Ovation for Oliver Maki

Last week I visited probably one of the best restaurants I have ever been to and upon leaving the wonderful gentleman who provided all of the evening’s food and information about the food said ‘I hope you enjoyed the experience’, this sums up exactly how I wanted to remember this, such an incredible experience, beyond…

Nourishing Nosh Detox

Over the last 3 days, I have been doing the Nosh raw detox, which has been quite the experience. I am going to talk you through each day and how I have felt whilst doing this cleanse. This was so different to any cleanse I have done before purely because there are sachets involved, I will explain…

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…

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…

Top Class Turtle Bay

I hopped along to Turtle Bay for dinner on Saturday, after hearing so many people rave about it, I thought it only right I test it for myself, with their many vegan options and the prospect of cocktails and reggae music, I for one was very excited. Accompanied by my dear friend, we sat and…

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…

Magical Merles Kitchen

Ever since I was a little girl reading The Chronicles of Narnia, I have been obsessed with Turkish delights, when the Snow Queen offered them to Edward, there was such a magical feel to these delicious delights. My Nan would buy me a hexagonal box of them around Christmas time and I would sit and…
