Lambeth’s New Restaurant: Florentine

An ostrich egg is the equivalent of two dozen chicken eggs. That’s a lot of egg. It’s enough for a horde, which is why at new restaurant, Florentine you’ll find it being served for six people with generous helpings of tomatoes, bacon, Portobello mushrooms, sausages and black pudding. You’ll need six people, not only because of its size but also because it’s going to set you back £65 and that is too much for anyone’s breakfast. Opening in Lambeth next week, Florentine will champion fresh, seasonal, all-day dining. Starters include the likes of lamb and cumin meatballs in tomato sauce; […]

Rick Stein Opens His First London Restaurant

Up until a couple of years ago, Rick Stein didn’t think he would open a restaurant in London and us Londoners, would have to be content with heading to Winchester to visit his nearest restaurant (which is only an hour from Waterloo and an excellent city, if you want a trip); that was until he came across The Depot in Barnes. Being not too far from his home in Chiswick and with the perfect riverside setting, Rick settled on the site, a former stable and coach house and steam engine shed and tomorrow will see it opening as Rick Stein […]

Coyote Ugly Themed Bar Opens in Soho

There’s a new joint in town and it has great night out written all over it…not literally, it’s actually called Dirty Harry’s. Opening on Wardour Street, it’s harking back to the 90’s and channelling the Coyote Ugly vibes. It’s all about burgers, bourbon and bar top performances (that last one doesn’t quite roll off the tongue). Choreographed by Paulette Minott who has worked with the likes of Neo, Rihanna and Craig David, Harry’s Honey will perform on the bar three times a night and rumour has it they will spray you with beer too.

Heinz Baked Beanz Pop-Up Bar at Selfridges

Beans, beans, good for your heart, the more you eat, the more you… Ok, enough with the bodily functions. The UK’s favourite tinned beans (or should we say the UK’s only tinned beans?) are this year celebrating 50 years since the slogan ‘Beanz Meanz Heinz’ was first penned – a little saying that has become iconic on those bluey/green cans of joy. Two million people a day enjoy Heinz beans and a can is sold in the UK every 17 seconds so it’s fitting that the occasion is being celebrated at one of the UKs most iconic department stores. Heinz […]

The Handbook Meets Dominique Ansel

Dominique Ansel is the man behind one of the most talked about foodie creations in recent history, we are of course talking about the Cronut ®, the delicious croissant, doughnut hybrid. Having opened his bakery in London last year, we caught up with him to talk all things indulgent, because there is a lot more to his repertoire than the Cronut ®. You’re mainly known for the Cronut ® did you think it was ever going to be as successful as it is? This is a question I get asked often. And I don’t think anyone could’ve imagined that the Cronut® would be […]

What stands at a metre high, weighs over eleven stone and is edible? It’s Hotel Café Royal’s Easter egg. Obviously. Executive Pastry Chef, Sarah Barber, has gone all out this year with the Easter offerings by creating an incredible Easter egg made from a Valrhona chocolate shell, filled with gold Dulcey pecan nut praline and painted in edible chocolate gold leaf. It takes three days to make and will set you back a mere £600 (we’re not sure if it is London’s most expensive Easter egg but let’s not get pedantic here).  There will also be one on display in […]

Grill My Cheese X Ben’s Canteen

Life is great. Cheese is better. The words that Nisha and Nishma of Grill My Cheese swear by and to be honest, with the amount of cheese we consume, the words we live by too.

So, it’s 50% burger, 50% cheese toastie and 100% the thing that dreams are made of. To go with it they […]
