Foodie Friday

Yesterday I got to try some rather interesting dishes at the cook-off for the upcoming new menu for work. One of the more unusual ones, but which I’ve decided I quite like, is Spaghetti Fritti. It’s basically deep fried spaghetti but the one we have has ricotta & parmesan in it so when you eat it warm it’s all oozy & cheesy.. delicious! It’s traditionally served with a tomato sauce & we drizzled lemon juice over it too. It’s definitely a great snack!




I’ve found a couple of different recipes for you if you fancy making it at home..

We also got to try Game Ragu (hare, rabbit, venison, boar & pigeon!!!!), Chicken Liver Tortellini, the most incredible Truffled Turkey Milanese… it was a lot of rich food to be trying at 9am!


Foodie Friday

I work in an Italian restaurant. It’s a pretty good place to practise taking food photographs!

It’s also the place that is going to be holding me hostage until Monday morning… working tonight & then two doubles over the weekend. Looooooooooooooooooooong!

Anyhow, whilst on the boat we did not have scrummy Italian to sustain us, so we had dinner out Wednesday night & last night. 

Wednesday evenings meals at the George & Dragon in Sutton Courtenay. DB had the burger & I had pork belly with black pudding. Homemade, both less than a tenner & delicious! If you’re ever in the area this pub is definitely worth a stop!

Yesterday’s standard pub fare at The King’s Arms at the Sandford Lock.

Pictures of our boating adventure will be posted up at some point over the weekend… keep your eyes peeled!
