The Food Report: Picnicking

The Food Report: Picnicking

In a departure from our usual evening Nom Nom Clubs, this month we decided to go with a picnic. This was a slightly different style, with less of the communal cooking and chaos (although Olivia and I still got together for some of your preparations). Instead, we all arrived with our offerings, popped out some …

The Weekly Report

Watching Masterchef and The Office. I also went to see Richard Ayoade’s new film The Double. As it’s an adaptation of a Dostoyevsky novella it’s fairly dark and brooding, but it’s a real audiovisual treat and certainly left me with lots to think about. In particularly loved the use of sound, as well as music, throughout. I would definitely recommend …

The Drinks Report: Fending off a Cold

The Drinks Report: Fending off a Cold

This week I am under the weather. In many cases, quite literally, as Liverpool has decided to see out April with some very seasonal showers. But figuratively speaking, I’ve been coming down with something for a couple of weeks and over the last two days it’s really started to make me feel groggy, achy and …

The Drinks Report: Twinings Green Tea

I’ve mentioned my love for green tea before. I’m on a quest for the perfect cup now. The perfect cup will probably come from a loose leaf, but for day-to-day I am currently enjoying the Twinings range. Mint green tea is essentially a gateway tea. Everyone loves mint tea (you don’t? Keep drinking it, everyone …

The Food Report: Triple pudding

The Food Report: Triple pudding

A Sunday night meal at my Nanny’s usually means at least two delicious puddings to choose from (or rather say “yes, please” to both). Special occasions, though, call for extra sweet treats, especially with so many of us round the table. For Easter Sunday I found myself faced with three puddings. The first was hidden …

This weekend my very favourite group of friends traveled to Liverpool for the eighth edition of Nom Nom Club, our little supper club. We settled on a French theme for this weekend, and whilst we got off to a bad start with the Correspondents gig being cancelled, we were soon eating many delicious courses and …
