Date night

My boyfriend and i make a conscious effort to have a date night once every couple of weeks. It usually involves my 2 favourite things… food and wine! This week we tried the restaurant dated number 15 on Cardiff’s trip advisor “The Purple Poppadom“.

Only a slight door which is easily missed

Lead into a very bright but suave Indian restaurant. I knew as we entered this wasn’t going to be any Indian restaurant as I checked their wine list!

Digging in I had Tandoori King Prawns – A plated trio of tandoori king prawns scented with Bengal kasundi mustard and rolled in spices, served with prawn risotto and ‘achari’ delicately home-pickled prawns… Fabulous

For dessert a Chocomosa Anand which was Chef’s signature dessert of a light crispy pastry parcel filled with a melted Belgian chocolate ganache, served with homemade vanilla ice cream. And I opted for an Irish coffee.

Home sweet home

When a daddy turned 59 at the end of August, a visit back home was required. I woke up to a glorious hazy summers day. So, decided to take the family to one of our favourite spots growing up. It’s called Trigate bridge and is an undiscovered beautiful part of the world. I packed my bag full of Waitrose picnic goodies and John Lewis picnic blanket and a few bottles of Suffolk Aspalls cider and crisp Italian Prosecco!

We settled down to have fresh French stick, soft Brie and red onion chutney, a selection of Italian meats and elderflower Bellini’s.
