Unconsciously eating healthy at The Weight Watchers Feel Good Pop-Up Cafe, Hoxton Square

21 May

ww%2520feel%2520good%2520cafe[1]When I told my friends I was going to be dining at a weight watchers pop up restaurant, one of them responded “Weight Watchers?! The last thing I want to do when eating out is watch my weight.” How wrong she was – and her comment showed how much this restaurant was needed, to show that it is possible to eat tasty healthy food without having to think too much about it.

Throwback Thursday; Michel Roux Jr at Taste of London 2012

27 Nov

Earlier this week I published a blog post on Taste of Christmas 2013 which I visited with my friend Yvette and her son Dylan who just HAD to meet Michel Roux Jr.

It was great to see him and brought back memories of when my friend Chanelle and I met him in 2012 and I had him sign a copy of Cooking with the Masterchef.

Here’s a lovely pic that we had taken way back when… (ok it was only last year!)

Meeting Michel Roux Jr at Taste of Christmas 2013; Tobacco Dock, East London

25 Nov

Turkey, gnocchi, warm gin brews and Michel Roux Jr, yup – it can only mean one thing – Taste of Christmas 2013!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Everywhere you go. Especially in Tobacco Dock which was taken over last weekend for the annual Taste of Christmas festival. I had wondered why they had moved from the venue of last year, Excel. All became clear when I watched the news on Saturday morning and saw that a 50th anniversary for Doctor Who was taking place at Excel, meaning that Taste of Christmas had to move their set-up to Tobacco Dock, East London.

Happy Valentine’s Day Eve, Eve | Scallops with Bacon + Haddock Provençal Style

14 Feb

Ok…. just so you know, I wrote this on 12/02/2013 but then my director decided to take me out to get sloshed last night so I’m posting a day late! Boom.

*****

Yesterday it was Shrove Tuesday, typically known as the day when EVERYONE makes pancakes and everywhere that sells pancakes makes a killing and has ridiculous queues. My Old Dutch and the pancake stall on Berwick Street were high on my AVOID list.

Instead of “celebrating” Shrove Tuesday I decided to celebrate Valentines Day two days early – known to me as Valentines Day Eve, Eve. Why? Because the OH is off to Paris today for work. Oh yes. Paris. The city of romantics. He won’t be in Paris for Valentine’s Day though. He will be in Tunisia by tomorrow. When I heard this I asked him “don’t your company consider events when planning your work trips?” His reply “yes, except that they don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day in a Muslim country”. Touché.
