I want to taste strange things in strange places

October 18, 2016

One thing I regret about my Asian travels is not being adventurous enough with the food. Don’t worry, I wasn’t that annoying British Tourist who only ate egg and chips every night and complained about the tea (okay, maybe a little complaining about the tea, but only because Lipton was the only brand I could ever Β bloody find). Whilst in Asia I obviously did a lot of foreign…

Guilt Free Banoffee Pie

September 11, 2016

A moment on the lips is forever on the hips, or so they say! But I’ve been making a big effort to eat healthy lately and whilst dining at London’s Salad Pride recently, I was able to enjoy a slice of Banoffee Pie that was completely guilt free – a raw, vegan, triangle of heaven. But don’t be put off by the words ‘raw’ or ‘vegan’ because it…

The only Frappuccino Recipe you’ll ever need

August 25, 2016

Iced Lattes are my fave. Flavoured Frappes are yummy too. The only problem is that they aren’t exactly the healthiest of drinks, and they can be quiteΒ expensive too. From Costa’s creamy Caramel Coolers to Starbucks Cookie Crumble Frappuccino’s (although, wow, that sounds tasty) these iced coffee drinks are quite calorific and mighty high in sugar, and each costing around Β£3.40. So why not make your own at home?…

Tokyo to go Please

August 13, 2016

In case I haven’t already made it clear in this post, or this video, or on my Insta feed, I love Japanese food! Unfortunately I’ve found that Japanese is one of the least popular takeaway options when I hunt through my drawer of menu’s or browse on Just-EatΒ for local sushi haunts. It seems Pizza & Chicken dominate the takeaway listingsΒ (do we really need so many Chicken shops?) But…

Dim Sum & Chinese Tea: What goes with what?

July 22, 2016

I absolutely love Chinese food and culture! And with Beijing being the first city I ever backpacked to, China will forever hold a special place in my heart. For that reason I love to be as authentic as possible when it comes to eating and tying Chinese food and traditions – so less rice and chips and more wontons and dumplings. With this in mind, I thought I…

Eating, Praising and Loving Gelato

June 24, 2016

Amorino 110 Upper Street, N1 1QN, Islington Amorino.com I’ve always wondered how cool it would be to work in an ice cream parlour and be a professional ice cream taster – #DreamJob or what? Well, on Wednesday I got the chance to try it out when I spent the afternoon sampling many flavours of Gelato and creating italian ice cream masterpieces. In the lovely area of Angel, along…

The Best of Bristol: Bowling, Beef and Bourbon

June 1, 2016

Last month I headed to Bristol to catch up with some mates and for a much needed Bristol Adventure. This is something the Beard and I love to do every now and then because it’s the perfect little city for it. On previous trips we’ve enjoyed a weekend of drinking at UpFest and a delicious trip to the Ox Bristol. But our most recent visit was by far…
