If you’re not sure that you want to go out and buy gifts for everyone this year, why not make them instead?
Something homemade is perfect to give to a host of a party, have your children make for friends or their teacher, or even to give to everyone in your family on the big day. And after all, who doesn’t love a gift they can eat?
I feel like cheese is the most wonderful accompaniment to Christmas.
And when it’s all melty and paired with something sweet or fruity, it’s even better. Think cheddar with chutney or manchego with quince. Continue reading
Is there anything better than afternoon tea?
Unlimited sandwiches, sweet treats and cups of tea is a joyful experience in itself, but having it with a Christmas theme goes another step further. Continue reading
When it comes to Christmas, cranberries are always at the top of my shopping list.
I love fresh ones to make cranberry sauce and dried ones to bake with and, honestly, what better thing to make with them than cookies. Continue reading
The Chilcano is one of Peru’s best loved drinks, alongside the Pisco Sour of course.
Mint and dark chocolate has to be one of my favourite flavour combinations.
Plus, peppermint and chocolate is everyone’s Christmas favourite, right?!
I love to buy chocolate mint creams all year round, but I feel like in December I just doubly love to have them in the house. They make me feel all festive. This recipe came about because I wanted to make my own mint creams, but then I got cravings for tiffin and rocky road, which are pretty biscuit-y, so I thought why not combine them (but in a much simpler way)?

If you saw my post a few weeks back, you’ll know that I made a fair few new food discoveries while I was home in Cambridge for the summer. One of those was Trinity.
Trinity is right in the centre of town, not surprisingly on Trinity Street and just across from the university college of the same name. Continue reading
Granola is a great way to start the day. Like a crumbled up cookie for breakfast.
Dessert. Breakfast. Happy times. Continue reading
Padella is a restaurant on the edge of Borough Market in London and they serve up some of the most exquisite pasta I have ever eaten.
Be prepared to wait a long old while to get a seat though, as they are super popular and it’s first come, first served. But it’s all completely worth it. I promise. Continue reading
Every time I go back home to Cambridge I love to visit my old favourites, obviously, but I also really enjoy trying new places and dishes too.
I always make a list of places that have opened that have tempted me to try, or recommendations from friends, or even places that are others’ tried and tested favourites that I haven’t had the chance to visit yet.
2018 was a good year of new food for me and although there was more than there is on this list, I’ve rounded it out to 12 of them. Plus, I’ve also added one of my boyfriend’s new favourites that he genuinely couldn’t get enough of while we were there. I’d like to say that a couple of these places are not new discoveries, but the dishes are and they just had to be shared. Continue reading
This is one of the yummiest traybakes of all time.
My home town of Cambridge has some amazing places to eat.
Pint Shop is a restaurant/bar located just off of Market Square in the centre of Cambridge. The decor is the perfect balance between rustic pub and modern eatery, and the food is just amazing. Their drinks list is pretty special too, with a changing draft beer list and a selection of around 100 gins including one of their own. Continue reading
