At a time where everyone in the developed world seems to be leaning ever more towards a plant based diet, I’m not afraid to admit that I love a good steak. That wasn’t always the case – I never used to like it when I was younger – and despite loving steak, I don’t think my parents have ever been to a steak restaurant (so obviously I never went as a kid!), under the impression that they’re just so overpriced and simply not worth the money.
So this year National Pizza Day falls on the 9th February and obviously I can’t wait – a two day celebration dedicated to one of my favourite foods! There’s a preview party with Street Feast on Thursday evening before the main event on Friday 9th, where a ton of London’s best independent pizza places including Pizza Pilgrims, Voodoo Rays and Radio Alice will be appearing alongside nationwide chains. There are some incredible sounding collaborations, there’s going to be a gelato pizza cake (have you ever heard of a more wonderful sounding thing!?) and Mamma Dough are serving up an incredible three course pizza dinner especially for the occasion.
First Christmas as a married woman down, and I can’t believe it’s already been over 6 months since we got back from our honeymoon! Apologies for another very belated blog post, but one I’ve been meaning to finish this post for months – it was the only ‘fancy’ meal we had in NYC so I can’t compare it to other well known restaurants but we loved it and it’s most definitely somewhere I’d recommend!

Carbs. My one true food love. Who doesn’t love freshly baked bread, steaming hot from the oven, pillow soft inside and slathered with butter? I’m sorry if you don’t then we just can’t be friends. Little did I know when I turned up to the Cacoco restaurant launch event that I would be surrounded by mountains of soft bread rolls – absolute food heaven.
“In Italy, food is king.”
It is in our household too.. I knew there was a reason Italian was my favourite cuisine 😉 Wolf is a neighbourhood restaurant in Stoke Newington that celebrates authentic Italian food – and the Italian way of eating. Using the finest local and speciality Italian ingredients, they create seasonal, regional dishes that hail from all corners of the country. As well as good food, they offer an all-Italian wine list, cocktails made with home-infused spirits and freshly ground Italian coffee.
