Burns Night

When T was little, her Mum and Dad used to tell her that January was Haggis season. On the 25th of the month, her dad would go out and shoot one for Burns Night supper. They are said to be small rabbit-sized creatures, with bright red hair and one leg shorter than the other (so […]

Cooking in the Danger Zone: Part I

Although we are sad to wave goodbye to Dinner Party Skills, the New Year is bringing us new beginnings in more ways than one. But here we are, a year older, a year wiser (ish) and hopefully a little more refined. Along with that vein, we are excited to kick off this year with something […]

Reflection of 2017

So much has happened in this past year. Not only have G&T endeavoured on this fantastic blogging journey together, but we have also seen happiness, sadness and a good helping of change. The idea of starting out on a new year of our project fills us with excitement, but before we dive into 2018 and […]

Bah Bloody Humbug

December is here and so is our festive extravaganza. As our readers will already know, and as reiterated last week with the Hanukkah post, G&T come from different backgrounds, one Jewish, one loosely Christian at best.

Fondue-you-really-love me?

Cheese. Honestly, what is better than cheese? Especially melted cheese. Nothing says ‘Food Porn’ more than soft, stringy, melty cheese dripping all over the place. It is sensual, and that’s a fact. The only issue is, it isn’t very good for you, and we aren’t talking about the old wives tale about it giving you […]

Side Dish: Winter Hibernation

It is safe to say that it is officially freezing. It has been -1C three mornings on the trot this week, and let’s not even mention the lack of sunlight. It is times like these when we just want to curl up on the sofa and pretend that nothing exists. Unfortunately, we are not bears; […]

‘Oh Shit, the Vegans are Back’

After the success of our last vegan post, we felt the itch to take this topic on again. I know, we can’t believe it either. We are sorry to disappoint, but we haven’t converted to veganism just yet, although there was a close call with G a few weeks back… We aren’t here to start […]

Side Dish: Ten things we love about autumn​

It seems pretty obvious when looking at our previous posts from this month to that we both love autumn. Our social media feeds have been swimming in copper tones, and the cosy jumpers have been on for four weeks straight, whatever the weather. It is a beautiful time to be alive, and if you need […]
