Hidden Factory: Dining Inspired By Gaudí In A Barcelona Warehouse

The streets of Barcelona’s Raval neighbourhood become a mishmash of sensations after dark. Some corners stink of pee. Others are home to African men singing, catcalling and yelling. Young people with ripped jeans and faces adorned with metal move in groups from street to street, bar to bar. We run out of Casa Almirall, giddy […]

Everything I Ate In February

The 1st of February I was in Barcelona so let’s just say this month started off with a bang, followed by a resolution to eat more at home. A resolution at which I failed, to epic proportions. But that failure meant that I tried some new places, revisited old favourites, moved some to the black […]

Coria del Río: The Guadalquivir River, Japan & The Typical Bleak Fish

The other day I made a new discovery about Seville that I never expected to discover. In a pueblo in the province of Seville, which consists of no more than 25,000 people, around 700 people happen to have a family name from over 10,000 kilometres away – japón (Japan). As it turns out, it was an event from long […]

The Fiesta de la Calçotada: A Day To Honour Catalunya’s Chargrilled Onion

As I peeled back the char-grilled skin of the calçot, while performing a balancing act involving myself, my heavy winter coat, my camera, my overweight handbag, and trying to lean up against the long white plastic tables set up especially for the event, I couldn’t help but breathe a sigh of relief. I was finally […]

Everything I Ate In January

Oh, I’ve missed doing these posts. Screw looking back at the last month in goals, achievements, highs and lows – why not look back a the last month in food! The New Year meant new things, new friends, and a lot of food – both old and new – so this month, I have documented […]

Crush Festival: A Day Of Food, Wine & Music In The Adelaide Hills

One Sunday earlier last year, I took to the Adelaide Hills in South Australia for the annual Crush Festival. What this festival entails is many of the wineries in the Adelaide Hills wine region opening their doors for the day. They put on an event with food, wine, music and good times, and you make your way […]

12 Travel Moments & 12 Eating Experiences To Mark The Last 12 Months

I know we are already a week into 2016, but in Spain it doesn’t really feel like the New Year gets properly underway until the Three Kings have come on the evening of the 5th of January and thrown literally thousands of kilograms of sweets in the air. This is followed by the final public holiday […]

Four Ways To Have Experiences Without Travelling

I still get a kick out of sharing my stories, adventures and misadventures with the world on my blog (or maybe just my mum, who knows), but lately for quite awhile now there has been that spark missing. One might call it “lack of inspiration”. However, after long days and nights pondering as to where exactly […]

When Everything Looks Bleak (Or, That Time I Found Awesome Gluten Free Lunch in North Wales)

It has to be said, eating gluten free in the UK was a lot more difficult than I expected. I mean, I always found something, but it would have been nice to not get accidentally “glutenised” several times. In cosmopolitan London, initial requests to find out the gluten free dishes on the menus were met with blank stares. “G-whaaaaaaat?”. In North Wales, the reaction […]
