Yes, i took the one that spoilt the display🤭 these little salted chocolate pistachio brownies from @lighthauscafe were soft and super chocolatey. 💯
we stopped in there to refuel after an @ikeauk visit yesterday 🤯 (i love ikea really. 😁) we had an excellent lunch then picked one of these up to take away. i wish we’d taken more. they bake everything onsite and if this was anything to go by i need to go back for more. 👌🏻 the ☕️ & decor are fab too.
Taco tuesday 🌮 do you remember when tacos were crunchy tortilla shells that broke when you tried to put all the things you wanted in them? 😫good old @oldelpaso. what you get now is a world away from those do-it-yourself packs. now @supertacoslondon has arrived in fulham @markethalls, run by the guys who originally set up #breddos. they’ve gone back to their street food roots. because it’s in amongst other traders if you have a friend who doesn’t like tacos 🤨 you don’t have to compromise! 🙌🏻 there’s a meal deal with two tacos like this, plus salad, rice and beans for £10. .
My actual kitchen. 💙 i cannot contain my excitement. this is what has been occupying most of my thoughts for the past four months - and long before that. 🙈 the builders are back today and in a few weeks we can start moving stuff in! 🙌🏻 i’ve basically been saving for my dream kitchen my entire life (though some of it went on travel!). i can’t quite believe it’s nearly here. 😆😁💃 there have been so many options i’ve loved in the decision process; it’s terrifying to choose something that really needs to be around for a while, but so far i’m loving how it’s coming together. 😊 🏠
What do you mean this isn’t my house? 🏠 yesterday i went to sussex for the wedding of my mum’s friend. she’s 69 and was marrying for the first time. it was so wonderful to watch them in love. 💗 in between the ceremony and the reception we went for a little walk around lewes and i found my new house. 💛 of course i also found a chocolate shop down a cute little alley. do check out bonne bouche if you go, it’s very sweet.
Ah @honeyandco 💛 i love stopping here for cake. i love how they change it up so often (or it feels like it!). it was the first place i went for my full day cake tour this week (#blessed 😆). •
the hazelnuts in this were so fresh and crispy. using great ingredients makes such a difference. did you know the honeys also have a podcast? i’m just downloading some episodes now for my drive later today. 😊 any other podcasts you recommend?
Always happiest when eating chocolate. ☺️❤️ especially a @pierremarcolini x @victoriabeckham heart-shaped hazelnut praline. 💗😍 coming to pm stores in october along with three others. the passionfruit & rose ganache is especially beautiful. •
Some flowers for you this morning. 💐 i love how london is really just a collection of villages. 💗 yesterday i spent a few hours wandering around my neighbourhood’s annual “jumble trail”. i spent £16 and came home with @danlepard’s short & sweet book, some tea cups, a brownie (for @macmillancancer ), some deep fried bread (i know! 😍) and a game of risk. a successful walk! though arguably i probably should have *had* a stall first to get rid of things... 🤔🤫 •
what interesting things does your bit of london do? i’d love to know.
The end of an exceptionally busy and totally delicious week: this praline dessert at @twgteaofficial that i couldn’t finish but couldn’t bear to leave. 😍 i spent the afternoon learning about and sampling some of their 800 😳 teas and enjoying a delicious lunch. i don’t think i would have guessed from the outside that the food would be this good so i’m so pleased i was invited to try it. i’ll definitely go back. the earl grey chocolate tart was also 👌🏻 •
this is my first weekend with no @chocolatetours to guide (for me! 😄) for a while. any bright suggestions of what to do with it are most welcome! our house is still chaos so i’m keen to get out for at least a bit of it!
Still one of my favourite bakeries, the bread at @thedustyknuckle is perfect - holey and crusty and soft and just the right amount of sour. 🍞 ✅ after listening to the hilarious story of their beginnings at @countertalk’s brilliant bread event on monday night i went with my tour group on tuesday to show them just how good it is. they agreed. 💛 especially on the not-in-shot cheese & nduja toastie - crowned “the best toasted sandwich ever”. 👏🏻
Can’t tell you how delighted i was to see the sun back this weekend. after yesterday’s delightful @chocolatetours i went down to brixton in the name of research 🤓 and demolished this vegan chip butty - an arepa filled with cassava chips and plantain, vegan feta, garlic mayo and tomato and avocado salsa. it was delicious all the more so for the streaming sun and chatter of the crowds. i bloody love london. 💛 now if the sun can stay at least a few more weeks that would be great. please. thanks. 🙏🏻
