Quick Berry Compote Recipe

Raspberries and blackberries are usually rather pricey, so when I see special offers on them, I grab. But often, they start showing signs of spoilage fairly quickly, and I end up having to throw them out (because I’m not really a fruit person so I don’t end up eating them fast enough). But then I […]

Molten Chocolate Cake

Molten Chocolate Cake recipe

Ah..molten chocolate cake. Or chocolate lava cake as it is fondly known as. Remember that scene in the move, Chef, where Jon Favreau screams his head off at a food critic, saying “chocolate lava cake isn’t just undercooked chocolate cake…you take a frozen cylinder of ganache and set it in a ramekin so that as […]

My Capella Staycation

Blue Lagoon Reykjavik

Sorry, but that really depends. As timings would have it, we arrived rather late into Reykjavik on a cold October day and by the time we reached the Blue Lagoon at 5pm, not only was it dark, but it was also raining. Tip: The guides say you should […]

Happy New Year 2016!

Happy New Year! I wanted to start the new year with my two favourite obsessions – travel and food. So the morning was spent making plans for a beach vacay to Phuket in March, heading off to Aleenta, can’t wait for powder-white sands and blue waters and vegging out for 5 days..nice! And then it […]
