Recipe: Fresh Pappardelle in Tomato, Chilli, Bacon, Parmesan & Herb sauce

Making fresh pasta can be a time consuming process, but it’s well worth the effort and the more you make it, the faster you will get. A little elbow grease gives you flavourful pasta with more bite than the dried supermarket

Restaurant Review: Roscioli, Rome

Roscioli is a salumeria-cum bakery-cum cheese shop-cum deli-cum restaurant that excels in every category (much like that overachieving student from your high school class). But excellence come at a price. Both the restaurant and the bakery sit unassumingly along a

Café Review: Vivi Bistrot, Rome

Pamphili park in Rome is a relaxing haven to wander around, even as the weather is cooling down. The dense treetop canopy and winding paths provide a little escape from the chaos of central Rome. Whats more, after a morning

Restaurant Review: La Sagra del Vino, Rome

La Sagra del Vino was my first experience of traditional Roman trattoria-style dining. I was taken there by my Roman housemate and connoisseur of Rome’s best eateries. A meal out with him never disappointed. La Sagra del Vino is a family-run restaurant

Restaurant Review: Alle Fratte di Trastevere, Rome

Trastevere is a hub for great food, from pizza joints, bakeries and a fair few family-run trattorias. Alle Fratte di Trastevere is, in my opinion, one of the best in this vibrant bubble in Rome. Here, you can find true Roman cuisine, as

Cafe Review: Carre Bleu, Nice

After a day at the beach in Cagnes sur Mer, I often head to Carré Bleu for dinner. The food is exquisite and the view of the sun setting over the sea, unbeatable. Carré Bleu reaps the benefits of being on the seafront, serving a
