Wright Brothers @ Kingly Court, London

Our last meal in London – very satisfying and very value for money!IMG_3456 IMG_3442 IMG_3443 IMG_3445 IMG_3459 IMG_3460 These prawns were so good we had a second helping but I still didn’t get to eat.IMG_3462

Fresh & tasty seafood platter.  Quite a big portion for two.IMG_3461 IMG_3463 IMG_3465 IMG_3466 Not the best kind of lava cake and we were too full.IMG_3467 This was really good and refreshing, and with alcohol.IMG_3471

Note: Kingly Court has many restaurants and bars, great ambience, worth checking this place out.IMG_3455 IMG_3450

Macarons #2

It has been a long long time since I last tried to make macarons … thought about it many time and finally pulled myself together to give it another try.

Once again I turned to Not So Humble Pie for help on the cookies and the filling – lemon mascarpone cheese.

The batter looked a bit thin to me, I suspect my egg white was under beaten. I left them to sit for an hour before baking.


These were from two batches of baking.  The top batch was left to cook a bit longer than 25mins and turned brown.  The top of the cookies looked much much better than my first try.


The bottoms looked a bit under cooked even though they were all in the oven for over 20mins


Made lemon with the leftover egg yolk.

They looked and tasted good when freshly made but some how after keeping in the fridge for a day, it turned soft.  Not sure if it is because of the filling…
