Eat Falafel at Home. Control the Hunger. Save Money.

Many thanks to guest reviewer James Brown for this post! Britain in 2020*: it’s like a jungle out there. You’re trying to keep your distance but everyone around you is having street parties, beach parties, clapping manically on their doorsteps,or testing their eyesight in popular tourist destinations. Sure, you could get takeaway but isn’t it... Continue Reading →

Always be prepared

'Always be prepared', that's my motto. So why wasn't I? It was a thought I'd come back to again and again over the lockdown period. Why didn't I prepare? When Covid 19 hit I had no frozen falafel in the freezer, no dried chickpeas, a few scant tins which were to soon run out. I... Continue Reading →

Falafel firsts

Tis a proud day for any parent when their little ones takes their first... Bite of falafel. I'd been waiting impatiently for our baby to be ready to eat solid food and decided that on his 6 month birthday we would give him his first foray into the world of fried chickpeas. I was nervous....

I will summarise here the rest of the years (mainly) disappointing falafel. My trip to Copenhagen for my brother's wedding... Continue Reading →

A night of falafel, disappointment and loss

  Thanks to guest contributer 'Old father Thames' for this post (I know, how strange). We were given tickets to see Eddie Izzard at the Palladium. I’m not his greatest fan, but I selflessly agreed to attend as my wife likes him and we’ve seen his show many times over the years. Also, it was... Continue Reading →

Born in the NHS

You can tell that austerity has hit hospitals hard. There was a distinct lack of falafel on offer at the canteen and café. I had to get my husband to run out to a shop to bring my me post birth falafel and houmous. What a disgrace, brexit couldn't come soon enough. Soon all that... Continue Reading →
