Raw Supper Club

Whoever discovered that courgettes could be substituted for spaghetti, cauliflower for rice and cashews for cream has a lot to answer for. No longer associated with dreadlocked hippies, raw and vegan food is now hugely popular and even if you don’t need to eat this way for dietary purposes, many of us have enjoyed quinoa in our salads and kale in our smoothies to boost our green intake and dust off our imaginary halos. Lorena Loriato, chef behind London’s hottest raw (oxymoron, much?!) cafés Nama and Tanya’s Chelsea, MightyBee and Transition Zone (Fulham’s hippest fitness studio), is hosting a supper-club […]

LFW Macarons at Yauatcha

Today marks the start of London Fashion Week, so we hope you’re looking your best. You are? Great. Now our favourite way to celebrate anything is by eating of course, sporting event – eat, festival – eat, fashion – eat. And this year to celebrate LFW moving to Soho, Yauatcha have collaborated with fashion designer Charlie May to create a limited-edition range of macarons and a petit gateau that reflect her SS16 collection that will be on show this week. These macarons aren’t in the usual rainbow colours, instead they are in the neutral and dark hues that emulate the […]

Flavour-altering Pop-Up Cafe

Do you eat all the fruit in the bottom of a glass of Pimm’s but leave the bitter lemon because even the thought of eating it makes you wince? We do. An exciting culinary experiment is taking place where nothing is quite as it seems. Sour will taste sweet in a venture that sounds very Heston Blumenthal-esque; we are slightly expecting clouds of smoke and flying doves when we visit The Attendant. Sound familiar? You probably know of The Attendant as London’s most unusual cafe. A converted Victorian public toilet down steps in the heart of Fitzrovia, The Attendant’s latest […]

Top 5 Spiciest Places to Eat in London

Sharp tongued is a thing but how about rubber tongued? The expression, just created by me, sums up some people’s ability to consume incredibly hot foods without so much as a moistened forehead. Now if the words “scoville rating” gets your heart racing for all the right reasons then make sure you get working through our guide of the spiciest places to eat in London.

OktoberFest comes to London

We think that October should officially be renamed Oktober, in honour of annual German festival OktoberFest, which brings together a delicious mix of sausages and beer. Somehow the name makes it entirely acceptable – if not a requirement – to eat as many Würstel as we can handle in 4 days, surrounded by stein-drinking, Lederhosen-clad men and Dirndl-dressed women. We find it hard to believe that OktoberFest is only debuting in London this year. Before now, 6 million beer-mad fans have made the trip to Munich to enjoy the traditional festivities, first held in 1810 to celebrate the royal wedding […]

The Rooftop STOREY continues

There’s something about al fresco dining in the colder months that makes us feel like we’re in a ski resort. Wrapped up in big scarves with great company and great food is a pretty ideal situation for something a little different and luckily for us, STOREYS West London are extending their summer rooftop sessions until mid-October so we are saying goodbye beach body, hello burgers and subs. Housed on the former BBC building’s multi-storey carpark, visit whilst you can because in 2017 it will be transformed into a new development including homes, gym and restaurants, with the rooftop turning into a […]

GAIL’s Bakery Garden Party

The smell of hot bread and pastries is probably one of the best there is, so we count neighbours of GAIL’s artisan bakeries as very lucky people. Luckier still, neighbours of their Hampstead store are this year invited to their annual Garden Party, now in it’s tenth year! We daren’t think about how many loaves we have consumed in that time… The garden/street party began as GAIL’s way of saying thank you to their local community for supporting them – although we think it works both ways and a lot of people want to thank them for their morning kickstart […]

The Spirit Social Winter Series

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again; *whisper it* summer’s over. Whilst autumn may have you reaching for the mulled wine or a comforting Bailey’s by the fire, Duppy Share rum are ensuring you can keep with you a bit of summer warmth with a series of pop-up bar events from October to December. Named after Caribbean ghost, Duppy, who, as legend has it, used to take the best of the evaporated liquid from the barrels as the rum aged – known as the Duppy Share. Canny little thing. This playfulness is reflected in the mix of cocktails being […]

Party like it’s 1920

The 1920s conjures images of elegance, opulence, flapper girls, men in trilbies and if the Great Gatsby is anything to go by, partying. Ok so we can’t take you back to the 1920s, we aren’t that clever (…yet), but we can let you know that this Saturday party experts Bourne & Hollingsworth are hosting their prohibition party in a secret location in East London. Women don your pearls and fur (of the faux kind of course) stoles, men slick back your hair and grab your braces  need inspiration then look to Downton Abbey- early series of course, Brideshead Revisited and […]
