Who knew mango could inspire so many dishes. And such creative vegetarian ones to be exact. On Saturday evening, Lucy and I broke our supperclub virginity and attended the 8 plates popup event – an ode to the Mango. The 8 plates vegetarian popup was founded by Roshni, who wanted to put her love for food (inspired by her mum) and creativity with new dishes, along with a passion for hosting to good use. Taking place in Roshni’s living room, each supper club has no more than eight spaces (hence the name), making it a seriously exclusive yet friendly event. The early birds last weekend, we arrived armed with a small bottle of gin, to fulfill the BYOB part of the evening. After a really…

What I eat when dining out often inspires a lot of my home cooking. The new ingredients I decide to experiment with, the flavour combos, the style. I recently had a delicious cauliflower salad, and so have started roasting my own spiced cauliflower at home to add to salads, main dishes, or a delicious vegetable cous cous, which I’ve been having for lunch at work – don’t worry, the recipe is on it’s way. Roasted cauliflower, is so simple, yet get the flavour combinations right, and a spiced version can beĀ 100x better! So much flavour packed into something so nutritious. So here it is, my Roasted Spiced Cauliflower recipe for you to try. I hope you enjoy, and of course, please let me know how…

City breaks. As much as they’re about culture for me, they’re also about food. Getting to try the traditional cuisines from exactly where it all started and from the people who know how to prepare it and serve it best, is always top of my list of things to do – it’s all about the things to eat! I bet you’re not shocked there. Madrid was no exception, and with Kim on the same page as me, both being serious foodies, we had plenty of options on our list to try during our trip. In fact, we had way too many to fit into our short break. We quickly found that food in Madrid is all about the carbs, fried food and cheese, and although…

Pad thai. Katsu curry. Chilli chicken ramen. Go to an Asian restaurant and those are pretty much the three dishes I always go for. Ok, so I haven’t previously chosen Asian restaurants that often, or I’d definitely have tried something new everytime. The issue is, Alex is not a veggie man, so we look for a menu without too many options with veggies tied in – picking them out in public is not the coolest thing for a 25 year old to do. But when I’m with the girls, well that’s different. And after my recent Asian cuisine experience I certainly need to start getting my restaurant priorities right. Asia de Cuba is a restaurant which brings together Latin and Asian ingredients, techniques and flavours.…

Scrambles are simple and quick, yet super tasty if you get the right flavour combinations. They make a quick brilliant brunch, for those weekends when you need a speedy option before heading out for the day, or even a delicious light dinner for those evenings when you’re limited on time. What’s more, scrambles are a great source of protein for post-gym meals too. With asparagus still in season, I’m making the most of this versatile vegetable – it’s one of my favourites! Combined with ham in a scramble, served on toasted seeded bread and topped with sliced avocado, it’s been a winning brunch dish recently! Have you got a favourite scramble recipe?
