Locally, @Lussmanns – has the most amazing and sustainable fish menu. For all things sweet, it has to be @thepuddingstop.

Thai or Italian – you can’t beat freshly made pasta or Neapolitan style pizza.

Chai latte (I’m a minority in the fact that I don’t really like coffee). Alcoholic – amaretto sour.

4. Most recent/ favourite recipe book bought?

Ottolenghi Simple – a lockdown purchase. really easy but tasty Middle Eastern recipes. Everything I’ve made from this book so far has been a winner.

For cooking inspiration as well as restaurants – @mybossbuysmelunch – Lori has really smashed these two types of content over lockdown and has inspired me.

1. What’s your favourite place to eat?

We are completely spoilt for choice in St Albans, which is exactly why I do what I do, so I find this a really tough question! I think my absolute favourite is Dylan’s on George Street, especially for a roast dinner but their small plates are all beautifully put together and make for a really special meal.

Their sister pub ‘The Plough’ has a great vibe in the summer, especially with their pop-ups. Another favourite is The Bishop’s Cave. The selection of cheese and charcuterie is just amazing and the wines are also great. Staff there are so knowledgable if you ever have a problem ordering; I’ve always had a great night when I’ve been there.

2. Favourite meal/type of food?

I get asked this question a lot and I find it so difficult to answer. I decide one thing and then feel as though I am cheating on another! I don’t think I could live without Italian food however food with Asian influences are definitely one of my favourites. Vietnamese food has a very special place in my heart and I am so grateful that St Albans has Anne from ‘Taste Of Vietnam’ cooking up authentic Vietnamese treats each week! You also can’t beat a good old Sunday Roast!

3. Favourite drink?

Espresso martini. No question! Although I’m partial to a J2O in a pint glass, topped up with lemonade – so refreshing!

4. Most recent/ favourite recipe book bought?

The most recent cookery book I have bought was the Hertfordshire cookbook, of course! I absolutely love that lots of my local favourites have been featured in this. It’s really nice to be able to try and cook up some of my favourites at home!. Next on my list if the fish cake from Lussmanns!

5. Which food blogger would you recommend following?

I love these two accounts: @reenee_eats and @hitchinfoodie both of them have a lovely mix of meals out and their own home-cooked food. They’re both so talented and they capture their dishes beautifully, I could scroll their feeds for hours!

Berks & Bite : Addicted to doughtnuts

1. My most favourite place to eat ever is Bar Iberico in Nottingham.

Down south I love Clay’s in Reading – they’re not open now due to Covid but launched a nationwide curry postal service!

2. Favourite meal/type of food?

I absolutely love Mexican food or Spanish tapas. I think I really love that style of eating where you get everything in the middle and share. Plus I’m super indecisive so it means I get to try lots of things from the menu. I’m also absolutely addicted to doughnuts and am making it my mission to try them from doughnut shops all over the UK.

3. Favourite drink?

Coffee. Without a doubt, great coffee is my absolute favourite. I also love an espresso martini when I go out.

4. Most recent/ favourite recipe book bought?

The most recent book is Flavour by Ottolenghi which is an entirely vegetarian cookbook. Ottolenghi is one of my most recent favourite chefs – his recipes are from the Middle East and are so tasty.

5. Which food blogger would you recommend following?

I recommend following @hellocuppies. She is a food blogger and Baker. She posts amazing recipes and recently opened her own cake cafe!

Bucks Foodie - Eating my way through independents / small chains

Bucks Foodie – instagram.com/bucksfoodie

1. What’s your favourite place to eat?

My favourite place to eat has got to be @bluegrassbbq I love their breakfasts just as much as their main menu. It’s one of those places that I’ve never been disappointed at & the food is ALWAYS delishhh!

2. Favourite meal/type of food?

My favourite meal is probably homemade sweet & sour chicken with egg fried rice. My dad taught me how to make sweet & sour sauce when I was about 14 & it’s been a big favourite ever since. I love Chinese food in general. It is such a comfort food to me, when I’m sad, when I’m celebrating, when I’m hungover 🤣 there’s also SO much choice – what’s not to love!!

3. Favourite drink?

If we’re talking alcoholic I love a Cosmopolitan – Carrie Bradshaw is, and always will be, my idol! Otherwise, a classic cup of tea is my go-to drink – all day every day.

4. Most recent/ favourite recipe book bought?

Jamie Oliver’s 5 Ingredients: Quick & Easy Food! It is an amazing book & perfect if you’re on a budget, or fancy something easy. I’ve used the recipes for date nights and dinner parties, they always go down a treat!

5. Which food blogger would you recommend following?

@litestyle_choices & @a_foodie_eats are two of my personal favourites. They both post great recipes that are healthy & look delicious, as well as showcase what Buckinghamshire really has to offer in the foodie scene!
