Foodies do the West Coast of Canada

Autumn is my favourite time of the year. I’ve written countless blog posts about it and save my sweater collection all year round, ready for the Autumn months. This year, I started my Autumn off by spending it in the Canadian Rockies. I’ve really wanted to go there for sometime. After a nine hour flight,… Continue reading Foodies do the West Coast of Canada

Eating My Way Through London: Casse- Croute

After my flirtations with Greece and Persia, it seems like I’m turning back to French cuisine. Visiting Casse- Croute makes you feel like you’re dining in a French village. It may not be the cheapest, but it’s not ridiculously overpriced either. Casse- Croute, simply put, is fab. Situated in the thriving area of Bermondsey, it… Continue reading Eating My Way Through London: Casse- Croute

Apparently Bellanger is ‘inspired by the Alsatian brasseries of Paris’. If you’re not down with Alsatian dining, then expect to be a little more… Continue reading Eating My Way Through London: Bellanger

My food travels in the Netherlands: Haarlem, The Hague and Amsterdam

Haarlem is a cute historical city, with an old market square that boasts several museums and an impressive church named (imaginatively) Grote Kirk. The city’s proximity to the sea, and Noord-Holland‘s fertile farmlands, means that food in Haarlem is wonderfully fresh and delicious. After spending the day visiting the flower gardens in Keukenhof (one of… Continue reading My food travels in the Netherlands: Haarlem, The Hague and Amsterdam
