Finnish that falafel

Thank you to our regular contributor Marie for this post. After a 3 year hiatus, it was time to try flying again with the offer of a berth and company in Helsinki. Gatwick was reputed to be like hell on a bad day but the reality was logistically fine. But I’d forgotten what a humongous... Continue Reading →

Seaside falafel

You must have noticed the deafening falafel related silence over the last year, dear readers. The truth is, my baby hates falafel (and hummus). I wasn't able to eat anything chickpea related for my entire pregnancy, or anything containing garlic or spices. In fact, I lived almost entirely off potato waffles and vegan sausage rolls....

Dog days and outside falafel

A guest review by anonymous Since owning a dog, a lockdown puppy who is now nearly two, life requires significantly more planning. And by life I include falafel eating. So a weekend involving a beach walk, nosing around a few junk shops, examining fascinatingly historic artefacts in a local museum.. and dropping into a cafe... Continue Reading →

New year, new falafel

Let’s be honest - it’s been tough. Any festive plans foolish enough to be made were dashed by the virus. The only way to live seems to be spontaneously, apart from the daily lateral flow tests which are now a fixed routine ( when available). So as we headed into New Year’s Eve (anxious and...

HOMEBREW FALAFEL(NUTMEG FORMULA)

Many thanks to Laura for this guest post. "Everyday is like Sunday." So sang Morrissey, and for many of us a fitting epitaph for lockdown. But what does that have to do with falafel I hear you cry? Well, it may feel like a year of Sundays but it isn't healthy to eat Sunday Roast... Continue Reading →

Do crisps count?

Many thanks to miss j. for this post! I had a very posh day out with my Latin and Ancient history class to Lydney Park, a 17th Century country estate, which is home to a Roman temple and bath. After exploring the grounds we paid a visit to the tea room. An array of spectacular... Continue Reading →

It’s a…baby

Yep, that's right, my rapidly expanding waistline wasn't entirely due to my excessive falafel consumption in recent months. Every time I go for a check or scan, I am mildly surprised that my bump does, in fact, contain a human baby, and not a large ball of falafel (as previously suspected). As a slightly paranoid...

I’m not basic

I hate to be so basic but I'm partial to chain restaurants. The predictability suits my anxious nature. I had come to Gloucester for some training and as lunch approached I googled for a trusty old Pret. But to my dismay I was informed that the nearest Pret was in Cheltenham. How do people of...
