I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with eggs. As a toddler I loved hard-boiled egg and soliders (or shoulders as I would call them).

It’s the perfect green homage to the … Continue reading A Nourishing Review: Avobar, Covent Garden
With a knowledge of the Italian language, it still makes me chuckle that ‘biscotti’ in every other language refers to this particular type of sweet treat, whereas ‘biscotti’ literally translates to mean ‘biscuits’.
