Travelling to the Otago Peninsula on New Zealand’s South Island should be on everyone’s travel list. There’s plenty to do: taking in nature, outdoor adventures and the local dining scene to touring local sights. Naturally, for many, food plays an important part in the trip. Check out these options of casual and upscale restaurants, fancy […]

A lovely way to start at Jaan Singapore with this beetroot meringue, smoked eel, Devonshire cheddar cheese and buckwheat pancake, fish and chips, artichoke roll. We finally got to check out one of the best of British cooking in Singapore at Jaan restaurant. The menu at Jaan by Kirk Westaway, a one Michelin-starred restaurant and #32 on […]

We’ve read and heard all about the legend that is Signor Franco Pepe, so we took the opportunity to visit his restaurant in April when we were in Naples for a friend’s wedding. I don’t particularly like Kytaly in Hong Kong, I find the dough really dense and it always leaves me feeling worse for […]

I contributed to this month’s July 2019 Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia’s Food Issue on where we eat in Hong Kong. It is by no means limited to this list, but I had to cramp everything into 4 full pages with a balance of local, western and fine dining spots. There are many other favourites, […]

Of the gastronomic experiences in Sweden and Denmark, Noma, unfortunately, was my least favourite. I just didn’t get the hype around the food nor the brand it has built with a loyal following. More images here. It wasn’t a dining experience I was used to – you’re not allowed to go to the toilet as […]

My piece for SCMP after my last Scandinavia gastronomy trip in January eating in Sweden and Denmark, featuring two Michelin stars Faviken that sadly closes the end of the year and three Michelin stars Geranium. Noma was my least favourite of the restaurants I visited and it certainly didn’t live up to its hype. I […]

I am a creature of habit and one of those people eating the same favourite dish at restaurants that I frequent regularly, and usually in the same seat.  Venturing out of my comfort zone takes a fair bit of effort and this January, one of my best friends planned her birthday trip to hit several […]

I LOVED Lisbon and often think about how nice it would be to have a summer house there, or to dream of retirement where you can get amazing food, drinks, culture,art and design without breaking the bank. My travel story on Lisbon for Singapore’s national broadsheet The Straits Times. It’s behind a paywall, so text below. […]

I haven’t been back to Italy since I left in 2006, then with a heavy heart and began a new chapter in life in Beijing. I forgot how much I miss the food, the fresh coffee and the beautiful produce and friendly wildly gesturing people. We ate wild caught sustainable seafood daily, and it was […]
