MY FAVOURITE MEALS OF 2015

I had quite a different eating experience in 2015. After years of stuffing myself with butter, cream, cake, chocolate, crisps, pastry, burgers, cheese, bacon….well, you get the picture, I suddenly felt the need to eat a little ‘better’.  As much as I loved my diet of fat, my body didn’t…

FOODIE CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE 2015

December is now upon us and with it, the inescapable, yet exciting build up to Christmas. The lights, the music, the decorations, the tear-jerking adverts, the parties, the food, the drink…the hangovers! It is also that time of the year when family ask you what you would like for Christmas and…

RESTAURANTS YOU CAN BOOK!

One of my biggest pet peeves about eating out in London is the whole no-booking policy many restaurants have adopted. It drives me mad. Especially when the places that do it are all the places I want to eat in…Barrafina, Copita, Polpetto, Mildreds, Dishoom, Spuntino, 10 Greek Street, Hoppers etc. (Just…

MY FAVOURITE DATE SPOTS IN LONDON

Dating is a tricky business, especially in a city as large as London. On the surface you would think it must be easy as there are so many people, so much choice, but that just makes it harder. Try Tinder you say? That just makes it worse! I fully believe…

FARMDROP…AN ONLINE FARMERS MARKET

I started doing my grocery shopping online a couple of years ago. Looking back, I can’t believe I spent so much time traipsing up and down those aisles, queuing up at the till, running back to the far end of the supermarket because I’d forgotten something, then packing everything up, driving…

MY TOP 5 LONDON BRUNCHES

Brunch is probably my favourite meal of the week. There is quite simply nothing better than meeting up with friends and enjoying a relaxing meal with no time constraints. No ‘I need to get back to the office’ or ‘I need to run and get the last tube home’…brunch is…

MALTBY STREET MARKET, LONDON

I love a good food market. When I first moved to London 18 years ago (gulp!) the place to go was Borough Market but over the years it has become more and more popular and therefore busier and busier. If you go any later than 11am, you will spend the entire…

NASHVILLE…a foodie’s dream!

Every year I go away for my birthday. My thought process is pretty much ‘if it doesn’t happen in the UK, it doesn’t happen’.  Hence I’m a lot younger than I ‘technically’ am, and that’s just the way I like it! This year I was struggling to come up with…

‘HEALTHY’ SALTED CARAMEL CHOCOLATE CUPS

My diet has changed quite dramatically recently. I’m not sure when or even if I will return to how I was eating last year and I’m well aware the name of my blog doesn’t match how I’m eating at the moment, so for the time being I’m looking for healthier…

NEW YEAR CLEANSE

After weeks of gorging on copious amounts of cheese, chocolate, cake, burgers, pastry, Christmas dinner, roast potatoes, bacon wrapped dates, Eggs Royale and more cheese in the run up to and over Christmas… …my body felt the need for some clean and healthy foods.  I hated feeling so sluggish and…
