Outdoor Toasting Experience

Outdoor Toasting Experience

 It’s dusky, cold enough to see your breath and you’re strolling through a stunning landscape you wouldn't normally be allowed in. But for 6 weeks it’s backlit, uplit, strung with lanterns, an arresting soundscape or neon projections envelope the darker corners. Sounds magical right? It is and it’s how we like to do Christmas. We’re back at some of the UK’s most beautiful attractions with our Toasting Marshmallow Experience and we can’t wait.

Baileys Bonfire S'mores

 If you need me you'll find me over here, brimming with excitement that I’m now part of the Bailey’s Treat Collective. Baileys have a knack for creating the most decadent of desserts whipped, drizzled and just oozing with Irish cream. Have a little peek at their enviable Instagram page to really get you reaching for the bottle. If you haven’t tried Baileys in anything other then a glass then let me and the rest of the Treat Collective lure you in. From punchy coldbrew coffees and delicate patisserie to my showstopping s’more.

5 tips for a Spooky Malloween

Throwing a spooky celebration this weekend? We LOVE a Malloween party here as it gives us the perfect excuse to get a bit more creative with our confectionery. To throw a Halloween bash with a grown up edge it’s best to skip the themed and stick to the seasonal. So here are my top tips for sweetening your party with grown up marshmallows....
Cheat your way to perfect autumn bakes.

Cheat your way to perfect autumn bakes.

Because autumn is the most sensual of seasons it makes me want to embrace flavours that pack a warmer punch and tastes that deliver comfort. It’s the time for slow cooking, for stewing and a slow bake. But it’s also the time of year when I want to go on long walks before it gets too cold or for sitting in the pub all afternoon drinking red. So, if you want to cheat your way to producing some lovely Autumnal treats without having to while away the whole day in the kitchen – here’s my top 3 cheats for seasonal deliciousness. 
The Perfect Hot Chocolate

The Perfect Hot Chocolate

A mug is just a mug, right? A vessel for hot drinks, we have mismatched ones, chipped one, maybe we have a favourite one. But, essentially, they’re all pretty much the same. Well, no. That’s not right at all. The mug you choose affects everything about your drink, how it tastes, how it feels, and the whole experience. So this year I wanted to find the perfect hot chocolate mug and WOAH did I stumble down a rabbit hole of pintrest, instagram design blog blurriness.

Indian Summers + Golden Luxe

I was in the supermarket this week when a mum turned around to snap at her child: “Ryan, I’ve told you, summer’s over now”. And wow, it hurt. I realised she was right. Im in the supermarket, summer is definitely over and no amount of hanging out by the new pencil cases or crisp, unpeeled A4 pads is going to make me feel better about it. So, here you find me trying to eek out ways to keep the last days from slipping away.

We’ve been blown away by the response to our new cannabis spiked marshmallows- with even The Sunday Times tipping them as 'the ones to try'. A couple of months ago we were approached by one of our customers, Tim, who owns the Great British Vape Shop in Holborn. He's a fan of edible CBD, the oil he buys is a premium organic, full plant hemp and he wanted to know what it would taste like in gourmet confectionery.

Paris Part Deux

As the evening draws in the Paris streets upturn you. Even in summer you’ll be seduced by the smaller, narrower alleys with the warm twinkly lights. It’s time to stop meandering and for your space to become smaller. As you came to Paris to enjoy yourself it’s about time we found those tantalising after dark spots to eat, drink and snog.
