I was thinking about holiday escapes, when a colleague recommended Koh Chang to me.
The largest island in Thailand, Koh Chang is 60% untouched jungle forest and a national park. This did not surprise me as we drove south east from the pier at Dan Khao and headed towards The Spa Koh Chang Resort; the looming mountains were on the right as the coast stretched out towards the sea on my left.
I first went to Chiangmai in October 2013 and have been itching to go back. It was such a lovely little place where I felt welcome and had a good choice of gluten free restaurants! Continue reading
Back before I moved to Thailand, I would go to my local Thai restaurant in Gravesend and always order the Green Curry! I loved the mix of sweetness with spice, especially combined with an order of coconut rice. Continue reading
Thai Cuisine is popular around the world for its rich use of spices and unique flavours. Here’s a list of common spices you will find in popular dishes.

Snapper is nestled down a backstreet where you can find Cheap Charlie’s off Soi 11. I like this little side street as you can have a nice French meal, Spanish tapas, an Indian curry or delicious fish and then head to The Alchemist for a funky martini or to Cheap Charlie’s if you’re feeling poor.

Bread. We have a love / hate relationship. When I crave it most, I screw it up. When I don’t want it, there’s an abundance of it. We can never find a happy balance. Continue reading
I like sweets and they like me. ‘Nuff said. Sometimes, you just crave sugar, in the form of a moist, chocolately cake. Well my friends, this happened to me recently and as I stood staring down the baking aisle, I decide to take a plunge. I have made the ‘Yes You Can’ chocolate mud cake before and it was pretty damn good. I needed to test out what Orgran had to offer. Continue reading
I have known about this place for quite awhile, but haven’t been to check it out for myself until recently after yoga. I emailed the owner, May, to ask her about gluten free items and she replied with a list of suitable dishes I could have. Heaven! Continue reading
