Lamb Kleftiko

I think I’m turning into a feeder.  You know, one of those people who cooks way too much for dinner and really really wants people to have seconds, thirds and then pudding? Yeah…that’s me now.  Three people I had to feed on Sunday, however I managed to cook enough for a small army.   Lamb…

Warming Sweetcorn Soup

Ooooooooh it’s still a bit parky, isn’t it? In my ongoing quest to find soups that remind me of Summer (COME BACK, MILD DECEMBER, ALL IS FORGIVEN), I found this recipe and it’s a cracker. It’s a little spicy so it warms you up from the inside and it’s chunky so it feels more substantial…

Kami, NW5

A few weeks ago, I got tickets with some girlfriends to see the amazingly talented Luisa Omielan perform her stand up show ‘What Would Beyoncé Do?’ at Kentish Town Forum. We giggled, we LOLed and we LMFAOed FIT TO ACTUAL BURST and her hilarious – and sometimes heartbreaking – show about life, love, mental health,…

Pho & Bun and Cirque Berserk!

Last week, we had a SISTER DATE! Sister Dates are the best kind of dates I reckon, and since I hadn’t seen my darling older sis for a few weeks we were well due a catch up, a good feed and some first class entertainment. We started off with drinks at Tredwell’s and after a…

Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup

It’s been a while since we last blogged, I know, and I’m SORRY dear Readers. It’s been a frantic few weeks and we’ve both been subsisting on a diet of M&S sandwiches, caffeine and anxiety. No good for blogging AT ALL unless you’re interested in a ‘Pret coffee v Starbucks coffee’ or ‘My fave M&S…

Dinerama, EC2A.

STREET FEAST IS BACK!!!!! If you’re as excited about this as I am then clear your Saturday night, grab your food-lovin’ mates and get your fine ass’ to Shoreditch and check out Dinerama. Last year, we blogged about Hawker House which, although was fantastic, felt quite cramped being all indoors.  Dinerama is different.  There’s one…

Condesa, WC2

“Do you know what here’s not enough of on this blog?” I thought to myself the other day. Tapas, of course – I hardly ever have tapas! HAHAHAHAHAHA JOKES. I eat so much tapas I am basically turning into a plate of tapas. What a way to go… *nibble* swoon* Anyway, let’s talk tapas (again)….

Beef & Brew, NW5.

Yesterday, for various reasons, was pretty shit for both of us.  We’re talking seriously crap days at the office.  We didn’t need this as an excuse to drink two bottles of wine (and then some) and eat our body weight in beefy goodness but it certainly made it feel justified. After a few bottles of…

Warming Spiced Porridge

London and I need to have words.  Last week was bracingly cold to the point where I actually wore leggings under my trousers for most of the week.  When I saw all the snow that our friends are getting across the pond I was severely jealous but also excited to maybe JUST MAYBE get our own mini-blizzard…

Polpo @ Ape & Bird, WC2

Last weekend, Mummy Swan came for one of her regular visits to the big smoke. We went for brunch at the Kensington Creperie, visited (and shed a little tear at #notevenembarrassed) the heartbreakingly excellent Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition at the NHM and then went to see Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty at Sadler’s Wells…

Three Ways With Quinoa

Recently I’ve started using a lot of quinoa. Believe it or not I had a bag left over from our Crispy Salmon Fajitas that we made AGES AGO and I rediscovered it in the big box of ‘non-perishable food’ that we left behind before we went off travelling. Turns out that, even though it’s a…

Vintage Salt, N1

I love fish & chips, but getting a decent fish & chip supper in London can be an utter bitch, can’t it?  Gastropub fish & chips are… hit and miss (at best), and seafood restaurants either posh them up and never get them *quite* right, or it feels like a bit of a weird thing…
