Eating in Bath
^ Sally Lunn’s Buns. Apparently you haven’t been to Bath until you’ve Sally Lunn-ed. ^ More of Sally Lunn’s Buns. I thought it was going to be a little bread/cake shop. Cute little cafe/restaurant, but a little overrated I think. ^ At the UK’s first-ever coffee festival. Origin’s Bolivia Cup of Excellence was naturally and subtly sweet. I preferred it to...
Celebrations at Kiraku
^ And what did this hold? A whole bunch of oshibori! Yay! I think I may have found the perfect Japanese local.. ^ かにクリームコロッケ. My not-so-secret weakness, the kani cream croquette. It would be torturous walking home from the gym in Tokyo, past all the little restaurants, and worst of all, the fried food stall — especially with the smiling lady handing out free samples of gooey, freshly...
Dinner: Launceston Place
I had the pleasure and privilege of being invited to join a friend at this fancy-pants place a few Saturdays ago. The problem with such fine dining-type establishments is that the act of taking out one’s camera and photographing one’s dishes is, well, a bit embarrassing. As the night went on however, the wine was clearly kicking in, and I eventually didn’t care as much. To...
Dinner: Mussels with linguine
Pork Pies from Leicestershire
Spot the UK n00bs. A friend bought these for us from her trip to Leicestershire. We all thought they were apple and cranberry pies and were about to have them with ice cream. Just as well we sliced into them first! Absolutely MEATY, tasty pork pies they turned out to be!
Lunch: Flaked smoked trout on smashed potatoes and...
Brunch: Nude Espresso
On a miserable Sunday morning a few weeks ago, we decided to try out the brunch at Nude. ^ Flat white. Pretty and tasty, but the crema wasn’t creamy enough. It’s hard to get an eggs benny that stands out, but Nude’s eggs benny did a fine job. Along with the egg poached exactly how I like ‘em, I also liked the little touches like pesto and the buttery, fluffy yet...
Dinner: Salmon en croute
Dinner from a few nights ago.
Dinner: Bow ties with ricotta
.. and a little chorizo. And maybe too much parmesan.
Dinner: Chicken Curry
Creamy Thai-style curry. A la J.
The UK's First Coffee Festival
I’m going to be in Bath for this! Woohoo! http://ow.ly/1L5iU
Interview with one of my fave chefs, Jun Tanaka.
Spotted River Cafe’s Ruth Rogers at Fortnum & Mason yesterday. I’d recognise her voice anywhere!
Dinner: Prosciutto-wrapped, quark-stuffed chicken...
Incredibly excited about fancy, almost-fully-paid-for dinner at @LauncestonPlace tonight! Must wear something with give.
Dinner: Delia's Three-Cheese Pasta
A la J. Not sure if it’s kosher to call one of Delia’s dishes BITCHIN’, but this recipe was indeed, BITCHIN’!
Dinner: Foil-baked fish
With leeks, lemon, chili, herbs, butter and white wine..

Stuck for dinner ideas?
Can’t remember where I got this link from.. http://ow.ly/1GU3X Hee.
You know it was a good night when you’re eating a bacon sandwich the next morning.
Lunch: Ricotta + cherry tomato tart
Tried to replicate what I had at Floriditas earlier this year.
Rosa's Modern Thai
A few snacks from Rosa’s in Spitalfields. Rubbery and chewy squid dish :/ Much nicer lamb dish.
Kipferl Austrian Deli
Small lil cafe. Big flavours.
