First Class Four to Eight

Just off of Aldwych lies Four to Eight, named on the premise that Italian food has four to eight ingredients only, in each dish. This I discovered when speaking with the wonderful owner. On arrival this stunning restaurant looked inviting, we were greeted immediately and served some much required ice cold water! When we first…

Winsome Windmill

Yesterday, as the sun shone brightly, I took full advantage at a gorgeous pub that sits right on the edge of Clapham Common – The Windmill. Not only is the decor and design of this establishment something special, the food was superb and the service fantastic. We were informed that this is also a hotel…

Comforting Carbonara

Carbonara, was one of my favourite things as a child, it was so creamy and filling. Obviously, as an adult I wanted to eat the same food but without the cruelty involved in making it, so I decided to make a vegan carbonara. I have made 2 versions to show you guys one with mushrooms…

Naughty But Nice Slices

Naughty But Nice Slices are for all of  you out there, who like me, are wanting something for an insatiable sweet tooth. They can be adapted to make them slightly healthier but for me, I ease my conscious by making sure there is fruit in them. They are completely customisable and can be made with…

Sumptious Summer Wines

Summer is a time for friends and wine. Wine is something that is so simple to suggest in a social situation but can make all the difference to a Summer’s day, which is why I have been working my way through some luscious wines so that I may share them with you. I tried Pasquiers…

Tantalising Tyne Cheases

I love cheese. Vegan cheese of course but have struggled at times to find the range of cheeses that non-vegans have on offer. Recently I have been eating my way through some delicious ‘chease’ by Tyne Cheases and these guys are in a league of their own when it comes to making delicious flavour sensations….

Elegant Elvira’s Secret Pantry

I struggled to start this review because quite honestly I didn’t know how to, very rarely am I speechless, but the arrival of delights from Elvira’s Secret Pantry left me just that. I received a plethora of sweet and savoury items, that were all incredible, not just in taste, but the attention to detail of…

Intriguing Ippudo

I had an extremely interesting meal at Japanese restaurant Ippudo last week. Situated in St Giles Plaza, just a stone’s throw away from Tottenham Court Road and Covent Garden, this gem is one that should not be missed. I started with edamame which had been sauteed with garlic and chilli and Goma Q – a cucumber that…

Boldly BOL

When it comes to being peckish, let’s be honest, sometimes you want to eat there and then, no fussing around with chopping and prepping, no waiting for this to boil and that to cook, but the one thing I can’t stand more than all of this is bland food. We have all been there, popped…

Miraculous Mother Mash

I popped down to Mother Mash just off on Carnaby Street earlier today for what turned out to be an incredible lunch. The restaurant is themed around a traditional pie and mash shop, similar to the ones I remembered going to with my Grandparents as a child, with green and white tiling and benched booth…

Raw Cacao Coconut Mousse

I have always had a love for chocolate mousse, it is one of the best desserts and for me, it was one that I would be very happy to see on the menu until of course, I became vegan. Recently I have been trying to create some recipes with the raw cacao powder I have…

Saucy Summer

Summer is here and with so many vegan options for dinner, I think it is only right to have a sauce to meet every requirement, so I have been on the hunt for some delicious sauces, to add a little extra to the barbeque or any meal really that you want to enjoy to the…
