Meal to Share: Outdoors

I think it’s safe to say that I’m not an outdoorsy person. Hiking (or tramping, as NZers call it) and camping passed me by entirely in my childhood and adulthood. The only time I’ve ever properly camped somewhere in a tent without toilets and running water, was during our trip to Africa, and that was [...]

Popping candy cake

This post is for the Nuffnang Christmas Blogger Challenge – but if you read on, there’s a funky dessert as well. The challenge for this month is this: “Pick out the best blog post you wrote in 2010, and write a blog post which links to that post and explains why it’s your favourite.”

Station Hotel

I must be getting old(er) because I’ve become a big fan of going out for lunch in the weekend, rather than dinner. Why? Well, some positives: Lunch is more relaxed. Plus there’s more light in restaurants, which means it’s easier to take photos – always important to a food blogger. It’s nice being home in [...]

The Premises

I love a leisurely weekend cafe brunch, but I have quite specific brunch desires when it comes to eating out – the café must have interesting sounding savoury options. I don’t want to eat somewhere that just does eggs and toast and muesli. I can eat that at home! Alastair and I were down in [...]

International Incident Salt Party

Let’s talk about salt. Too much of it, and food is inedible. Too little of it, and food tastes so bland it may as well be inedible! Too much salt in our diets leads to health problems, and yet we require a small amount of salt to live. Not only do we use salt in [...]

Pocky/Pejoy series: Mango Mousse Pocky

It’s time for another flavour in the Pocky/Pejoy series! This time we have Mango Mousse Pocky. Whats the difference between mousse Pocky and normal Pocky? I’m not 100% sure, but it seems that the mousse sticks have a thicker cream coating around the biscuit stick. Like other Pocky flavours, inside the packet were two 24g [...]

Asparagus and gruyere tart

I can’t believe that April, Kat, Shellie and I started it a year ago. 52 themes later, one post and at least one recipe each week, [...]

Pocky/Pejoy series: Strawberry and Vanilla Pejoy

Regular readers might remember a post earlier this year about Pocky/Pejoy. Well… after that one post, I haven’t posted any more on the different flavours that Bro brought back from China/HK for me! I’ve been eating them (and purchasing more flavours) – it just hasn’t translated into blog posts. Tsk tsk. I’m determined to get [...]

Assorted UK photos, part 2

Another brief break from food for more photos. Back to food in my next post! Tate Modern; Borough Market; DeVizes; Bath; Roman Baths.

Cookbook Challenge: Week 51, Creamy

Recipe: Green tea ice cream Adapted from: Darina Allen’s Ballymaloe Cookery Course Wow, it’s the second to last week of the Cookbook Challenge! The theme for this week is “creamy” and guess what? I made something this week! Long time readers might remember my takoyaki post from last year. I never mentioned it on the [...]
