Kanada-Ya Ramen comes to London

Kanada-Ya Ramen comes to London

I said a couple of years ago that 2012 was the year of ramen. That was prompted by the opening of four fabulous ramenya in London, each one selling a vastly more exciting (and generally, more authentic) offering than the Wagamama-style facsimile that was prevalent at the time. Since then, the enthusiasm for real ramen [Read More...]

#BSFIC September & October: Anything Goes!

#BSFIC September & October: Anything Goes!

I was dreadfully late in publishing the round up of entries into August’s Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream, which was a joint challenge with Belleau Kitchen’s Random Recipes. Since it seems a bit unfair to expect anyone to participate in a September challenge in the half month remaining, I’m merging with next month. What’s more, [Read More...]

August’s BSFIC-meets-Random Recipes Round Up

August’s BSFIC-meets-Random Recipes Round Up

For August’s Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream, I joined forces with my blog sibling Dom at Belleau Kitchen for a BSFIC-Random Recipes Mashup.

Holy Smoked Mackerel, Batman!

Holy Smoked Mackerel, Batman!

Four years ago a course at Billingsgate Seafood Training School changed my life. If that seems like it might be an exaggeration, rest assured that it really isn’t because, in a roundabout kind of way, it lead to me finally making it to Japan, a country I’d long yearned to visit. That’s a story for [Read More...]

Monday Meet The Blogger | Neil Davey aka Dine Hard

Monday Meet The Blogger | Neil Davey aka Dine Hard

Neil often has me oohing with envy when he shares the details of his latest press trip. Even worse when he tweets photos of his borrowed Bentley by the Great Wall of China or the latest American road trip featuring lobster or real deal barbeque meat. In addition, Neil (and his wife Mrs Dine Hard) [Read More...]

Lemon Cucumbers & Jam Jar Salad Dressing

Lemon Cucumbers & Jam Jar Salad Dressing

We’ve been growing a variety of cucumbers called Lemon this year – so named not because of their flavour but their size, shape and colour.     The skins on ours have been tougher than we expected, so we’ve peeled them before adding them to salads. This one was combined with very thinly sliced red [Read More...]

Her Croatian Wedding | My Croatian Instagramathon

Her Croatian Wedding | My Croatian Instagramathon

My baby sister got married in Croatia a couple of months ago. I can honestly say it was the joint happiest day of my life so far. (The other, for avoidance of doubt, was my wedding to Pete, exactly 20 years ago today). It made my heart so happy to see my sister and her [Read More...]
