FUELLING THE FORK

REVIEW: bakery47, Glasgow

bakery47, Glasgow

Let me start by saying that I have never had anything I didn’t absolutely love from bakery47. Ever. And, uh, Andrew and I go there a lot. As in, a lot.
 
It is hands down our favourite place to head for breakfast and brunch in Glasgow. When we talk about checking out other places for breakfast, we mean well. We do. But we both secretly know, deep down, that it’s not going to happen. Because bakery47 has stolen our stomachs.

Good morning my friends and HAPPY WEDNESDAY! Let’s make some NYC Deli Style Pastrami, Rocket and Mustard sandwiches to help us over that mid week hump.
 
Now, I would like to preface by saying that I have never been to New York, and have therefore never tried a legit NYC Deli style pastrami sandwich.

Guys… I’m fairly sure I will have said this before about numerous recipes here on my blog, but… this rhubarb, raspberry and ginger crumble is quite possibly the most delicious thing I have made.

Farmhouse Chicken and Vegetable Pesto Soup

Farmhouse Chicken and Vegetable Pesto Soup

Lunch | 25th May 2016 | By

Not only is this chicken and vegetable pesto soup my favourite soup I have made, it is apparently the nicest soup that Andrew has ever tasted. So there’s that, I guess.
 
And would it be totally uncool of me to secretly agree with him? It’s not very British and self deprecating of me to speak fondly about something I am proud of, but the thing is: I’m on the verge of entering into a fully committed relationship with this soup. It sits on the table next to me in the evening and keeps me warm, keeps me going through the work day when I need a boost, and I feel all warm and glowy just looking and thinking about it.

Chocolate Banana and Hazelnut Mousse Cake

Chocolate Banana Mousse Cake With Hazelnut

Dessert | 22nd May 2016 | By

So we need to talk about this vegan chocolate banana mousse cake with hazelnut crust, roasted chopped hazelnuts and a chocolate tahini drizzle.
 
Okay, that sounds like a bit of a mouthful. But the thing is, I always find these vegan desserts a little tricky when it comes to summarising the ingredient list in a way that truly gets across all of their delicious elements.

REVIEW: Inver Restaurant, Strathlachlan

Inver Restaurant, Strathlachlan

Today we’re talking Inver restaurant, a beautiful contemporary Scottish eatery nestled amongst the countryside of Argyll & Bute. Scottish readers, listen up!
 
So a couple of weeks back, Andrew and I found ourselves with a rare free weekend. I’ve lived in Scotland for almost two years now and the furthest I have ever ventured outside of the cities of Glasgow and Edinburgh… is Loch Lomond. It’s shameful and not a fact I share lightly, particularly given my penchant for travelling away from the beaten track and discovering hidden gems.
