Bocconcino Restaurant, Mayfair, London

I love Mediterranean flavours and fresh seafood and…

There’s a new restaurant opened up in South Quay, Canary Wharf that’s causing a bit of a buzz.  Jazzgir has only been open for a few months but it’s already making a name for itself in the area.  We were invited along one night to try out Jazzgir and  see what this new concept in…

Côte Brasserie – Valentine’s Day Menu

I’ve always been a big fan of Côte Brasserie.  I love French food and although they have multiple restaurants all over the country, each one that I go to seems to have its own personality.  It feels like a little French Bistro and reminds me so much of the year I spent living in Paris….

Sweet Chilli Salmon with Sesame Seeds

I don’t tend cook a lot of Asian Recipes – I prefer Mediterranean foods, and the balance of flavours and spices in Asian cooking tends to be a little out of my comfort zone – (I’m working on it).  My Asian Sticky Chicken Thighs were a big hit in our house!  However, I do love…

Hemsley And Hemsley Cafe, Selfridges, London

Chilli, Garlic & Lime Salmon Traybake

Tonight I had my mum staying over with me and after a very meat-heavy week with Slow Cooked Brisket, Beef Bourguignon and Lamb Shoulder on the menu I decided to cook a nice healthy fish dish – I also wanted something easy and quick so that I wouldn’t have to spend too much time preparing…

Love Brunch at Bovino – Quinta do Lago – Portugal

When I wrote my Top Places to Eat in the Algarve Round-Up I wasn’t able to give Bovino Restaurant much of a review having only eaten there once.  However, Love Brunch is a new concept from Bovino Restaurant this year and having seen it advertised all over Quinta do Lago we thought we’d give it a go…

Lime & Garlic Salmon Skewers

Finally it seems Summer has arrived in England – which means more BBQ time!  I was heading back home to see my parents tonight and we decided it was time to fire up the barbie and have dinner outside.   We had some salmon in the fridge so we settled on salmon skewers, along with all…
