You may have seen from my recent Instaposts that I have upped my bread-making game to the echelons of french bread. Yes, I attempted to make baguettes. And I did not totally fail. I was very happy about this. I bloody love bread. Not quite as much as I love rice, but it's high up … Continue reading Cooking for Wan: For the Love of Bread
I often get asked whether it's difficult to cook for one (or rather, get told it 'must be difficult') and to be honest, no, it's the easiest thing in the world. There's no one else to please apart from me and if I want to eat just a massive bowl of mashed potatoes for dinner … Continue reading Cooking for Wan: The Art of Cooking Solo
Easter. A time for me to reflect on my love of eggs. For your reference, here is a list of my Top 6 types of eggs: Steamed eggs with pork Scrambled eggs Scotch eggs Fried eggs Boiled eggs (so versatile) Century eggs (in the context of salted pork and century egg congee) I'm not sure … Continue reading [Insert Egg Pun Here]

It's quite hard to go out these days without noticing the … Continue reading Vegan Food Made Easy

This time last year I was living a mini-dream in Sweden - a holiday I decided to indulge in because, quite frankly, I was having the worst time in actual real life (professionally). It happens to us all, and … Continue reading Around the world in 80 (x 4) days
*KLAXON* FOOD PORN ALERT. If you don't like looking at photos of food, then I suggest you leave now. This week has been somewhat unusual in that I had quite a few meals out. Contrary to popular belief, I don't eat out half as often as I used to/people think I do. This is a … Continue reading Good Eats – a week in the life of #ConnieEats
That time I invented Lemon Quiche.
Two Cats Kitchen is definitely in my top 5 dining experiences, like, ever. The food there makes me squeal with delight (quite literally); the textures and flavours are so unexpected (yet obvious at the same time), each mouthful is a little morsel of joy. With a 7-course taster menu, that's a lot of little morsels. The … Continue reading Good Eats – Two Cats Kitchen
