  • Ready to party?

    I’ve grabbed Caroline at Bucks-based Perfect Peony for a quick piece of ‘events therapy’.

  • Recipe: Poached salmon in rice wine and soy sauce with sprout stir fry

    This the lovely Pamela, one of a growing band of dedicated foodies I meet who has turned her passion into a business and is found a rather tidy niche. ChenMoore Chopsticks is all about demystifying oriental food (Pamela is from Taiwan originally, but cooks across the Far Eastern regions) and showing that it’s not all […]

  • Stellar private dining

    I am sooooo looking forward to telling you about Oxford Private Dining. Because it’s amazing. And good value. And a really special thing to do. The Sir Charles Napier is a fine dining pub near Chinnor that Mr Muddy and I have gone to countless times for the simple reason that it’s incredible food in […]
