For years I’ve been saying that a lot of people just don’t know how (or can’t be bothered) to cook anymore and it’s bloody terrifying. I did a food technology GCSE and instead of learning basic skills like different ways to make eggs or how to cook different meats, (you know all the important life skills), we spent hours learning about how a microwave works. Yeah thanks education, that really came in handy.
I’m back with my first recipe review post of 2017 and I have to say, it’s a blimmin’ delish fish dish. (I’m not even sorry … Well okay, maybe a little bit. I feel ever so slightly ashamed)
I do love a nice fish pie, especially on a cold winter’s evening, and with a nice bit of garlic bread on the side! I like to make this on a Saturday evening so we can have leftovers on Sunday and I don’t have to cook again #resourceful #lazy
Rather than doing a December favourites, I thought I’d do a general round-up of my year and share some of the lovely things that happened to me in 2016 (most of them blog-related!) 🙂
I love a good bit of mail. Especially when it’s cute mail as opposed to the usual bills and junk mail. Although I do love those Papa Johns flyers that come through the door! Because Papa Johns is the one!
Anyway, Sophie from I Just Love It got in touch a while ago to let me know about their Christmas campaign #IJLIGiftofGiving and that they wanted to work with bloggers to do a gift swap. Not only that but my gorgeous, lovely BBFF Jemma was going to be swapping with me.
Cin Cin* (pronounced chin chin), a new Brighton restaurant, is an absolute gem nestled in the heart of North Laine. (13-16 Vine Street to be more precise!)
Starting out four years ago as a mobile food van, Cin Cin was the vision of David, who wanted to bring an authentic Italian taste to Brighton. He then brought Fabrizio and Jamie on board to open up the Cin Cin restaruant and boy, did they deliver!
I absolutely love chicken Katsu and curry. It’s what I always get when I pop into Kokoro in Brighton. It’s also incredibly easy to make at home if you happen to find an amazing recipe. Which I have 😀
Smashburger is the latest in a long line of American fast food restaurants coming to the UK and setting up home. And, having just opened their latest branch in Brighton, the Yelpers were invited to check it out to see if it measures up to what’s already on offer.
Where the hell did September go? I’m sure a couple of weeks ago it was still light out about 8:30, now it’s pitch black. Autumn is definitely here now.
I always thought kedgeree was difficult to make. Of course, when I was younger, I didn’t actually know what it was. I just knew that it tasted good. When I found out it was just fish and rice, with some fragrant spices thrown in, I figured I’d give it a whirl.
Wafflemeister is Brighton’s newest (and family-run franchise) delight; selling sweet and savoury waffles and crepes along with a healthy dose of gelato. Situated at the top of West Street, it’s perfect for tourists heading down to the beach or locals wanting to refresh after a hard morning’s shopping.
I went down to the opening to check it out with some other bloggers and press and damn they put on a good spread!
