Innovative Dim Sum at A Wong | Victoria, London

Innovative Dim Sum at A Wong | Victoria, London

Although I first read about A Wong on the (sadly now defunct) Eat Love Noodles blog back in spring 2013, it wasn’t until this year that I finally visited, in the company of Mr Noodles himself, as well as fellow blogger, the Insatiable Eater and his partner. It was the innovative dim sum that I [Read More...]

Malted Spelt Soda Bread Recipe | Tasty Bread in Half an Hour

Surely it’s impossible not to love soda bread! Not only is it soft and delicious, it’s ridiculously quick and easy to make.   When I talk about soda bread, I am using the term to cover any bread where bicarbonate of soda is the rising agent, rather than yeast. This type of bread making is [Read More...]

Smoky Paprika Coleslaw | An Unusual But Winning Recipe

Smoky Paprika Coleslaw | An Unusual But Winning Recipe

Given how much I enjoy coleslaw – it’s a must-have accompaniment to breaded chicken fillets, deep fried chicken and chicken burgers – it’s a little surprising to me that I’d never made my own; It’s not exactly complicated to shred some raw vegetables and toss in a home-made dressing, after all. I was finally prompted [Read More...]

There are seven cordials in the range, made from natural ingredients with no artificial flavours, sweeteners, colourings or preservatives.

Authentic Japanese Cuisine at Chisou, Knightsbridge

Authentic Japanese Cuisine at Chisou, Knightsbridge

After two trips to Japan in two years, I’ve fallen even more in love with Japanese food. Both holidays gave us plenty of opportunities to enjoy traditional washoku cuisine, particularly in the multi-course kaiseki ryori meals we enjoyed at a number of ryokans. While sushi is increasingly popular in the UK, the many, many other [Read More...]

Resurrecting Bloggers Scream For Ice Scream - April: Chasing The Ice Cream Van

We’ve been blessed with a fair bit of warm and sunny weather these last few weeks, and even though we’ll no doubt have another cold snap or two, spring has definitely sprung.

A Week’s Worth of Sainsbury’s Bistro Range

A Week’s Worth of Sainsbury’s Bistro Range

Recently I started thinking more about ready meals, about other people’s cooking and eating habits and about our own thoughts on ready meals. Usually we have ready meals or ready-made components about once a week. I started musing on whether we could do 7 days in a row eating only ready meals each evening. I [Read More...]

A Little Survey on Ready Meals versus Home Cooking

A Little Survey on Ready Meals versus Home Cooking

I read a blog post recently where the writer had just eaten their first – their very first – ready meal. I think the blogger was in his or her thirties. I was utterly flabbergasted! For some reason, I’ve never spent much time wondering whether other people do or don’t use ready meals. I naively [Read More...]
