So, it’s been a while. I’m fit for execution myself with my poorly organised blog and the inability to post weekly or on a schedule! Gonna get my arse in gear and get back to introducing you to some of my favourites, one death row dinner date at a time.

Chloe is being sentenced to death by lethal injection for eating peanut butter, tomato sauce and cheddar cheese sarnies. There is no excuse for that.

“A really decent bloody mary with good garnishes. As I can’t eat normal bread and I’m going to die anyway, I would then have a slice of really nice sourdough probably from Flint Owl Bakery – with smashed avocado, salt, pepper and lemon juice. I’d have 2 runny boiled eggs using proper organic eggs with orange yolks and have streaky bacon for dipping. And finally I would have creamy, garlic and herb mushrooms with shaved truffle on another piece of good sourdough. I usually have big breakfasts, so yes this is what I would have!”

“It’s got to have to be fish and chips. I grew up with having these every Friday and they’re still a favourite. If they were in new Zealand I would get a side of green lipped mussels and a large glass of Marlborough sauvignon blanc.”

“12 bluff oysters (a southern town in NZ with some of the best oysters in the world) with shallot vinegar and a glass of champagne. 6 is never enough and I can never afford 12!”

“A proper Neopolitan pizza (not gluten free I’m dying remember) with porcetta, artichokes, olives and mozzarella. A side of truffle parmesan triple cooked chips. Would probably have an expensive bottle of creamy buttery Chardonnay.”

“A cheeseboard with French camembert, brie with truffle honey, a good English cheddar and seeded crackers. Serve it with a tomato chutney and a decent glass of French Bordeaux wine.”

“You literally are what you eat. Think about it. Be delicious!”

Chloe is possibly the classiest person I’ve had on Death Row so far – including wine pairings with her meals, can’t have her showing me up. Put her to sleep!
