Mr M and I are back from a fantastic break. The highlight of our eating while based in London was our lunch at the Fat Duck, but that epic post is still being finished. I thought that in the meantime I would run through some of the other gastronomic high points of our time in […]

La Belle Mitte is the brand new venture for a pair of self confessed Francophiles. The tiny store on Hardware Lane is a macaron-lovers dream, as it is wholly macaron focussed. Macarons are the only food they sell, and the other items on the limited menu are strictly French – tea from Mariage Frères and artisanal […]

I have been searching for the perfect macaron for a long time and have been documenting the search from the beginning of this blog.

So after a rash of terrible macaron experiences, I have been lucky enough to finally unearth a few good macarons. Unfortunately, my luck has changed again… In my macaron pursuits I have been told several times to try Laurent’s version. However, after reading Duncan’s review of Laurent’s macarons (dry, crumbling, misshapen and all with a […]

For my birthday, my lovely work friends A, A, S, S & R gave me a voucher to Rockpool Bar & Grill. I went to Rockpool years ago when it first opened for a big celebration dinner and I remember sharing a rib-eye for two with Mr M. I enjoyed my meal at Rockpool but […]

Breadwell is one of a multitude of coffee shops situated right near my workplace.  A differentiator is its great selection of teas (including a pretty great chai if you are that way inclined). I recently noticed a new inclusion in the cakes cabinet – teeny tiny little macarons. Obviously they were calling for me to try them. The other […]
