Smoked Cheese

Cheese seemed like an easy choice to christen the new smoker. For the first batch we tried a variety of different cheese to see what work best – including Manchego, Camembert, some raw cow’s milk cheese that we forgot the name of, plus a baybel and some cheddar that happened to be in the fridge. To…


White Chocolate Shell Vanilla Cupcakes

Okay, so today i have been busy in the kitchen and thought – what the heck! Lets make the birth of my blog a double whammy!   Here is another yummy recipe – The Chocolate Shells may seem like an effort, but i think the effect they have is worth it and of course, whats…


And so it Begins… White Chocolate Tray Bake

Welcome to my first recipe post! I thought i would begin with a recipe sweet and indulgent, but yet so simple to make! Perfect for when you get uncontrollable cake cravings (I can’t be the only one who gets those.. Right?) I hope you enjoy making it as much as i did and please, go…

It’s a great way to combine alcohol and farming without any risk of crashing a tractor into a ditch. We’ve picked seven…


14 Famous Pubs

Today’s crawl comes courtesy of Great Little Place, and their ’14 London pubs with revered, renowned or wretched regulars’.

Sam Smith Pubs

What better crawl to start on than all (well, most) of the Sam Smith pubs in central London. 24 pubs in total so best stretched out over a whole weekend or broken down into more manageable chunks. The Cardinal and Anchor Tap are bit far out but well worth a visit! We recommend the Best…
