Tombo, Japanese for dragonfly, is a small deli and cafe in South Kensington, just a minute’s walk from the tube station. It offers a small menu of modern Japanese food and quality tea. I’m a particular fan of it’s Japanese desserts, which often feature ingredients such as azuki (red bean paste), matcha and sesame. On [Read More…]

Daughter of Priscilla | Introducing Pussy Galoaf

Inspired by my lovely friend Celia’s images of beautiful sourdough loaves, Pete and I tried recently to resurrect our last frozen pot of Levi the Levain, the 50+ year old sourdough starter we’d been given by Tom Herbert at a cooking class some years ago. Sadly, although Levi was a spritely old thing when alive [Read More…]

Meet The Blogger | Steve Lamond

I’ve told before the story of how my husband Pete’s beer, whisky and coffee blog came to be – for a year he wrote a series of guest posts here on Kavey Eats before I finally kicked him off in October 2011 to launch PeteDrinks.com. Not long after that, we both went along to the [Read More…]

March 2015 #BSFIC | Dairy Free

February came and went without me posting a theme for BSFIC so I’m diving straight into March with a call for Dairy Free recipes. Whether you use a dairy-free substitute – such as almond, soy or coconut milk – or opt for a sorbet instead, it’s completely up to you.     Images from Shutterstock stock [Read More…]

The Big Chocolate Tea Party + Chocolate Teaser soufflé Recipe

The Big Chocolate Tea Party + Chocolate Teaser soufflé Recipe

I was a lucky child. Neither my sister nor I experienced any major accidents, illnesses or health issues. Our occasional visits to hospital were brief and easily dealt with by our local hospital or local health services. But some families are not so lucky. Some families have to deal with serious childhood sicknesses that are [Read More…]

Join the Calçotada with Rosita & The Sherry Bar

If you have never been to a calçotada, it’s about time you did. This seasonal celebration of the calçot hails from Spain’s Catalan region, where locals celebrate the humble allium with much merriment and greed every year. I first learned of it from Rachel McCormack, who brought the tradition to London when she organised a [Read More…]

Which Cuts Of Beef Are Best For…?

Which Cuts Of Beef Are Best For…?

It’s been a gradual (and on-going) learning process over the years to work out which cuts of beef are best suited to which dishes or cooking methods. Although I’m pretty confident about the cuts to buy for my favourite meals, I am still getting to grips with others and constantly on the look out for [Read More…]

Just Eat Tried & Tasted 2015 + Competition

There’s no denying that I love going out to eat. But I’m also very partial indeed to a really good takeaway – whether we dine at the table or slob out in front of the TV, having great food delivered from local restaurants is a wonderful indulgence.

Den Udon | King’s Cross

Den Udon | King’s Cross

I love udon noodles! There’s something utterly compelling to me about these thick, white and slightly chewy Japanese noodles that other noodles just don’t match, though I’m a fan of pasta in pretty much all its forms. Recently launched restaurant Den describe themselves as udon evangelists’’ and their menu is suitably udon-heavy.   In King’s [Read More…]

Supertaster Me + Taste Matching with Leffe

Supertaster Me + Taste Matching with Leffe

Have you heard of supertasters? To my eternal regret, I have, because I’m one of them. The label makes being a supertaster sound exciting, suggestive of a superior palate. The truth of the matter is that a supertaster is simply someone who “experiences the sense of taste with far greater intensity than average”. Yes, that [Read More…]
