New house

We have just moved house to a new place in Chiswick near the river, and I’m really looking forward to exploring all the new foodie attractions down here, including:

FishWorks – near Turnham Green tube
This chain of fish restaurants with fresh fish counters is very popular, but I’ve yet to make use of one. Fish is a real cooking blind spot for me – I’m so seldom inspired to do something more interesting than fry or bake it – so I’m going to try and branch out a bit.

The Old Ship – on the river
A nice pub that was hired for work’s summer drinks a few weeks ago. Great river views, and they do decent food too.

Duke’s Meadows’ Farmers’ Market (do you think I got all the apostrophes right there?!)
Duke’s Meadows is a great piece of common land, with playing fields, allotments and gardens. There is a small farmers market on Sundays – I went last weekend, but right at the end, and much of the produce was gone. Will try and get up earlier next time 🙂

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
