I’m one of those food bloggers who snaps a shot of a dish right before I eat it. I work full time, I have two kids and I’m always out and about. I don’t have the time nor the inclination to make food for the blog that I’m not going […]

What’s going on within the Dubai food scene right now? Here are the places I’ve been, restaurants I’m excited about, what’s buzzing on social media, chef movements and general food news.

Where to eat, drink and stay in Champagne

In a previous post, I discussed the difficulties that wine tasting travellers may face whilst attempting to visit the region of Champagne. It’s not so straightforward as visiting many other wine regions around the world, and needs just a little foreplanning if you wish to do it properly. Many will […]

Visiting Champagne? Tips for your tour.

Although Champagne is one of the most well known wines in the world, visiting the region is not as simple as many would expect, especially if you want to get the best of it. After two visits with plenty of research and aforethought, I’m still learning what it’s all about, and […]
