A Thursday evening

This evening I headed down one of Bath’s many cobbled streets to The Canary Gin and Wine Bar. I thoroughly recommend trying their refreshing Gin Garden cocktail before the summer’s out.

Pistachio Loaf Cake

You should never judge a book my its cover but you should definitely judge this cake by its prettiness. I love the way the green pistachio looks against the white of the drizzling icing sugar.

This spot in this city is one of my favourites. Bath has turned inside out over the last few years and is now overspilling with restaurants, bars and coffee shops all embracing a more continental culture. This particular hub of eateries is built within the old railway arches of Bath train station so its location is second to none for people watching. There’s no better way to start a Sunday than with one of Bertinet’s almond pain au chocolats and a couple of hours taking in the surroundings.

That’s a wrap

Oh my…it’s a big shout but I reckon this might just be the tastiest thing I’ve ever cooked. Nothing could have prepared me for the juicy, tender, sticky, messy first mouthful of this lamb flatbread wrap. I followed the recipe below, marinating the lamb neck fillet for about 24 hours – it’s amazing how doing so can transform a typically tough cut to a melt in the mouth consistency. I pretty much freestyled from there, adding roasted cherry tomatoes and a minty yoghurt dip, and wrapping it all up in my first ever homemade flatbread. I quartered this Jamie recipe and they turned out like a dream. I’m begging you, try it for yourself – you won’t be disappointed.

Seriously good
