Two Meal Ribs

2 Apr 2011

Living in London often means a continuous supply of exciting things to see and do. For me, these can mostly involve events of a culinary nature. If you’ll forgive me for using a tired, old phrase, in the face of this “age of austerity”, enticing new restaurants are opening left, right and centre. This temptation can be harsh on the pocket, so it’s good to occasionally attempt to address the balance between dining out and in.

The philosophy of balance can also be applied to what you cook when dining in. Here are a couple of meals which can be made inexpensively with ribs, mainly because the same ribs are used in both dishes. They provide flavour to the first dish, a simple soup and eaten in the more indulgent second dish. Both recipes comfortably serve 2, and ingredients are approximated, so feel free to adjust to your liking. (more…)

Holy Burninations Byron!

I’m generally pretty forgiving when it comes to food, focussing on the good and sweeping the not-so-good under the carpet.  However there is the odd occasion when I come across a disappointing food experience.  Normally I would just forget about it and move on, but having started this food blog I suppose I should properly represent all experiences.  It’s only fair.

While suffering from a combination of jet lag and iron depletion at work and feeling like I was on the verge of passing out, I thought it would be a good opportunity to treat myself to a take away and finally try Byron for one of their burgers.  I’d heard many a good thing about Byron on the blogosphere so I was quite excited about my lunch.

The Classic Burger... so far so good
