Sweet potato, bbq peanut burgers…

I love cooking. I love J. Ergo, cooking with J? Well if I had a tail, it would spin with happiness whizzing me up off the ground in the style of some wily Warner Brothers cartoon character. I love it.

I love that he’s open to trying new things. I love that he doesn’t question some of my less mainstream suggestions. And I love that he gets how I love it. This little dinner is definitely going on the ‘make me again’ list because I have a serious thing for good burgers. Really, who doesn’t? Read More

Birthday tap dancing at ‘Top Hat’ and tapas at Pix-Bar, Soho…

Tap dancing, ravishing frocks and timeless music followed by divine finger food and red wine in an tiny, intimate, candle lit tapas bar make for a very gorgeous birthday celebration in my mind…yep, J takes birthday celebrations to a whole new level.

Pix Bar in Soho has locations in Notting Hill, Soho, Covent Garden and Islington and although I can only comment on the Soho spot, I’d bet good money each one is as alluring and charming and lovely a find as anywhere you could imagine.

Combining the choice and ease of a smorgasbord with the quality of table service food, Pix invites you to help yourself to a multitude of savoury and sweet dishes laid out across their bar. Keep the skewer in each dish that represents the price and pay at the end. Simple. Different. Winning.

Tortilla. Croquetas. Meatballs. Fritters. Chorizo. Done. Done. Done. Done. Done. Yum. Yum. Yum. Yum. Yum.

If you’re looking for a different way of dining Spanish style, I urge you to give Pix a try…it’s the kind of place you won’t be able to wait another 365 days to go back to.
