A Tanqueray Brunch

Leave a Comment
There is nothing in life that makes me quite as happy as a boozy brunch. Especially when it involves gin. 

We all brought along a handful of ingredients and Soph and Bex rattled around in the kitchen and knocked up this impressive spread. We had a fennel and orange salad, tabbouleh and roast parsnip and sweet potato fries dunked in houmous - The dream.



So whist the girls prepared this, I was on gin duty!! 



I decided on grapefruit & thyme G&T's and this is how you make them:

You will need: 
Ice
A generous glug of Tanqueray (no measure required...) 
Pink grapefruit juice 
Fevertree Tonic 
Fresh grapefruit 
Spring of thyme 

How to: 
Pour your Tanqueray on ice 
Add 1/4 glass of pink grapefruit juice
Top up with Fevertree tonic 
Add 2 slices of thinly sliced grapefruit 
Finish with a sprig of thyme 
Drink it all and repeat lots of thymes 

They were delciously refreshing with a tinge of sharpness and we drank a lot of them. (as you should at a boozy brunch)


So if there is anything I can persuade you to do with a sunny afternoon, it is to grab your girls and do this. 


We sat, ate, laughed and sipped and had the best Saturday.

KERB Camden

Leave a Comment
The latest edition to the KERB family has popped up in Camden and oh boy, it's a good one. Stalls upon stalls on sweet, sweet street food.

If you're vegetarian, vegan or the biggest meat eater out there - you will find something delicious within the 35 stalls.

These were my favourite things:

Halloumi fries from Oli Baba's - yes, that's right. Sticks of halloumi, deep fried and drizzled with a tangy dressing and sprinkled with fresh herbs and pomegranate.



The Patate - this was my favourite. Nothing says French cuisine like a beef bourguignon burger, it was grilled with the cheese melted on top and put into a squidgy bun. Simple but amazing and I would highly recommend trying this one!




Toastits- best name ever. We had the avocado and Bloody Mary toasties sprinkled with bacon. These would be the most amazing brunchtime/lunchtime snacks and I will certainly be finding them one lunchtime for toasties and tea.




Ghetto Grillz - I went for the Rueben with salt beef and melted cheese. When it comes to bagels it simply has to be done. It was a messy eat but completely worth it.




Blu Top - with all the savory, there has to be some sweet. We went for the ice cream sandwiches. I had the Sea Monkey ice cream which was dark chocolate with peanuts and a cinnamon cookie. The perfect end to an evening of eating.




It's worth mentioning that the drinks are also great here. Some fab beers on tap and not to mention a cracking G&T made with local Camden gin.





KERB opened in Camden yesterday and it is 100% worth a visit. It's right on the river so the perfect spot for beers, burgers and basking in the sun.

July foodie highlights

Leave a Comment
My very best bit of July was my evening at Dusty Knucke. I've already written about how fantastic is was here. But it really was a top night of delicious food and the best company. 

 

I've wanted to try The Dead Canary for ages and never got around to it, so what better way to wave off Cardiff than with a cheeky gin cocktail. This is probably the coolest bar in Cardiff with an impressive and very inventive cocktail menu and I feel like there will be something for everyone. 

 

Discovering a halloumi and peach salad at bills. I LOVE sweet and salty together and this was the best combination. 

 

My Park Plaza leaving do at Locke & Remedy. We ate pizza and drank prosecco and I couldn't have asked for a better send off with a fabulous bunch. 

 

Using borderfeilds oil on anything and everything. My personal fave? Crushed avo on toast with a smidge of chilli flakes, squeezed lemon and salt and pepper, topped with fried mushrooms and then a generous drizzle of lemon rapeseed oil. Absolutely delightful. 

 

 

Venturing to London and eating lots of delicious things - see here

 

Getting to make and eat mochi - What is mochi? I hear you cry! WELL, it's a ball of sweet, delicious ice cream wrapped in a squidgy ball of dough. The texture is like nothing you will have eaten before and it's scrumptious. My favourites were the coconut and mango ones. I even had a go at making them myself at a master class in Wholefoods flagship store. 

 

It was also my first time to Wholefoods and I died and went to heaven. They know how to put on a spread.
