While other high-street outlets struggle, the ubiquitous British chain is doing so well that business is booming even in the spiritual home of the deli Just after 8am, in the bowels of Manhattans concrete rabbit warren Penn Station, there are a lot of queues. Long lines of travellers wait for the Long Island Rail Road and Amtrak trains; for the bathrooms where dozens of homeless people spend the night; and for food and drinks outside Dunkin Donuts, Starbucks and Pret a Manger. The line for the French-sounding-but-British-owned Pret is longer than that for any of the other food chains. Thats no surprise as the outlet,Read More →

I’m sure you heard of the mighty acai berry by now. And by heard of it, I mean you probably don’t know it’s a berry from South American rainforests, and you have no idea how to pronounce it, but acai bowls definitely blow up your Instagram feed lately, and you’re wondering what they’re about. I don’t blame you. Those bowls are so pretty! They’re heaped with nuts, granola, bananas, strawberries and blueberries, and sometimes, there’s peanut butter drizzled on top. Not following?

Its been five years, and the thoughts still consume my mind. Not as much as they used to, but the little voices inside my head, the ones that yell at me about the food I eat, still exist.

Its been five years of doctors appointments, arguments, tears, therapists, highs and lows five years of people thinking Im vain, obsessed, and selfish. Ive had to deal with people judging me on my weight fluctuations and how frequently I go to the gym; whether I choose that side of fries or opt for theRead More →

  When you think about fast food, what comes to mind? If you’re like me, you probably start salivating as you imagine greasy burgers, gloriously deep-fried onion rings, and calorie-laden milkshakes. Yum. Basically, this. Image via Thinkstock. A new fast food restaurant in California is aiming to broaden that image by introducing a vegetarian option. Andy and Rachel Berliner, the founders of Amy’s Kitchen, originally launched their line of vegetarian frozen, canned, and prepackaged foods in grocery stores (you’ve probably seen Amy’s organic, vegetarian, and vegan food in your local grocery store) after they found themselves frustrated with the vegetarian options available at the time.Read More →

I love sweets and desserts of all kind, but now that summer is fast approaching, Im constantly on the lookout for lighter treats to accompany fresh and dainty warm-weather meals. After all, when youre supping on something nourishing and simple like this easy dish of salmon and veggies, you dont necessarily want a heavy dessert weighing down your palette. Thats why Im all about recipes that take the warmth and richness of classic desserts, and repackage them into a more nimble form perfectly suited to lazy evenings dining by candlelight, with a chorus of peepers serenading you. My latest go-to is a flaky, golden-brown berryRead More →

Yes, Michelin starred food can be cheap. Thats because a lot more than money goes into great dining To will soon open an outpost in Manhattan will be music to the ears of many of these self-anointed foodies. And why not: theres no doubt that increasing the accessibility of delicious cuisine is a positive thing. But Im still unconvinced that it will be a reason to spend precious minutes of life queueing. When it comes to discerning the quality of food, Im convinced that many people are suffering from quite a lot of delusion that we really know the difference between dishes that are greatRead More →
