Chi Kitchen’s Special ‘Tai Chi’ menu

A Tai Chi menu at a restaurant? No, it is not a list of Tai Chi moves to choose from, but a menu of healthy Asian dishes. The menu has been created by Executive Chef Ping Coombes, of Masterchef fame, aiming to embrace the philosophy of Tai Chi in food form. The menu promotes health, wellbeing and most importantly, balance – much like Tai Chi. So to balance out the healthy chicken and Chinese herb soup with goji berries, enjoy a deep fried tuna and avocado sushi roll. Or to balance out the quinoa salad with cucumber, cherry tomato, egg, […]

Create the Menus at Craft London

Quite often, it’s easy to forget the developmental process behind a dish at a restaurant, but excellence isn’t created overnight; it is a long road from start to finish for that perfect dish. Each Tuesday, the kitchen team at Craft will give opportunity to get involved in that process, so you’ll taste dishes that are either still in development or only available in small quantity. Up to eight courses will be served to guests who’ll then be able to engage with the chefs themselves, offering feedback and potentially impacting what will become the final dish! Seasonality is key in Test […]

Mezze Mondays at Dock Kitchen

It might be Friday today, but let’s talk about Mondays. We’re not just playing devil’s advocate when we say Monday is actually becoming one of our favourite days. Why? Because you’re allowed to be a little slack, you’re allowed to not have quite got over the weekend and because everyone thinks Mondays are bad, there are lots of great things going on to remedy it. Take Stevie Parle’s West London restaurant, Dock Kitchen for example, they’re launching Mezze Mondays next week. Having travelled extensively from Greece to Lebanon looking for exciting plates and small dishes they’ll be creating a menu […]

Hot Cocktails at The Goring’s Winter Pop-Up Terrace

Christmas Day may be over but that doesn’t mean the festive pop-ups have ended too. Although it began back at the end of November, The Goring’s Cresta Run bar is sticking round until February, long after the indulgence has worn off… The Goring (Kate Middleton’s hotel of choice for her wedding night) is long established as one of London’s most exclusive hotels, so throw in a little old school apres ski inspired by the glamour of St. Moritz and you’re on to a winner.

Gaucho’s Boxing Day Brunch

Just like Christmas Day, Boxing Day has its traditions. We gorge on sandwiches made from leftovers and all those chocolate boxes we got from family members who didn’t know what to get us. This is also done from the comfort of our favourite spot on the sofa; but this year may well be the year for leaving tradition for a while – it has been a rollercoaster of a year anyway – because Gaucho are continuing the festivities with their Boxing Day brunch. The menu has been designed so diners can order any dish as many times as they like, […]
