The biggest request on my youtube channel is behind the scenes footage so at the start of 2015 I decided that I would record what I’m up to each week and share it with all of you! This had led to weekly vlogs which I upload to my channel every Tuesday! I love seeing the reaction they get each week and from what I can see in the comments, you seem to be enjoying them too! Now that I have done my first 5 vlogs, I thought I’d do a little recap of what has been happening! Continue reading »

Trambusti, based in the province of Florence, was founded in 1934 by Orlando Trambusti and is today run by his son Giovanni and grandchildren Giacomo, Veronica and Francesco. The estate’s 52 hectares (which include gorgeous olive groves) are at an average height of 350 meters above sea level, an altitude that is considered just about perfect for viticulture in Tuscany.

Two imperial stouts from the realm of New Zealand today.
Moa Imperial Stout has some classy presentation, though the black-on-black label is quite difficult to photograph. This is 10.2% ABV and, enticingly, is aged in Pinot Noir barrels. The flavour begins with quite orthodox coffee and sweet caramel – all very pleasant. But soon afterwards, the barrel drops into the middle of it all, adding a massive, jarring, sap-and-sawdust effect. Continue reading »

We recently returned to the Netherlands, and more specifically to Amsterdam, for a little weekend away. Even though it’s been 4 years since I left Amsterdam, I immediately feel at home and comfortable whenever I return. In a city where bicycles outnumber residents, it’s so tempting to fall into the Amsterdam cliches of the Red Light district, canals, coffee shops and bicycles. Continue reading »
Okay, so ignore the fancy presentation. These are best prepared in the small little takeaway tins you get Chinese food in. Most euro shops sell 5 – 10 of these for under €2 and they’re perfect for batch cooking & freezing meals.

It’s hard to believe that February is nearly over. We’ve had an incredibly mild winter here in Seattle, and daffodils, crocuses and even cherry blossoms are already in full bloom. I love the colors of spring as it’s a sweet reminder that summer is just around the corner. I also love the sweet selection of citrus fruits in season at the moment, and can’t resist adding citrus fruits to nearly every dish these days. Continue reading »
Café Hans is a little pink treasure of foodie delights. It is nestled on a quaint street in the outskirts of the pretty town of Cashel, just a stones throw from the impressive Rock of Cashel.
We have visited for lunch on three occasions and been very satisfied each time. Our last trip was on Valentine’s day. The café is opened from 12 to 5, takes no bookings and unsurprisingly gets very busy during rush hour lunch time. Continue reading »
