I’m not one to go to Michelin starred restaurants very often as they can be quite pricey and I prefer a laid back dining vibe. However I discovered that the Ledbury (2 Michelin stars) has a great lunch menu offer during the week (£35 – starter, main and dessert) and thought what better way to celebrate the half way mark on researching, writing and testing recipes for my next book than with a little lunch.

Sneak peek at the new cocktail & oyster (plus a few other bar snacks) bar by the Candelaria team. Definitely a (delicious) winning combo!

It was an early touch down in Biarritz from Paris, just a 1 hour 20 flight down to this nook of the Atlantic coast, but seemingly worlds apart at a first glance. The rain was pelting down and at 8am it was still dark and blustery.

By Day 3 of our Madrid adventure, we had fully adopted and adapted to the Spanish schedule; breakfast started at a leisurely 11 onwards, lunch was somewhere around 3pm and dinner wasn’t even conceived of until well after 10.
