REVIEW: Il Gusto Oils & Vinegars

We were delighted when we received the rather swanky wooden box containing the new range of oils and vinegars from Il Gusto. All the products are sourced carefully from quality producers and the range contains a delightful selection of infused olive oil and balsamic vinegar. With summer in full...

BOOK REVIEW – FOOD AND FIRE by Marcus Bawdon

I’m a cookbook junkie, we have over 500 between us. Some we’ve inherited from our mothers and grandmothers, others gifts, recommendations or on a whim for a specific recipe. However, it’s always quite different reading a book when you know the author, when we can hear them speaking, feel...

BOOK REVIEW – The Kitchen Science Cookbook, Dr. Michelle Dickinson

As a child, I very quickly came to the conclusion that I was not cut out for anything vaguely scientific. Experiments, instead of being a bit of light-hearted fun, invariably turned into something incendiary, but never intentionally. So it was with great excitement that we agreed to review this...

Light My Fire – Cooking With Certainly Wood

We were delighted when Certainly Wood contacted us, challenging us to get cooking with wood. We couldn’t resist and waited with excitement until the package arrived.

The French Kitchen

We’re great enthusiasts of classic French brasserie cuisine; the perfect blend of hearty food and convivial company in a relaxed setting. In fact, we love it so much that we run our own boutique brasserie, La Petite Bouchée. However, since we’re based in the UK, we can’t reach everybody...

A Chic Chocolate Extravaganza

  A-C came into the office the other day with a face of deep disappointment. My spirits rose. Trust me, I know this sounds insane, but this particular expression is oftentimes accompanied by words along the lines of “I’m really sorry darling but…” and then what follows is something...

Happy Eggstra Thick Easter With Hotel Chocolat

There is nothing like an extra thick Easter egg! You know the kind that gives a satisfyingly biscuit-like ‘SNAP’ as you crack it open rather than the soft ‘fft’ of an inferior version? Hotel Chocolat make the most gorgeous eggs with a thick chocolate shell from the aptly named...
