M is for Mexico
Yes, well a trip to Mexico would be ideal but a cheaper alternative would be to get the new book from Thomasina Miles. I went to a supper club, Dine at the Manor that was based on this book and now it’s well and truly on my list for this year.
If you are looking for a trip to Mexico, would recommend Excellence Riviera Cancun.
Since the start of the month when my saucy project kicked off most of my spare time has been spent perfecting the recipe.
So far, there has been sauce variations playing around with chillies used, sauce texture and the very important sweet to hot ratio.
F is for Fera
Simon Rogan’s restaurant Fera at Claridge’s was one of my most enjoyable restaurants visits this year. For this reason, it’s at the top of my list for anyone that’s looking to buy a foodie an extra special Christmas treat.
Fera is the perfect mix of glorious art deco and nature. The season and availability of ingredients, (many of which are grown on Simon’s farm in the Lake District) are the driving forces behind the dishes on the menu.
