MAR d’FORA

This restaurant is a hidden gem. Tucked away on the cliff top in Praia de Paraiso, Carvoerio, it boasts a gorgeous set up with stunning views of the sea and surrounding area. If you decide to visit for dinner you can sit outside on the veranda and watch the warm blends of purple, orange and red…

Summer has arrived

And so the holiday season begins, my absolute favourite time of the year. Everyone’s so much happier, there’s such a feel good vibe in the air and the obligatory holiday snaps don’t go a miss. This week I’ve been sunning it up in a small town called Carvoerio, situated in the Algarve, Portugal with some friends.…

Easy Sunday Supper 

Although cooking that perfect Sunday roast is a great way to end the weekend, sometimes you just don’t have time. So what to cook instead? I was walking around the supermarket looking for inspiration when I came across a Jus-Roll puff pastry which reminded me of a childhood meal that my stepmum used to cook…

Lake Garda – Where to stay?

Recently I posted about my summer experience living in Italy, on Lake Garda. As you can imagine there is far too much to talk about to possibly even try and fit it into one post, so here is post number 2. Although I was working in Gardone, I got plenty of opportunity on my days off and…

Pizarro

So today I was invited to an impromptu celebratory lunch with work colleagues which was lovely, and lets face it, you’re not going to turn down a lunch! When I realised we were heading to Jose Pizarro’s restaurant in Bermondsey I was even more excited – I had never been before but it looked incredible…

A summer in Lake Garda

Nearly 5 years ago now I got the opportunity to work in Italy for a summer as a restaurant host in a hotel called Grand Hotel Gardone. Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love Italy as a country – the place, the people, the language, the food! So for me it was insane…

A night at The Olivier Awards

Incredible. Amazing. Overwhelming. Fun. Ridiculous. Surreal. I could use any one or all of these words to describe my experience of the Olivier Awards. Courtesy of MasterCard, me and my housemate Callum were lucky enough to attend the award ceremony at The Royal Opera House on Sunday 3 April. Words can’t describe how excited I…

A little country pub…

I’m definitely one for loving good old fashioned pub grub and over the years I have eaten in a fair few places (seeing as though I did grow up in the countryside where there is a pub on every corner). I would always choose a hearty meal over anything else on the menu: pie and…

@LndSearchParty

Today has been THE strangest Sunday ever, but a lot of fun too. My housemate Callum came across an event called The London Search Party a couple of weeks ago, sponsored by Borris Johnson, where you are given a starting venue and have to find the clues to the secret party. Sounds pretty interesting right?…

Wine Tasting Weekends 

So I think it’s fitting to begin this post by telling you I absolutely LOVE wine. But who doesn’t? I remember trying it as a child thinking there’s no way I would warm to it, but as my parents told me (and I’m sure every adult you spoke to did), “one day you will”. I’m much more…

Royal Leamington Spa Food & Drink Festival

A few months ago I decided to take a trip to Leamington with my step mum and sister to check out the Food & Drink festival, so what better way to begin my blog. For a free festival I have to say I was impressed! The turn out was excellent and there were so many exhibitors making…
