Seaweed tagliatelle with a tomatoey seafood mix

I Sea Pasta Seaweed Tagliatelle

Why did the crab blush? …because the sea weed! Ha!

Today I have a very intriguing foodie product to share with you. Seaweed tagliatelle!

The fabulous people at Seamore Food have created some absolutely amazing products, including the I Sea Pasta Seaweed Tagliatelle which Ian and I have been trying out. (They do an I Sea Bacon pack too!)

I Sea Pasta is filled with so much goodness it’s pretty gobsmacking! It’s full of fibre, top vitamins and minerals, omega3,  antioxidants… Plus, it’s vegan, gluten free, low-carb, low-calorie AND it actually tastes yummy! Win win!

It’s really good to know that the harvesting process is sustainable too. The harvesters only pick patches up to a maximum of 15%, ensuring that the seaweed will grow back. The Seamore company, its harvesters and partners are all certified organic too!

So, let me share with you how we (well…Ian!) cooked up this yummy seaweed tagliatelle, featuring a few of our favourite ingredients from Waitrose.

I Sea Pasta Seaweed Tagliatelle

Ingredients we used:

Seamore I Sea Pasta Seaweed Tagliatelle

Seafood mix – this is a bag you can grab in Waitrose featuring mussels, squid rings and prawns

Sweet & Tangy, tomato & sun-dried tomato jar sauce

Onion, garlic, courgette – use as much or as little as you wish!

Intensely rich sun-dried tomatoes, scattered over once served

Lemon – for a little squeeze over at the end

…we also paired ours up with a little bit of warmed up rosemary and rock salt focaccia bread on the side, which is deeelish by the way! Definitely recommend this beautiful bread! I’m 100% going to buy it again sometime.

Waitrose Rock Salt and Rosemary Focaccia Bread

There are 3 different ways to cook the seaweed. You can soak it for 45 mins in cold water, which reduces the “sea breeze” smell – they recommend this for raw food/salads etc. Secondly, you can soak it in hot water for 20 mins and you will get a slight “sea breeze” scent and a mild bite. Or alternatively, you can do what we did and cook it for 15-20 mins like you would with a pasta – this leaves it more tender and you have more of that “sea breeze” as Seamore likes to call it!

Seamore Food I Sea Pasta Review

I have seen some people say they don’t like the smell of it, but both me and Ian were a fan! We’re big seafood lovers anyways and love our mussels, calamari, prawns and other fishy dishes – so maybe we’re more accustomed to it? When it was cooking it smelt lovely, and to the taste I didn’t find it overpoweringly fishy/seaside-y at all!

We loved the texture of the seaweed and really thought it had a substantial substance to it. It wasn’t too floppy or mushy, it really filled us up! I’ve tried other “healthy” pastas before such as Slim Pasta from Holland and Barrett and have been completely unimpressed…so much so that I threw out the packets I had left, because I disliked it so much. The Seamore I Sea Pasta is completely different and I am really looking forward to having the rest of the packet for another dinner this week!

Healthy, tasty and filling, there’s nothing we didn’t like about it! Paired up with all the other tasty ingredients we put it with and it was such a yummy dinner. Well done Seamore! We’re so pleased to have discovered you!

Intrigued? Want to give it a whirl too? You can find out more about Seamore Food over on their website here: www.seamorefood.com and a quick little search online will bring up a whole host of places to buy it from! Enjoy!

*Thank you to Seamore Food for letting us try out their funky seaweed tagliatelle for free. We’re genuinely impressed how tasty and filling it is!

Revamped PizzaExpress cracks the code for a great night out

Pizza Express Milton Keynes

No, I couldn’t have thought of a much cheesier title than that if I tried! But yes, PizzaExpress in Midsummer Arcade Milton Keynes has had a rather lovely refresh with a Bletchley Park twist!

I think it’s so great that this chain restaurant has taken the time to pay homage to local history, by ensuring their décor reminds us of how amazing the code breaking team were just down the road in Bletchley Park during the war.

