Awesome things about San Food-cisco

We’ve been visiting Ben in San Francisco and, with only one day left in this city of seafood, cakepops and burritos, I thought I’d share with you some of the best foodie discoveries we’ve made. At the Knead Patisserie – hidden behind Local Mission Eatery – I ate one of the yummiest chocolate cookies I have […]

The Company Shed

High up on my long list of things I love sits champagne and exploring.  Not far behind you’ll find the English seaside and all food associated with it.  Three years ago I discovered a place that combines all of these things.  That place is a wooden shack on the edge of an Essex salt marsh […]

H Forman & Son

I can say with confidence that we have dined at the most British of British restaurants. It’s in the capital overlooking the site of the 2012 Olympics, it dishes up salmon that’s been ‘London cured’ on the premises since 1905, it serves glorious syrup sponge puddings steaming in individual Tate & Lyle tins. Oh, and […]

Beans on toast

A very british food and one of my top 5 comfort foods (particularly when hung over), beans on toast is a classic dish. Dead simple, delicious and utterly unpretentious. Heinz have opened a temporary “It has to be Heinz” cafe. It’s open from 7am-3pm for the next couple of days (closing Thursday 14th) on Shoreditch […]

Ben and I recently met up in Boston for a Music Hackday, we took the chance to do explore the local area, and follow some recommendations. Here’s a round up of the best bits. Breakfast It’s a meal I usually skip, it comes with usually getting up late. But armed with some local recommendations and […]

On tour in San Francisco

This blog started over a year ago, when Ben and I lived together in London. About a year ago Ben moved out to San Francisco and rather than killing off the site it’s meant we’ve had a lot more variety. Mostly finding and posting recipes to try and make each other jealous. For the last […]

Thorough Bread Bakery, San Francisco

Ben extolls the wonders of the humble sandwich made well, and reviews his local bakery; Thorough Bread and Pastry.

Afternoon Tea at Fortnum and Mason

Mother’s Day is commercial bunkum. However, there’s nothing bad to be said about treating your mum to a never-ending tower of little treats and a decent cup (or three) of tea. I went for classic Earl Grey but, if you’ve got more ambitious tea tastes than me, Fortnum’s offers many rare teas including the amazing […]

Seafood in Hastings

When I was last back home in Hastings I visited White’s Seafood & Steak Bar, although the name may sound a bit trashy “Surf and Turf” it’s a nice little restaurant that serves great fresh seafood. For a main I had Thai style swordfish, tenderly cooked and served on a bed of noodles, pak choi […]

The Boiling Pot, Austin TX

Austin, supported by an annual influx of geeks every year, supports an intimidating quantity of eateries. Joyously, many of them are very, very good indeed. One of the more unique experiences is The Boiling Pot, a seafood restaurant of simple premise: Make selections based on the number in your party and the quantity of seafood […]
