St Leonards Small Plates

last Saturday at 8:02 PM

A couple of very good friends moved from Brighton to St Leonards. We love St Leonards and so any excuse to eat our way round there for a day works for me!

Photos of cats and food


Weirdly quiet few weeks for taking pictures. I just can't get my eye in for it at all. It's a bit disheartening looking at my camera roll and seeing the same thing repeatedly.

Tabitha is Eleven


Not sure how this has happened but yep. Eleven. She played a badminton match and chose what she ate all day (so junk pretty much!)

That London


It's half term! I took the day off and we went to see the Fantasy exhibition at the British Library.

Pizza Masterclass at Fatto a Mano


Charlotte got me this little one-shot evening course as a gift and it was fun!



I helped a friend move house yesterday. It was a lot. Was looking forward to a relaxing day today, that didn't really end up being.

You're never done being a Sandwich Artist


We found these Juicy Marbles things in Waitrose a while back and they're our favourite meat alternative. Terrible name though.



Wish I'd taken more photos this month.

Long time, no see


Between work, and the sun setting at 3pm, I haven't been super motivated to take a lot of pictures the last couple of weeks. And I certainly haven't been motivated to yell them into the void.

KGL (kids get lost)


Tabitha has been at PGL this week, so Charlotte and I went to Rye and Hastings for a few days.

The last few weeks


An eye for composition is something that leaves you if you don't use it.

A very busy bank holiday weekend


Went back home to take my mum and aunt out for lunch to celebrate their very-much-deserved retirement. Nearly melted in our hotel room. Went to a beach, a car show, and had some ice cream.

Malayalam, Eastbourne


It's not often that a restaurant is so good that I'll make a specific post about it but there y'go.

Pizza Sunday


Another Pizza Sunday. Told you I'd stop counting. These were the best ones I've made so far.

I made pizza, take three


I made pizza again. This time a cold ferment in the fridge over the course of three days. What a massive improvement to the quality of the dough. Probably not going to number every post. At least not when I can actually reliably succeed at this!

I made pizza, take two


I had another go at making some pizza. Tried a different dough recipe and it seemed to make a huge difference. I also watched a tonne of videos on how to make and stretch dough. It is possible to learn things just by watching...?

I made pizza


I am a horrible cook. Just awful. But we have been watching the Chef's Table Pizza show on Netflix and it made me want to try and make pizza. It appears more successful the further back you stand.

The lost art of the tactical, permissive skive


It's important, every now and again, to treat yourself to a bit of naughtiness. A cheeky little Friday PM skive when you've already finished your todo list and some of next week's, and you've let everyone know you're stepping out. Beautiful.

Pick & Cheese


We saw about this place on Jolly, and I've wanted to take Charlotte there ever since.



Carbs are my favourite; did you know? This isn't only going to be pictures of food, and it's over the course of a month so give me a break (it's still not good 🤫 I know).

What I'm saying is it's another photo dump post.
