A couple of weeks ago I took a trip to Wyken Vineyards.
There were lots of little lambs, blossom and wine. It was pretty idyllic! Continue reading
Summertime is all about ceviche.
It’s the perfect dish for a hot summer lunchtime. It’s cool, refreshing and absolutely delicious and makes a way better alternative to a salad. Continue reading
Amsterdam is probably one of my favourite cities in the world. I love the way of life there, full of food, canals and bikes. There’s a ton of apple pie, pancakes, croquettes and dutch genever. It’s wonderful.
We’ve visited a couple of times recently and because of all the great places we found I wanted to collate some that you wouldn’t want to miss out on. So, there’ll be a mix of food spots, museums, galleries, stores and public spaces that we would absolutely recommend to everyone. I say a mix, but honestly, it’s mainly food. I can’t help myself.
I’ve only ever visited during spring/summer, but I think Amsterdam would be a great place to take a city break over the Christmas period. However, it’s not a ‘one-season-only’ city, so whenever you visit will be just as lively and charismatic.
I’m splitting my edit over two parts as I cannot possibly fit everything into one post. It would literally just be endless and you might lose your favourite place amongst all the others.
I hope you enjoy a wander through this gorgeous Dutch city and find some places that inspire you to visit or help you to plan an upcoming trip…. Continue reading
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
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
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
New York, New York, what a wonderful town….
And wonderful it sure is, especially the food and drink scene. From fancy restaurants and rooftop bars to markets and traditional street food, New York City has it all. There is so much to be savoured and never enough time to try it all, so I thought I would share a few of my favourite finds from my most recent visit to the Big Apple.
I hope you find something to tickle your tastebuds! Continue reading
La Casa de Gloria is my absolute favourite place to eat when I’m in Punta Hermosa (one of the beach towns south of Lima), and to be honest I crave their food at least once a week. I’ve genuinely been begging my boyfriend for the last couple of weeks to drive us down so I can get my fix. Luckily, the warm weather is here, which means a beach trip is definitely on the horizon… Continue reading
Normally I visit a location a fair few times before I write about it on here, just to make sure it really is as good as I think (Astrid & Gastón, Hanzo, Tanta), although there are special occasions like Lima Food Week or Lima Restaurant Week where I have shared some places that I had only visited once but think would be a good option to visit, especially with the one-off discount (Mayta, Malabar, La Nacional).
However, there have been occasions where I visit somewhere and I just know that I’ll keep going back to visit whenever I can. This happened to me a while ago with El Pan de la Chola, and now with Cafe de Lima. Continue reading
