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…

My Leftover Challenge

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll be aware that last week I set myself a bit of a challenge. Normally I’m the one that travels for work, but this time The Boyfriend was away, so finding myself rattling around at home on my own I decided to set myself a foodie challenge. When he…

Sam’s Chowder House, Half Moon Bay CA

On my recent travels in California Sam’s Chowder House absolutely has to be up there as one of the stand out eating experiences. Having visited a couple of times now I make a special effort to try and visit whenever I’m over there. Perched on Half Moon Bay overlooking the water, the restaurant has spectacular views and…

Sundried Tomato Pearl Barley Risotto with Trout & Steamed Broccoli

Risotto is absolutely one of my favourite things to eat, it’s so creamy, indulgent and delicious that it’s simply impossible not to love. Eating risotto however proved rather problematic when I decided to go on a diet. The abundance of carbs and high calories in the arborio rice when teamed with lots of cream and…

Kettner’s Brasserie, Soho

Mushroom Risotto with Chicken & Parma Ham

If you’ve ever paid any attention to anyone who’s ever told you risotto is really hard to make… ignore them. When I first tried to make it I was completely baffled as to why it’s got this reputation. Unless you’re really lazy and can’t be bothered to watch it and stir it a bit, risotto…

Canapés with Carluccio

Earlier this week I was lucky enough to be invited to an evening of prosecco and canapés with Antonio Carluccio at the re-opening of his Putney restaurant. A huge fan of Italian food and regular viewer of Two Greedy Italians I was, of course, extremely excited. This all came about at quite short notice so…

Vegetable Risotto

Here’s another great vegetarian recipe I made while Alex was visiting. To be honest, this one I probably wouldn’t put any meat in anyway… except for maybe a few bacon lardons if I was in the mood. I’m a huge huge fan of risotto, there’s something deliciously indulgent about it and since it was Christmas…
