Over the weekend, Neil and I headed to the Summertown Farmer’s Market. Partly to check out what was on offer, and partly to partake in a (delicious!) pulled pork sandwich from Shredded Meat Co. who are setting up shop there each weekend this summer. The market was lovely, and most businesses along the strip where … Continue reading A funny thing happened on the way from the Farmer’s Market

Out of the buzz from this story has come a dialogue about why we’re outraged by how these … Continue reading Got Milk?

When we did our cooking classes in Thailand, one of the dishes we learned was a steamed banana cake. It … Continue reading Bananarama
