Tantalising Taste of Forbidden Rice: Black Rice Is Beautiful

I love pottering around Asian (well make that all) supermarkets and seeing what new foods to play with I can find.  One of my latest discoveries has been black rice, also known as Forbidden Rice. Doesn’t calling it forbidden instantly make it more tantalising? In ancient times, it was cultivated only for the Emperor in China and commoners were banned from eating it hence the … Continue reading Tantalising Taste of Forbidden Rice: Black Rice Is Beautiful

Yummy Healthy Eating: Recipe For Spinach & Pistachio Pilaf Peppers (vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free)

I’ve written before of my love of Lewisham market for the abundance of cheap, great quality fruit and veg there.

New London Restaurant: 42°Raw ~ Please Sir Can I Have Some Raw?

Is raw food a bonafide thing now in London? I ask because The Royal Academy’s newish restaurant, called 42° Raw, has an entirely raw food, vegan menu with no sugar, gluten or dairy. Oh and nothing cooked over 42°C. That seems pretty bold or do they just know their clientele really well?….Vogue House is just a Pilate stretch away after all. The couple of times … Continue reading New London Restaurant: 42°Raw ~ Please Sir Can I Have Some Raw?
