Mai Tai Masterclasses

Here at The Handbook, we all love a good cocktail, so when we found out about this Mai Tai Masterclass gracing the London scene, we just knew we had to tell you about it! London’s first Polynesian inspired restaurant and bar, Trader Vic’s, is launching a series of ‘Rum Cocktail Master Classes’ for the summer. Trader Vic’s is known worldwide for its famous 1944 Mai Tai cocktail, which boasts rum as a main ingredient and so is the perfect venue for those wishing to learn from the experts! The master class will begin with an introduction to the world of rum. […]

Cinnamon Kitchen Meets Pizza Pilgrims

This is the sort of culture clash that we like to hear about, a meeting of east meets west with the team up between Indian restaurant Cinnamon Kitchen and the Italian inspired Pizza Pilgrims. From the 3rd to the 7th August the Pizza Pilgrims will be parking their Piaggio van in Cinnamon Kitchen’s alfresco terrace to serve up pizzas from noon until 9pm each day. As you can guess these pizzas aren’t your typical Italian offering, nope instead you’ll find Tandoori Chicken, green chilli and cheese and lamb Rogan Josh calzone.  They’re all priced the same too (a mere £8) […]

Fishdog Pop-up

Normally seen at street food markets, festivals and of course in the signature 1971 Citroen H Van, Fishdog from Mark Hix is staying put (well for three weeks) with the start of their residency at Farringdon’s much loved pub, The Hat and Tun next week. Running every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evening from the 29th July – 14th August, they’ll be serving up seriously good seafood but with their comfort food twist. You’ll find a selection of their signature dishes including spicy crab chips and the cheekily named Holy F***ed fish balls, croquettes served with spicy mayonnaise made from another […]

Alcoholic Architecture

The thing about technology is that it’s made us all pretty lazy people. Emojis have replaced actual sentences and Snapchat just updated their app so that you only have to tap the screen to view snaps, rather than hold down your finger. Now it would seem that even lifting a drink is too much effort for us, and to be honest, we’re not really complaining. This summer, the creative (read: insane) people behind Bompas & Parr are opening a bar that’s filled with alcohol vapour and swaying patrons. Rather than getting a little too merry the old fashioned way, all […]

Corrigan’s Mayfair – What We Thought

The Handbook recently reviewed Richard Corrigan’s restaurant Bentley’s and as we are all about being inclusive, we decided it was only right that we also reviewed its sister venue, Corrigan’s…nothing to do with the promise of more food, we swear. Corrigan’s is an upmarket venue in Mayfair and I was excited to return to the venue after not having eaten there for a while. It is safe to say that I was not disappointed and left feeling impressed and oh so full. Richard Corrigan is a renowned and multi-award winning chef who has been cooking since he was a youngster.

This summer, you can experience a taste of Cuba without actually having to leave the country, thanks to the new Cuban garden terrace at Boisdale!
