Borough Market is Back!

June 22, 2017

It’s been a week since Borough Market opened after the terrorist attack and I went to spread some love as I can only imagine what the traders are going through. Often when bad news strikes as an outsider it is easy to move on to the next tragedy but for those directly affected it is not so easy. I have blogged about Borough Market before as it is probably one of my favourite places in London. When I first moved here I rented an apartment nearby with dreams that I’d visit regularly, although I never did I am convinced the spirit of the market made life in London better. 

After my visit last week I wanted to share some tips with you.  Continue Reading…

Poor mi (English translation: I’m surprised you have time to eat out, I wish I did). Does look pretty though, hope it tasted as nice.” I responded by calling him a donkey for doubting my cooking skills but knew that it was ‘bloggable’.

Pasta for the Soul

May 19, 2017

If you’re just joining me you might think that I only know how to cook pasta since my last recipe was “Quick Creamy Pasta” but when I decided yesterday that my lunch was too good not to share with you I forgot that in December 2015 I had already told you how I feel about pasta. Anyway my relationship with pasta is so deep that it could be featured week after week but don’t worry my waistline couldn’t handle it and so you don’t have to either.
