This month I was challenged by Arla, a dairy cooperative, to try and test their range of lactose-free products. I was curious to see if there were any differences in taste and texture compared to traditional dairy, so I took on the challenge to cook with them for two weeks. One of the dishes I made was a Butternut Squash and Cheese Pasta Bake using Arla Lactofree cream and cheddar cheese. Read on to find out more about my experience.

Three weeks ago I travelled to Milan to speak at food blogger conference FoodCamp and it was a pleasure to be back in Milan after two years. I never say no to a few days of Italian sun and food! I often go to Milan for events and work meetings and usually I stay with friends, but this time I stayed at the marvellous Principe di Savoia Hotel. I think it was the first time I ever stayed in a hotel in Milan, and what an amazing place to start!

We are spoilt for choice for brunch in London, but the truth is the majority of restaurants focus on traditional British (or American) breakfast dishes. If you are looking for brunch that is truly out of the ordinary, you should try the newly launched Japanese brunch set menu at Aqua Kyoto. I was invited along to a bloggers’ brunch a few weeks ago and my friend Adrienne (a food Instagrammer @fungry.nomad) agreed to attend on my behalf. Adrienne’s thorough review of the dishes and pictures of beautiful sushi platters have already convinced me to visit Aqua Kyoto soon. I hope you will enjoy this guest post!
