Oh so delicious seafood at Dory’s in Margate

Do you ever just need a day off? I have been so busy I felt I needed to do something different, get out of town. Perhaps I was feeling just a tiny bit claustrophobic and we decided to spend the day in Margate. Margate is quite close but it offered a change of scenery and … Continue reading

An Ipswich mini break, The Good Food Festival & Spaghetti

I love food festivals and when The Great British Food Festival came (fairly) close to my part of the world I couldn’t wait to go. The closest town was Ipswich. I didn’t know Ipswich very well but booked the Salthouse Harbour Hotel in Neptune Quay. The hotel is funky, modern with old building charm in … Continue reading

Sweden before the lock down

Norwegian Forrest Cat

There is a saying, and I am sure you heard it, don’t postpone to tomorrow what you can do today. It is great advice and I didn’t adhere to it when I postponed my trip to Sweden to see friends and family. In my defense I had no idea that a global pandemic was lurking, … Continue reading

Seafood lunch at Parsons, Covent Garden

Brandade Egg Avruga caviar

Since I moved to the Kent coast from London I feel a lot closer to the food we eat. The butcher sells meat from nearby farms, the lamb grazes on heritage land, if you follow the seasons there is plenty of locally grown fruit and vegetables and you can buy locally caught, sustainable fish off … Continue reading

Food, Bigger than the plate & a London foodie day

Food Bigger than The Plate

Very often I see exhibitions and events that I want to go to. Usually they are long gone by the time I actually remember and I missed them. Could this be age perhaps? Or just being busy? I don’t know but I knew when the exhibition Food, Bigger than the Plate was launched I really … Continue reading

Every now and then you come across someone that you just click with. A few years ago I met someone who became a very close friend. We bonded over our love of good food and as we ate our way through delicious dinners and realized we had lots in common. Over the years we didn’t … Continue reading

I lived in London for many years and one of the best thing about this city is the food. There is an amazing variety of, well, pretty much every cuisine in the world. There are of course just as many, if not more, bad or even terrible restaurants as there are good ones but reading … Continue reading

Food inspired by the Barbary coast

The Barbary Neal's Yard Covent Garden

Every now and then a restaurant opens in London and I just know I want to go there. It has nothing to do with fancy food or being expensive, it is about flavor. When The Barbary opened I knew I wanted to go there and try the food. The Barbary coast covers Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia … Continue reading

Delicious Malaysian food in Deal

three layer crispy pork belly

The other day I was asking the fishmonger if there would be any crabs this weekend. He scratched his head and said it would either be an abundance or very few, if any. All this had to do with the full moon and the tides, I feel like I learn something about the sea every … Continue reading
