‘There’s no place like a colonial home’

I loved these colonial homes in Washington DC. Each one had it’s own individual personality and funny little quirkyness about it…

Relaxing mid shopping lunch location in Downtown NYC

Like a peaceful oasis in the heart of the bustling city, B-Bar & Grill offered a walled garden like environment to relax and enjoy a light lunch in after a busy morning shopping in Downtown NYC. A semi, outdoor sectioned off area is scattered with garden tables and chairs and lined with hanging baskets and flower beds, a compleat contrast to the surrounding location. Lovely light food and interesting salads…recommended.

NYC

Following my recent holiday to the states I’m excited to share some of the photographs I took using my new Fuji Fine Pix HS30 EXR camera which I treated myself to before I went away! NYC was so hot and the red buildings looked beautiful in the sunshine…

Noma

The pièce de résistance of our weekend away…Lunch at the ever popular Noma.

Just a few of the delights we encountered over a long lunch.

Tucked away in the boat yard of Copenhagen, Noma was voted the number one restaurant in the world again this year. Lucky enough to get a table, we had lunch there on the Saturday afternoon of our weekend away.  The menu was split in two halves, the little canapy starters came out at a rapid pace followed by the larger plates more slowly accompanied by complimentary wines. The attention to detail and delicate presentation of the dishes was superb and everything had a story behind it. From eating the contents of a plant pot with radishes sunk in an edible soil to a light sponge cake that evaporated in your mouth everything was thought out to a new level. Seasonal and foraged ingredients were key to every dish and all carefully prepared upstairs. Every dish was a ‘photo moment’ and I wanted to share my favourite to show how inspiring food can be…
