Dominique Ansel Cronut (and Cookie Shot)

My lovely friend Alice introduced me to the delights of the Dominique Ansel bakery in London today. Dominique Ansel invented the Cronut – a croissant-donut hybrid which I encountered first in the Dum Dum Donutterie Zebra cronut – so I was excited to try the original. […]

Bill’s Cinnamon Doughnuts

Bill’s Cinnamon Doughnuts

Sam and I went to Bill’s in Soho before a trip to the Gielgud theatre to see the Robert Harris’ Cicero plays (very good, but the books are even better…). We needed somewhere reliable for good food at a reasonable price and with speedy service. […]

Two of my passions collided last month: stationery and doughnuts. This came courtesy of Pipsticks – a stationery subscription service from the US. I signed up 9 months ago (with a teacher discount) and each month they send 14+ strips of stickers in the post for approx. […]

Ben’s Canteen is one of my favourite local restaurants and always a reliable option for a Saturday night. Their mission is a) to create an alternative to a pub for a relaxed weekend, and b) serve up delicious (and Aussie-inspired) brunches. My Ben’s top three dishes […]

The Pudding Stop, St Albans

I made a trip to St Alban’s at the start of half-term, primarily to do some research for a Year 7 trip, but also to get out of the capital and try some doughnuts. After a useful wander around Verulamium Museum to snap photos of […]
