A Visit to Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada

A Visit to Niagara Falls in Ontario, Canada

One of my earliest childhood memories is of a visit to Niagara Falls when I was four years old. Everyone donned waterproof ponchos before we walked through the tunnels to view the falls from behind the water. This memory, oddly, is so much stronger than the fragments of looking down on the falls from the [Read More…]

Suda Thai Cafe Restaurant in St Martin’s Courtyard, Covent Garden

Imagine you’re in the mood for Indian food. Sometimes that means seeking out the amazing place you’ve found across the other side of London, the one that makes rotis and parathas just like the ones you had when you travelled around India. Or the one down in Peckham serving Keralan food redolent with curry leaves [Read More…]

Golden Banana, Turmeric & Maple Syrup Smoothie

Golden Banana, Turmeric & Maple Syrup Smoothie

Sometimes the best ideas are spur of the moment, driven by the ingredients you happen to have on hand. So it was with this banana, turmeric and maple syrup smoothie which I liked so much I made it three days in a row. Banana is my staple base for a smoothie – I love the [Read More…]

All The Meat! Blacklock, Soho

Social media – for those of us who follow lots of London fooderati – was filled with photos of plates piled high with grilled meat when Blacklock opened its doors in the heart of Soho last February. Mounds of beef, lamb and pork chops cooked on a charcoal grill and served over bread that soaks [Read More…]

A Year In Review | 2015 on Kavey Eats

13 days off from work has been blissful. I started the holidays full of determination to tick things off my To Do list – as always, I have a long list of posts I’m eager to write and share. In the end, I did far less than planned – quickly succumbing to the realisation that [Read More…]

Are You A Magazine Addict? Introducing Readly + Readly Giveaway

My name is Kavey and I’m a recovering magazine addict. You might laugh, but fellow addicts know that this particular affliction can be a hard habit to break.

Forays Into First Nations Food & Culture | Visiting the Huron-Wendat in Quebec, Canada

Forays Into First Nations Food & Culture | Visiting the Huron-Wendat in Quebec, Canada

When I was a child back in the Seventies, the only terms I knew for the aboriginal peoples of North America were Red Indians and Native Americans. As a child, I understood that the former was considered offensive, a relic clinging to the clichéd coattails of Hollywood Westerns. It also surprised me that early European [Read More…]

Foxlow Balham | Neighbourhood Steak Night

Foxlow Balham | Neighbourhood Steak Night

I’ve enjoyed visiting Hawksmoor, albeit only intermittently, since the days when there was just one of what later became a mini chain of five; each new property to open serving the same impeccably sourced and delicious steaks, super and inventive cocktails and tasty desserts in a wonderfully individual, beautifully furnished, welcoming setting. Owners Will Beckett [Read More…]
