My favourite place in Scotland has always been Argyll – specifically the chunk surrounding Lochgilphead and Tarbert. For my sister’s […]

Saturdays are just the best ☕️
I have had the Mondayest Monday ever and I ate a leftover slice of pizza microvwaved to cheer myself up. Instead of my soggy pizza with a bite already missing from it, here is a stunning work of art from the pizza magicians at Baffo 🍕
I could really go some pitta breads and a wide range of dips from Baba - I imagine a dream scenario would be one of everything. I loved the beetroot hummas with feta, but I especially love their baba ganoush with pomegranate and mint - it’s sheer indulgence! 👌🏼
Good morning Saturday ☀️ Where is everyone branching today? I’m on a spending ban which is a double act because it’s helping me empty my freezer! While I eat my basic AF toast, I’ll be dreaming of an ice-cold fresh-squeezed orange juice in the west end as I flicked through an exciting menu 🍊💕
Hibiscus & rose panna cotta, charred pineapple, peanuts & condensed milk 🌺 I rarely bother with desserts, but when I do, it’s usually something along the lines of this! Creamy, nutty, refreshing and/or floral. I absolutely love any floral taste in a desert or cocktail, and the hibiscus with the creamy panna cotta was lovely and mild. Delicious!
These popped into my head today and I am really craving them! Delicious garlicky and spiced sweetcorn fritters dunked in tamarind chutney 🌽👌🏼
Ravioli Fritti Carbonara - possibly one of the strangest things I’ve tried in an Italian restaurant! I’m not sure if this is a modern quirk or something commonly eaten in Italy, but I enjoyed it! The filled pasta is deep fried and topped with Parmesan. It reminds me of the Russian ravioli I tried in Cossachok years ago and I’m now wondering if they still serve it!
If in doubt, order the baby naan with Scottish blue cheese and apple & pear chutney. Perfect comfort food with a twist! 😍
Crispy Kekda 🦀 my starter was the soft shell crab with apple & fennel salad, baby samphire, avocado aioli and a wee kilner of coriander and mint paste. This was absolutely gorgeous - especially that paste, which I’m sure has another name, but it was so fully flavoured yet mild enough to not overpower anything. I put a bit of it on almost everything I tried! Delicious herby goodness! The crab was cooked to perfection and the apple in the salad was so gorgeous - I would eat this every day!
