Restaurant Quality Ingredients Delivered

Wolf and Lamb Delivery – Restaurant Quality Ingredients Delivered.

As much of a lover of modern advances and conveniences… I’ve never been a fan of online grocery shopping… There is something about perusing over the perfect tomatoes, selecting that sensational steak and getting inspired by something that has just come into season. 

For the time being those days are gone…. Well not really gone, but have lost a little bit of their sparkle.    Well, that sparkle was shining again when I received [gifted] this delivery from Wolf and Lamb Delivery.   I mean who does not love Restaurant Quality Ingredients Delivered to their door?

The Tastiest Holiday Romance – Jersey Royal, Creme fraiche, Rosemary & Brown Butter Pizza

Have you ever fell in love when you were travelling?  I mean change your life kinda falling in love?  A love Like never before kinda love?

That happened to me on my recent trip to Malmo Sweden.  I’ve always fancied getting up close and personal with a swede (the person not the veg) when I visited.   Never in a million years would I have thought that I’d travel to Sweden and fall completely head over hills with an Italian. An Italian hussy that’s loved by most people in the world.

Boursin Stuffed Dough Balls

[ This post is part of a paid collaboration with Boursin]

Today is all about dough balls…homemade Boursin ones, in fact! All too often dough balls are relegated to a starter or side dish, but I think that this delicious twist on a classic dish deserves to be the star of the show. ⁣

These cheesy Boursin stuffed dough balls will have any pizza demoted to a side dish. Serve them with your favourite pizza sauce, garlic butter or probably just more of that tasty Boursin Velvety for dipping… because there is no such thing as too much of a good thing. ⁣

Sweet & Sour Chicken Fakeaway

Sweet & Sour Chicken Fakeaway

[ This post is part of a paid collaboration with Peperami ]

It’s funny what lockdown does to people… I’m obsessed with cleaning… I miss the gym hardcore and I’m craving things I don’t normally crave like Sweet and sour chicken.

So when Peperami.tv challenged me to create a fake-away using their Pep’d up Chicken bites… It was a no brainer. I had to make a Sweet & Sour Chicken Fakeaway. The easy answer would be to chuck the bites in a sweet and sour sauce. In reality, I was craving Hong Kong-style sweet and sour chicken with that crispy coating. But I could not figure out how to make it work.

I did not want the chicken to dry out as its already cooked…. Then it hit me to break the rules (on the packaging) and freeze the bites. So when you cook the chicken bits, the coating crisps up and the bites just heat through.

Don’t believe me? Try it for yourself.

[ This post is part of a paid collaboration with Paxo/Bisto ]

Unless you have been living under a rock… it’s impossible to miss the Katsu Sando. I love them and with this lockdown, I’m missing them like mad so I thought I’d make them at home and created a Southern US Style Katsu Sando.

I fakeaway’d this Sando with the help of Bisto Southern Style gravy & Paxo Southern Fried Bread Crumbs.⁠ ⁠ They are kinda easy to make, heaps of fun to eat and so insta-worthy.⁠ ⁠

The Art Of Blending In When Travelling.

I’ve always been told that the best way to travel is to experience places like a local.   Now the best way to achieve that is blend in.  The benefits of blending in and acting a bit less like a tourist and more like a local never be underestimated.

Blending in can afford you a more intimate look at the local culture, one that may not be granted to outsiders.  If you look and act like a tourist then you will be treated like one. If you want to walk the walk, it’s going to have to be their walk. And don’t assume that your custom is their custom.

More important than that is safety. Most criminals can spot tourists from dress, mannerisms, and the way they act a mile off.  Blending in will not make you completely impervious from pickpockets and scam artists,  but it can help protect you.   That said, you will still need to keep your whits about you even if you blend in.

Sea Containers – Seafood by the Seaside errr Thames Side

Eating all the seafood at Sea Containers Restaurant seems like the right thing to do… no?

I’ve always loved the rooftop bar (The 12th Knot) at Sea Containers  , I don’t know why I’ve never ventured to the Thames level restaurant before. Maybe because I think that it’s attached to zhuzhy hotel, where I thought the food would be style over substance.
