We had a lovely surprise recently! We found out that some of our Finnish friends were heading for a flying visit to London. We wanted to meet up and have a good old chat about the brilliant Home Work Out Challenge, a catch-up and of course some delicious food!
After a little planning and decision making we finally decided on Duck + Waffle, located on the 40th floor of the Heron Tower in Central London. We had heard some pretty tasty things about Duck + Waffle, and we really wanted to try a selection of food that was a little different from the normal light bites of lunch time. Duck + Waffle definitely succeeded here!
We booked ahead to avoid disappointment, as it gets extremely busy. Phew! Glad we did as it was FULL by the time we left! After climbing up some 40 floors… Well, actually it was zooming up in a glass lift that is reminiscent of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory elevator! So cool!
For lunch we ordered a range of different meals, ranging from the signature Duck and Waffles, to pig ear – it was a culinary treat! We were all a little cautious about the BBQ pigs ear, but it was delicious – like amazing. We all ordered slightly different meals so we could all try each others – boy was it good! The fresh bread with anchovies was a particular favourite. Take a look at some of the pics below.
If you are thinking of somewhere a little different for lunch or dinner while in London – check Duck + Waffle out! it’s a great treat and a perfect place to catch up with old friends!
Oh yes, you can probably notice us both wearing our Christmas style jumpers, though Yahaya’s is much more prominent

So the most exciting thing happened! *drum rolls please* We are going to be on Yoghurt Pots! Yes, you heard that right…
Over the summer Total Greek Yoghurt is going to feature us on the side of their delicious greek yoghurt in the UK! We were so excited when we found out – as you can imagine!
One of the coolest things that came out of this was us being able to create our own recipe made with bananas, Granola and hazelnuts! Yum! This recipe has been a favourite of both of ours for years. It’s great for breakfast as its filling, nutritious and tasty – don’t forget quick to make!
We are still experimenting with new recipes too, so if you have any let us know – we would love to try them out! A family member mentioned using Total Greek Yoghurt with home made Indian curry and fresh mint, we have also thought about how great it would taste with pomegranates as a cooling, refreshing summer snack! *runs off to the store to buy them*
Watch out for all things Total Greek Yoghurt + The White List over the Summer. In the mean time Total Greek Yoghurt have photographed our recipe which we wanted to share with you all. It’s so cool to think that the picture above is something we made and that Total Greek Yoghurt are wanting to share it with people! That means that other people will eat our *delicious* recipe! Sounds silly probably? But to us, it is awesome!
As you can imagine, it makes us hungry just looking at it! Next time we have to remember to write our foody posts AFTER food… Not before… Rookie mistake, now the hunger pains have truly kicked in

After our time spent exploring the Atlas Mountains in Morocco we decided to take a city break for a few days, in Marrakech!
Marrakech is amazing! Such a great city.. Completely different to London – not in a bad way at all, just so different. It certainly has much more hustle and bustle and many more little streets and alleyways to get lost in… As you can imagine we got lost, regularly, like every hour!
One of the coolest things that most people think of doing while in Marrakech is visiting the Souks based in the centre. Wow, it is a maze of thousands of the most colourful lanterns, fragrant spices and tea-pots you can ever imagine! We spent a whole day exploring every nook we could find and left with a Tagine and a hand crafted teapot similar to one that was used for us in the Atlas Mountains.
We loved every second of our time in Marrakech! if your heading there, embrace the hustle and bustle but enjoy the quieter areas of the city too… Like the Jardin De Rosier , or the pool So peaceful and pretty! Take a little look at some of our snaps below. We hope you like them!
