Caspar’s promised belated pup cupcake of boiled chicken breast, blueberries and peanut butter. It must have been so so good .... He did not share.... 🤣🤣🎉🎉🎂🎂🍾❤️❤️❤️ #thelarderat36 #foodphotography #thegfw2021 #igfood #yummy #tasty #foodblog #foodporn #instafood #thefoodwriter #foodphotography #foodblogger #foodporn #foodie #foodgasm #homecook @nattynibbles @barnyardbollinger @ziggy_cavapoo @ranyardhouse_westies @hamisharchie @nevis.shaw @panosampatzopoulos @dogstorieslondon ...

There is a reason why they call it GOOD Friday... (can’t believe how busy Islington is!!!) Woke up thinking a walk to the local bakery for an obligatory hot cross bun would cancel out calories of the bun itself - till I got distracted.

It’s Easter. Lamb Burger is as close as I will get to chomping into those sweet little white four legged cute bouncy fluff balls in the fields... I think I quite possibly overdid it... just one herbed Waitrose patty broiled in a covered wok, melted mature cheddar cheese, real coleslaw, cucumber and freshly made HOT Turkish chilli sauce in a Heston Brioche bun. I won’t be bouncing for a while!! 😳#easter #lamb #lambburger #brioche #coleslaw #waitrose #cheddar #yummy

Light lunch today. Smørrebrød of seeded wholemeal, lashings of butter (cos it’s a smørrebrød) with organic roasted Namayasai beetroot, boiled egg and Abba Grebbestad Ansjovis.

Today’s “five-a-day”. Fruit liqueurs. Interesting as it was a first for me. Some amazing samples. Fun day meeting new and old friends in cyber space judging. Thank you World Drinks Awards. I had a fun day. #judging #worlddrinksawards #fruitliqueurs #liqueurs #drinks #fun #thelarderat36 #thelarderat36drinks @tobiasgorn @salvatorelovesflavors @worlddrinksawards ...

A “Find-whatever-you-have-lurking-in-the-Fridge” Ramen. Tonight some chicken, pork, white cabbage, giant spring onion and shiitake. Dusted with shichimi. Comfort food made in minutes (as long as the chicken breast and pork left simmering to create the stock while you get on with life isn’t in the equation!) #thelarderat36 #foodphotography #thegfw2021 #igfood #yummy #tasty #foodblog #foodporn #instafood #thefoodwriter #foodphotography #foodblogger #foodporn #foodie #foodgasm #homecook
