    Japanese Convenience stores
    Japanese Convenience stores Just like most people, I am busy! Yes I’m always cooking, it’s my job but also my passion. However even I don’t always have the time! Wouldn’t it be nice if I could go into a shop, a shop of convenience you could say, and simply buy a fresh, wonderfully prepared and tasty meal or snack, hot or cold, at a reasonable price no matter the time of day. Unfortunately that’s not going to happen in the UK. In our convenience stores you are lucky to get a wilted sandwich. You

    Japanese Ekiben
    Japanese Ekiben I’m back from Japan and i’ll be honest with you, I didn’t want to come home. There were so many reasons I would prefer to remain in Japan, I could probably write a whole book on it. One of the major reasons was because of the food. I could go on and on about the food in Japan, so I’m going to break it down and this week I'm talking about Ekiben. I have always been in love with train travel. Luckily, here in the UK I get to travel on steam engines to indulge my romantic notions

    Japanese Street Food
    Japanese Street Food So I’m back from Japan and i’ll be honest with you, I didn’t want to come home. There were so many reasons I would prefer to remain in Japan, I could probably write a whole book on it. But one of the major reasons was because of the food. Yet again, I could go on and on about the food in Japan so I’m going to break it down, starting with street food.     Honestly, I am at my happiest when i’m grazing throughout the day. I love my nibbles, more than I do big meals. Street

    Results After 30 Days On The Hypocarnivore Diet
    Hypocarnivore Diet Results I’m have completed a year long experiment to find the right diet for me. And I did this by mimicking the diets of certain wild animals, because animals eat exactly what they need, to be at an optimised health level. I wanted to be at my optimum health and I believe a good diet will help that. But which animals diet would suit me? That could only be done through experiment. So every 30 days I switched to a different animal's diet. And this is called the ‘Eat Like An

    Top Ten Hypocarnivore Diet Dinner Ideas
    Top Ten Examples of Dinner on the Hypocarnivore Diet What is the Hypocarnivore Diet? It’s a diet that is replicating how a Black Bear eats. So in the main I’ll be eating 30 % meat and the rest of the diet is made of veg, grain and fungi. Also processed food is limited if not eliminated and refined sugars are kept to a minimum and that goes for booze too.   So why should someone go on the Hypocarnivore diet you ask?

  9. The Gin Festival 2018

    The Gin Festival 2018
    I have been lucky enough to attend the summer Gin Festival and now the winter one. Personally I prefer the summer one as it's bigger and has more to offer and is just more fun. Oh and if you go to either, despite them saying it's a cashless system, that only includes the gin. So if you want to eat, don't forget your cash if you want food and currently they don't have a cash machine in the Tobacco Docks so get it beforehand!!

It may surprise you to know, that despite not being a vegetarian, the thing that makes the perfect roast for me isn’t the meat. I’m not even going to discuss the meat in this series, or anything that isn’t a vegetable. Now i’m sure some of your are already screaming at me in outrage but hear me out. I’m not

You Will Need: 2 Chicken Breasts A Glug Of Olive Oil 1 Tsp Minced Garlic 1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar Juice of 1 Lemon 1 Tsp Mixed Italian Herbs ½ Tsp Smoked Salt ½ tsp Black Pepper ½ tsp

I come from a Neapolitan and English family, brought up in London, surrounded by immigrants working in the hospitality industry as my dad was a chef.

This meant I was fed an eclectic selection of meals from European to African to Asian. I absorbed it all and soon I traveled myself to learn even more beautiful dishes.

I use these recipes in my day to day life, on my friends and for events. So here is a peek into my life and the food that dominates it. And maybe one day I’ll be able to afford opening up my own little place so everyone can come eat my food.
