Review: The White Dog Cafe, Philadelphia

As a food blogger, I probably have a slightly different view of being a “foodie.”  So when, on a trip to Philadelphia to meet family friends, they told me that the White Dog Cafe was a foodie kind of place, I was envisioning something like El Bulli!  But what they meant was that it was […]

Review: The Violet Bakery, Hackney

I don’t really make it to the ultra-trendy Hackney (or as I describe it to my sister, the Brooklyn of London) that much.  It is still a bit out of the way and since I work and study more south-west, it tends to take a bit more time than I have to enjoy delicious baked […]

Delicious Kernow Trail

As part of our quest to see the UK this year, Beardy Husband and I really wanted to make sure we saw Cornwall.  We’ve heard from many people, both friends and family, that it’s one of the most beautiful parts of the UK and well worth a visit – in fact, the popularity of holiday […]

Food Tours in Athens

Review: Pizza Union, Kings’ Cross

I have been, rightly, accused of being very cheap.  It’s true, I’m not a fan of spending money.  I’m the person who photographs all my grocery receipts for a pence, loves a coupon and will answer a million surveys for money from Amazon.  So when Beardy Bestie Fran suggested that we try some places she […]

Foods of NY Tours: Chelsea Market and the Meatpacking District

My family does not believe in quiet vacations.  You know those people who go on beach vacations and just relax for a week in the sun?  Not our thing.  We are going to see places and do things.  So obviously as a foodie fan, I was super excited when Beardy Mum suggested that we try […]
