Dinner at the Admiral Codrington, Chelsea, London

Last night we were treated to dinner at the Admiral Codrington in Chelsea (or The Cod as it’s affectionately known).  I’ve been to this gastro pub a few times before but only to drink, never for dinner.  They have a cute little terrace to the side of the main building which is perfect for sunny…

Chocolate Espresso Pots with TASSIMO My Way Brewer

I’m one of those people who just can’t get going in the morning without a coffee!  I think if it’s possible, Dan is even worse than I am!  We both like our coffee super strong and so when TASSIMO offered to let me try out their new My Way machine I jumped at the chance. …

Lausanne for Foodies – From Fondue to Fine Dining in Switzerland

Recently I was invited to Switzerland for the weekend to eat, drink and be merry.  I was on a tour of Lausanne for Foodies and I loved every bite!  Lausanne is a beautiful town on the shores of Lake Geneva (or Lac Léman as it’s actually called), in Switzerland.   Getting to Lausanne Lausanne is about…

CERU Soho, London – Levantine Restaurant

When I think of small sharing plates, the cuisine that tends to spring to mind is Spanish.  Tapas is such a fun way to eat as I love being able to try a little bit of a lot of different flavours.  Recently I’ve also been able to discover the Italian version of tapas and tonight…

The Easy Way to see a Broadway Show with TripAdvisor

“They say the neon lights are bright on Broadway!”  One of the things I definitely wanted to do during our New York trip was see a Broadway show.  I’m a huge fan of musicals and have grown up hearing about the bright lights of Broadway!  Dan less so!  He’s not a huge musical fan so…

Sparkling Apple Wine – The New Champagne? from Thatchers Family Reserve

This weekend we had a small family reunion on the cards!  Some of Dan’s family live overseas and they were in the country so we decided to throw a celebratory BBQ.  And every good BBQ deserves a little bit of sparkle!  Recently I was gifted some sparkling apple wine from Thatchers Family Reserve and it…

Socca Flatbreads

Whenever I ask someone on a grainfree diet what the one thing they miss eating most is, the answer is inevitably bread!  I’m no different!  I spend a great deal of time in the kitchen coming up with bread alternatives.  I have Grain Free Sandwich Bread, Foccacia and CornBread recipes on the blog already and…

Les Caves Ouvertes de Vaud – Région du Léman, Switzerland

This weekend I was lucky enough to be on a Foodie Tour of Lausanne and to experience Les Caves Ouvertes de Vaud.  Literally meaning ‘Open Cellars,’ this is a weekend of wine set against the beautiful backdrop of Lake Geneva (or Lac Léman as it’s actually called). Taking place in the canton (region) of Vaud, Les…

Talli Joe – Covent Garden, London, UK

Talli Joe makes the claim on its website that it is voted the Best Indian Restaurant in London.  In a city with literally hundreds if not thousands of Indian restaurants, this is a steep claim to make so it was time to put it to the test.  We were invited along one evening to try…

Bacon Wrapped Dates – Devils on Horseback

Sticky, sweet, salty and crispy, these bacon wrapped dates are a flavour overload!  However, they’re so easy to make and there’s only two ingredients, the bacon and the dates!  This makes them perfect appetisers if you follow the SCD or a Paleo diet.  Along with my Grain Free Blinis or my Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus, they’re…
