The Drinks Report: Simply Nectar Peach

  Just a very quick drinks report from me today sharing something I have recently loved. Friends will know that I love everything peachy, so I was particularly excited to find Simply Nectar peach juice at the Dockside Delifonseca. This little deli is well worth a trip to if you happen to be in Liverpool and…

The Food Report: A Croquembouche

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…

The Drinks Report: Green Tea Chai Latte

When I wrote my post about instant tea, I claimed that it was my first encounter with such a drink. Recently I realised that this was a tiny lie. Why? Because I’ve been slurping this instant chai latte for years. The Drink Me chai latte was a revelation found by my aunt in the hallowed…

The Food Report: A Weekend in Stroud Pt. 2

I promised a bonus Food Report from Stroud this week, so here it is! On Friday morning before my delicious lunch (more on that here) we popped into the newly-reopened Greyhound for a mid-morning coffee. This used to be more of a bar, and served the greatest espresso martini. I spent many a fun evening…

The Food Report: A Weekend in Stroud

Some of you may know I come from Stroud in Gloucestershire. It’s famous for wool production, lots of art including an incredible Fringe Festival, Cider with Rosie, Damien Hirst and Thomas the Tank Engine. Aside from all that, we have some pretty great food. We had the country’s first fully organic cafe and one of the…

The Food Report: Bakchich

    Last night I went to Bakchich on Bold Street for a little dinner and catch up with Kate. It’s pretty ridiculous that I haven’t been there before considering that I love any kind of street food and I especially love Lebanese food. We started out with some fresh mint lemonade. I continually rhapsodize about my…

The Food Report: East Avenue Bakehouse

It’s probably no secret to readers of this blog that I love brunch. So when a new place opens that might provide a brunch destination I’m all over it. East Avenue Bakehouse opened on Bold Street a couple of weeks ago (on International Women’s Day to be precise, for this is a women-led venture!) and I’ve…

The Drinks Report: Café Amaretto

I’ve always had more of an affinity with tea than coffee, but the occasional cup is a real treat. I picked up this Little’s Café Amaretto a few weeks ago. I love amaretto so this was a pretty natural choice, albeit an impulsive purchase. I really love the packaging and the idea of an instant coffee…

The Food Report: Crumble

Most of my meals begin with a craving for just one ingredient. I just ate two weeks of Mexican food because I had a craving for avocados that led into a deep need for black beans. This Sunday’s food-based love letter started with a pot in the corner of my eye in M&S. I absolutely…

The Drinks Report: Rum Punch

I swear when I started the drinks report I envisioned it being about tea and smoothies, but it seems to have taken a turn to the alcoholic. Punch is one of my favourite things – take all the drinks leftover from house parties, anything gross that you want to get rid of, some fruit and…
