Alice and I are cooking like mad women for our Brighton Bonanza; it's a dream to chase ingredients, experiment with recipes and create our restaurant. The opening night is Wednesday, exactly 24 hours away.
I spent the day taking photos with one of my oldest friends Tori. She is an inspiration to me & her blog, Wellies & Vogue is one of the most beautiful I've seen.
She shot a pumpkin cake that I'd spent the morning making; a yummy mixture of banana, pumpkin and maple. It could double as a pudding if doused in maple syrup. Or maybe served with a spoonful of ice cream.
It's been a buzzy couple of weeks. I spent the week as a commuter; embracing early starts, reading novels on the train and overpriced coffee's whilst working for the food team at Delicious magazine. It was as lovely as any week will be, I'm sure.
This week is has begun my pop up preparation. First stop is Baclava.
Some exciting news - The Hart & Fuggle (That's one of my oldest friends Alice Hart and me)are popping up again. For the first time we have moved away from London and rested on Brighton beach, nestling inside one of the old arches. Our hosts are the amazing Lucky Beach - no doubt they will teach us a thing or two about cooking a proper burger (www.luckybeach.co.uk).
This will be a true feast; a generous tide of delicious plates for sharing, rather than a traditional, 3-course supper.
Just 3 nights at the end of October, 30 covers, 1 beach.
