Vela pop up – Indian high tea

I love afternoon tea! The extravagance of a mid-afternoon meal of an abundance of savoury and sweet dishes is wonderful. I was therefore intrigued and excited by the idea of Vela pop-up, bringing an Indian high tea to Bristol (Hart’s Bakery to be exact): an afternoon of friends, tea, talk, but most importantly: food. Plates…

Root: Celebrating the mighty vegetable

We live in a time when change is constant. People change locations, diet plans, jobs. I have therefore stayed in my job for a relatively long time. The reason? The people! I am lucky to work with some incredibly talented, inspirational people including some pretty fabulous women. I have met a lot of my favourite…

Dela: teaching people how to share food

We all learnt in Friends that “Joey does not share food!” Despite this, I still get confused when I meet people who like to keep to their own dishes. You get to eat the same amount of food (well, if you are quick enough with me – I am a notoriously speedy eater) but try…

Sholay Indian Kitchen: Casual Indian dining

Cargo in Wapping Wharf is quickly becoming my go to area for food, particularly for an impromptu weeknight treat! One of the most recent additions to pop up in Cargo 2 is the intriguing Sholay Indian Kitchen. A new venture from owners of the award-winning The Mint Room, Sholay provides a modern, casual Indian dining…

Farmdrop: the ethical grocer

Busy lives have made us all about convenience and speed.Β Admittedly, I am as guilty as anyone in giving in to the convenience of an online supermarket shop. A quick scroll through my app and all my food and home needs are delivered as quick as the next day. There has however been a bit of…

Mac ‘n’ cheese: Urban Standard beating the mid-week blues!

I am catastrophically failing with all my healthy good intentions from my yoga retreat. 😦 But coming back to the grizzly grey and rainy days made me crave all the comfort food! And who would not be tempted by an evening that revolves around one of the ultimate comfort foods, mac ‘n’ cheese!! From now…

Burger Theory: the creative burger people

Burger Theory has long been one of my emergency hangover cures via Deliveroo. You just can’t beat the combo of meat, bread and sauce to get you through a bad time. Add a side of kimchi fries covered with more meat and you are on your way through the nausea to a more content food…

Yonder Collective: Make your Mark

This Summer I attended a beautiful event; not just because of its exciting venue of Floating Harbour Studios and gorgeous flowers from Flower & Land, but because of the lovely people. Yonder Collective is an exciting “space” created by Emma Chapman-Burnett and Rebecca Storey, who sought to build up a community of like-minded creative people…

Grillstock: All the meat, music & mayhem!

I’m currently reminiscing about the Summer. Remember those few days of glorious weather where Bristol came alive again with merry dancing people?!?! I miss it so!! One of the best bits about those few fabulous days was that it magically coincided with a weekend of drinking and eating at Grillstock festival. This was by far…

Weber & Tring’s: Negroni tasting

This post may be a little squiffy – the opportunity to try negronis (my favourite cocktail) in various formats made meΒ more than a little bit merry. Luckily I took some notes… although they are not the most thorough. Weber and Tring’s is a gorgeous shopΒ up the Christmas steps, where Sarah Weber and Richard Tring have…

Little Kitchen: Curry Club

I have loved baking since a child, but more general cooking has only become a passion in the last couple of years. My go to dinner used to be poached eggs on crumpets (which is still an epic evening food choice!) Now I try to be a little more adventurous. One thing I had not…
