Leftovers are a wonderful thing. Cook one thing once, and you have a base to your meals for the next few days. It's cost and time efficient, and can allow you to flex your culinary creativity along the lines of Ready, Steady, Cook, if you're into that kind of thing (I am). As a solo-cook, … Continue reading Cooking for Wan: One Ham, Two (many) Dinners
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.

It happens to us all, and … Continue reading Around the world in 80 (x 4) days

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
