St Albans and Harpenden Food & Drink Festival

Barely a 30 minute train ride away from London, St Albans City closed an entire street this Sunday Oct 3rd to welcome the annual St Albans and Harpenden Food & Drink Festival. Showcasing the best of food and drinks available throughout the District, St. Peter’s Street was transformed into a gourmand’s paradise under a delightful blue sky. I strolled […]

Padella Pasta

I was hanging around the reception area at Leiths School of Food and Wine when I picked up the latest Jamie Oliver magazine.

It’s like trying […]

FreeState Coffee

LUNCH Trade Show, London, UK

Meet the creatives dictating the look and flavours behind food and drinks you mindlessly purchase and consume on-the-go. London’s the innovative centre of all things take-away and food-to-go. At least that’s my conclusion after spending Sept 21-22 at LUNCH inside the Business Design Centre. As a start-up superfood company owner, I was in dire need […]

Homemade Coconut Milk

I love Starbucks for introducing the coconut milk option in their menus around the world because as the big evil milk alternative dictator, soy’s time in power was inching towards a well-deserved coup d’etat. Plus it makes people bloat like balloons. Lucky enough we have wheelbarrows of coconuts being pushed around in Haiti. So if you manage to spend […]

Vanilla Rooibos Tea Latte with Warm Spices

Homemade coconut milk is my all time favorite messy recipe. If you’re lucky enough to live in the tropics and have access to fresh brown coconuts, you will feel like Tarzan after smashing those babies open on hard surfaces. If that’s not enough to get you excited, the creamy dreamy texture and taste of homemade […]
