When Nonna pops over with a giant panettone but it has bits of dried fruit in it and your boyfriend won't eat it... yes I've nearly eaten the whole thing myself but it has taken over a week #restrained! ๐Ÿฐ I didn't think I really liked panettone but turns out I really really do. It's not cake but nor is it simply a sweet bread not the same as brioche. Or maybe it is... I suddenly feel very ignorant about these things. Perhaps we need a taste-off. Next time I visit @chateaudelasalle I'll bring an Italian panettone and also buy a French brioche and we can compare. Ah it's a hard life! .๐Ÿž .๐Ÿฐ .๐Ÿฎ #panettone #italia #italy #bread #cake #mysterious #whatareyou #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #foodphotography #nonna #grazie #lifeofafoodie #winterfat #extralayers #staywarm #keepcosy #winter #sweettreats #teatime #getinmyface at Origgio

We arrived in Lyon very early in the morning so of course all regular eating patterns were out the window. By about 10am we had made it out of the airport and into the centre of the city, to explore. We came across this little food market and I opted for a little cheese, olive and prosciutto loaf. Oh my dog it was gooood! Appropriately moist, salty and cheesy, with no individual element overpowering the others. Morning snack for the win! .๐Ÿง€ .๐Ÿฅ“ .๐Ÿฅ– #bread #loaf #cheese #olive #bacon #oliveloaf #prosciutto #lyon #france #streetfood #market #foodmarket #french #frenchmarket #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #snack #morningsnack #earlyflight #foodcravings #munchies #thetaleofateaspoon at Lyon, France

Banana and chocolate protein powder shake. Added a teaspoon of honey and the biscuit was really just for decoration as nothing healthy about that haha! Love the chocolate colour against the gold coaster. It's all in the presentation, right? Always looking for breakfast shake ideas - I'd live to hear what your fav is. .๐Ÿซ .๐Ÿผ .๐ŸŒ #shake #chocolateshake #chocolateandbanana #chocolateprotein #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #biscuit #heatlthy #happy #goodlife #health #banana #coaster #gold #goldcoaster #presentation #breakfast #breakfastshake #sexy #stylish #foodstyling #getinmybelly #thetaleofateaspoon

One of three trays of parmigiana. Well when you got to feed 20+ people you can't be shy! This is a throwback moment to when All our friends and family came over to Tuscany with us to celebrate our joint birthday... even though mines not until next week. So much love. So much food! .๐Ÿ… .๐Ÿ† .๐Ÿง€ #foodphotography #parmigiana #italianfood #italy #italia #tuscany #toscano #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #homemade #buffet #feedingthe5000 #aubergine #eggplant #melanzane #mozzerella #tomato #pasata #pomodoro #throwback #family #friends #birthday #weekend

Can we please just talk about how much I love pumpkin, truffle and ravioli all as separate elements. When I discovered them all together in one dish. Oh. My. Nom!!!! So so good. Worst thing was this was the night before a wedding and I'd been dieting to lol good in my rather figure hugging dress... risk it? Hell yes I did! Any regrets... not when there's pumpkin and truffle involved. Also helped a friend (The bride!) finish her "side" of pizza. In for a penny and all that! .๐ŸŽƒ .๐Ÿท .๐Ÿ #foodphotography #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #pumpkin #truffle #blacktruffle #ravioli #pasta #italy #italia #zucca #weddingparty #nightbefore #wedding #dietover #endofdiet #cheatday #platesofinstagram #instaplates #italianfood #bigday #fulltummy #happytummy #breathein #getinthatdress at Pesaro

๐ŸŽถParsley, sage, rosemary and thyme ๐ŸŽถThe last of our sweet red onions bought on the roadside in Calabria and some sage cut from our garden, drying for use in the winter. Simple gifts from nature and yet so so beautiful. Music, food, shelter and a group of friends to share it with; I chose the good life :) .๐Ÿ… .๐ŸŒฝ .๐ŸŒถ #onions #redonions #calabrianredonions #calabrianfood #italy #italia #sage #herbs #dryingherbs #yellowwall #yellow #red #green #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #foodphotography #home #simple #simplelife #goodlife #mothernature #sustainable #sustainableliving #plasticfree #homegrown at Lombardy

Oysters? Love em or hate em? The myth is that you must swallow them while letting the slimy salty yuck just go down your gullet. NO! Do as your mother taught you; Chee your food. With a few simple chews the oyster takes on a n entirely new form of "meaty" deliciousness. As long as they have been properly cleaned of any shell bits and you've squeezed some fresh lemon juice over them, you're in for a real treat. .๐Ÿฆ€ .๐Ÿ  .๐Ÿ‹ #oysters #marmite #loveorhate #dubrovnik #croatia #seafood #seaside #fresh #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #foodphotography #oystersonice #oystersofinstagram #plate #foodporn #thetaleofateaspoon

I love dessert to be rich and indulgent, hitting the bitter and sweet, hot and cold notes all at once. I also love it when it's not too big! Let's be honest I'm going to eat what's put in front of me and after a tasty bread basket and delicious main course, I don't need a mountain of pudding to leave me feeling overly stuffed. This chocolate fondant with vanilla ice cream and wild berry sauce, from @tavernaotto, perfectly hit the spot. .๐Ÿซ .๐Ÿฆ .๐Ÿ’ #dubrovnik #dubrovnikcroatia #eatingout #tavernaotto #chocolate #chocolatefondant #chocolatepudding #vanilla #icecream #wildberries #holiday #nightout #treat #treatyourself #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #delicious #dockside #docksidedining #sea #summer #fun #thetaleofateaspoon at Taverna Otto

