This has become one of my favourite places to dine in Paris. Great Italian food at the * Michelin L’Orangerie, simple, robust dishes in generous portions. They share the same wine list as the *** Michelin Le Cinq, including more Italian options of course. The menu is heavy on plant-based and seafood – giving vegetarians […]

This story for the SCMP was a joy to put together as it includes all my favourite things – food, history and culture. You can read the piece here. Macanese cuisine has so many similarities to Singapore’s Eurasian food, along with Peranakan food, thanks to the bustling trade routes and influences from Portugal and its […]

I love going back to Beijing, it always feels like my second home. Having spent 5 years living there, and the years my friends and I call “the years we grew into adults”. There, I made life long friends – many who now live across the globe, but we always remained in touch. It’s also […]

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’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 […]
