La Tagliata Fitzrovia Review in collaboration with @Top_London_Restaurants

  Italian restaurants are, to me, something of a tradition.  Everyone seems to have their go-to haunts (mine being Signor Sassi, Sale e Pepe and Margot) and aren’t easily coerced into a one-night affair away from the comforts and loyalty that lie with their beloved.  Cue the new Fitzrovia branch of the City’s La Tagliata…

Frog by Adam Handling Review

The second I heard Frog by Adam Handling was opening up in Covent Garden, I needed in.  I’d heard such good things about Frog E1 but never had the time to get over given that I live central and have a pretty hectic schedule/am a total lazy arse.  Monday night was the night.  I lost…

Breakfast at Chi Kitchen Review

If I told you that on Sunday morning I was excitedly skipping my way down Oxford Street to Debenhams before it even opened, you’d be forgiven for thinking that I was an absolute loser.  Now, throw in a bit of context (such as having been invited by Ping Coombes, winner of Masterchef 2014, to the…

Jujube Fruit Energy Ball Recipe

Jujube Fruit Energy Ball Recipe Makes 8-10 These energy balls are so quick and easy to make and are the perfect little bites to fill a hole between meals if you need a quick energy boost! What I love about making energy balls is that you can use pretty much whatever you’ve got in your…

Joe’s Southern Review

As I’m sat here on Sunday night, begrudgingly resigned to the fact that I have a mere 2 hours left before the monster that is Monday arrives, I’m reminiscing about the dinner I enjoyed at Joe’s Southern in Covent Garden earlier this week. For some unbeknown reason, despite having walked past it probably about 5,000…

Tarshish Review

After my visit to The Banc taught me to push my central London prejudices aside, I was very happy when I received an invitation to discover what their sister restaurant Tarshish had to offer.  Tarshish is a Turkish and Mediterranean, halal-friendly grill located in north London, just a 2 minute walk from Turnpike Lane tube…

Whirld Fudge Review

I’m currently trying to remain fit and healthy (read: attempting in vain to achieve sexy summer bod status) when a delivery of 5 boxes of fudge arrives at my door on Monday morning.  The struggle is real, guys. Whirld has been whipping up fudge for 18 years, after founder Justine (also the founder of my…

The Banc Review

Hands up, I am, by my own admission, a Central London snob.  Living in the West End has turned me into a lazy foodie who is used to having everything on her doorstep, which is why when I got invited to a blogger’s brunch at The Banc on Sunday there was a resounding groan when…

Creme Egg Wontons

Easter is nearly upon us which means a whole load of indulgence is awaiting in the form of hot cross buns and Easter eggs!! This time of year everyone goes mad for Creme Eggs and Zing Zing have decided to go one step further by turning miniature versions of these glorious goodies into WONTONS.  Yes, that’s…

Zing Zing Review

Last week I had the sheer excitement of a delivery man showing up at my door with £70 worth of Chinese take away from Zing Zing, the North London restaurant whose philosophy is that ‘Chinese dishes should be made with great ingredients, no added chemicals and great customer service’.  The no added chemicals are what…

Mama’s Homemade Low Starch Peanut Butter Cookies

I have such a sweet tooth and am always searching for ways to make my favourite treats healthier.  I came across these low starch peanut butter cookies when my Mum was desperately trying to find ways to ease the inflammation of my genetic back disease early last year.  Luckily my illness isn’t in too much…

Livia’s Kitchen Mini Banoffee Pies

So after trying Livia’s Kitchen’s Raw Millionaire Bites (there’s a previous blog post about those), I was interested in visiting her website to see what recipes she offered for people to try at home.  I had some girls over for the weekend and we fancied some sweet treats without feeling too guilty, so Livia’s Kitchen…
