A very decadent Sunday at Trinity

Whenever someone tells me their favourite restaurant in London, it goes firmly on my ever-expanding “to visit” list. This city is overrun with incredible restaurants offering up some of the best food in the world and so when someone singles out a specific place, you know it’s going to be good. Our great friends Laura and Steven […]

Kerala – Part Four – Exploring the backwaters

Our last two days in Kerala were the ones we had been most excited about. When planning our trip, everyone we talked to said that floating through the backwaters of Kerala was one of their top travelling experiences. After trawling the internet for hours we booked ourselves in for two nights on our own private houseboat with […]

Kerala – Part Three – Thekkady

At the end of our magical stay at Spice Tree Munnar (post on it here), we kissed goodbye to the jaw-dropping views from our private terrace, had one last dip in our dreamy infinity pool and hopped back on the road in search of a tea factory.

Kerala – Part Two – Munnar

After a morning exploring Fort Kochi we hopped in the car for the five hour drive up into the hills of Munnar to our next home. Five hours sounds like a lot but when you’re winding your way up and around endless hilltops carpeted by emerald green tea plantations with incredible valley after incredible valley to […]

Kerala – Part One – Fort Kochi

In the midst of February Mr Kelly and I jetted off on our honeymoon in a bid to escape the last few weeks of winter. We decided almost immediately to embrace the newly weds’ cliché and spend a week in the Maldives but we wanted to combine this with some sort of adventure and a dose of culture too. […]

Stairway to foodie heaven at The Other Naughty Piglet

Naughty Piglets is one of our favourite date night spots (check out my post here if you missed it), so when we heard that the power couple behind it were opening up a sister restaurant in town, we made a booking immediately. It’s always a worry that the quality will drop when a restaurant branches out but I was pretty confident […]

Valentine’s Day at The Ledbury

This Valentine’s Day Mr Kelly whisked me off to our long time favourite restaurant. After tasting the best dish of our lives at The Ledbury back in 2015, we were ridiculously excited to return and see what Brett and his team had been up to over the past two years. With its two Michelin stars, this is another […]

Bread heaven at e5 Bakehouse

In the midst of our crazy pre-wedding starvation, my lovely friend Laura and I booked ourselves on to the much raved about sourdough course at the e5 Bakehouse. On reflection, with pretty much zero bread-making experience, signing up to a seven hour master class in sourdough was slightly mental. But if you deprive two carb-lovers of all […]

Tapas at Salt Yard

An oldie, but definitely a goodie, this Spanish-Italian tapas joint has long been a firm favourite in the Kelly household. If you want guaranteed great food and wine, served in a relaxed atmosphere without that eye-watering bill, Salt Yard is the perfect place for you. Home to London’s best mac and cheese and some pretty damn good croquettes […]

Padella – pasta worth queuing for

If you’ve been anywhere near London Bridge after 6pm recently, you’ll have spotted the queues around the block at this teensy little pasta spot. Padella‘s plates of reasonably priced fresh pasta have been attracting hordes of carb-craving Londoners since it opened last year. With a number of impressive awards under its belt, including “Best Cheap Eats” and “Best […]