With a glass of Prosecco in my hand and a glass of Peroni in Ian’s, here’s the low down on the food we enjoyed…

Ian just had to have the calamari as soon as he spotted it! Perfectly battered and served with Caesar dressing and a slice of lemon, these were as yummy as expected and always a sure winner of a starter!

I opted for the Risotto Primavera, which I’ve realised is much harder to get a pretty photograph of, but I can assure you that this was a super yummy choice for a starter and a great way to get added greens into your meal. This risotto starter is one of their new additions to the menu and is completed with the flavours of white wine, garlic and Gran Milano cheese. This dish is gluten free too!

For mains Ian had the huge spicy Calabrese pizza, which is topped with amazing ingredients such as sausage, red chilli, Roquito pepper, roasted peppers, mozzarella, tomato, buffalo mozzarella, rocket, pesto and Gran Milano cheese – just in case you didn’t have enough cheese already! What a pizza! This is a hot dish, so those who can’t handle the heat (like me!) need not apply. But if heat is your thing, Ian would definitely recommend this.

I had the Seafood Rigatoni which is one of PizzaExpress’ Spring Specials! Fish lovers unite! This rigatoni pasta dish is full of the lovely stuff. Salmon, pollock and king prawns, served in a creamy white wine and garlic sauce, topped with lemon and parsley. I absolutely loved it! The slice of lemon was perfect too. You can’t beat a squeeze of lemon on fish dishes!

We also tried our first ever lot of polenta chips! It was really nice to try something new and unusual. I think I’m still a fan of my standard chips or a good ol’ portion of sweet potato fries, but it’s definitely worth trying these out for fun! You might just love them!

Now for dessert… I tried the Lemon Bundt Cake which is another one of their Spring Specials, and oh wow! This is to die for. Now I’m not usually a lemon or “lighter choice” style dessert girl, I usually opt for the biggest stodgiest chocolate dessert ever and then end up regretting it. But after all that delicious food we had I knew I had to go for something a little lighter. This was just perfect! The lemon sponge ring is beautifully made, with a ever so slightly crunchy casing and a wonderfully soft and moist centre. It’s served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, mint and icing sugar. If you’re usually a chocolate lover like me, I urge you to give this lovely little cake a try.

I also had a gorgeous vanilla latte to finish my meal on an additional high!

Ian is a coffee lover, he’s especially partial to an espresso which is exactly what he had. On the PizzaExpress dessert menu you have the option to choose a hot drink and a mini dessert instead of your standard pud. What a great idea! Ian grabbed that espresso and had it alongside a little dish of mascarpone and figs in a cinnamon and white wine spiced syrup. It all went down very well indeed!

Chelsea Flower Show Afternoon Tea at Frosts Woburn Sands

Afternoon Tea Frosts Garden Centre

Afternoon Tea Frosts Garden Centre

I’m about to welcome you to quite possibly the most beautiful booking you will make this week. The Chelsea Flower Show Afternoon Tea at Frosts Garden Centre, Woburn Sands. Whether you’re a true green-fingered gardener or simply love all things floral and gorgeous, you will love both the Chelsea and Summer afternoon teas available at Frosts Garden Centre.

The Chelsea afternoon tea is taking place this week! From Monday 22nd until Saturday 27th of May – so if this post ignites your need for something truly stunning this week, don’t delay in booking your place! Obviously, the Chelsea afternoon tea is in celebration of one of the biggest flower shows in the world, so of course Frosts just had to put on this wonderful display of deliciousness!

All the afternoon teas are held in the gorgeous Bay Tree Room, which couldn’t look any more dreamy if it tried. White painted wood, beautiful natural flowers, fine bone china, bunting, there’s even a tree to bring the outside in as you look out upon their lovely garden. It’s no surprise that Frosts have started to take their first wedding bookings for this venue! You can even sit in the garden and have your afternoon tea on Summer days. It’s just all rather wonderful!

I was invited along to see what all the fuss was about, and naturally I couldn’t turn down a pot of tea and some cake! We were greeted by the fantastic Frosts team, who I must truly applaud for being such friendly and welcoming people. They were all so lovely! They did greet us with glasses of Prosecco, but I promise this did not alter my perception of them. They’re genuinely fab! If Prosecco wasn’t your jam, they had a whole lot of Pimms available and some lovely orange juice too. We were definitely well catered for.

