Persimmon And Fennel Tomato Salad

Filed in : TASTE

It doesn’t seem like summer is about to show up in London just yet, but as it always looks and feels like summer in my home, now is as good a time as any to create a few quick and easy salad recipes to enjoy as light snacks and starters over the season. First up is the persimmon and fennel […]

Raw Kale and Pistachio Pesto

Filed in : TASTE

I love pesto, I always have. However recently I’ve found that I no longer enjoy the pesto I buy from the supermarket. I’m not entirely sure, but this could be partly because I’ve become a little bored of how ‘samey’ the store bought pesto tastes nowadays. About a year ago, I bought a jar of small […]

PINK GRAPEFRUIT AND BUTTERSCOTCH CHAMPAGNE SORBET

Filed in : TASTE

It’s hard to believe that summer is already coming to an end, as it seemed to have side-stepped the UK this year. Oh well, given the reputation of ‘Great British Summer’, I kinda knew that my trip to Antigua & Barbuda for Sailing Week earlier this year was going to be my only decent dose of sunshine before […]

HOW TO MAKE CHILI-INFUSED OLIVE OIL

Filed in : DIY & CRAFTS, TASTE

I love infused oils for three main reasons. They’re delicious, they’re versatile, and they often look very beautiful when presented in nicely shaped glass bottles. Many of you know that I love spicy foods, so it may not come as a surprise that chili-infused olive oil is one of my favourites of all infused oils. Having […]

Smoked Salmon Rocket Rolls With A Side of Friendship and a Glass of Wine

Filed in : TASTE

One of the things I truly miss about Caribbean lifestyle is the ease and spontaneity with which friends just drop in to ‘see how you’re doing’ or just ‘say hi’, then they end up staying for a lingering lunch, dinner or just a bite and a few easy drinks… We were never too keen on this ‘pencil […]

Filed in : 18 Chelsea Mews Loves, TASTE

18 Chelsea Mews loves… M & S FOOD: ADVENTURES IN IMAGINATION Anyone who knows me, will tell you that I’m a big fan of M&S Food. It’s probably pretty accurate to say that I’m obsessed with their little pots of antipasti, humous, finger foods, fruits, vegetables, seafood, healthy snacks and sweet treats. So when I stumbled […]

Pan-Seared Scallops & Butterfly Prawns + Salsa Verde

Filed in : TASTE

I love Mediterranean cuisine; seafood & vegetarian Italian dishes and Spanish Tapas are my absolute favourites. They’re so delectable, require healthy fresh ingredients and are generally pretty easy to prepare. What’s not to like? My dear friend Sarah came by a few weeks ago and we had an amazing girls’ night in with a pitcher […]

EAT | Nectarine Caprese Summer Salad

Filed in : TASTE

Hello lovelies! It feels like ages since I brought you something from the kitchen, so today I am sharing the recipe (of sorts) for one of my favourite summer salads – The Nectarine Caprese Summer Salad. I shouldn’t really call it a recipe as I’ll admit I’m no good at suggesting measurements/quantities of ingredients to make […]

Sipping Pretty: 6 Beauty-Boosting Infused Water Recipes To Make At Home

Filed in : Lifestyle, TASTE

Are you struggling with drinking the recommended 8 glasses of water per day? Well, you’re probably not alone. Although water plays such an important role in keeping our bodies healthy, many people find the taste of plain water so bland and uninteresting, that it becomes an arduous chore to ‘drink up’. So here’s the plan, why […]

EAT | Mediterranean Style Sea Bream Fillet

Filed in : TASTE

Tasty pan-fried sea bream fillet… It’s what I had for dinner! As the Ocado guy delivered my grocery shopping last weekend, I became very excited about the Saucy Fish Company’s sea bream fillet. I’m a pescetarian, hence fish is very much a part of my daily diet, so I’m still not sure why the sudden […]
