Light and airy, the focus will be on a bespoke shelving feature that spans the width and height of the arch, behind which will sit the open plan pastry kitchen. As well as window counters and stools, […]

Valle Dell’ Erica Hotel – What We Thought

I know what you’re thinking as you read this review, sat at your desk as your boss sends you yet another ‘high importance’ email. You’re thinking wouldn’t it be great if you could go somewhere where the simple things in life remain just that, without all the complexities of city living? Somewhere where you can watch the sunset without electricity pylons splitting it in two, a place where the water is so transparent that Evian’s clearest would find it hard to compete, and a place where ‘rush hour’ doesn’t exist. Well, I didn’t know such a place could exist either, […]

Curveball: Balham’s New Meatballs

The meatball crusade in London is relatively small in comparison to the burger brigade, but come next week they’ll be a new recruit as Curveball opens in Balham, joining the likes of Balls and Company and Belpassi Bros. in championing the humble meatball. Opened by Hannah Pemberton, author of recipe blog, ‘The Kitchen Alchemist’ and Paul Harris, former CFO of Liberty, the menu is the culmination of their travels, memorable meals they’ve had and fresh British produce. Small plates include the Bomba (chorizo croquettes) whilst larger plates include The Mothership – beef chuck and parmesan meatballs in a four-hour short-rib […]

Dine Up Close and Personal With a Michelin-Starred Chef

We all love eating in Michelin-starred restaurants and we love attempting to recreate the food at home (the key here being ‘attempting’) but sometimes our interpretations of dishes aren’t quite like the real deal… You’ll be wanting to make room on your cookery bookshelf because Michelin starred chef Nathan Outlaw has written up a new cookbook, Home Kitchen. It’s his fourth book but it’s the first to have everything covered – and we mean everything – from meat and fish right through to dessert. He’ll be launching his book with a dinner (how else?!), showcasing some recipes from the book at […]

London’s Greatest Sandwich Festival

Oh a good old sarnie. Sometimes, nothing can beat it. We’ve even dedicated a week to celebrating it. Yep, British Sandwich Week is a thing. And now, so is Sandwich Fest – thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign. The festival will see the best of London’s sandwiches all brought to one courtyard, located on Hackney’s Warburton Street. A coincidence? We like to think not. Expect food from the likes of Brindisa, famed for their chorizo roll; Grill My Cheese, who put gourmet twists on the classic grilled cheese; Le Bao, you know, those fluffy cloud like buns filled with a […]

Monmouth Kitchen: Sophisticated Small Plates in Seven Dials

What: Italy meets South America in the form of contemporary small plates, cocktails and wine. Where: 20 Mercer Street, Seven Dials, WC2H 9HD, www.monmouthkitchen.co.uk New? Monmouth Kitchen opened towards the end of last year, joining sister site, May Fair Kitchen. A third venue has just been announced – Leicester Square Kitchen will open in early May. On the Menu: The menu is split into Italian and South American sections so think arancini, padron peppers and pizzas on one side, and ceviche, tacos and robata grilled meats on the other. A strong cocktail list is suitably authentic so offers pisco, mezcal and tequila-laced concoctions on side and a […]

Cocktails and Coding: The Ultimate Masterclass

The tech industry is booming and code is all the rage but somehow we’ve missed the boat – it seems that even children are more advanced than us when it comes to coding, and the tech industry remains predominantly male. Sanderson has teamed up with coding experts, Code First: Girls, to host a series of tech-focused events, helping women take the reigns in the tech industry and just generally demystify the world of coding. Kicking off the series will be a ‘Women in Tech’ panel discussion, chaired by Holly Brockwell, editor of female-focused tech website gadgette.com. Holly will be joined by […]

Female Chefs Unite for Pink Plates Fundraiser

There are over 86 million photos on Instagram with the hashtag ‘pink’ and the London restaurant scene is proving suitably on trend with pastel pink interiors galore.

It seems people just can’t get enough and we’re about to give you another reason to #pink. Throughout May and June, Exmouth Market restaurant, Moro will lead fundraising efforts across London, operating under the name ‘Pink Plates’. The idea is simple: dine and donate to the […]

Kanada-Ya Duo Open Machiya

Aaron Burgess-Smith and Tony Lam, the duo behind Kanada-Ya, are set to launch their next restaurant, right next to their second Kanada-Ya on Panton street.

Things’ll start with Japanese tapas-style dishes known as kobachi; hotcakes (similar to pancakes but fluffier) and their own take on the popular avocado on toast made from thickly sliced Japanese milk bread, crushed avocado and yuzu juice with furikake seasoning. Lunch and dinner will centre around traditional Japanese dishes such as Gyukatsu, a […]
