My latest tastecard adventures took me to a part of London that I am not too familiar with. Kings Road, Fulham. Or “The Kings Road” as it’s fondly known as. What perception is conjured up by Kings Road? Well, it was famous in the 1960’s for style icons Vivienne Westwood and Malcolm McLaren.
Nowadays, it still has a reputation for being one of London’s most fashionable shopping streets. In addition to this, it is also known as being residency for Fulham’s 4×4 mums and Made in Chelsea. Continue reading
Note to reader on “The Lost Posts”; This is a series of blog posts that I either started, or took photos with full intentions of blogging, and then life took over and I never got around to it. I actually wrote this particular post on my way to Atlanta in February 2015 – it’s taken me a year to publish.
I just love fried chicken. I know what you’re thinking. How very truly stereotypical. I mean I can live without chicken. If I were on a desert island (yes, sometimes I do think about this) and I had a choice of fish or chicken for the rest of my life, I would choose fish every time. Especially if seafood is thrown into that category. The options for fish outweigh chicken so much. There are so many types, ways to cook it and it never gets boring.
But chicken is SO good. I seriously don’t understand how vegetarians can give it up! Continue reading
So yesterday I overdosed on cheese. MASSIVELY.
After months of being nagged by my sister, we finally went to “When Mac Met Cheese“, which is a… oh right – you worked it out for yourself. Nice. Continue reading
I have a real bugbear for fake Yorkshire puddings. That is the likes of Aunt Bessie’s.
Don’t get me wrong – I am definitely GUILTY of buying a ready-made Yorkshire pud or two. I used to pick them up in the fridge aisles of supermarkets along with the beef I was planning to cook for Sunday dinner.
That is until I discovered how EASY they are to make – using Jamie Oliver’s recipe. The first time I made them, they didn’t come out so great, however I persevered and now I have them down to a T if I may say so myself. Continue reading
Last week (4th – 10th March 2013) was a special foodie week. It was British Pie Week. I’m British. So I baked the easiest midweek pie I could muster around a packed solid busy work week.
I’ve made Nigella’s Chicken and Bacon Pot Pie so many times its unbelievable. It’s so easy to make and looks perfect every time. I change bits and generally use whatever I can find in the fridge. The only compulsory additions are chicken, mushrooms and some sort of green veg (preferably broccoli or spinach). Here’s my own rough method.
If you read the Metro Newspaper on your daily commute then you may have come across a recipe deemed as “Ultimate Toad in the Hole“.
Metro and Guardian have a wonderful process of elimination where their writers find these ultimate methods (boiling an egg etc.) looking at the top chefs and agreeing or disclaiming their various traits.
I’m going to be honest, I didn’t read the detail of Chloe Scott’s Toad. I didn’t need to. I was reading the e-version of the article on my iPad and the photo alone won me over.
Even before breakfast I would have happily had a plate of this…