With so much great food to choose from in Dubrovnik I insisted we dress up and find somewhere elegant and of course delicious to eat one evening. @tavernaotto has a gorgeous outside terrace where we were presented with a simple yet enticing menu of meat and fresh local fish options. This sea bass fillet with fava beans, fennel, young potatoes, dried cherry tomatoes and caramelised red onion was incredible. See next pic for pudding! .๐ŸŸ .๐Ÿ… .๐Ÿฅ” #tavernaotto #dubrovnik #dubrovnikcroatia #croatianfood #eatingout #dockside #docksiderestaurant #freshfish #seabass #favabeans #fennel #cherrytomatoes #potatoes #newpotatoes #caramalised #redonions #nightout #dressup #menu #delicious # #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour at Taverna Otto

If you go to Dubrovnik lots of where to eat guides will recommend Barba and rave about the octopus burger. It's ok but nothing to write home about. It's cheap... compared with other options but still from what I remember around โ‚ฌ10 just for a burger which isn't cheap... you pay less for a @burgerbeartom, in London which is probably the best burger in the world #justsaying. So yeah, go here for something a bit different but lower your expectations if you want to be impressed. .๐Ÿ” .๐Ÿฆ‘ .๐Ÿบ #burger #octopus #octopusburger #barba #barbadubrovnik #burgers #wheretoeat #croatia #dubrovnik #dubrovnikcroatia #tourist #travel #instatravel #adventures #backpacker #new #places #seetheworld #gourmetburger #gourmetburgers #thetaleofateaspoon at Barba

After seriously stunning first and main courses and immaculate service, the dessert was the only minor let down. Very pretty but lacked a sense of togetherness. Ok so yes it was a deconstructed cheesecake but the pastry case was brittle and the fruit tart and the cream element felt lonely. I'd recommend reconstructing this little pud and producing something that looks just as beautiful but feels unified and more gentle in the mouth. .๐Ÿง€ .๐Ÿฐ .๐Ÿ’ #galvinlachapelle #galvinbrothers #michelin #michelinstar #dessert #deconstructed #cheesecake #spitalfields #spitalfieldsmarket #shoreditch #london #uk #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #thetaleofateaspoon at Galvin La Chapelle

Beautiful chicken breast with complimentary, clean flavours that allowed the poultry to keep centre stage. .๐Ÿ” .๐Ÿฅ .๐Ÿฅ™ #restaurantreview #galvinlachapelle #galvinbrothers #galvinrestaurants #chicken # #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #michelinstar #spitalfields #michellinstar at Galvin La Chapelle

My partner said that this was the best cod he's ever had. He doesn't eat meat so actually eats a fair amount of cod and as such this is high praise indeed. .๐ŸŸ .๐ŸŒณ .๐ŸŸ #galvinlachapelle #lachapelle #galvinbrothers #restaurantreview #cod #fish #broccoli #michellinstar #whatatreat #treatyourself #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #london #spitalfields #uk #thetaleofateaspoon

My last trip to London was only brief but somehow I managed to fit in a truly magical evening in the tranquil elegance of Michelin Star restaurant, Galvin La Chapelle. This lobster and bisque was the absolute winner; both aesthetically enchanting and possessing flavours that momentarily stop time, long enough for you to fully appreciate them. The duck terrine with fig and apple (second picture) was also beautifully presented and packed full flavour. .๐Ÿฆ .๐Ÿฆ† .๐Ÿฅ„ #galvinlachapelle #lachapellerestaurant #galvinrestaurants #london #londonrestaurant #england #uk #restaurantreview #michelin #michelinstar #michelinstarfood #lobster #bisque #duckterrine #elegance #decadence #thetaleofateaspoon

When in England... greasy spoon! But obviously it's a London greasy spoon so I could get fancy eggs benedict too. That mug of tea was just the best, with white buttery toast, oh yeah! .๐Ÿณ .๐Ÿฅ“ .๐Ÿฅž #london #uk #england #breakfast #englishbreakfast #eggsbenedict #greasyspoon #mugoftea #homecomforts #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #cafe338 at Cafรฉ 338

Sophie ordered much better than I did and her salmon salad and dressed crab were both delicious and once again fantastically presented. Would definitely go back to @hastingsseafood just so I could find out what else is good on the varied menu. .๐Ÿฆ€ .๐ŸŸ .๐Ÿฅ™ #hastings #seafood # #instafood #food #foodstagram #yummy #nomnom #tastes #flavour #restaurantreview #wheretoeat #seaside #englishseaside #uk #fishfood #hastingslife #lifeinhashtags

Taylor's in Hastings had lots of good ratings on Trip Advisor so we went to check it out. I opted for the crab cakes which were good enough but not really anything to write home about taste and texture wise. Definitely needed to be crispier in the outside. Nice presentation, great environment and friendly staff. .๐Ÿฆ€ .๐ŸŸ .๐Ÿฆ€ #hastings #taylorsrestaurant #foodreview #restaurantreview #fishcakes #crabcakes #chips #seaside #instafood #food #foodstagram #nomnom #tastes #flavour #wheretoeat #englishseaside #visithastings #tripadvisor
