Smokin’ Tiramisu, Bohemia Style

Last week my cousins Betty and Arabella were free from school due to half term, the lucky devils. I picked them up in the morning and whisked them off for a day of fun; reading at the library (not so fun for Arabella), lunch (not so fun for Betty) and dressing up at Grandma’s house (fun for all!)


Meet Betty. We started off at her favourite place – the Jubilee Library in Brighton.



And here’s Arabella with Betty.


Determined not to let the rain spoil our day we marched across town, kitted out in rain coats and umbrellas until we arrived at our favourite place for lunch – Bohemia. Betty even nearly took off a few times here and there like Mary Poppins with her umbrella.

Fish Cakes – YUM


Betty ordered the Macaroni Cheese. It was so good she had to fight off Bella and I with our intruding forks to get a mouthful.


And Arabella, with no need to look at the menu, ordered the Fish and Chips presented in the Bohemia Newspaper.


Just as we were about to pile on our layers of soggy coats, three tiramisu’s were being brought over our way. We all stopped and stared on in envy, thinking they were for the people next to us but to our surprise they were for us! My mum had ordered them for us as a surprise. Next thing we knew our table flooded with smoke from the desserts – there’s dry ice in a glass container underneath the tiramisu bowl so if you pour cold water onto it all the smoke emerges. It looked beautiful as soon as the smoke slowly dispersed, where you could see a glimmer of the pink raspberries on top. 


The rain finally got the better of us so we went back to our Grandmothers house. Sorry if you’re reading this from Florida Grandma, but we raided your wardrobe for your old ball gowns to prance around in! I used to do this when I was Betty’s age so I knew she would love it, trying on all of the pretty shoes and dresses that only adults can wear. 

She may have to wait a few more years to fit into them…
