Salmon Noodle Bowl with Green Thai Broth

Green Thai curry is absolutely one of my favourite flavours of all the smorgasbord that is Asian cuisine. I’ve made more green chicken curries than I can remember but I wanted to use salmon this time and I wanted to make it a bit lighter. I’ve made a few Thai curry soup type dishes before…

Tomato & Roasted Red Pepper Tart

As recipes go, I almost feel like this is a bit of a cop out because there’s absolutely zero skill involved but the result is absolutely scrumptious so I’m sharing it with you anyway. Puff pastry tarts make such a great midweek meal as you can buy the ready-rolled sheet, plonk a few things on…

Rambla, Soho

If there’s one type of cuisine I’m guaranteed to always get excited about, it’s tapas. A childhood of sunny Spanish holidays seems to have ingrained it in my blood and if there’s a new tapas popping up somewhere, it’ll shoot straight to the top of my (ever expanding) list of places to try. Such was…

Grilled Peach & Duck Breast Salad

I have to confess I’ve always been sceptical of putting fruit into savoury dishes, in very few cases does it actually work, apricots in a Moroccan tagine for example, but if you want to start chucking strawberries in a salad I really can’t get on board with that. I will, however, admit that I can…

Pesto Chicken Crumble

I am always looking for new ways to cook basic ingredients, incorporating my favourite flavours whilst keeping the whole thing healthy and both family and budget friendly. When I was thinking about what I could do with a chicken and pesto dish that would be a little more original, I thought why not make a…

A Weekend in Edinburgh

To celebrate the 5th anniversary of our first date, The Boyfriend and I recently took a little trip up to Edinburgh for a weekend mini-break. Initially we picked Edinburgh to visit the castle but I was also delighted to discover it has an absolutely fantastic food scene! Since there were so many fantastic parts to…

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…

Luna Mexican Kitchen, San Jose

If you’ve been following me on Instagram you may have noticed that I spend quite a bit of time travelling to California for work. It’s a long way to go but also a fantastic opportunity for me to find some great new places to eat! Quite often we go out for large team dinners at…

The Trafalgar Dining Rooms

I stumbled upon the Trafalgar Dining Rooms almost a little accidentally when I had theatre tickets for The Grinning Man and needed to grab dinner somewhere nearby before the show. I did a quick search on Open Table trying to find somewhere I could have a nice meal and also be in and out within…

Tabun Kitchen, Soho

Valentine‘s Day is a holiday that many consider overrated. I‘ve never been one for big gifts and extravagant gestures but with busy lives spending quality time with your other half can often be neglected so it‘s a good excuse to put aside all your other commitments and make sure you get to spend the day…
