Afternoon Tea In Style At sketch, London

I know afternoon tea is a time-honoured British tradition. But sitting around in fancy hotels eating tiny sandwiches and pouring from a teapot isn’t exactly my idea of fun. Mrs Food Geek loves a good afternoon tea, though. So on a recent trip to London, I decided to repay the countless times she’s been dragged around restaurants and bars for my benefit. With a surprise ... Read More »

L’Enclume, Cartmel, Cumbria

L’Enclume, Cartmel, Cumbria

I don’t often have much luck when it comes to weather but choosing to visit L’Enclume in the pretty Lake District village of Cartmel on by far the best weekend of the entire year was certainly very lucky indeed.
