48 Hours in Brussels | Where to Eat, Drink, Shop & Sleep

48 Hours in Brussels | Where to Eat, Drink, Shop & Sleep

When it comes to tourism in Belgium, Brussels gets a bad rap. Go to Bruges, they say, for the picturesque canals and mediaeval centre. Go to Antwerp, they say, for world class art and hipster fashion. Go to Ghent, they say, for more of the same plus cycling too. Go to Ypres, they say, for [Read More...]

Jelly Belly Candy Giveaway

Jelly Belly Candy Giveaway

Did you know that Jelly Belly do sweets other than jelly beans? I didn’t! The good news is that the Jelly Belly Candy range is as tasty as their jelly beans. Pete and I have been ripping open bag after bag these last few weeks and I have to confess, none of them have lasted [Read More...]

Courgette, Goat’s Cheese & Mint Frittata

Courgette, Goat’s Cheese & Mint Frittata

As a late comer to making frittata my enthusiasm for this simple dish is as yet unabated. Its versatility is particularly welcome in this hot and muggy weather – it can serve as breakfast, lunch, dinner or an anytime-snack and is just as good hot or cold. And of course, the variations are endless, making [Read More...]

Jungle Juice Sorbet

Jungle Juice Sorbet

Safari I love safari! Pete and I are fortunate to have been on several over the last two decades and have particular soft spots for the wildlife parks of Botswana, Kenya and South Africa, to name a few.   There’s something utterly captivating about observing birds and animals in their natural habitats, up close and [Read More...]

Variations on Potato Dauphinoise

Variations on Potato Dauphinoise

I’ve shared three Potato Dauphinoise posts on Kavey Eats over the years – the easy recipe I learned at the Waitrose cookery school, a caramelised onion version and a sweet potato and ham Dauphinoise. The original easy recipe also includes a variation substituting chicken stock for the milk, so I guess that’s actually four versions [Read More...]

June’s Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream Round Up

With summer finally arriving in full force, June’s #BSFIC theme was fruit. As always, you shared a wonderful variety of ideas, all of which I wish I could try! (Sorry for the delay in sharing the round up; I was away in Dubrovnik at the end of the month and straight back to work on [Read More...]

Little Orange & Lime Cakes from Brazil | Bolinhos de Laranja e Limão

Little Orange & Lime Cakes from Brazil | Bolinhos de Laranja e Limão

It’s rare for us to make cakes the traditional way any more; creaming together butter and sugar, beating in the eggs and folding in the dry ingredients by hand is not only time-consuming but tiring on the arms too. Instead, for the last several years we’ve mixed most cake batters directly in our food processor, [Read More...]

Uni Restaurant | Nikkei Cuisine in London

Uni Restaurant | Nikkei Cuisine in London

I recently started a new job in Victoria, an area jam-packed with mediocre chain restaurants and coffee shops. When I asked food friends for recommendations, Uni was a name that popped up more than once, with its salmon tacos singled out for particular praise. Taco shells filled with salmon tartare isn’t a dish I’ve ever [Read More...]

How to Make Brazilian Brigadeiro Chocolate Bonbons

How to Make Brazilian Brigadeiro Chocolate Bonbons

Thus far, all the Brazilians I’ve met are warm, friendly, simple (by which I mean uncomplicated and genuine, not lacking in intelligence) and full of laughter. Brigadeiro, a chocolate bon bon made with a few simple ingredients and decorated in a bold – perhaps even gaudy – style, is a wonderful representation of Brazil and [Read More...]
