Triple Coconut Cream Pie

Monday night involved a lot of eye rolling induced by amazing food and it all happened thirty eight floors above London as the rain lashed at the windows and the golden tree swayed in the wind at Sushi Samba. After excitedly waiting three weeks for our booking on a Monday of all days to roll…

Raw Coconut Snowballs

As the sun sets at only quarter to four on the second to last Thursday before Christmas break the next six working days will be as hectic here in London as I try to find imaginary time to fit last minute very important meetings into the diary. It is as though a sand timer is…
