Three friends – Jenny, Jacqueline and Vanessa, brought together by our mutual appreciation for food. Jen in London and Jacq and Vanessa in Sydney. Calling us avid foodies would be putting it lightly. We love cooking; we love eating and most of all, we love to forward plan…the next meal, and where it will be eaten.

Our approach to food is to try everything at least once. We’re fairly adventurous when it comes to eating, but there are certain things that make us completely predictable. Duck, pork belly and just about any form of seafood – if it’s on the menu, we’ll be sure to order it.

Through our love of food and travel, we hope to share with you our most memorable dining experiences from around the globe.

So if you’re hungry, don’t deny those grumbles and join us at our table while we feed our bellies.

Jenny, Jacqueline & Vanessa xx

    You guys are finally officially reviewing…well I suggest you also do some back dating and list some hot spots as to where you have already been but may not have reviewed.

    Jenny, that place in San Sebastian was amazing! and the tarts in Lisbon were superb. I feel these require a special mention on your blog 🙂

    Great to meet you and learn more about blogging. I much enjoy your writing of restaurants around the world, and also closer to home. Great variety of eating places, keep it up. I haven’t tried the Garrison yet, although its close, no doubt you’ll inspire me to cross the road and into some of the great eats of Bermondsey St, if not Sydney, San Francisco and other great eating places.


    1. Great to meet you too Tom, and glad you’re enjoying the site!

    So glad I stumbled upon your blog today. I live in London and am always on the hunt for new places to discover and blog about too. I’m also working on a site with a focus on beautiful photographs and discerning travel. The difference is that all the content is user generated. It’s called Triptease (www.triptease.com).

    At the moment we are looking to build up our London base and would love to have you on board. Do let me know what you think. My profile is (http://triptease.com/profile/ella-paskett/reviews) where you can get an idea of how it all fits together!

    Do you have an email I can be in touch with you on?
