The Festival of Lights

As a millennial Jew, it’s hard not to think of Hanukkah without imagining Ross Gellar dressed up as the holiday armadillo trying to teach his son Ben about his Jewish heritage and the Festival of Lights. It got me to wondering, how many people out there really think that Superman did fly all the Jews out of […]

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; […]

Fun in the Sun

Ginseng & Thyme on Tour It probably won’t come as much of a surprise to know that G&T have recently been on holiday. To our loyal followers on social media we apologise for the envy-inducing snaps, and to our loved ones for the endless moaning about how awful it is to be back in the […]

Pastry Masterclass

We aren’t sure if it’s the recent revival of The Great British Bake Off or the fact that autumn is creeping in, but as of late we’ve caught the baking bug. The office has been budding with brownies and friends have been force-fed shortbread, cupcakes and muffins alike. We quickly realised that it isn’t something […]

Cocktail O’Clock

Three classic cocktails just in time for the Bank Holiday We LOVE cocktails. Our readers may know by now that we have our very own self titled cocktail courtesy of The Pen & Pencil in the Northern Quarter, but there really isn’t anything like a classic. G will almost always order a classic mojito or […]

Salad Fingers

Feeling fresh and healthy with summer salads As another miserable August drags on, we cannot help but wonder what happened to summer. Did it get lost on the way over this year? God forbid the same thing happening to Santa Claus this winter (yes, we are thinking about Christmas already.) It is safe to say […]
