Blaggers’ Banquet – 15th of November in London

4032550207_eaef9f458d

The Blagger’s banquet is a great event put together by food bloggers to support a bigger campaign: Action against hunger

I find the event extraordinary and I will try to support it as much as I can.

How it works: On the 15th of November we will meet at Hawksmoor for an exiting dinner cooked, served and sourced entirely by bloggers. Bonus: we will have a blagger’s auction, where we will auction items we’ve blagged.

All funds raised at the auction, together with the money raised on banquet tickets  will go to Action Against Hunger.

It will be lovely if you could help us with anything: food, drinks, items to auction. You offer it, we use it to a good cause, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to help us out: sassyfoodie [@] gmail [.] com.

Undecided

I am undecided.

For a couple of weeks now, I am thinking about changing the name of my blog.Don’t ask me why, the answer will probably sound really silly to you.

The confusion comes from the fact that WordPress doesn’t actually allow you to change the name of the blog, so, if I want to do this I need to actually migrate everything on the new blog..

This takes time, and courage, and so many other things.. What template to choose, how should the header look like, should it be girly or not? These are the big questions now :).

Anyway the point I am trying to make is that I’ll probably have an announcement for you soon, so keep checking this space.

I remembered: another reason for this post is to tell you that I am still cooking, and I have loads of posts in the waiting room, but first I need to decide on which blog to actually post them.

See you soon!

Mr. Fredricksen

I feel very ashamed that I totally forgot to introduce you guys to my new best friend: Mr. Fredricksen

He is my first Chef’s knife, that Alex bought for me from Selfridges a week ago.

I can’t tell you how happy I am to have him on my side :).

He even helps when I am not sure the food is great..
You see Alex can’t say it’s crap now, since I have a very sharp Mr. Fredricksen on my side, if you know what I mean.

So? What do you think of him?

Isn’t he such a good looking thing? :)

Disappointed – update

Following this article, I’ve sent my two grinders to Chef’n distibutor in the UK – Dexam.

They were really nice and helpful and now I have on my desk two new grinders that they’ve sent me.

Thank you Chef’n and Dexam for this!

Hope they will last longer this time.

A few days ago, I was telling you about my kitchen gadgets and I presented the cute Mini Magnetic PepperBall set that I bought. You have to admit it looks nice, and it is so much fun to squeeze the ears to get fresh ground salt or pepper.

However, last night the ear from my PepperBall broke in my hand.  You should know that I am not the strongest person, so I can’t really understand how this happened after just 3 weeks of using it.

Not sure if I should think I was unlucky, or if this is just a pretty product instead of a great design and a reliable product in the same time.

I wrote an e-mail to the guys over at Chef’n and I am just waiting to see what they have to say about all of this. I’ll let you know.

Autumn on Portobello Market

I looove markets: food stalls, clothes stalls, antiques stalls, all of them…and since we had a lovely day in London on Saturday we went to Portobello Market.

The autumn is here and so we had a great experience just cruising through the stalls: orange, reds, greens and other beautiful colours just amazed us; not to mention the smell or apples, pears, pumpkins and occasionally seafood.

Not sure about you, but I find autumn absolutely gorgeous and I think these pictures might convince you I’m right:
