made with just three ingredients: water, chia seeds and mango. You… Continue reading Mango + Chia
Taste of London Food Festival 2015
Apologies for the lack of posts recently! It’s been a busy few weeks with lots of things happening, I just wanted to switch off and totally relax and encouraged hubby to do the same. One of the fun things I was looking forward to was Taste of London. I had first visited two years ago… Continue reading Taste of London Food Festival 2015
I have a massive sweet tooth. In fact, I’m pretty sure all my teeth are sweet. I love sugar and sugar loves me – sort of. So it’s no surprise that I like to smother it all over a tasty scone/crumpet/croissant/slice of toast in its most delicious form as J A M. In the past… Continue reading We’re jamming…
