Under The Influence

Under The Influence

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

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.

Paris Je T'aime

I may not have mentioned it (that’s not true- I’m always mentioning it) but I used to live in Paris. Paris is my favourite city in the world. I don’t live there now, which sometimes makes me a bit sad, but it does mean that when I visit I now get to act like a number one Paris tourist mega fan. You can’t do that when you live there, it is terribly unParisienne.
4th of July S'mores

4th of July S'mores

We still like America, right? Despite the Trump stuff. Actually, maybe because of the Trump stuff we need to send them a bit more love. So happy 4th of July Americans. Here’s my Englishy/ Frenchy twist on the All American S’more…because immigration is a good thing. 
Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream Marshmallowist Recipe

Toasted Marshmallow Ice-Cream

Phew! What a scorcher. We're looking for any excuse to get out of the kitchen this week and we've got just the recipe to do it. Yup, toasted marshmallow ice cream. All the very best of summer joys from smoky festival campfires to sun speckled beaches- churned into each indulgent lick. I use an ice cream maker to whip this up- but it is also pretty easy to make by hand, you just need a fork and some wrists that fancy a work out.
Don't Drink Gin All Day...

Don't Drink Gin All Day...

This time 6 years ago it was the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. You may remember it… it rained, there were boats. Anyway, to mark the occasion I created my Blueberry & Gin marshmallow for a party. The flavour was whipped up as a celebration of Britishness, nostalgia. A dewy hedgerows and gin- in- teacups- kind of thing ( I’d just moved back from Paris so that didn’t seem so Brexit-ty then)

 So, John Lewis emailed back.

“oh my god, I can’t look, I can’t look”

That’s the problem when you have one of those dream boards and at the top of it is John Lewis circled and underlined in different coloured pens. When you finally get an email from them it all gets a bit much.

“They love the marshmallows” 

I can’t BREATHE at this point. 

Why I made a Bloody Mary Marshmallow

Why I made a Bloody Mary Marshmallow

I know why I fell in love with the Bloody Mary; it got me when I was vulnerable. In fact, it always gets me when I’m vulnerable. Fuzzy headed, dry mouthed and unsure of what I like or want. For a while I questioned if I actually really liked ‘Marys or if it was just circumstance- but nope, she’s a keeper.
