Three foods I can't get enough of

Today's theme for Blog Every Day In May is Food Glorious Food. This is probably the hardest thing for me to write about because I love all kinds of food, cooking, eating at home, eating out, food blogs, cookery shows and culinary writing. It's hard for me to know where to start so I'm going to share three things I've loved eating in the past 12 months.


I'm not really a fan of burgers so the fact that this London restaurant is now one of my favourites is really saying something. They have a few locations across town and there's almost always a queue but it's worth the wait. Their burgers are about £7-8 and a bowl of fries is big enough to share. Have the deep fried pickles with blue cheese dressing and don't plan on doing much afterwards except rolling home. They also have a horribly named cocktail called The Time of the Month which (if memory serves me correctly) is gin, red wine and strawberry juice. GET THIS DRINK, it is lush!


My guy found this recipe for individual cupcake style brownies and, honestly, I'm not sure I could ever go back to a tray bake. The addition of a ganache, drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkling of maldon sea salt flakes makes this one of the best things I've ever put in my mouth. Make them for friends and serve warm with cornish icecream (but be sure to keep a few back for yourself after your guests have left). 

Mussels

As a kid I hated mussels and only started to really like them a few years ago. Last summer my guy and I went to the Mussel Inn while we were at the Edinburgh Fringe and shared a kilo with fresh bread and fries. Now we make them at home every couple of months and it's always a treat but really inexpensive, a kilo is about a fiver from a local fishmonger. We often do half moules marinière and half Thai Style served with fresh crusty bread and a bottle of white wine. Feels really fancy, actually very easy - those are the best kinds of meals!

  1. Mussels are one of my favourite foods - but like you, it's only been a recent thing. Moules frites make me a very happy woman indeed.
