I suppose the idea of calling a restaurant Percy & Founders is that it sounds upmarket, established, classic. A bit like Farrow & Ball, Abercrombie & Fitch, Crabtree & Evelyn. You conjure up a place of tradition, been round for ages, created back in the Victorian era by two geniuses.
I've decided to do my best to "eat kind". Like sexuality believe there is no black and white and that labels aren't really helpful any more. Fluidity is. So I'm dispensing with "vegan"/ "vegetarian"/ "pescetarian" etc. If I want to eat some cheese or yoghurt I will.
My new series Follow Donal started on Food Network UK this week! Here's a behind the scenes vlog from when we filmed the series- a street food tour with my Vietnamese buddy TT!
We know what it's like - you clock in after a long week at work and all you want to do is pick up the phone, dial your local curry-chinese-pizza-thai-turkish takeaway and indulge in some naughty nibbles. RESIST! You can cook incredible dishes for a fraction of the price, triple the flavour and all in the time you're left waiting for the doorbell to ding.
I'd heard great things about The Wild Rabbit and was looking forward to experiencing what they call a 're-invention of the traditional English Inn'. Serving locally sourced and seasonal food in comfortable and cosy surroundings, I knew I was going to be in for a treat over lunch.
Over the past week I've discovered three amazing places to eat in Central London, without spending a fortune. The key to all of them - they all serve street food and are great options as the sun starts to make a regular appearance.
Pearl barley is something I always have in the cupboard but rarely use. It'll be making regular appearances from now on because I loved the taste and texture in this salad.
Keen to put the 'grr' into great food, Jamie is working alongside the Moshi Monsters to encourage children to get into the kitchen. We firmly believe that the more children learn about what they are eating, the healthier they will be.
Today's topic is not about the low carb diet, weight watchers or the 5:2 diet. All these diets and many more work and they are popular within those seeking quick results. But they have something in common; they are based on prohibiting certain healthy foods or limiting the daily calorie intake.
if you are coeliac, gluten-intolerant and want to treat your family, I really recommend these bars which are sticky, delicious and will go down well with any age!
Renowned for classic, seasonal dishes, Phil is hosting a restaurant at Ascot for five days during the iconic British race meeting. He's in good company - Raymond Blanc, Michael Caines and Angela Hartnett will be there too.
Jack by the Hedge may be described as a groupie; find one plant and it is probably the start of a lengthy border.Reference to Jack (Jill gets an occasional look in) in folklore means common, its inclusive, there for everyman (or woman). Jack by the Hedge is well named.
This award-winning restaurant (it can boast a Michelin Bib for 2015 along with other Irish food awards) serves some of the best fish from the south coast of Ireland, freshly landed in this fishing town which is also known as the 'gourmet capital of Ireland'.
I like the flavour combination of the raspberries with the rhubarb, though of course you can mix and match using whatever you have handy, or be a purist and just stick to rhubarb alone (no pun intended).
I travel all over the world for my job, searching out the best places to eat in far-flung destinations, and I tend to ignore what's on my doorstep. I was therefore intrigued to hear that Essex has a higher GDP than Belgium and so, on a rainy saturday morning, I set out to find out what's on offer.
My charity Send a Cow, is currently one of a number signed up to Global Poverty Project's Live Below the Line campaign. It encourages people to live for five days on what the world's poorest survive on for a lifetime. In the UK that means eating and drinking on £1 a day.
