Angels with Bagpipes, The Royal Mile, Edinburgh

The Boyfriend and I always like do do something every year to mark the date we went on our first ever date and since this year marked five years we decided to go the extra mile and had a little mini break in Edinburgh. I will write another post about that later but first I…

Vegetarian January

Spurred on by the over-indulgence of Christmas, and a desire to generally be a better person in January, I felt a little bit of a detox was in order. Veganuary is all the rage this year and I can’t log into social media without seeing or reading something about it. However, I’ve never been that…

​ Tapas Brindisa, Rupert Street

Here in Britain we are pretty used to the ingrained formula of the three course meal, especially when dining out, but sometimes it can be quite refreshing to throw convention out of the window and mix things up a bit. I’ve always loved the Spanish tapas style of eating. From a totally greedy point of…

Savage Salads

Salads are boring right? Just plain old lettuce, cucumber and tomato, plain old boring rabbit food? Wrong! Stop the press! Salads can be awesome and exciting! You don’t believe me do you?

American Style Chopped Salad, Lunchbox

Now we’re well into January, my healthy eating kick is going strong and I’m trying to come up with varied and interesting packed lunches to keep me motivated. I’m getting a bit bored of lots of leafy stuff so I decided to change things up a bit and took a few tips from our friends…

Smoked Salmon, Beetroot & Feta Lunchbox

It’s January and just like 99% of the country I am attempting to eat a little more healthily to counteract the over indulgence of the holiday period. Therefore, after a period of laziness, The Saucepot’s Lunchbox has returned. Hurrah! This is also great for my purse strings as lunch out in Soho is not cheap!…

Chorizo, Beetroot & Mozzarella Lunchbox

I must admit when I started The Saucepot’s Lunchbox, I didn’t quite realise just how much of a challenge it would be to keep the lunch boxes varied. It started out with a lot of fish and seafood and I often use similar salady ingredients, but I think this week’s is one of my most…
