How do you like your eggs in the morning?

What better way to start a weekend day with your friends or loved one than enjoying brunch, whether that’s popping down to an old favourite or cooking at home (check out my Brunch in Bruxelles Blog series 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6) Last weekend, I wasn’t sure what I fancied for breakfast, but I…

Brighton Pier Afternoon Tea

I think it’s probably very clear from this blog that I’m a “go” girl. James & I spend Saturdays & Sundays at the coast, skiing, visiting the zoo, and always eating. We love to plan our weekends in advance, it’s something to look forward too It all started when James moved to Vienna and expat life encouraged…

Dinner at The Delaunay

Can a restaurant be a lucky charm? I’m not sure but that is how I feel about The Delaunay in London It started a few years ago when I was going through a pretty rigorous interview process, The Delaunay was very close to the office and The Counter at The Delaunay became my pre-interview stop…

Lunch in Honfleur

Earlier this year, I wrote about making the most of a long car journey, clearly my parents got the memo. Recently we organised a jam-packed weekend visiting family in France, which involved a lot of driving Starting on the Friday evening, my parents & I drove to the Eurotunnel, snacked on sushi of course, and…

Summer in the City

Most weekend mornings in Brussels I wake up, turn to James and ask ‘what shall we have for breakfast’, and more often than not I normally mean, where shall we go for breakfast. I then follow to suitably suggest my favourite places, and usually after a guilt-free lie-in, there’s only one place on my mind Holy Bagels, a…

Hotel Schweizerhof Sport und Beautyhotel, Kitzbühel Austria

It was the perfect end of season escape, a resort and hotel we already knew and an unbeliveable last minute deal – how could we resist In truth, Kitzbuhel is not the most affordable of resorts, but we knew what we were getting for our money, quality on and off piste No matter where you…

Rugbyman No.Two, Brussels

It’s all about mussels in Brussels. In February last year, full of excitement, I first blogged about moules frites. Truly, mussels are one of my favourite dishes, so the prospect of a year of eating the “best” mussels was exciting. Whenever we have friends visiting Brussels, I actively encourage that we go for mussels. The big…

Italians in Ixelles, Brussels

I once read that there are more Italians in Brussels than French or Dutch natives. Throughout the past year, I have regularly quoted that. Most disagree but we all agree there are certainly a lots of Italians in Brussels. In Ixelles, this is evident in the sheer number of Italian restaurants there are. My understanding…

Place Brugmann, Brussels

At the weekend, James & took a stroll around Place Brugmann in Brussels. During the summer, I cycled through the square at Place Bruggman to find the bars and restaurants spilling out onto the streets. The atmosphere was electric. As well as being the perfect place for an after work drink during the summer, the…

Valentine’s Day

Boo hoo to all the Valentine’s Day haters, I love Valentine’s Day whether I am single or not. It’s a great day to tell everyone that you love them and that you are grateful for them being in your life. I understand those who say, why do I need a day to tell the person…

Burn’s Night Leftovers

On Saturday Night, James & I hosted our second ever Burn’s Night Supper in Brussels. Last year was such a hoot, we could not resist having another party. You can check out my post from last year here, which is full of details on our evening and the instructions for cooking haggis. Seemingly, after you host…

Brunch in Brussels No.6

I am terrribly sorry, I should have shared the details of this spot forever ago when I first discovered it. The truth is, when my food arrives, I eat it immediately and any thoughts of taking a snap evaporate. So I’ve had nothing to substantiate my post with. Peck 20 Famous for their super bowls…
