Foodie Film with The Summer Picnic Box from Degustabox

The June Picnic Box from Degustabox was full of even more yummy treats!

The Box contained:
REKORDERLIG Strawberry & Lime cider – This was a pleasant surprise as I don’t normally drink cider, it was refreshing and not as sour as I often find cider can be.
COCONOM Organic Cooconut Sugar – I have been using this in my tea as a healthy alternative to white sugar and I love it!
ZEO Lightly carbonated soft drinks – Refreshing, although not my favourite drink it’s worth trying at least once.
KALLO Corn & Rice Snacks – Easy to eat treats, loved the chocolate and caramel snacks!
ICYCL Vodka Icepop – My absolute favourite in the box, just fantastic!
BRIOCHE PASQUIER Pitch Chocolate Chip & BRIOCHE PASQUIER Pitch Chocolate brioche – Both a little too sweet for me but a good snack on the move for those who like sweet treats.
MELBA Thins Multigrain – Really enjoyed eating these, great with cheese and cucumber.
VYBE Coconut Water – This is an acquired taste, I drank it becasue I know how healthy it is but it was not my favourite.
LOVE CHIN CHIN Chin Chin – I’ve tried these before and will always like these snacks!

Here is a video showing you its contents and why this foodie subscription service is definitely worth trying at least once.

Italian Food heaven at The Bellavita Expo

I had so much fun as a food judge at The Bellavita Food Expo 2015. I had the chance to try Italian food and drink delights that I would not normally get the chance to try and I provided  feedback for the British palate! ke it!

Bellavita Expo took place in London, 19-21 July 2015, after the successful 2014 launch. Last year, 200 Italian producers joined the Expo in London, showing their products to nearly 7,000 visitors, of which 72% were top buyers, experts and internationally reonwned chefs.

Here are a few of the pictures that I took on the day:

A Trip into The Maze Grill Mayfair

This is just a quick write up about Gordon Ramsay’s Maze Grill in Mayfair. I went along for a Friday meal recently and enjoyed it. The service was pleasant and the interior is classy if a little uninspired. The food was as you would expect from a Gordon Ramsay restaurant, great quality without being overly adventurous in terms of flavour.

My friend and I ordered from a set menu which include 3 course and a glass of prosecco for £35. I absolutely loved the prawn ceviche which was so fresh and juicy…juicy is the best way to describe this dish, it was delicious. The sea bass was nice, not necessarily memorable but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I only wish that the pear and plum crumble was a slightly larger portion.
