Normal service will resume as soon as possible...

School bag, check.

Uniform, check.

Lunchbox, check.

Bundle of nerves, check.

Butterflies, check.

Last Wednesday I packed my bag and went back to school, at Leiths School of Food and Wine. Feeling like a kid again with first day nerves.

My new home from home 

Every year on the first day of school when I really was a kid my Dad brought me to McDonald's. He texted on Wednesday wanting to know who was going to bring me this time? If I'd gone I'd have ordered a supersize happy-delirious meal.

My head is bursting with all the information and I can't wait to share the adventures. It's been a manic few days and did you know that pastry knows when you're afraid of it? It does. It really does.

But for now I'm taking a few days to settle in and trying not to burn/cut or otherwise injure myself or any cooking equipment. The first full update is in the's just warming up. Last cooking analogy, promise. Otherwise this could be a long six months. Oops. 


  1. Looking forward to seeing where this takes you!! Very exciting!

  2. Thanks Paula! You and me both! Who knows where it will all end up...exciting times ahead.
    PS - there's been no twine yet, gutted ;-)

  3. Burning question- what was in the lunchbox on the fist day!!!

    1. Welllllll I must confess it was a very simple wrap! Whoops! Once I get settled in there'll be plenty of Lunchboxes :-)

  4. I can't wait to hear about the course. I miss Mr. Moustache's lunchboxes! Enjoy every minute of it, sounds exciting!

  5. Merci Madame! Mr.M's Lunchboxes will resume shortly! Watch this space :-)