Afternoon Tea Frosts Woburn Sands

The team then introduced us to the two brand new afternoon teas available at Frosts, and then things got really exciting – we got to eat them! …and oh my, everything was gorgeous! The afternoon teas have a fantastic mix between classic sandwiches and something a little bit different – such as the scone with a parma ham and fig filling! I pushed the boat out and even ate foods I wouldn’t usually opt for and ended up really enjoying them. I think that’s the really fun aspect of afternoon teas, you get to try things you love already alongside something new.

In particular, a “something new” for me…was edible flowers! I’d heard a lot about these lately on food shows and wasn’t sure what to expect, but they’re not bad at all. They’re seen as a palette cleanser between foods, so why not give one a whirl if you pop by this week? Let me know what you think if you try one! They were so fun, so apt and really brightened up the Chelsea flower show afternoon tea.

Treat wise, I really must stress how bloomin’ amazing the chocolate mousse in the super cute mini flower pot is! It really was to die for. Smooth rich yummy chocolatey-ness topped with a crunchy chocolatey biscuit top. If you’re a chocolate fan, this one’s for you! You’re really spoilt for choice and there’s definitely something for everyone, with chocolate indulgence through to lighter fruit choices. Perfect!

If you haven’t already seen it, *click here* to see my post from a couple of years ago of my first ever Frosts Woburn Sands afternoon tea!

If the Chelsea Flower Show afternoon tea tickles your fancy, you better move quickly as it’s running from today (May 22nd) until this Saturday (May 27th) and costs £22.99 per person.

Don’t forget to take a peep at the Summer afternoon tea (as pictured above alongside the Chelsea tea), the Summer afternoon tea is £17.95 per person – and that’s not all! Coming up this year is the Wimbledon afternoon tea (running Monday 3rd July – Friday 7th July and Monday 10th July – Friday 14th July) – expect a cute tennis theme and strawberries and cream galore!

Also, who said afternoon tea was just a thing for the ladies!? Coming up this year is a very “man friendly” afternoon tea for Father’s Day, featuring a mini burger, chicken satay, twice fried hand cooked chips, breads, dipping oils and doughnuts! All accompanied with a glass of beer wine or soft drink.  (The Father’s Day afternoon tea is running on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th June.)

Rediscovering Tea with T2 Milton Keynes

T2 Milton Keynes
If you follow me on either Twitter (linky) or Instagram (linky), you’ll know that I’ve often said that I feel a cup of tea can solve anything. I wholeheartedly believe that taking time out to breathe and enjoy just a moment or two with a cup of something lovely can help us feel much more restored.

I was recently invited to take a trip to planet tea, otherwise known as T2 in Milton Keynes! I say “planet tea” because, well, anything these guys don’t know about tea isn’t worth knowing!

T2 Milton Keynes

As soon as you walk in to this beautifully styled store, you’ll be amazed at the plethora of tea available. Now you may enjoy exploring the store by yourself or alternatively feel a bit flabbergasted and not know where to begin, but do feel free to ask the *genuinely* friendly team about anything you see or to show you the way, as they’re so lovely in there!

When I arrived for my masterclass in all things T2 I was greeted by a very lovely lady and boy does this lady know her stuff!

First up she introduced us to this delightfully delicious cuppa called Baxter’s Buns – which is one of their “feature” teas. This cup of yumminess is based on hot cross buns, and who doesn’t like those tasty little fellows!? If you’re a cinnamon fan and love those doughy buns, then this is definitely worth grabbing a box of! It was served with milk, a squidge of honey for sweetness, tasted so lovely and the cinnamon (one of my favourite scents and tastes!) reminded me of my favourite time of year, Christmas!! (Yes! I said the “C” word in May!)

T2 Milton Keynes

Now I must say I was particularly intrigued by all the amazing equipment we were shown during the entire masterclass. It put my little teapot at home to shame!

