Dear friend, I’m sure by now you’d know that my dad is the ORIGINAL East London Brazilian Donut man. If you didn’t know that then I really don’t know where you’ve been hiding loool. I’ll often meet someone and briefly mention my dad – to which they’ll respond, “OOH that’s your dad?!”. For over 20 years, he’s been associated with events such as The Lord Mayor’s Festival and Under the Stars, as well as [weekly] being posted at East London markets i.e. Roman road & Brick Lane. They are essentially churros rolled in cinnamon sugar, but with a hole in the middle that can be filled with a filling of your choice. If you know, you know ;).

Dear friend, Last week I was kindly invited to sample Café Rouge’s new range of croque sandwiches. Silly me didn’t read the email properly and literally thought I was just going to try the standard ham and cheese toastie. WRONG!!! I was so pleasantly surprised with their THREE new combinations. Just to save you some time, the salmon was my favourite!! (All served with fries or salad)

Dear friend, I must say, this recipe is a bit of a catch with my vegan friends – shout out Holly and Liv (the only vegans I know). I came up with it a few years back when I was on The Daniel Fast. I was surprised at how good it was and so have been eating it ever since. I tend to add spinach to it once the onions have cooked, but tbh, what student can afford spinach? I hope you enjoy this recipe, and the video of my friend trying to make it 😀

Dear friend, Don’t hate me looool – I know porridge is the easiest thing in the world to make. I just wanted to show you 2 things I added to mine to take it from a 2/10 breakfast to a solid 10. Bare in mind I don’t really like coconut or peanut butter, I was so surprised at how addicted to this I got. At one point, I was eating porridge twice a day and was buying a new pot of this butter every fortnight! We all like our porridge consistency different (some don’t like it at all LOL) but I’ll note the oat : milk ratio I use just so you can see how I make mine. P.s. I never eat fruit with my porridge, this was purely for show loool.
