A Mathematical Cakethrough

I'm training for a 10k run with a team from my work for which I was shamelessly lured in by the promise of free running shoes tailored to my specific needs as identified following a free consultation that would analyse my gait and stride in the performance centre. I liked the sound of it - it sounded… Continue reading A Mathematical Cakethrough

No Pesto Thai Beef Salad

I've got this friend called Debs who keeps saying to me: "I tried that dish on your blog the other night but hmmmmm......well....... I didn't really like it". This always leads to me suspiciously interrogating how she went about said dish and so far has always revealed that what Debs has actually made is actually… Continue reading No Pesto Thai Beef Salad

So yesterday whilst at some friends' house I had a Goan Salmon Curry from their North London take-away favourite The Tiffin Tin. As  a new menu item described as the 'chef's speciality' it was highly recommended by the kitchen and true to its claim, it was damn tasty and so is now recommended by Bernie's… Continue reading Curry Weekender

Pastry & Everything is Good

Yes indeed, pastry and pretty much everything is good with me. Meat and pastry is the king  (I'm known for scoffing M&S sausage rolls on the train ride home - if 2 of 6 make it to my fridge they are very lucky indeed), but generally you can't go wrong with anything and pastry -… Continue reading Pastry & Everything is Good
