A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to bag a ticket to Jo's 2nd Sweeteasy event at Hot Numbers. I had heard so many great things from the first event that it was all I could think about all week. It was a real struggle not to get sneak previews and tasters from Jo before the event but I knew it would be worth the wait.

My highlights were the Egg Nog Custard tart and the Rhubarb Crumble Martini which was particularly enjoyable given that the rim of the glass was dipped in crumble so you could drink and eat at the same time, my two favourite pastimes rolled into 1! I'm so glad I managed to go along this time and am eagerly awaiting the announcement for the next.

Keep an eye out on her blog for the announcement of the next, its sure to sell out just as fast as the others.

The last few months have been pretty food heavy in terms of cooking and eating. It seems that since the Eat Cambridge festival sprung up lots of new events have been occurring in and around Cambridge. I don't always take my big camera out with me these days but I do still get a little snap happy on my phone. I just wanted to share some of the things I've been making and eating over the past few months. On a side note, we head to New York & Chicago in just over a week and I couldn't be more excited. I have a big old list of restaurants I want to visit in that time I just hope we can fit them all in. This time around we will be staying in Brooklyn so I'm looking forward to exploring new neighbourhoods. I have just started a google map of the places I want to visit so if you have any other suggestions just let me know in the comments.

Passionfruit 'Snow Egg' at Three Horseshoes in Madingley, quite possibly one of the best desserts I've ever eaten
I have a slight addiction to these peanut & sesame buns at Zhonghua Snacks as well as their pork & kimchi dumplings
I finally made it for brunch at Caravan. This Salt Beef bubble did not disappoint.
A special mention where I didn't manage to get photos is The Pint Shop pop up at Gogs Farm Shop was a meal I won't be forgetting for a while. I really can't wait for them to open up in the summer, you won't be able to keep me away! I am secretly hoping they do another pop up so I can take Tim along.


After missing out on the inaugural Sweeteasy I am really looking forward to Jo's event tomorrow night. 4 cocktail inspired cakes and 3 cake inspired cocktails, whats not to like? You can read more here

Stickybeaks Cafe have some exciting new Demonstration Supper Clubs coming up in the next few months. I have already signed up to the Intro to Sourdough but you can find out more on their facebook page
