  • Chocally: Chocolate that’s right up my street

    Friday February 21st, 2014

    As an individual plighted by the symbiotic ailments of chocoholism and sugar addiction, it nigh-on kills me to painstakingly extract the Chocally box intact from its bubblewrap when I’d rather tear into it like a frenzied, feral animal who hasn’t eaten for a week. Wipe that smirk off your face imagining my agony. Did no-one inform you that it’s unkind to mock the afflicted?

    Thursday January 23rd, 2014

    When you’re rather fond of a mixed beverage, being instantly presented with a good looking list and the premise that, ‘it’s January – you should still be celebrating New Year’ bodes well for things to come. So is the situation at Babur, the award-winning Indian restaurant on Brockley Rise.

  • Don’t bin those Brussels

    Friday December 13th, 2013

    Christmas is a time of sublime excess bordering on the ridiculous. No matter how many mince pies you munch, or if you go back for seconds, thirds and fourths of festive fare til you bust your belt, you still end up binning more than you bargained for.

    This beguiling book had me at the subtitle – ‘the story of traditional Arab sweets’. Oh, go on then. I’m all ears and I bring with me a whole mouthful of sweet teeth. I’ve also got a fair appetite for a bit of food legacy and legend, so this exotic Middle Eastern delight had my belly dancing from the off.

Stop mainlining mince pies, though - there's a world of feative bakes beyond. Buy to give, or just to gorge, these are all gorgeous....

  • Chocolates to warm the cockles

    Friday December 6th, 2013

    It's apt that Paul's signature hue is a rich royal purple - 'cause there's little doubt that his chocs are fit for Kings and Queens. I may be just a simple commoner, but I always relish the chance to savour his sweets.
