Cow + Field,Thai-riffic, supperclub review, London

Often when asked what my favourite food is, which is quite frankly an almost impossible question for me to answer, my response is Thai.  I spent many months traversing Thailand back in the early 00s and so it holds very fond memories for me, not least the food.

KitchenAid Experience store, cookery school review, London

If there is one thing most cooks covet, it’s a shiny new KitchenAid; they are an iconic piece of beautifully designed kit.  Sadly, little Brick Lane Kitchen is too small to accommodate one and my bank balance too low to purchase one.  So, when I got the opportunity (thanks to Love Pop Ups London and the London KitchenAid experience store) to get my hands on … Continue reading KitchenAid Experience store, cookery school review, London

Brawn, a braw sunlit room, restaurant review, London

For those not aware, I left my job of eleven years, about six, maybe seven weeks ago. Keeping track of time is a nightmare, especially when it’s all you have to do with your time. As you can no doubt imagine, these weeks and a short few preceding them, have elicited every possible emotion, from heartbreak and rage, to joy and fearlessness, love and regret, … Continue reading Brawn, a braw sunlit room, restaurant review, London