The next lovely drink we got to try out was the fabulous Packs a Punch! Before we had our Baxter’s Buns, the Packs a Punch tea was left sitting pretty as it brewed away in these totally awe-inspiring teamakers!

T2 Milton Keynes

T2 Milton Keynes

These amazing little things not only let the tea brew away inside them, just simply pop them on top of the mug, press down and voila! Your drink is served! No drips, no mess, just a really super easy to use teamaker! How clever? If you fancy getting your mitts on one of these fab little things, they’re £20 from T2 and come in a choice of 4 colours. I think they’d make such a great gift for a tea lover!

Back to the tea…

So we tried out the Packs a Punch tea both hot and (as you can see above!) …iced! I loved both ways it was served as it was so full of fruit flavour (because T2 make things properly! No weak fruity flavour here!), but I must say I really liked it on ice and found it so refreshing after a long day at work. Think of those sunny days ahead – this could be the perfect after work chill out iced tea!

T2 Milton Keynes

To complete our masterclass, we learnt all about Matcha tea! If you pop into T2 right now, you’ll discover a variety of matcha teas available. Whether you fancy giving the classic Matcha tea a whirl, or you’d prefer a little extra flavour. It’s all there to be enjoyed!

Another lovely T2 lady joined us to teach us all about Matcha, and once again we were wowed by the fountain of knowledge these guys have! It was truly brilliant!

We were talked through the different versions of Matcha that can be made, from the strongest, through to the more milky and frothy tasting. Matcha tea is made using the best part of green tea leaves and has many more antioxidants than your standard green tea. Due to the way it’s grown it also has a higher level of caffeine – it’s said that the monks like to drink it to keep themselves focussed!

Just before Christmas I had tried a Matcha latte, which I enjoyed – probably because it was full of milky frothy goodness!! So I was intrigued to try out the different “levels” as such of the Matcha tea. I really enjoyed trying them all out but definitely took more of a liking to the milkier tasting versions. Of course it’s an acquired taste, but I think it’s worth trying out to see what you like – it’s all personal preference after all!

You might be intrigued by the cute little bowl and whisk that’s used to whip up the Matcha drinks. These little items are the traditional Japanese tools to use when creating your Matcha drinks! The bowl is called Chawan and the bamboo whisk is called a Chasen.

It’s also said that it’s tradition to eat something sweet before having the more bitter styles of Matcha, so we were offered a jelly baby before trying it out – and who was I to say no!?

Do pop by their “Matcha Discovery Station” instore and have some fun trying it all out – you might just love it!

When it was time to head home, the lovely team gave us a goodie bag with Packs A Peach and an infuser – I am *SO* ready to enjoy some peachy iced goodness after work this Summer!

Have you set foot in the T2 Milton Keynes store before? I’d love to know your tea recommendations!

…and if you haven’t, do swing by and check it all out! Whether you’re a loose tea, tea bag, fruity tea, classic tea or simply a tea pot collecting person….it doesn’t matter – this store has it all covered!

T2 Milton Keynes is located next to Cath Kidston and opposite The White Company. Visit the website here: http://www.t2tea.com/en/uk/Home

Thank you once again to T2 Milton Keynes! It was so fun to come and truly explore the wonderful world of tea!

The Crown Pub & Restaurant Granborough – Review

A couple of weekends ago, we (me & Ian) escaped to the countryside and took up camp for the evening at The Crown Pub & Restaurant in Granborough. Set in a beautiful village, away from the hustle and bustle of town life, The Crown is a perfect evening getaway for delicious food and drink for everyone.

We were greeted by the lovely staff there (honestly, they were all fab!) and were shown to a lovely barn conversion-look room with wooden beams and big windows letting the light stream in. One of the first things I noticed was their huge garden space, perfect for those with children that need to burn off that extra energy they have!

The Crown Granborough Review

When we were settled we ordered our drinks. For me, it was a glass of orange squash to quench my thirst…and a pot of tea. I know, I know, a strange pairing, but I was thirsty cue the squash and had a bit of a stressed out afternoon hence the calming pot of tea!! Don’t judge me! Haha! For Ian on the other hand it was a rather refreshing San Miguel.

