Last week I was doing some retail therapy and popped into poundland to take a look at their Easter decor range and found some inspiration. I found these pastel teacups in the home aisle and immediately fell in love. I knew these would make beautiful centrepieces by planting some flowers in them and such a bargain at £1 each how can I resist? So here is how I styled them...
Last year I create these Easter carrot treat bags for the kids at church and now I’m showing you how I made them!
Last week I was invited for lunch with The Potato Project and today I am sharing with you my experience and what I ate.
Recently opened on Noel Street in Soho, The Potato Project is great for a wholesome lunch where you get quality food for a very good price. As you might of guessed from the cafes name it’s all about the potato, however that is only the beginning of the story.
Kesnia the founder and owner was so lovely guiding me through their menu and also shared with me her inspiration for this cafe which came from her Mother’s home cooked Russian meals, and the many ways she used potatoes in her dishes.
Just a warning... the following images may cause your tummies to rumble.
Let’s dig in!
The first dish I tried was the prawn & bourbon which had a lovely sweet, creaming taste. It was full of flavour from the bourbon but wasn’t overpowering and you still tasted the prawns. I was pleasantly surprised by the generous portion size and the amount of prawns you get too. If you’re looking for something lighter than a meatier dish than I would recommend going for this!
I also got to try the shepherds pie ragu which was another unique twist to the standard jacket potato toppings you’ll find in most cafes. The pulled lamb was so soft that it melted in my mouth, it was a fab twist to the traditional shepherds pie which uses minced lamb and went so well with the crispy skin of the potato. The ragu was also delicious and full of flavour it gave a very homey and warm but familiar feeling as if it was made by your own Mother or eating at a friends house.
Another fab invention is their sweet potato cheesecake. I would never thought that sweet potato can be in a cheesecake or a dessert but I have to say it works! The sweetness from both the potato and cream cheese was unusual but simply scrumptious.
Pop by and say hello to the team at The Potato Project:
Open Mon- Sat 10am-6pm

Thank you to Amy & Kesina for having me!

Today I’m taking a break with Williamson Tea as they launch their new Purple Matcha and I’m excited to share it with you.
Williamson Tea has kindly sent me these goodies to make my Purple Matcha and to taste it myself. Can I just take a moment to mention how beautiful the packaging of their tea caddies are? I am a sucker for great branding and packaging and Williams Tea has it on point, I would love to collect all their elephant caddies as they are visually so beautiful.
Getting to know Williamson Tea
What’s so special and unique about Williamson tea is that they have their own farms in Kenya. Their teas are naturally grown with no blending from different sources. There is also no increased carbon footprint transporting the teas from around the world, which I think it’s something we should all consider when supporting a product as it impacts our environment. I admire companies who are conscious about our environment and makes effort to create sustainable products which is what Williamson Tea are all about. To read more about what they do I would highly recommend exploring their website and their blog. Not only is it beautiful to look at but you get to explore the behind the scenes of the company.
Purple Matcha time!
I already love green matcha (I am Asian after all) so hearing that Williamson Tea has launched their own Purple Matcha got me excited to taste it myself. They have combined their purple tea leaves with matcha creating the purple matcha tea. If you are already a fan of green matcha then I am sure you will also enjoy the purple matcha as well. The flavour is stronger and more powerful than green matcha, perfect if you’re looking for a richer taste.
Making the tea the traditional way using a bowl and a bamboo whisk.
Thank you Williamson Tea for my lovely Purple Matcha!
