Beef & Brew- Kentish Town – A review

An absurdly short walk from Kentish Town Station Beef & Brew was our restaurant of choice for a meal before a gig at The Kentish Town Forum. A quick look on the internet showed promising reviews and the carnivore in me couldn’t resist the lure of a hearty steak before a night out. As a small restaurant, there was limited…

The Gin Tub, Brighton – A Review

As my tipple of choice, I’m all for the recent revival of gin and love seeing it take pride of place on cocktail menus and supermarket shelves. Last week whilst down in Brighton I stumbled across The Gin Tub, an eclectic looking bar on Church Road. With it being past midday, and having just made a decision on my new…

Purezza – Plant Based Pizza in Brighton – A Review

I’ll start this review by simply saying Purezza is a haven for vegans, those trying to eat more plant-based or follow a gluten-free diet or dairy-free diet.

Yuzu and Honey Hot Cross Buns – A Recipe

Chemicals, artificial sweeteners and additives are added to so many ‘health’ foods to bring down their calory count and price…

Easy gluten-free Yakisoba with Yutaka

Asian cuisine is notoriously difficult if you’re trying to live a gluten-free lifestyle, with many recipes containing soya-sauce as a base ingredient. As a result, I quite often have to cook my favourite dishes from scratch and forgo the Friday night takeaway. When Yutaka contacted me and asked if I would like to try their new range of gluten-free, organic noodles…

Veg packed pasta – Eating the rainbow – Gluten free & Vegan

  Counting calories has never worked for me so instead this January I decided to count colours. No not skittles, plants. The colour of plants holds a delicious secret, phytonutrients. These phytonutrients have a host of health benefits and are often what is responsible for giving plants their pigment. Therefore, to ensure you’re getting a variety of as many of…
