It really has been another bumper two months for Food Glorious Food with a whole host of reviewing taking place, for which I am eternally grateful. I love sharing all the latest food products, events and cookbooks and hope you are inspired by my latest round up of Foodie Goodies. Pickliz are a food company specialising in supplying a Haitian Spicy Condiment. In all honesty, I've never heard of Pickliz before, but that's the beauty of Twitter, you can discover new and exciting food brands. Pickliz is eaten throughout Haiti and is a fiery condiment made using my favourite peppers, Scotch Bonnet Peppers.  I love the theme behind this brand "Warmth in the Cold" and that what the picklz. The picked scotch bonnet (alongside carrots, onions and cabbage) perfect accompaniment to jazz up your meats and veggies. I've served mine with BBQ ribs, alongside having a good dollop with rice dishes.  Pickle Hotel Chocolat It seems that a month does not go by without me reviewing products from luxury chocolatiers, Hotel Chocolat - which is just the way I like it. For Easter I was  treated with this incredibly rich and decadent Rocky Road Easter Eggs. Easter Eggs have never tasted so good! I'll be hosting another fabulous giveaway from Hotel Chocolat on my blog soon. Spice Kitchen Spice Kitchen have been long supporters of my blog and are quickly becoming the UK leading pace for luxury and authentic Indian Spices. I was sent a selection of their new (and exciting) spices. New flavours include Sri Lankan Spice Mix, Chinese Spice Blend, Rasel Hazelnut, Baharat and my favourite jerk seasoning, amongst others. Chili and Ginger Noodles with Pork Belly using their Chinese Spice.  Stellar Tate The kitchen geniuses behind the Stellar Tate range launched a set on innovative stackable casserole dishes and pans. I was lucky to review their style casserole pan. Take a look on the link for my full review. Casserole Pan Russel Hobbs Slice and Go. With all the healthy eating that is the current of vogue at present, I was incredibly pleased to review Russel Hobbs Slice and Go. This is the perfect machine for shredding and perfectly grating vegetables. Who knew vegetables could be so attractive? Olive It I was fortunate enough to be able to spend an evening cooking with renowned Spanish chef Omar Allibhoy. We served a 3 course meal in-cooperating olives. I will be sharing this on my blog very shortly...... watch this space. Wrapchic: The Indian Burrito Located in the Bullring, Birmingham, Wrapchic offer a fusion of Indian and Mexican cuisine, all served perfectly for lunchtime. All recipes are cooked in a centrally location and offer beautiful lunches. Wrapchic started off with 1 outlet two years ago, they now have 12 outlets which I think is in part due to the wonderful food that is served here. Their main target marker is the lunch market, which I think is handy when you want a quick bite when at work or shopping. There is also a new breakfast menu, a perfect way to start the day. I tried the fish malabari (pangasius fish in a tangy malabari sauce) which was absolutely delicious. I can't wait to visit again :-) x  Wrapchic. Wrapchic. Wrapchic. Botanist restaurant I was excited and very pleased to review the newly launched Botanist restaurant in Birmingham. The decor is simply stunning and the food divine. Take a look at my full review on the link. Cookbook reviews.  I love reviewing cookbooks and have reviewed two very recently, Great British Cooking and Vanilla Table. Take a look at my review post, hopefully you will be inspired to add another addition to your cookbook shelves. xxx

  • The Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies sold at Blue Bottle Coffee are a favorite of mine. I like to sit in the sun on the beautiful stone slab benches across from the Blue Bottle Coffee kiosk in Hayes Valley, San Francisco with a macchiato a snickerdoodle to share. This, the first Blue Bottle Coffee location, is just a short walk from my house in an alleyway. A not-so-secret spot, slightly off the main strip – source of excellent coffee and cookies! I also love to have lazy breakfasts beneath the tall ceilings, light streaking through the massive windows, in their cafe at Mint Plaza. I’ve known there was a Blue Bottle Coffee book in the works, and each time I go, I find myself uttering the same nine words, usually with my mouth full – I really hope this recipe is in the book. In addition to their coffee, which I’m more than happy to brave a line for, I have a list of go-to favorites from their beautifully concise and inspired menu. My hope was that all would be in the book: these Saffron-Vanilla Snickerdoodles, the Pickled Fennel Egg Salad, the Sesame Absinthe Cigars, and Catalan Eggs with Braised Greens. Check, check, check, and check! Every one is in the book. And like all things Blue Bottle, this is worth the wait. The Best Snickerdoodle Cookies The book will be released October 9th (I originally posted this in 2012), but I’ve been hassling Ten Speed to get me an early copy for months. In part because I wanted to bump up my coffee know-how, but (no surprise) I was particularly excited about the recipes – the Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies were first up. In contrast to traditional snickerdoodles, Caitlin describes them as having “an unusual butterscotch flavor from the combination of saffron, brown sugar and vanilla.” If you love snickerdoodles, please try these! Now, I know these cookies well, and this recipe delivered a version that is a dead-ringer of the original. The same as the ones I would buy at the kiosk – buckle in the middle, kiss of saffron, a thin golden crust that gives way to a fudge-textured center. Thank you. Arguably the best snickerdoodle cookies I’ve ever had. I made a double batch for a family trip to Lake Tahoe last week – baking half for the drive there, freezing the remaining pre-scooped dough to bake at the cabin. Everyone loved them. I hope you like these as much as I do, make a double batch and freeze half of the pre-scooped dough for later baking. And be sure to measure the saffron carefully -it’s easy to go too light/heavy. xo -h Continue reading Saffron Vanilla Snickerdoodle Cookies on 101 Cookbooks
