Chocolate & Strawberry Gateau

Everybody loves chocolate gateau, it’s a simple fact of life. Often it’s made with black cherries or fruits of the forest making it quite a wintery dessert. The use of fresh strawberries in my version gives it a bit of a lift and transforms it for summer time. Chocolate gateau is a great crowd pleaser,…

The Dog & Gun, Boreham

Regular readers will know that I usually do London restaurant reviews as I work in central London and am often out and about in town on weekday evenings eating all the yummy food I can get my hands on and trying new restaurants (sharing food or getting together over dinner is, in my opinion, the…

Kettner’s Brasserie, Soho

Planning my latest dinner date with my best friend, we couldn’t decide where to go so rather than trying somewhere new, we settled on an old favourite that we both love: Kettner’s. We’d not been for a while and I was vey much looking forward to going back to the luxurious and stylish townhouse in…

Cranberry & Almond Rocky Road Crunch Bars

Okay, this one isn’t strictly a bake as it never actually goes in the oven, but it does sort of come under the cakey/biscuity tea time treat category so we’ll stick it on with the Sunday Bakes. This simple recipe is quick to assemble, easy to make and a real crowd pleaser. Simply mix all…

Snowflake, Soho

Yes I’ve been skipping the dessert menu in order to go and find more exciting puddings again! Snowflake is yet another great gelato shop in Soho. I actually wasn’t aware of Snowflake until I was making my way to a dinner reservation the other week when I noticed it and decided to come back later…

Millionaire’s Shortbread

Everyone has their favourite childhood treat, and this is mine. I used to beg my Mum to make this stuff and I don’t think I’ve ever had a slice from a shop or a cafe that tasted better than hers did when I was little. This is my ultimate teatime treat and this was actually…

Taste of Christmas

On a cold and windy Friday evening, just before December, the Christmas season was approaching and I could be found rushing down to Tobacco Dock for an evening of festive foodie delights. I’ve not been to Taste of Christmas before, although I have been to Tobacco Dock for Feast before, so I was excited to…

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

There almost wasn’t a Sunday Bake this week as I didn’t have anything planned, however the boyfriend has come to stay for a couple of days and he had a craving for cookies, so this morning we got baking. These cookies are chewy and squidgy and delicious and you can easily adapt the recipe to…

Brigade, London Bridge

For a catch up dinner with my school friends, I actually ventured outside of Soho for a change and went out in London Bridge this week. It’s been a while since I’ve been in the area and upon exiting the station I got immediately lost amongst all the engineering works that definitely weren’t there last…

Gluten Free Double Chocolate Brownies

Last weekend I was presented with the challenge of baking gluten free cakes. This is something I’ve never come across before but when the boyfriend invited me along to a BBQ with some of his new uni friends and, me being me, I said I’d make something to bring along, he told me anything I…
