Berry & Vanilla Overnight Oats

Berry & Vanilla Overnight Oats

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to discover berry & vanilla overnight oats. Now, I can’t imagine eating anything else for breakfast. They are SO easy to make, SO insanely delicious and really do fill you up for hours and hours. I’m a terrible morning person, so knowing this bowl of goodness is waiting in the fridge […]

The Honest Cooks is now LIVE!

The Honest Cooks is now LIVE!

You may have already guessed by now that my partner and I are completely food-obsessed. We travel to eat, and when we’re not traveling, we love to experiment in the kitchen – constantly inspired by dishes we eat, menus we read or passionate chefs we come across. We really do believe in flavours not fads. So we’ve decided to create a […]

A Unique Stay at Masseria Prosperi

A Unique Stay at Masseria Prosperi

After exploring the gorgeous little town of Ostuni, we hopped back in our rental car and drove straight down the coast for our next stop, Masseria Prosperi. We read great reviews of this masseria – a contemporary country house, elegantly designed with chic white decor. It’s even home to farm animals (donkeys, chickens, horses and goats) as well as two very inviting swimming […]

One Day in Ostuni

One Day in Ostuni

Our next stop in Puglia, after the incredible lunch at Masseria il Frantoio, was probably my favourite part of the trip: Ostuni, The White City. It’s famous for bright whitewashed walls, extra bedazzling in the Italian sun, dotted with coloured doors, green cacti and potted plants. It’s really one of the prettiest little towns I’ve ever been to. […]

Masseria il Frantoio Lunch Experience

Masseria il Frantoio Lunch Experience

So you’ve heard about Monopoli and Polignano a Mare, where we basically spent our days hopping between restaurants and cafes (with a couple of beaches thrown in). Puglia truly puts you in a constant state of delirious joy. I still wish every meal would start with a complimentary bread basket, bruschetta, olives and pasta – all before the main course event. […]

Sunset at Polignano a Mare

Sunset at Polignano a Mare

After spending several relaxing days in Monopoli, we hopped back in our rental car and set off for the popular beach town, Polignano a Mare (only 15 minutes drive away). The atmosphere in both towns are on complete opposite ends of the Puglian scale. As soon as we arrived in Polignano a Mare, it quickly became obvious where […]

The Best of Monopoli, Puglia

The Best of Monopoli, Puglia

My latest travel adventures took me to Puglia, a region in Southern Italy with overwhelming beauty. Coming here is the ultimate escape from the tourist masses. The whole of Puglia is incredibly laid back, where time gratefully slows down and you can instantly feel your body relax. But to be honest, if there’s one reason to come here, it […]

The Best Lasagne Recipe

The Best Lasagne Recipe

Whether there’s any real truth in it, they say you’re meant to ‘fuel up,’ or ‘carb load’ before a big running event. And that’s exactly what I did. The night before my last half-marathon race, I conjured up the best lasagne recipe yet. This lasagne is honestly so tasty and satisfying. It’s the perfect dish to treat yourself if you’re after […]

Lima Restaurant, London

Lima Restaurant, London

If you’re looking for a restaurant to check out in London for a special occasion, the creative and eclectic Peruvian menu at Lima Fitzrovia could be the perfect choice. I came here with my family after reading several great reviews, particularly that it’s the first and only Michelin starred Peruvian restaurant. So I was eager to see what […]

La Gomera: The Forgotten Canary Island

La Gomera: The Forgotten Canary Island

Most people have never even heard of La Gomera, and neither had I until earlier this year. Having stumbled across it whilst doing some travel research, the more I read, the more I knew I had to go. I booked a flight straight away, and left the rest as a mystery until I arrived. Getting to the island does […]
