Food & coffee in Hong Kong – the best and the rest

    Good for coffee The Mixing Room is worth climbing the steps for and Café Sausalito which reminded us of one of our great coffee experiences in Sausalito, San Francisco. Accro is the one coffee geeks (like my bf) seem to pay a pilgrimage too. Plus Fuel Espresso and Pacific Coffee seems to be the […]

Eating in Vancouver

Eating in Vancouver

I mentioned my love for Sylvia’s to a local in Vancouver who went on to rattle off a number of modern alternatives. I’ll take Sylvia’s old-fashioned service and old-fashioned view of the sunset; give me the oldest hotel in Vancouver on English Bay any day of the week! We paid pilgrimage twice during this trip. The first, we were too […]

Coffee in Vancouver

Coffee in Vancouver

Interestingly on this Vancouver trip, all the new people I met wanted to meet in Bakeries. A mix of Italian, French or general. I was introduced to Truffles – the bf and went back there for a little lunch, Sciué, Tartine and  Faubourg, all pretty close to where we were staying; I walked everywhere! What’s really […]

Food review: NibNibs

We’ve been trying out some NibNibs snacks over the festive season. An alternative to crisps, I was fortunate to have had a selection sent over from Yorkshire, with love me to try out and review. Before I even open one of them I love that they come in boxes which makes them perfect to pass round while watching a film, […]

Regulars (the JQ Royalty) know what the 1B is (sausage pattie, bacon, poached egg, toast with jam/marmalade & filter coffee or breakfast tea) or indeed the […]

Birmingham: Where to go for Afternoon Tea

Birmingham: Where to go for Afternoon Tea

As published on Birmingham Favourites. Brunch and afternoon tea are my favourite meals of the day; they come at a time when I’m most hungry, 11am and 3pm and arrive as a pick-a-mix of treats rather than one plateful of the same thing. With afternoon tea, the kid in me – which frankly never went […]

Vancouver: Where to go for Breakfast

Vancouver: Where to go for Breakfast

Can I ever be bored with breakfast in Vancouver? Even during my annual 10 day trips, I can go to a different place every day and still not fit all my favourites in: Century Plaza – The Benedicts, the French Toast, the perfect 5 star service! I would eat breakfast here more often, if it […]

The No Diet, Diet

The No Diet, Diet

As published on the London Look I’m well aware that any woman size 12 or below who says she doesn’t watch what she eats is scorned upon, probably for good reason too. So I’m not saying I don’t watch what I eat , as I really, really do, I’ll just say that over the years, I have worked on […]

Selecting An Interesting Cake

Selecting An Interesting Cake

By guest blogger For special celebratory events – birthdays, graduations, weddings, anniversaries, etc. – it’s nice to have special decorations and features. Of course, not each and every birthday or graduation needs to be extravagant or particularly unique, but for major milestones it can certainly be nice to take steps to set an event apart […]
