Foodie BLISS!

Today i went up to London with The Hubster for a business meeting. While he dealt with the business i wandered around Fortnum & Masons for an hour and ended up leaving with this bounty lol



The “Kitchen Linen” is an apron. I really needed one, or so I’ve been telling myself since i got home 😉 I love F&M…its up there with Libertys as one of my favourite shops in London.

Im still on the hunt for my Anchovy Butter so i bought this…



In the hopes that if i mash it with butter it’ll give the same effect….i’ll let you know…

Then it was off to Burger & Lobster in Soho for dinner (The Hubster now having finished his meeting) and then back to Piccadilly for a trip round the Japan Centre (a fantastic place, even if you don’t know what half the stuff is used for and can’t read Japanese).


Of course, a trip up to Piccadilly just wouldn’t be right if i didn’t pop into Waterstones (especially if you have a money off voucher burning a hole in your pocket). Their cookery book section is incredible and I’m always spoilt for choice…but i ended up with Harold McGee’s Keys to Good Cooking.

So thats my bedtime reading sorted for tonight 😉


Cook Book Addict Heaven!

I had to go to the bank today to pay a cheque in, and as the bank is virtually opposite Baggins Books i thought i’d just nip in and see if there was anything i fancied. You can spend hours in that shop…just look at all these cookery books!!!!!



But i wasn’t really looking for the bog standard cookery book…i wanted something a bit different, something i could read. 


These 3 caught my eye (although i have already got the Nigella but its in storage….i’ll donate this copy to my local charity shop if i ever manage to find my original copy).

Not bad for £14.50 eh 😉

Right, back to the sofa (the pIzza’s don’t need cooking until later) with a Latte and some new reading material…now if only i could stop bloody coughing! 😦

Recommend me a cook/food book…
