The Food Report: The London Carriage Works

Last week, meeting a very dear friend for a reunion before he jetted off to another far-away country, I went along to The London Carriage Works on Hope Street for a delightful dinner.

The Food Report: Plum and Almond Crumble

The WOMAD Report

A few weekends ago I headed to WOMAD. This was my fifth (or sixth?) time heading to Charlton Park, as it’s so close to home and is just our favourite festival to jump around at, and so this Weekly Report is dedicated to its glory!

The Drinks Report: Phom Tea

This evening I accompanied this beaut of a sunset with a cup of Phom Tea. I was excited to see this tea on Dragon’s Den a few weeks ago (in its previous incarnation as the Teabox Company), as I instantly recognised the boxes from the shops of Liverpool. When I found it in Matta’s I…

It was time for another Nom Nom Club this weekend, and in honour of a very special housewarming we visited Exeter via Westeros for a Game of Thrones themed feast. We ate: a beef, mushroom and red wine (two bottles) pie (I can’t emphasise enough how good this was), two slowed cooked pork – one…
