Chinatown Kitchen | Lizzie Mabbott's Chinese Spag Bol

Lizzie Mabbott is a prodigious cook and a prodigious eater! I’ve been following her cooking and eating exploits on the web for many years, first on the now-defunct BBC food discussion boards and since 2008 on her well-known blog, Hollowlegs. If she isn’t eating she may well be cooking, if she isn’t cooking she might [Read More…]

Lobos Meat & Tapas | A Cosy Corner

Lobos Meat & Tapas is exactly the kind of place that is responsible for my recurrent idle fantasy of moving house to be in close proximity to Borough, Maltby Street and Bermondsey Markets and all the fabulous food and drink places this area of London affords. Of course, this fantasy is hugely unrealistic, not least [Read More…]

Roasted Banana & Cream | Ice Lollies | Paletas | Ice Pops

These ice lollies were based on a roasted banana paletas recipe I spotted online a while ago. A paleta is a Latin American ice lolly featuring fresh fruit mixed into a water or cream base – what we call an ice lolly in the UK, the Americans call an ice pop and the Canadians a [Read More…]

Learning About Sake + My HyperJapan Sake Experience

Learning About Sake + My HyperJapan Sake Experience

One of my food and drink goals in recent years (and certainly for the next few too) is to learn more about sake. Not just how it’s made (which I understand pretty well now) and the different categories of sake (which I finally have downpat) but – most importantly of all – working out what [Read More…]

Named for one of the 7,107 islands that make up this island nation, it’s the first joint project of chef Rex De Guzman and [Read More…]

Jamie’s Italian | Restaurant Review

Jamie’s Italian | Restaurant Review

Isn’t it wonderful when a restaurant meal utterly surpasses your expectations? That’s exactly what happened when Pete and I visited the Angel branch of Jamie’s Italian for a weekday evening meal. I’ll put my hands up and confess – one reason it was able to do so was because I had relegated Jamie’s Italian to [Read More…]

Ice Lollies | July BSFIC Roundup

Ice Lollies | July BSFIC Roundup

As I write this, it’s pouring with rain outside and has been since I woke up some hours ago. Heavy drops are bouncing hard on the flat roof outside the window, making quickly-dissipating concentric circles one after the other after the other in mesmerising, ever-changing patterns.

How to Make Pour-Over Coffee in a Chemex Coffeemaker

The Chemex Coffeemaker is an iconic design; a beautiful narrow-waisted glass jug with polished wooden collar and simple leather tie. The sleek coffee apparatus is so timeless you could be forgiven for assuming the Chemex is a recent creation but it was invented in 1941 by German inventor Peter Schlumbohm. Schlumbohm’s Most Famous Invention Conscripted [Read More…]
