Where to eat in Lari, Tuscany

On our last trip to Italy, we discovered the beautiful little town of Lari, Tuscany. It is a hill-top town, reached by windy roads (most entertainingly traveled to by Vespa).

Lari is home to the makers of Martelli Pasta – arguably the yummiest pasta out there! And you know I love my pasta. I will be sure to dedicate a whole post to the beauty of this pasta soon.

We head to Lari out of season in October, one Sunday, for lunch. We’d never been to eat there before so wasn’t quite sure what was on offer. We stumbled into the first restaurant in town, which unfortunately was full of Italian families enjoying their Sunday lunches (note to self: phone ahead next time!), so we carried on walking and pledged to come back and try that place another time.Continue reading

Dorset Apple Cake Recipe with Travelodge Foodies

I love cake! But baking, I’ve never been so good at. Recently Travelodge asked me, as part of their Travelodge Foodies campaign, to cook some regional cuisine from Bournemouth.

I scoured the internet for dishes native to Bournemouth and one of the things that came up was the Dorset Apple Cake. Cake. Decision made.

Like I said, I’m not very good at baking, but the recipe seemed pretty simple and wouldn’t take long to throw together, so I figured I was onto a winner. And I was!Continue reading

Wagamama Trafford Centre – VIP Preview Lunch

Last month, hubby, the little one and I were lucky enough to get an exclusive VIP sneak preview of Wagamama’s largest restaurant, opening at the Trafford Centre. Wagamama is easily one of my favourite places to eat (I still remember my first ever visit to their restaurant in Kensington when they first opened), so I jumped at the chance.

When approaching the restaurant, it looks modern and chic and it’s only when you walk in, that you realise how big it is. It’s a tardis, with 295 seats across two floors, the trademark open kitchen spanning the length of the ground floor and a new feature…you can sit and eat at the kitchen and watch the chefs hard at work.Continue reading
