Borough Market

Time for another London post. There is simply so much to show and write about from this city. It is easily one of my favourite cities in Europe. I’ve already shared some foodie places from my visit to London and I want to add another one: Borough Market. British cuisine isn’t the most refined (or healthy) and I...

Whisky tasting in Edinburgh

When you think about whisky you probably think about Scotland. And when you think about Scotland, no doubt whisky comes to mind as well. No surprises probably when I tell you we did a whisky tasting when we were in Scotland last year. I have to admit that I never tasted it before we went to Scotland, but...

Burgers around the world

I’m a sucker for a good burger. As a foodie I love trying new kinds of restaurants, experiment with dishes, and explore local food, but I will never turn down a tasty burger.

Foodfestival Amsterdam

Last weekend the Foodfestival Amsterdam took in place in the convention centre the Rai. More than 80 different foodtrucks, restaurants, and food related companies where represented. You could basically get anything ranging from a grasshopper (yes really!) to a burger, and from a fancy glass of Moët et Chandon to a good old glass of beer. I visited...
