Farewell to 2014

Farewell to 2014

I’m wont to extremely long and rambling annual round ups, when it comes to the end of the year. When I start looking back, I get so excited about so many things I saw, did and ate that I struggle to narrow it down. This year is no different! JANUARY My recipe for Yakitori Chicken [Read More…]

Showstoppers #BSFIC Round Up

Showstoppers #BSFIC Round Up

In retrospect, the Showstoppers theme for Bloggers Scream For Ice Cream was perhaps a little intimidating. The implied requirement for fiddliness, extra effort and fancy presentation didn’t sit well with the demands on our time that are an inevitable part of the season of merriment (aka hustle and bustle).

Cooking Colombian | Cartagena Braised Beef

Cooking Colombian | Cartagena Braised Beef

I visited Colombia about thirty years ago on a family holiday that also took us to Brazil, Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador. Though I still have memories of Bogotá – I remember the statue of Simon Bolivar in Plaza de Bolivar, the flamboyant Iglesia del Carmen and being driven around the old town areas – there’s [Read More…]

Meet The Blogger | Monica Shaw

Meet The Blogger | Monica Shaw

A health-focused, almost-vegetarian wellbeing blogger (not me) and a hedonistic lover of all the things that are bad for you (that’d be me, for the avoidance of any doubt) might not be considered natural bosom buddies and yet, Monica Shaw and I have become dear friends. We’ve even had drunken conversations about bosoms, come to [Read More…]

Lemongrass & Coconut Ice Cream with Dried Chilli Pineapple Flowers

For my birthday, Pete and I enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Kurobuta – Scott Hallsworth’s modern Japanese restaurant. Most of the dishes blew me away (especially the Mushrooms with Gorgonzola, Miso and Pinenuts which I simply can’t stop thinking about).
