A Little Lusciousness Valentine’s Supper Club

I started this blog a year ago, and fairly soon after, I met fellow food blogger Rosie of A Little Lusciousness at a chocolate baking class. We bumped into each other at a few events after that and I learned more about the amazing supper club which she runs, also named A Little Lusciousness. She’s the top rated chef on Grub Club, the leading website that allows you to book tickets for supper clubs and is in the midst of writing her own cookbook inspired by the seasons and surroundings. I’d been wanting to go along to one of her acclaimed supper clubs for so long, and finally had the opportunity to go on Valentine’s weekend with Tim. We’d had a few bad experiences going to big restaurants in London on Valentine’s Day so this seemed like the perfect alternative, plus it was a chance for Tim to pop his supper club cherry 😉 It was hosted in a gorgeous little cafe/restaurant in West London, and we were just salivating over the menu: Sparkling welcome cocktail …

An ‘Around The World’ Cheeseboard with Davidstow

I’m a cheese fanatic. Any regular readers will know this. Given the choice, I could quite easily live on the stuff. I’ve never encountered a cheese I didn’t like and I’m always on the lookout for new brands and types to try. The latest of these was Davidstow who challenged me to create my dream cheeseboard. Well, where to begin with that, considering my dream cheeseboard would be more of a castle, with different levels and rooms?! I had to control myself (for the sake of both my bank account and waistline!), so I went for an ‘around the world’ theme, featuring the following: UK: Davidstow 3 Year Special Reserve Vintage cheddar France: Camembert Spain: Manchego Italy: Mozzarella Greece: Feta I know most cheese connoisseurs will pair cheeses that complement each other, or are perhaps from the same country. However I like the idea of experiencing a range of flavours and textures, from the thickness of the manchego to the softness of the mozzarella, and the richness of the cheddar to the creaminess of the …
