A couple of weeks ago I headed to London and the very cool YouTube Creator Space, to meet up with the lovely lads from the world’s most engaged YouTube channel SORTEDfood. I was there to find out all about their very exciting new collaboration with Co-Op – Now Cook It – in which they hope that together they can start to bridge the cooking skills gap that exists in young people today. They wanted to provide something that would get young… View Post

The event was held at the Bluefin Building in London with beautiful views over the London skyline including the Shard. It… View Post

We popped to the Co-Op at the end of our street and bought a few more things and some decorative bits,… View Post

A few weeks ago we took a little visit to a new restaurant that had recently opened in Nottingham – Thaikhun – a Thai dining experience serving Thai street food. I absolutely love Thailand and Thai food – we went travelling there during our round the world trip years ago and fell in love with the authentic Thai flavours of Lemongrass and Galangal, and the Massaman and Red and Green Curries. It’s an incredibly beautiful country with an amazing culture… View Post
