The Great Christmas Sandwich Debate!!

As you may have noticed from Christmases past, I absolutely LOVE Christmas food. Turkey is the best of all the meats, but when you mix with with stuffing and exciting bits then it is epic! These items also work very well in sandwiches so I made it my mission when I was back in England…

Haskins Garden Centre

One way you can shift me off the couch the day after an overnight flight with maybe a total of an hours sleep, is to bribe me with breakfast. A cooked breakfast. A proper cooked breakfast with bacon. And sausage. And egg.

The Bailiwick

After a wonderfully frustrating morning looking around the incredible Windsor Castle, and ahead of a long train journey home due to the stupid strikes, we stopped at The Baliwick for a little lunch.

Ascot Christmas Market

We had planned on heading into London to go to Winter Wonderland, but with the recent terror incident in London, and some free tickets to a local Christmas Market, we decided to stay closer to home. I was a little disappointed but mostly elated that I wouldn’t have to go on the train again so…

RIP, Gary

Many moons ago, when I was still new to Dubai, I worked with a charity. Whatever It Takes was the brainchild of Charlotte di Vita, MBE. She worked out that by getting celebrities to do a quick drawing, you could licence it out to get put onto a multitude of items and make a lot…

Cipriani, DIFC

Not to be mixed up with Cipollini (who is a bike riding superstar, and very tasty to look at), Cipriani is a very snooty but tasty Italian restaurant in DIFC. I’ve only been once before because it’s really quite expensive, and it was such a treat! I didn’t think I would really have the opportunity…

Celeb Date Night!

Restarting my blog this week has already made it look like I’m a bit celebrity obsessed. Two of three posts with a famous chef. This is about to make it look even more true, when acutally I’ve generally not got a clue who anyone is. I mean, you’re talking to the girl who walked straight…

#SaltBaeBurger update!

As you all know, I went for lunch in the newly opened Salt Bae Burger in DIFC this week, and loved it! In fact, I loved it so much that I quickly wrote up about it and posted the next morning. This promoted two things…

#SaltBaeBurger

It’s always a big deal when a new restaurant opens in DIFC. Who doesn’t like new places to go and try? However, this may be the biggest opening for a while. Forever ago (ok, only a few months) the billboards went up around a closed restaurant space. Not too long after that, rumours started to…

The Seychelles – Part 1

After a seemingly very quick flight from Dubai, we arrived in the Seychelles just in time for a beautiful sunrise. The view from the plane is always one of my favourites because of the clouds (see here), but what made this extra special is the tiny islands you see all around you. I knew that…
