Talking Italian...

Posted by Janice Bruce-Brand on Saturday, November 27, 2010, In : RESTAURANTS 

We love Italian food.  Actually, we love any food, but a couple of weeks ago we were in the mood for some Italian, so we popped across the river to Jamie's Italian at Canary Wharf for a spot of lunch. 

We arrived just after 1pm and the place was packed.  By the looks of things, Jamie's has become a daily fix for hundreds of corporate junkies.  We were lucky enough to get a table straight away, which is a good thing, because I was starving (and I get real grumpy when I'm hungry...) 

Although the...

Palate Pleasing Prague...

Posted by Janice Bruce-Brand on Sunday, November 21, 2010, In : RESTAURANTS 

 

I just love birthdays - and better yet, I love surprises!  Richard surprised me for my birthday in October and whisked me off to Prague for a jam-packed weekend of fun, food, culture and architecture...


I last explored the myriad of Prague's twisted streets back in 1998 - it was truly wonderful going back again and seeing how much has changed, and just how much still remains the same.  Richard and I both agree that the city is much "neater" today as many of the old buildings that were in a te...

Lazy Sunday Brunch at The Table

Posted by Janice Bruce-Brand on Wednesday, November 10, 2010, In : RESTAURANTS 

There is nothing better than a lazy Sunday morning lie-in, followed by a satisfying late breakfast/ early lunch - commonly known as brunch!  Have you ever wondered what you call the "blending" of two words, i.e. motor + hotel = motel, or my favourite chuckle + snort = chortle.  Well, the linguistic term for the above is portmanteau. (English lesson over, lets get to the grub...)

We have found a fabulous little spot to relax while enjoying a spectacular brunch - "The Table" is just a hop, skip ...

Simply di-vine Sunday Lunch

Posted by Janice on Thursday, September 30, 2010, In : RESTAURANTS 

One fine Sunday morning, together with my inlaws and husband, we ventured out of London and into the picturesque countryside, our destination: The Vineyard Hotel at Stockcross, near Newbury in Berkshire.  Their website promised a "Gastronomic affair" and what a fine affair it was!  The welcome we received upon arrival was warm and inviting and the service remained exceptional from the Apéritifs right through to the Petit fours, it was faultless.

To start with Richard had the salmon sushi - th...

Just Married & Living the good life in London


Janice Bruce-Brand Hi, I'm Janice. I am not a chef, and I am not a photographer - but I love cooking, eating and taking photographs. My mother is a great cook and this is probably where my love for food began. A few years ago, she opened up her own little restaurant in the quaint farming hamlet where I spent roughly 20 years of my youth! By creating this blog, I hope to share with you my curiosity for just about everything in life that relates to food. Those who know me are aware of just how much I love to document my trips and travels. I hope you'll join me for the ride... I promise to keep you suitably entertained (and perhaps even drooling at times!)