The Crown Granborough Review

Then it was food time! Yay! To kick start the evening I had the courgette and parmesan soup, chosen from the specials board. I wasn’t sure what I’d think of the soup, but I was very pleasantly surprised with a very yummy bowl of deliciousness! The soup was accompanied with a lovely piece of bread and proper butter (which is lovely when you’re used to eating healthy spreads most days!) – definitely worth considering if it’s on the menu when you visit. Ian opted for the butterflied sardines on toast with chorizo salsa, again another choice from their specials board. He really enjoyed this tasty little starter and we both thought it was great to see something so unusual like that on the menu.

Taste buds ignited, it was time to ready ourselves for the main course. The roasted lamb rump, chickpea & chorizo stew with salsa verde, definitely had my name on it! I loved the mixture of ingredients, again something a little different mixed up together, but absolutely delicious and a perfect hearty meal cooked to perfection. Ian went for the slow roasted pork belly (a pub restaurant classic!), with spring onion mash, apple puree and savoy cabbage. Can you beat pork and apple together? I’m not too sure! This was another gorgeous dish, topped with a sprinkling of crackling – crackling which was actually crunchable and edible unlike some places which think your teeth are made of steel…

Just look at these stunning dishes..! If these don’t get you racing over there to try it for yourself, well, I do hope you’re feeling okay!?

Thankfully, we had room left in our bellies for a dessert-sized portion of food – convenient right!? Sooo…ready to get salivating over our desserts? Here goes!

Calling all cheesecake fans!! If you’d like to taste the most amazingly textured cheesecake EVER, you better get booking your table at The Crown in Granborough today, because the citrus cheesecake, with lemon sorbet and blackberry compote is about to become your new best friend. It. Is. To. Die. For. I’d happily go back to the restaurant just for this alone. Amazing.

Ian had the very scrummy lemon tart, which comes with Chantilly cream (lush stuff!!) and raspberries. The Chantilly cream was a perfect addition to this dessert, aiding to balance out the taste of the yummy tart tasting fruits.

Revolución de Cuba Milton Keynes – Review

Want to eat the best sweet potato fries, like, ever? Great. Read on!

Revolucion de Cuba Milton Keynes

Revolucion de Cuba Milton Keynes

Walking into Revolución de Cuba is like walking into Cuba itself, it’s an all-round sensory experience. The smell of amazingly cooked food, the sight of lanterns, typical décor and people having fun, the taste of thirst quenching cocktails in really fun glasses, the sound of the band playing in the corner keeping the vibe going and the touch of your knife and fork allowing you to tuck into it all!! It’s a really fun place with a great vibe, it feels really “alive” in there. (Excuse the slightly odd looking people in my photos…The Rocky Horror Show was being shown at MK Theatre, so seeing men walk past the restaurant in fishnets and heels was a regular occurrence during the night…).

Revolucion de Cuba Milton Keynes
Revolucion de Cuba Milton Keynes
First up was our choice of drinks and with cocktails being a key addition that Revolución de Cuba are known for, we’d be silly to say no! I chose the Zombie which came in a Tiki style ceramic tumbler – amazing! Ian had a cocktail from their “specials” drinks menu, can’t remember what it was but it tasted yummy! …another recommendation would be the jug of sangria, I mean who doesn’t like sangria!?

Revulocion de Cuba Milton Keynes

So, the food, you want to know about the food right!? Revolución de Cuba’s menu is one that’s right up my street. Think chicken, chorizo, quesadillas, enchiladas, mixed with amazing seafood and a little bit of steak thrown in for good measure.

It was a little difficult to choose as there were so many amazing things on the menu, but here’s our choices…

Revolucion de Cuba Milton Keynes Review

Is your mouth watering yet? …for starters we opted for this little tapas selection of roasted chorizo which is glazed in a rich red wine and honey sauce, calamari – lightly dusted and served with garlic aioli and lemon, alongside mojito battered prawns – all of which was absolutely stunning! We could not fault any of these dishes…we just wished we could have bigger bellies to order more plates of it!!

