Alan will be making feijoada tonight so that is an absolute treat and completely comforting. But I find that because of the weather I am craving a lot of Asian food at the moment. I am particularly wishing we lived in London so that I can order Korean food from Deliveroo! I would love, at … Continue reading Craving Korean comfort food
We'd walked past Poppie's in Soho several times during our recent trips to London. The Soho branch is on Old Compton Street and Poppie's in Soho has taken over what used to be Bobby Chin's House of Ho.

I'd even go as far as saying that I prefer chicken to any other meat. My all-time favourite chicken dish, however, is Southern fried chicken. I … Continue reading The (Chicken) Bucket List
