Afternoon tea and an introduction to the Thursday Ladies

Thursday Ladies When I first moved to Amsterdam, I needed to make new friends and made it my mission to find some like-minded foodies to enjoy this charming city with. Well either Amsterdam is full of fabulous foodies or there was some kind of universal law of attraction going on...
Sexy veggie bourrgars

Sexy veggie bourrgars

Don’t be so suspicious of a veggie burger; these are so good! The trick is to give them a bit of a kick so don’t skimp on the cayenne and as with any burger, the trimmings are oh so important. We like to set out all of the extras on...

Posh Nosh – Truffle Potato Crisps

Talk about posh nosh! Today we made crisps (aka potato chips) from truffle potatoes. Ever seen one of these things before? They are purple!

Chocolate & Rosemary Loaf with Olive Oil & Maple Drizzle

Tea, cake and girls go together like monkeys, trees and bananas and when your friends include master bakers, your bananas have to cut the mustard and get creative. So, for our afternoon tea date we made a loaf laced with chunks of chocolate. We paired the chocolate with rosemary (those two love each other) and...

Sunshine on a plate! Our colourful winter salad

It’s a grey, rainy day in Amsterdam. The days seem to be getting longer but the city is cold, wet and windy and making us hope for spring.

Conker (Chestnut) Soup

Conker (Chestnut) Soup

I’d like to share a brief reflection on some Christmas banter; it reads like poetry! Lil’ bro: What you doing? Me: Making chestnut soup. Lil’ bro: Looks like conkers. Me: These are chestnuts, conkers are horse chestnuts and inedible. Lil’ bro: I’d kick your ass at a game of conkers, lets go. Me: These are...

Vegan and gluten free mince pies

Vegan and gluten free mince pies

Skip this paragraph if you’re British for I’m about to explain what a mince pie is.  It seems like an odd thing to do for me as it’s such a common festive food in the UK that I dare say there isn’t a Brit who doesn’t come into contact with this sweet little pie on...

Film, Theatre and Cheesecake with Aoife

We met up with film & theatre producer Aoife Madden in fancy London town last week for a natter about why Aoife’s return to the theatre is getting the London lovies all excited and more importantly to sample her favourite strawberry cheesecake, which we’re told (and we’re inclined to agree) is the best in London!...
Mascarpone cups, my Italian indulgence

Mascarpone cups, my Italian indulgence

Ok it’s a little naughty but creamy Mascarpone is one of my favourite indulgences. Perhaps it’s my Italian roots, but I suspect it’s more to do with the speed and simplicity of this perfect little dessert that gets me making it time and time again. If you don’t have much confidence in the kitchen, this...
