    A Bowl of Comfort & a Pep in Your Salad Step….

    I signed off my last newsletter with the news that I would be writing to you today from the shores of Southern California. But sometimes our best laid plans get a last minute overhaul and I had to postpone……..Alas, I am not looking out over the Pacific this morning, but I’ll be there soon enough…

    Ready, Steady, Snack and my Ode to Rhubarb (plus 2 new classes)

    I am deep in January snacking mode over here. An early adopter of the work from home gang, I was in the distinct minority amongst my peers until recent years. Running my Interior Design Consultancy from my kitchen for almost two decades gave me (self proclaimed) snack expert status. I learned very early on that…

Things I Love Right Now


notes from my journal…

Things I Love Right Now

I had a whirlwind trip to NYC at the end of last month but I did manage to squeeze in a seat at 2 of my favourite eateries. The bar at Frenchette is my happy place, where I can eat phenomenal steak tartare while sipping an exceptional dry martini and watch the local Tribeca world go by. And I shamelessly ordered enough food for 4 at Via Carota, a restaurant that never disappoints. The wait is always worth it.

I adored reading Lessons In Chemistry last year and have just binge watched the series on AppleTV. It has the perfect soothing pace to keep us company during the winter and it’s an absolute visual dream from the fabulous wardrobes to the mouth watering food shots. Not to mention a great story…….

Happily spending this month baking my way through my heroine, Nancy Silverton’s new book, The Cookie That Changed My Life. Keep your eyes peeled on Instagram for updates on what I’m making.

See everything I love
