For the last long weekend of 2016, we've been lucky enough to take part in Jamie Oliver & Alex James' The Big Feastival, situated in the quaint and serene Cotswolds. Here I walk you through some of the highlights of this fantastic event though I am sure this won't do the festival justice - it really was excellent from start to finish!
22:26pm: The day is over and the food was had. On the whole, I've had a successful first day of the meat free challenge which I've imposed upon myself.
Three weeks ago, you may or may not have seen me Instagram-happy whilst in Southampton with the amazing Breakfast Club. It was the most refreshing weekend away, filled with lots of laughs, banter, good weather, and of course amazing food. It started off with meeting one of the girls for lunch in London for roti. Upon getting to Southampton we wandered a little bit, and walked over to our friends' to prepare for B's Burpee party! It was an interesting experience because I've never really helped with a full vegetarian spread before. Nevertheless, it was an incredibly fun experience, and a true team effort!!! Our spread was made up of two types of potato wedges, a green salad with two types of dressing, guacamole, a courgette lasagne, and a veggie moussaka. I'll be sharing the recipes for the salad and the potato wedges - the moussaka and lasagne may eventually land on the blog, if the other Academicooks (Hi B and Shrommie!) were happy to share their secret recipes :-)
Being Filipino, one of my favourite desserts has to be crème caramel (or leche flan as we call it back home). A few years ago one of my aunts gave me a recipe for it, which I've tried once. Why I never tried again, I cannot remember.
