This is a just because I love this picture moment and this is how a lettuce should look. One of the many delicious vegetables on offer at La Fromagerie.

The Charcouterie Plate.

It has Duck Rillette, It has celeriac and a selection of delicious hams and salamis and of course some cornichons. Back at La Fromagerie for a pre party snack with the wonderful Miranda Joyce.

A Little bit of Pan De Mania.

Pan De Mania.

If you see Pan De Mania at a festival please go and say you read it first here. The Pizzas were superb. A wafer thin crust and very interesting toppings including caramelised onions and walnuts.

Kimms Pimms

This is my stall that i ran at a local Folk Festival. I could not resist showing you this picture. The profits went to Charity and the rain and gail force winds did not stop people buying. Apparently they are quite warming after a few!!!

Baked Salmon and Basil Mayonnaise.

I used a side of Salmon which i wrapped in foil with a splash of olive oil, a splash of white wine lemon juice and sea salt. Bake for 20 minutes in a medium oven. Mix some ready made mayonnaise fresh if possible with a large handful of finely chopped basil some olive oil and lemon juice. Serve with big bunches of watercress and wedges of lemon.

This is a tap....

that was on the counter at Tap and Packed coffee shop. The glass was frozen when it was handed to me. This is attention to detail and made me smile. Tap and Packed is a great spot to drink delicious coffee with great staff who treat coffee making with the respect it deserves and they do great cakes too. Tap and Packed. 114 Tottenham Court Road,London W1T 5AH.

Sweet Miso and brown rice Porridge with Mango and Yoghurt. Granger.

Oh No....Not Granger.

Yes it is Grainger and I swore I would never walk through their doors again as they do win the prize for the rudest staff in London but they do such a good breakfast that if you are feeling strong enough you might as well just try one more time. Granger.175 Westbourne Grove,London W11 2SB.


I am sorry that this is appearing yet again but their cakes just make such a great photo and it is nearly impossible to walk past and not go in for just a little something on your way home. Princi.135 wardour Street,London W1F OUT.

Bone Daddies.

Black Sesame Ice Cream as if things could not get any better.

Bone Daddies.

This is a taste sensation. This was the best lunch I have had out in a long time. This is a great place with great people great music and a great menu. The only way to truly understand the beauty of this dish is to go. It the Tantamen 2. Bone daddies. 31 Peter Street,London W1F OAF.

The Best Thing Ever.

This is a mango splitter. This was introduced to me by my friend Sam and I am passing it onto you. Pure Genius from Laleland. Go on line order one now and why not buy a banana bag why you are at it.

My Asparagus and Spinach Rissotto.

Fry a red onion in olive oil with some garlic. Add the rice depending on how many you are serving. Add a glass of white wine and keep stirring. Then add vegetable stock and some more white wine until the rice is cooked. Add seasoning and cut up some asparagus into small pieces. Add the asparagus and some handfuls of fresh spinach. Keep stirring. Then when the asparagus is cooked turn off the heat add a few knobs of butter juice of a lemon and some parmesan. Leave for 2 minutes and serve.

A Perfect Warm Bakewell Tart.

No more words needed. It was cooked for me and i have been dreaming about it ever since.

Living It Large.

This is a cocktail trolley. All you have to o between 7pm and 9pm is call a number and the bar man comes and makes you a cocktail in your room. Just to get you in the mood for your night out in Miami. The Soho House. Miami Beach.

Koya Cont.

Oops just realised no noodle pictures....Koya specialises in Udon dishes but has exotic daily specials and also this wonderful offering of tempura on rice.


Thank you Noodle for introducing to me this place. I am now annoyingly hooked. Yes annoyingly because the maitre d is so annoying. You cannot book hence the long queue which I think brings huge amounts of entertainment to him as you are kept waiting even though their are often numerous amounts of empty seats. You do not say anything as the gift awaiting is so overwhelmingly good that once inside the stress of the outside experience melts away. This is the house salad with a dressing that is addictive and pickled beetroot. Koya 49 Frith Street,London W1D 4SG.

The Tin Shed.

One of my new favourite new places. The Tin Shed is a Bistro and Bakery. The lovely Laura will talk you through the dishes and baked offerings all made in the kitchen downstairs. What a delight and to me a necessity to eat fresh sumptuous food where no corners have been cut on ingredients no microwaves can be detected and the cooking has been done with love and passion. The Tin Shed.33a All Saints Road,W11 1HE.

Kerbisher and Malt.

Horaay a great fish and Chip restaurant in Shepherds Bush. All the fish is sustainable it is cooked to order so nothing sits around and the all other ingredients are sourced locally. There is a large communal table and the atmosphere is lively and friendly. Take away or Eat In but avoid the rush hour. Kirbisher and Malt.164 Shepherds Bush Road,London W6.

Im Back with a Taste Of Honey.

Sarit and Itemar are now the hot restaurant on everyones lips the queues are long so please book well ahead especially for dinner. This is my 3 time weekly breakfast of toasted milk bun with home made preserves and perfect coffee. Honey and Co, 25a Warren Street,London W1T 5LZ.
