The Nags head Pub and Restaurant in Brentwood is one of many great pubs in Essex. The Nags Head is a perfect venue for all seasons, and offers signature dishes such as spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit, slow cooked pork belly with seared scallops, salmon supreme served with thyme-roasted butternut squash, and a home-made British beef burger. For lighter bites, let the food transport you to the Mediterranean with a mezze platter! There are also a range of daily specials and a wonderful drinks list, so you will be sure to find something that tickles your fancy!View Post
I have been wanting to make some chocolate and cream choux puffs for a while now but was a little apprehensive about how they would turn out as I have never made them before. I kept the ingredients really simple for this recipe, and would highly recommend using the Just Free self raising flour from Lidl. I have been using this for many of my cakes and sweet treats for a while now and I have to say it is one of my favourite flours to use. The Just Free range is good, and I use the plain flour too.
I love finding gluten free gems around London, and last weekend was a chance to explore the gluten free gems of Shoreditch! I spend nearly all of my weekends in London, and love discovering new places to eat out.

Cote Brasserie has locations all around the UK, and a few weeks ago, myself and some gluten free buddies enjoyed a lunch at St Katherine’s dock, near Tower Hill, London. I have been a number of times to the Cote Brasserie in Wimbledon, but didn’t realise then that they offered a gluten free menu.
We have all been there. That voice inside our head that screams ”it’s contaminated!” when your not so helpful friend accidentally puts your bread in the toaster without the toastie bags! Or your boyfriend uses the same knife to dunk into your favourite jam, and then spreads it on his (gasp) non gluten free bread. So many gluten lurking opportunities, it’s an absolute nightmare trying to keep on top of the cross contamination!
Greek Pitta breads are not only easy peasy to make, but they can be a great on the go snack, or for lunch or dinner! They are filling too, and you can have lots of fun creating new and exciting fillings! I used the Genius pitta bread with chicken, peppers, greek yoghurt, fried halloumi and salad!
Greek walnut cake or Καρυδόπιτa is a Greek dessert made mainly from walnuts and covered in a sweet syrup. Its name comes from the Greek name “karýdia” (walnuts) and “pita” (pie). There are several variations of the dish, with unique ingredients used in both the syrup and cake.
