Say hello, or kon’nichiwa, to the hottest new afternoon tea on the block.

Workout Woes? Be:Fit London is back!

Finding it hard to get motivated, stay on track, or even be bothered to workout? You aren’t alone. Apparently, only one in five women in the UK do enough exercise to stay fit and healthy. This is due to a number of reasons, from continued self-esteem issues, to a lack of non-competitive environments for women to exercise in. Whilst many of us talk about changing, it’s time to actually do something about it. That’s where Be: FIT festival comes in. Aiming to break down these limitations, the festival creates a space for women to come together in solidarity; to support and […]

Take a walk through history this spring on Savile Row. Each tailor has produced an outfit for fictional 1920’s hotelier Jimmy Beaumont, invented by Beaumont hotel founder and CEO, Jeremy King OBE to inform guests of the interior design of the iconic 1926 hotel building. During the war, American-born Jimmy discovered the tailors on Savile Row and developed a weakness for their quality clothing. Jimmy could regularly be seen walking around his hotel in his 3 button suit with double breasted collar with a Yale tie, however he did insist on American stripes rather than British stripes when it came […]

What you probably weren’t stopped from having was pasta though, probably because you never asked for it – but just think of how good it would be at 10am, a little carby goodness? Stevie Parle thinks so too, because at his latest restaurant, Palatino, they have just launched their breakfast menu and it includes buccatini carbonara. Yep, you can now have carbonara for breakfast. If you can’t get your head round that, then other dishes include salt cod […]

River Cottage Residency at The Imperial

We just Googled how long it would take us to get to the award-winning River Cottage from The Handbook HQ. Apparently, it’s somewhere between 5 and 13 hours, unless we paid an unholy amount and flew. Basically, it takes rather a long time to get to there, it isn’t somewhere we can just visit for the evening, which is a shame. So, it’s rather good isn’t it that Steven Lamb, the curing and smoking expert is coming to London to cook up a six -course tasting menu at The Imperial. Following on from the success of last year, he’ll be […]
