easy cheese twists.

On account of the glorious weather we've been having (no doubt when I post this it'll start to rain...) I've been truly embracing picnic recipes. With my chorizo scotch eggs last week and a few others to come, I thought today I'd say this really super simple cheese twist recipe. I used smoky Applewood cheddar and a scattering of sesame seeds for extra texture - but really the combo is up to you!

afternoon tea at hilton garden inn, birmingham.

One of my favourite things to do... afternoon tea! Even better, afternoon tea with a lovely fellow foodie and blogger. Amelia of xameliax invited me along as her +1 at Hilton Garden Inn not long ago. Cake, bubbles, tiny sarnies and chit chat? How could I say no? I hadn't been to a Hilton for afternoon tea either, so I was really intrigued to see how they fared on the tea and scones front.

chorizo scotch eggs.

Chorizo Scotch Eggs
Chorizo Scotch Egg Recipe

I've been wanting to try a scotch egg recipe with a twist for a while. Since getting a tiny deep fat fryer, I've tried out fried goat's cheese, triple cooked chips, vegan banana fritters and now even parsnip shoestring fries. But with the picnic season soon upon us - chorizo style scotch eggs had to happen. With a hint of sweet paprika and a bit of a kick, these can be made as hard or soft boiled scotch eggs to your liking. So simple and really satisfying to make.

Byron Burger

Byronissimo - the hamburger with an Italian accent. A medium rare 6oz Byron patty smothered in melting Fontina cheese, crispy pancetta, pickled red onion and a rich tomato gravy. This Italian take on one of my favourite burgers launched last week, and I couldn't wait to get my hands around one.
