I decided to take it easy this weekend since I am still not well. Luckily ELLE and Vogue arrived last week so there is lots of fun reading to be done, the September issues are big. I also have to plan next week’s holidays in the motherland and would like to start reading Lord Jim again.
After few hours of pottering around the house we decided to pop to Patisserie Macaron to buy bread and check out the new gelateria Nardulli in Clapham. The ice cream was amazing. I have not had better ice cream in London, I swear. I had mango sorbet and hazelnut ice cream, maybe not a great combo but I wanted to test the place and I am going back, hopefully tomorrow!
My mother in law sent me some delicious home made lemon curd and I made lemon tarts today. As usual I overcooked the pastry (I baked it blind for a little before realizing that I don’t need to do that). They were very nice anyway. The pastry is from Jamie Oliver’s first book.
