Green is the new black

Vegetarian

This may be the greenest drink I have ever consumed. But green is good right? Green comes from grene rooting to the words grass and grow and its synonymous with spring and vitality! Green is good.

This drink is undoubtedly good…..
1/2 cucumber

1/2 courgette

Handful of kale

Handful of spinach 

A celery stalk

Bunch of parsley

1 tbsp chia seeds

1 tbsp maca seeds

Good, but not the tastiest! ūüėä

Guilty pleasure too terrible to tell….but I will!

Lambrini for those of you who don’t know, is a cheap, fizzy, low alcohol content wine which is sadly associated with underage teens trying to get tiddly!

However, it’s light, refreshing and easy to drink and every now and again, me and Gav treat ourselves! 

What’s your guilty pleasure?

I have fallen in to the coffee trap at age 30.

For years in the office a faced questions of disbelief such as “what? You don’t drink hot drinks???” and I took a small level of enjoyment in saying “No, just water for me thanks” but it has not securely locked me in its grasp and I am now a fully fledged caffeine addict.

So, happy Friday peeps, enjoy coffee, get through your day and be ready for the weekend!

   

Tom Kerridge: The Hand and Flowers, Marlow

Duck, Food, Food general, Foodie

Two days ago it was my 30th birthday and I was lucky enough to visit Tom Kerridge’s 2 Mitchillin star restaurant,¬†The Hand and Flowers in Marlow.

For the starter I opted for the Duck liver parfait with orange chutney and toasted brioche and Gav went for the Salt bake swede and haggis tart with crispy lamb, chantilly de cherve and wiltshire truffle.

The duck was without a doubt the bast starter I have ever had! It was amazingly creamy with such a delicate taste, I could have eaten it all night and left amazingly satisfied.

I enjoyed the Essex lamb bun with sweet breads and salsa verde and Gav went for the Half beer roasted chicken with caramelized cauliflower, sweet garlic puree, oak gravy and a mushroom crunch.

We ordered chips also….big mistake, we had no room for chips!

To wash it all down we drank a bottle of Pheasants tears with was dry and unfiltered. It has a light amber, pink color and a deep smokey taste, I will certainly be looking for this to add to my stock.

A great night with a relaxed atmosphere.
