  • Before I had experienced depression first hand I could never understand why people didn’t just “pull themselves together” and do something to cheer up. It’s embarrassing to admit now but the truth is, you rarely understand something until you’ve been through it yourself.

  • The ‘small plate’ phenomenon has been in full swing for a while now, with many restaurants offering this style of dining. Whether it is to encourage us to try a wider variety of dishes, spend more money or make us feel like giants, is up for debate. Curry Leaf is the latest to jump on the bandwagon with their third location, Kemptown Kitchen in, yes, you’ve guessed it… Kemptown.

  • The sun is shining on my face, I have a glass of fruity Pimm’s in my hand and the smells of foods from around the world are wafting in the air. I’m in HEAVEN. Well, actually I’m at the Brighton Foodies Festival on Hove Lawns but as a food blogger, this is my equivalent.

  • For a long time, Brighton had a pretty dire reputation for Italian restaurants, with many to choose from but few worth returning to. You’d also be hard pushed to find one that delivered anything close to what you’d experience in Italy. Luckily for us, a few goodies have popped up recently.

  • Italy is one of the few countries I’ve visited more than once. Four times in fact, with a trip to Tuscany last year most recently. The reason I return? Always for the food… Thankfully I can now get a little slice of Italy right in the heart of Brighton’s North Laine for those breaks between trips, at Cin Cin.

  • With Easter just around the corner, the Cadbury press office got in touch with me with a challenge… “make a recipe with our Creme Eggs”. They sent me a selection of recipes designed by family baker Rinkoff and what felt like a lifetime supply of Creme Eggs to play with. But me being me, (fiercely independent and far too ambitious for my own good), I decided to try my hand at designing my own recipe.
