Shooting with @chetnamakan proved to be not just fun but also DELICIOUS! Watch the video - now up on YouTube! Link is in my bio. Its Chetna’s recipe for Egg Chops; they’re basically Indian Scotch eggs, except they’re vegetarian and include Indian spices I so adore (cumin + garam masala + ginger + garlic). I brought some of these treats home for @cboals after this shoot and he keeps reminding me how good they were (think that’s a hint for me to make them again?! Chetna, come hang and let’s cook together again!!!) #indianfood #foodwithchetna

This banana cake’s secret ingredient, which makes it oh-so-moist is...ready for it? MAYONNAISE. [Thank you @miglorious for sharing this quirky tip with us all via your Genius Desserts cookbook!!] It really works - this is the most moist banana bread/cake situation I’ve ever eaten! (Says the cook objectively ☺️) I brought a sample to @izyhossack today when we met up to shoot a video for my YouTube channel, and she agreed : mayonnaise may sounds weird but it really works as a tool for moisture! Oh, and it’s crazy delicious ✅

Just posted a new QKatie video about the week I spent in Italy at the end of last month at @comellipaolino! Editing the footage reminded me of a big reason why I love making videos: sometimes it’s just to re-live epic moments of my life! Check out the video, in which I make the case for Friuli being my favorite wine region of Italy and why Comelli winery is such a special one!! #friuli #italytrip #qkatietravels

Reminiscing on the summer days that feel like just the blink of an eye ago! 👁 *blink* Though I must say I’m loving cozy sweater weather and an excuse to drink way too much tea throughout the day 🙌 📷 @cboals

It’s FONDUE time of year — I’ve been waiting!! Today was the first day in London that I’ve felt that proper chill in my bones...what a day for a fondue tasting @neals_yard_dairy! Just above the cheese shop at Borough Market, a group of us gathered to enjoy British cheeses melted together in the fondue pot [my team went with Lancashire, Ogleshield and Rollright added to a Lincolnshire Poacher base], washed down with some mighty fine British wine. Surrounded by the passionate cheesemongers at NYD and some really special local products, I’m even happier than usual to be in London today 🧀🇬🇧🧀🙌

Denver, you surprised me with your awesomeness. @alejandrotorovo gave me this tour around the Colorado city with @springhillsuites by Marriott. #sponsored Seriously, everything from outdoor adventures to destination restaurants, craft beer and art at #rinodistrcit. Loved our buffalo hang time at #danielspark and already want to go back for the noms at @zeppelinstation & @forestroom5. Thanks for a great time @tastemade team #denvercolorado!

You know how a place gets even cooler when you share it with someone else? That's what happened when I gave @alejandrotorovo a tour of my favorite spots in Austin, TX with @springhillsuites by Marriott. #sponsored We hit up all the cool, weird, delicious things Austin has to offer! From quirky finds at @uncommonobjects to eating our way through #raineystreet and imbibing in Sotol @desertdoor, we had such a good time shooting this video with the @tastemade crew and then crashing after a long day at @springhillsuites. Already can't wait to get back to #austintexas.

Editing the latest QKatie @youtube video was like reliving that magical day in Paris! 💫 It was the most fun I’ve had editing a video in a long time. [short excerpt here - watch the whole thing, link in bio!] The Perfect Paris Day, featuring @rebekahpeppler and recipes from her stunning new book “Apéritif: Cocktail Hour the French Way.” Thanks to our apéro friends who joined for this shoot @sliceofpai @hebdomania @luciecamara - bisous! Warning: if you watch the video you’ll begin planning your next trip to Paris.

A week from today @polkapants_ will be popping up in the @ovenly space in NYC! Polka Pants are bespoke chef’s trousers for women but/and they’re multi-functional pants for ladies who move around a lot! Founded by rockstar entrepreneur/ my pal Maxine Thompson -- NYC loves, check out her pop-up and tell her I sent you! 📷 @charlottehuco (who is another happy Polka Pants wearer/supporter!) And another public service announcement: this white wine and olive oil cake I made last night for a dinner party — a @food52 recipe — was a knockout!! Topped with chocolate buttercream...oh yeah. [search ‘Grown-Up Birthday Cake’ on F52 to find it]. And yes, their website is again accessible for those of us in the UK (GDPR issues) — hurray! Happy weekend 🍰👍 #cakerecipe #polkapants #favoritetrousers #dinnerpartycake #f52grams

Back home from Scotland, back home after a month and a half of travel - with just a couple quick touch-downs in London. I’m tired & inspired all at once! Sipping my @la.main.noire golden latte in bed after my alarm went off this morning felt heavenly — prepping to edit the piles and piles of video and audio footage I’ve amassed over the past 6 weeks, it’s nice to slowly tread into the work day. While in Paris last week, I caught up with my culinary school buddy @chefryanmilstein who’s behind the delicious golden latte I’m drinking in this photo...it’s the product of him and his fellow La Main Noire founders @qoffee_with_a_q @lulu.leemonn - and I’m super excited for what they’re doing!! Their products are amazing AND they’re setting forth to open a storefront in Paris!! Their crowd-funding page just launched: check out @la.main.noire and fr.ulule/lamainnoire/. Just contributed; can’t wait to see what these guys do. (Hear a bit from them on this week’s @keepitquirkypodcast!) // Oh, and have a mentioned that in the midst of the craziness we moved back to East London (from NW London)?! Worth it; it feels good to be back 🙌

The “Peanut Butter Crunch Pheasant”: it was buttermilk fried pheasant in a brioche bun with onion jam, crispy bacon, peanut butter, maple mayo and chips. WOW. Scotland does pheasant better than anywhere I’ve ever had any game bird. Just watch the video of me biting into it in the gallery and you can tell I’m legit impressed with this sandwich from @rosteats @bowhousefife. It tasted like a clever (and tastier) spin on an Elvis sandwich. YAS. I had no idea Fife was such a foodie haven — this weekend I’ve taken a sausage-making class and have been schooled on Scotch whiskey and visited farms and tucked into delicious meals left and right. Scotland, I’m not ready to leave you yet!!! @visitscotland #sponsored @welcometofife
