I had some left over pastry and organic apples so i made mini apple pie bites. Perfect on a rainy english afternoon with some vanilla ice-cream or custard.
Meat Liquor Brighton. Green chilli cheeseburger, dirty chicken burger and deep fried pickles! not for the faint hearted, some serious spice. Chicken was beautifully battered (american style) and the meal made for some uber weekend burger indulgence.

I know there are a thousand different theories of how to make the perfect poached egg but the real trick is to make sure the egg is as fresh as possible. These eggs were collected the same day that they were layed. All that was required was a deep pan of simmering water and voila! : the perfect poached egg. On top of good quality smoked salmon and buttered vogel bread with a dollop of hollandaise to finish. My favourite brunch of all time!
Chinese style 🍜
Chinese in Camberwell London: Silk Road. Authentic chinese laced with dried chillies! We had dumplings with a vinegar dipping sauce and a large bowl of chicken in broth to share. Chicken was still on the bone allowing the full flavours to penetrate the broth. We got so caught up in eating that i forgot to take a photo, so this is the after shot of our cheap and cheerful chinese meal in Camberwell.
