Ok, so it’s been a while since my last post (over 2 months unbelievably!) and I am feeling the foodie withdrawal symptoms.
Summer has been eventful to say the least; such is the rich tapestry that is life. But, I promised you a Part 2 to the Italian Feast and here it is: ta da!

At 20 degrees outside, a cheeky last alfresco dining evening, sauvignon blanc in hand, is definitely what I will be doing this weekend.
For a seafood lover like me, this winning combination of king prawns, chilli and lemon is complimented perfectly by a sprinkling of fennel salt and a mouthwatering fennel salad. The side of herby borlotti beans is melt-in-the-mouth delicious; the cripsy olive and parsley breadcrumbs give it a nice crunch and it is the perfect accompaniment to the king prawn skewers….