Revloucion de Cuba Milton Keynes Review

Revolucion de Cuba Milton Keynes Review

My main dish was the classic chicken enchilada, which features an array of beautiful ingredients. The chicken is marinated in lime, soy and pineapple, and wrapped in a tortilla alongside peppers and onions. Of course, no enchilada would be complete without the yummy tomato sauce and cheese topping – comfort food at its best! (Probably also perfect as pre-cocktail evening food if you feel so inclined!). On the side I had some sweet potato fries THE BEST sweet potato fries I have ever eaten. No lie. *So* delicious, crispy & tasty – yum!

Revolucion de Cuba Milton Keynes Review

Ian went for the lime & chilli salmon steak, which was cooked to perfection and was definitely a great tasting dish!

So there you have it! A really fun and vibrant place to eat, with absolutely stunning food and equally yummy cocktails. If you haven’t been before, go go go! It really is a little gem in Milton Keynes and something a little different in comparison to other restaurants.

Deliveroo in Milton Keynes – Review

Deliveroo Milton Keynes

Deliveroo, I love youuu!

So, a few weeks ago I was invited to try out the Deliveroo service which has just landed in Milton Keynes – I know, amazing right!? So who was I to turn down food…

If you’re wondering what Deliveroo is, it’s all about having delicious freshly made restaurant food delivered to you in a jiffy. (Not an actual Jiffy bag, just, ya know, pretty quickly!)

Deliveroo have lots of men and women whizzing about on bicycles delivering the yummy food. You may have spotted them in London, I know I have! But now Deliveroo is here in Milton Keynes, saving MK from rubbish take aways and boring work lunches.

The service is really simple, you can check on their site to see if they deliver to you, register for an account, top up your account with food money and choose from a whole host of restaurants.

Deliveroo Milton Keynes Review

Deliveroo Milton Keynes Review

In Milton Keynes you can choose from the following restaurants: YO! Sushi, Jamie’s, Wagamama, Mr Pretzels, Burger King, Banana Tree, Loch Fyne & so much more!!

So I bet you’re all wanting to know what I ordered right!?

Well…I opted for a feast from Giraffe, to be delivered to my workplace. Imagine amazingly yummy food at your working desk. Yes. It can actually be a reality and it’s lush!

I found the ordering service really easy, plus there’s a little box when you order in case you need to add any further delivery info – super helpful!

My food turned up bang on time and was delivered to me to cute little Giraffe paper bags and carefully packaged in plastic containers – so no worries about spillages during their journey.

Deliveroo Milton Keynes Review

I chose a yumalicious starter of salt and pepper squid with chilli jam and fresh lime, which was to die for. This kinda food is right up my street, so to be able to scoff it at my desk was a true pleasure.

Deliveroo Milton Keynes Review

For my main I went on the healthy route and (staying with the fishy theme) selected the king prawn, chicken & mango salad, which was a feast for the eyes and mouth. A super colourful dish with cucumber, radish, avocado, mixed leaves and a tequila lime dressing – uhuh! Super yum!

So there you have it, amazingly delicious food from your favourite restaurants delivered directly to you thanks to Deliveroo – love it!

Check out their website to check if your home or workplace area is covered by their delivery service: https://deliveroo.co.uk/

Do keep an eye out for the Deliveroo “Express Lunch” soon to launch in Milton Keynes too – this is where they will deliver your feast to your desk, meeting or even a spot outside in the sunshine (wow!) in less than 15 minutes!! How great is that?

If you fancy signing up to Deliveroo and £10 credit to kick start your yummy adventure, here’s my referral link which will enable you to do just that (plus I’ll get a little extra too, so TIA!): https://roo.it/amandaa8138 …be sure to refer your friends once you’re all signed up too!

*Food money was provided by Deliveroo for me to review this service, but my thoughts on the fab service and the awesome food is most definitely my own. Some photographs were provided by Deliveroo (besides the ones of my lunch!), to help show you how amazing it all is!
