the stable, birmingham.


Dorset born, Dorsey bred. At The Stable, they're proud of their pizza and savvy about their cider. Whether it's colourful, innovative pizza toppings or seeking out the latest cider blends, their casual dining atmosphere makes their locations a fun place for large parties, date days or birthday gatherings. I recently went along to try out their Summer offerings before a local gig in Birmingham, and it couldn't have been a more perfect setting.

Malteser millionaire's shortbread

I finally found them... the new Maltesers buttons! And like most delicious chocolatey inventions, I couldn't help get creative in the kitchen with them. From cookies to cupcakes, I couldn't decide what would really show off the crunchy texture of these moreish morsels. And so here is my take on a millionaire's shortbread with a twist.

my best foodie destinations in soho and chinatown, london.


I love exploring what London has to offer - especially when it involves food! One of my favourite areas for restaurants, bakeries and cafes is Chinatown, nearby the bustling atmosphere of Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Covent Garden and Soho. From beautifully made bao buns to delicate dumplings, I'm in awe of anything Chinese or Japanese inspired. 

The thing is, I live in the Midlands and London isn't always on the cards. I love to visit on the Leicester to London St Pancras line but it's not always cheap - think £70 return before you've left the platform. So when Sn-ap got in touch to let me know they've started a new Leicester to London route with single fares starting from £5-7, I hopped at the chance. Hopped on a bus, that is.
