Cheesecake + Doughnut = a Cheesecake Doughnut. Krispy Kreme have taken charge and merged the two, and hey presto we have Salted Caramel Cheesecake and Luscious Lemon Cheesecake. I half expected the Salted Caramel version, given salted caramel is absolutely everywhere, but the Lemon is a fab alternative.  Whilst out and about today I had a hankering for a doughnut! You can’t buy 2, they look far too lonely in the box, so 3 it is – thank you Krispy Kreme free doughnut every month for a year card!  Filled with salted caramel and vanilla cheesecake, topped with cheesecake icing, crunchy biscuits,…

Think of relish and I bet you don’t tick off half the number that Posh Pickles has to offer! I was lucky enough to try one of Posh Pickles handmade relishes through The Bloggers Hub, and after deliberating I opted for Sa Va Tu’o’ng ot*. What is Sa Va Tu’o’ng to? In foodie terms – Vietnamese Lemongrass and Chilli Relish, described as a spicy, sweet, sour and salty marinade, made only from Rapeseed oil, lemongrass, garlic, spring onion, red Thai chilli, sugar, lime juice, fish sauce, salt. Soon enough my sample arrived, and despite the slight leakage, and my postie wondering what the delicious smell was, Steph kindly…

Based in Midhurst, these Chocolatiers individually handcraft Chocolates, Truffles and Tablettes, using only the finest ingredients.  Being quite the chocolate lover I was extremely happy that Noble and Stace kindly sent me some samples to try, including their new and exclusive Mineral Water Truffles that are yet to be released.

The weather is hotting up which means hello ice cream. Previously I reviewed Ben & Jerry’s Utter Peanut Butter Cookie Core which I loved, but am keen to try a Supermarket own one; insert Sainsbury’s Salted Peanut and Caramel Ice Cream.  Jazzy flavour combinations are now a firm part of Supermarket own brand ranges, but can they match or beat the big guns like Ben & Jerry’s or Haagen-Daz? Sainsbury’s Salted Peanut and Caramel ice cream sits alongside their Chocolate Brownie, Cookie Dough and Toffee Honeycomb tubs, but what attracted me to try this? Peanut Butter of course! It’s great to see that…

Cau restaurant sits firmly at the top of Guildford High Street, and is a breath of fresh air to the umpteen amount of Italian restaurants that surrounds it. It’s difficult to imagine Buenos Aires in Guildford but they are certainly giving it a good go. We visited Cau when it first opened way back when, and after a few visits it had lost its sparkle. Fast forward a year or so, and with a newer menu, we decided to give it another whirl.  With a fun vibrant modern decor, and background tunes with a latin beat that you just can’t help…
