Lupe Pintos chile and spice shop is brilliant 24 Leven Street for all things Mexican. Took their free recipe leaflet for chilli con carne, made with the most fantastic tinned chipolte chilies in adobo sauce
@scottishnationalportrait no, not a portrait of a broom, but brooms were being put to work at 4.20 pm so customers in the portrait gallery cafe were made to feel v. unwelcome even though cafe does not close till 5 pm. A shame as great space and great food; there is no need for a broom underfoot with your Gunpowder Green #edinburghfoodie#cafe
Wonderful food market outside Kings Cross station on Wednesday to Friday. Great to stock up on healthy Moroccan salads to less healthy oat bars and coffee and fountains from @caravan @kingscross #londonfoodies
Sun is shining lots to smile about @winchester christmas market @the original Edinburgh mead stall, come and join us for a hot mead, cider, cranberry buttered punch or mulled red, even more reasons to smile
Pride before a fall: my fantastic if I say so myself; lemon curd cake with meringue then we had a demo of chocolate eclairs, easy I thought after my earlier triumph, but not so: chocolate and Chantilly cream all over the shop
On Sunday afternoon we practiced in our cottages, boning a chicken, then cooking it with rosemary and tarragon and eating al fresco with fellow students. The next few days I thought I might just check on that almost too subtle tarragon flavour; toad flax chicken may never make it beyond Shenagarry but you can see how much the two plants look alike! Obv not poisonous as we are all still cooking and eating!
First the foraging for horseradish.. so a good clue as to what or was going to be cooked: roast rib of beef, delicious, just a shame the gorgeous red wine from the wine tasting came along six hours too late..
