Who dat? Oh it’s you! I’ve needed to put a post up about this place for a while really, but procrastination is a hobby of mine so there we go and here we are. I live in Bow and regularly visit Hiland Cafe, down the road from me. It’s probably the place I go to the most for brunch actually and that’s why I need to recommend it to you all.

Where am I?! Naples. Ah, phew. That’s ok then. So it’s my last day in the city and I want to get some traditional Naples grub.. where should I go? Well located off a side road from the Toledo I found Trattoria Nanni. It was pretty unassuming and we weren’t even sure if it was open but we popped through the door and found some staff happy to greet and seat us.
Gino Sorbillo is a famous pizzeria in the historic centre of Naples and as I usually plan my holidays around food I naturally had to go. When I dropped the name into Google Maps a ton of results were brought up…turns out that just to a make it nice and confusing there are quite a few Sorbillo named fooderies on the same road… yaaaay! However, don’t be fooled and make sure you head to the right one!
I did some digging and managed to find the much loved Sorbillo online, only to find out that (probably unsurprisingly) there’s usually a wait to get a seat. As seems to be the theme for my European breaks in 2017, it was raining. The one week in Naples a year when it rains, and naturally that would coincide with my visit. This plus a wait didn’t sound too joyous but I wanted a good pizza so set off with brolly in hand to get me just that.
Ciao! Today, we make-a some-a past-a with Silvana from Tutti-a-Tavola. And I promise I won’t type in that poor Italian/English stereotypical phonetic hybrid any more. Promise.
Based in West London, Silvana runs pasta making classes every week, rotating the type of pasta each month to keep you on your toes. Interesting! She covers both the glutenny and gluten-free pastas from scratch: Tuesday and Saturday evenings for the glutenny amongst us and gluten-free on Sunday lunchtime. We opted for the gluten ‘standard’ pasta, and the flavour of the month was Tricolore Garganelli! Huzzayy! Colourful pasta fun!
Skinny Coffee is a 30 Day Program to help weight loss with only one cup of this coffee a day, drunk 15 minutes before you have your breakfast. With a slogan of “Make Coffee, Not Excuses” I thought hey, why not? Now I’m not saying I am overweight so please no hate there, it’s just over the last 6 months my clothes seem to be smaller – very selfish of them…. so I thought if I can start wearing them comfortably again then that would be a great feeling for me. No excuses!
I’m finishing off 2017 and welcoming you to our first post for Poland! I swept in here for a little pre-Christmas break to see what was what and basically eat my way through a few Winterry days. This is when I found Stacja Pasibus and I’m ruddy glad I did. In front of the entrance to one of the Christmas markets, this place was a frookin’ gem to walk into. I did have a little fear of “WHAT IF THEY HAVE NO SEATS?!” but our accidental timing was fortunate, so we grabbed a table straight away.
We’ve recently posted some delicious fondue recipes from Paxton & Whitfield, so now it’s time to let you know about some of their Christmas offerings for 2017! Imagine the scene…it’s Christmas Day…you’ve had your huge lunch and opened most of your presents, the heating is full blast and your loved ones are driving you a wee bit nuts. You look to your left and what do you see…?!
This week we had the immense pleasure of visiting the flagship Paxton & Whitfield store in Jermyn Street, Piccadilly to learn about their cheeses, a bit of history and taste some amazing fondues. Paxton & Whitfield kindly shared the fondue recipes with us, and this post will largely be sharing the love of these so you can stock up on your cheesy goodness and prep these for yourselves at home.
If you don’t know who Cadbury are then you really need to get back in your bunker and go back to being a mole man/woman. Right. Now we’ve established that those of you left reading do indeed know who this chocolate giant are, we can continue. Ain’t nobody got time to go into the history of Cadbrizzle (look, I am hip and cool …broadening the reach of this blog with my lingo)… so I’ll just say what this post is about. Drumroll please……. it;’s about the new Tiffin Bar. Huzzay!
