Bengali Salmon Parcels

I found this excellent recipe for Bengali Salmon Parcels years ago on BBC Good Food. Sadly it’s no longer listed there, but this is the dish I make now from memory. This is a great way to use up salmon fillets that are languishing at the bottom of your freezer and it’s also quick enough to make during the week with minimal stress.

Hello, I’m Mystic Meg and I’m peering into my crystal ball and predicting what the food trends for 2019 will be!

The Instagram Shadowban Explained

In this post I’m going to diverge from the world of food that I normally write about and have a bit of a go explaining the Instagram shadowban. Have you heard of it?

London Restaurant Review – Avenue, St James’s

If I could pinpoint where the trend comes from, I would say we could thank our American cousins, (who are nuts for a bottomless brunch, check out brunchsf to see what I’m talking about) and also the mad, day-long bottomless brunch extravaganzas that take place in the Middle East, with Dubai and Abu Dhabi leading the pack.
