Un Café?


Good morning all,

Realisation struck that I have not posted anything coffee related for goodness knows how long… so I thought I would pay homage to my favourite stop in my city Boston tea party  (personal preference of course) I have tried every americano in the city centre over the years and I just can’t top my favourites over at Boston TP! What makes a good coffee? Only a true lover of the roasted bean will know, be it frothy milk, a silky latte, a strong flavour or a good locally/ethically sourced bean…indeed…then of course, there is the location, the atomosphere… many contributing factors go in to finding the perfect coffee shop! this is why I am indeed a “coffee person” Alchemy is involved on both the barista and the consumers parts, in a good coffee house and when they seamlessly combine atmospheric bliss and good produce that’s when it all comes together. Now, I realised there are people who don’t think as deep as I do about the coffee experience and to those people this post is most likely sounding like a deranged rant of an eccentric compulsive BUT to my fellow coffee lovers it’s perfectly compos mentis and “if you know, you know” 

” Alchemy – a seemingly magical process of transformation, creation or combination ”


And Bostons TP do not disappoint on the food side either, especially the evert growing selection of Gluten-free cake! But that’s a whole other blog for a whole other day and I may have to go back and take some more pictures and drink some more coffee in the mean time! 
Ciao x

Gluten-free chocolate donut bites


Ok, I know what youre thinking…. These arent exactly “clean” but it’s the weekend and I woke up this morning with no peanut butter in the household! That’s my excuse and ravenous for something sweet along side my coffee this morning, not wanting to leave the house because the rugby is on at 11, I decided to whip up these absolute dreams and it only took 5-10 mins! 


Ingredients: 

Gluten free plain flour – one cup 

Baking powder – one table spoon

Milk – add until forms a dough (you can use water or any kind of milk preferred, I find milk makes them more fluffy) 

Ground almond – 1/4 cup 

Chopped chocolate of any kind, cut into small squares.

Method:

Mix all together in a bowl and add just enough water/milk to form a sticky yet knead-able  dough. Take enough to make a small ball, flatten it in your hand and place the chocolate square in the middle. Roll the chocolate inside then fry for about one min in oil, constantly turning whilst it’s frying. Once golden brown, place into sugar and roll until covered. 

VERY naughty but hey it’s Saturday!
