Street feasting at London’s Dalston Yard

It’s a balmy 86 °F/30 °C here in Boston today.  While it feels like summer, the color on the trees tell a different story.  Shades of yellow and red now adorn the trees, a telltale sign that autumn is quickly approaching.  I won’t complain though because I do miss the New England fall foliage, there’s nothing quite like…

Rail travel & wine routes of France

Just as I was beginning to look into planning an adventure for a semi big birthday next year I received an invitation to a wine tasting event hosted by Voyages-SNCF (previously Rail Europe).  Located in Piccadilly, Voyages-SNCF is the rail expert in European train travel.  For the event they brought in wine experts, Taste of the Grape,…

London ramen chronicles: Tonkotsu in Soho

When it comes to ramen it’s best to pull your hair back, tilt forward and start slurping… loudly.  Even better, go solo to avoid awkwardness about breaking the western protocol for good table manners or make polite conversation mid slurp.

Pizza Rossa :: fueling City workers one slice at a time

Photo essay: the colors of Fera at Claridge’s

A cacao-inspired brunch at Rabot 1745

It was 10:30 am on a Saturday morning.  There was a thickening crowd of people in Borough Market as I made my way to Rabot 1745, a restaurant with a cacao-centric menu, for 10:45 am reservations.  The food stalls were open and alive with energy while some of the restaurants were slowly awakening.  Elliot’s Cafe, one of my favorite…

On food & travel photography: workshops with Donal Skehan & Marte-Marie Forsberg

Food and travel photography has grown from a passive interest of mine to undeniable passion to a full time job in the last two and a half years.  Within this time span I attended five photography related workshops, mostly food-related, most of which were held at the Food Blogger Connect (FBC) annual conferences in London.  And in each…
