Quick Creamy Pasta

December 10, 2015

Quick Creamy PastaI’ve been absent for a little but you can blame my new venture, Three Little Birds, in Brixton for that. By day it’s a café and boutique, by night it’s a kitchen and rum bar; all inspired by Jamaica, so come say hi soon. I literally live there, morning, noon and night but recently I was asked to share a quick recipe for an interview so I had to make the time to cook and take pictures.  Continue Reading…


It’s A Pork Thing – Dalston Yard Street Feast Review

I guess that’s London for you, Summer is hit or in this year’s case a complete miss (minus the 5 days we all enjoyed), and the bleak weather can often leave me feeling homesick. When the temperatures drop and the clouds take over it is a clear indication that the season for comfort foods is fast approaching if not already here. Comfort foods are very personal. If we were all to make a list of our favourite ones the dishes would be very different but what we feel when we eat them would be very similar. In short the dishes that make us feel warm and cuddly inside, or brighten up a dreadful day, or transport us to our favourite places and make us relive our finest memories; those are comfort foods. I have many but one would have to be Cornmeal Porridge.  Continue Reading…
