Quorn-ish Pasty?

Quorn* with Ginsters have recently brought out a couple of new vegan pasties. For about 15 years I have found myself buying those newsagent plastic packaged samosas when out and about and stuck for something to eat. These days, you have a lot more choice when in a supermarket but there is still a distinct... Continue Reading →

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 →

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....

Falafel in the time of corona virus

By anonymous. N. B this was written BEFORE the outbreak in Spain and subsequent lock down in all European countries. Stay tuned for quarantine falafel updates next week. After yet another sodden, freezing and windy week in London (storms Ciara, Dennis and Jorge had visited) combined with toilet-paper hoarding Coronavirus mass panic, I boarded an...

All you can eat falafel

'I never thought I'd say it, but they give you far too much falafel' my friend uttered sadly, looking at his still half full plate. The rest of us nodded grimly, fixated on finishing our portions. None of us could bear the thought of leaving falafel or other mezze on our plates, unfinished. The waste... Continue Reading →

A different EU deal, a different falafel

Thanks to our guest contributer this week!   Leaving the UK just as the Supreme Court’s Lady Hale did her spectacular mic drop might have put a pause on my EU/Brexit/ Election intake - but as my destination was Zurich in Switzerland, well, not so much. It’s all got a bit nasty with the EU... Continue Reading →

Falafel in strange places

    So we moved house, just in time to welcome our new arrival into the world. If he ever appears that is, he seems to enjoy being wedged in between my ribs and lungs whilst simultaneously pressing on my bladder too much to ever want to leave.  He's like an enormous octopus, punching and...

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...

Turkish Delights

Thanks to regular contributor Marie @planteatingposts for this review. The Turkish restaurants in North London are a strange and wonderous thing. Strange because no matter the day or hour they are rammed and busy. Even if every other restaurant along Green Lanes is totally empty, there is always a jammed happy crowd in every one...
