Sorry I’ve been pretty quiet on here recently.. a combination of being busy at work, enjoying family time over Christmas and generally feeling very little motivation to write (or, admittedly, do many other things.. besides eat!) has meant I haven’t posted in a while, but safe to say I certainly haven’t been slacking on the food front, so I wanted to share some of my favourites with you from this year so far.
I’d been wanting to go to Berners Tavern for the longest time, but with it being more on the fancy side I was waiting for a special occasion to go there, and those of you that know me will know that this year has hardly been a cause for celebration; quite the opposite in fact. When I heard they were discontinuing their weekend brunch menu I was cursing myself for not booking in earlier, but replacing it with weekend roast and afternoon tea is hardly an unwelcome substitute – they’re probably my two next favourite things, and with so many Antipodean cafes and independent coffee shops serving incredibly unique and exciting weekend brunch menus, I almost think that British restaurants shine more when they serve up true classics like a good roast dinner. With a focus on the highest quality produce and perfectly cooked meats, a weekend roast couldn’t be a more perfect fit for Berners Tavern, and is there anything more quintessentially British than a good afternoon tea!?
WHAT a month of food! I feel like I’m spoilt for good food every month, but some of the places I went to this month were some of the best I’ve tried all year! It was pretty hard to narrow it down, but these were some of my favourites! Continue reading September highlights
You know those meals that you can’t help but want to rave about to anyone who will listen!? Last week I visited La Mia Mamma and despite having very little free time to write these days, I felt compelled to share it on my blog – it was honestly one of the best meals I’ve had this year.
August was a seriously good month.. we were absolutely spoilt for good weather and a lot of good food went down! Now that the Summer seems to have vanished overnight I’m hoping the warm weather comes back for September, but in the meantime here are some of my favourites from last month.. enjoy!
Although I love writing, I’m finding less and less time to do it these days, and I often find that I have neither the time nor the inclination to write up a long post about one place, unless it’s truly special! There have been so many times that I’ve come across a lovely cafe or coffee shop that I simply don’t have enough content to write a whole blog post on, or I might even have just eaten one incredible thing that I felt I had to share.. so I’m going to try and make the effort to write up posts with little snippets of smaller things I wanted to share 🙂 So onto some of July’s highlights..
