The Judgement of St. James

Now 34 years since it took place, The Judgement of Paris shook the wine world to it’s very core. Gathering together eleven wine experts and pitting French Bordeaux against Californian Cabernat Sauvignon, the war was on to discover which wine was superior. Wine drunk, blindfolds untied, the results (to the dismay of the French wine industry) proved the New World Californian wine the victor on all counts. Sacre Bleu!   In homage to this momentous wine event the new St James’s Restaurant Avenue will partner up with award winning wine merchants Berry Bros. & Rudd to create their own spin […]

Head Chef Tommy Boland Joins Almeida

The seasons are changing and we have embraced it with welcoming pasty arms; in the spirit of change, London restaurant Almeida, has also had a change but in their case it took place in the kitchen. Tommy Boland will be the new head chef, bringing with him his experience from the kitchens at The Square, Le Cinq in Paris and Tom Aikens.  He has created an ingredient led menu which will offer simple British food with French influences. Think Pan Fried Sea Bream with farfalle, clams and sea vegetable for mains and Chocolate and Jaffa Pave, Orange Sorbet, Muscavado Crumble […]

Culinary Mischief: Review

The other day we told you about Culinary Mischief – the underground dining experience presented by iL Tocco Food set up by chef Gabriele Bertaccini, and since their next event was to be held in London, we thought we would go down and join in with the feast and report back. The location was announced the day before to keep and element of secrecy to the event – well it is underground dining after all – and we found out that we were going to be dining in the Library at the London Marriott Hotel, County Hall in Westminster. Having […]

Pont St at Belgraves Hotel Review

Pont ST at Belgraves Hotel is a restaurant that promises beautifully prepared seasonal fare in a beautiful Knightsbridge location, it was established as a replacement to the hotel’s previous HIX Belgravia. With a kitchen headed by Sophie Michell of TV’s ‘Cook Yourself Thin’ fame, she promises a ‘distinct style’ of light seafood, drawing inspiration from Californian, Australian and Mediterranean sources. Based around seasonal fare, done simply, this passion for food suggested an eclectic range of dishes which piqued our curiosity instantly. Coupled with an interior, designed by Tara Bernerd, the venue promised an elegant evening ahead. With our expectations well and […]

The Cat & Mutton

It’s hard to imagine Hackney as the countryside but back in the 1600s, the sight of farmers driving their sheep across London Fields to Smithfield Market for slaughter was as common as people getting slaughtered there on a Thursday night. The soon to be relaunched (it's open again on the 11th April)  Cat & Mutton pub, originally frequented by aforementioned farmers, is named after a bridge on Regent’s Canal, along which sailed coal barges knows as ‘cats’. So historical detour aside, the pub’s new owner is Tom Gibson who runs  Vogue House’s Dalston outpost, Ruby’s on Stoke Newington Road and while the […]

Champagne Jacquart 50th Anniversary

The Handbook joined Champagne Jacquart on their trip across the channel to Reims to visit their house for a little bit of wine tasting and a whole lot of Champagne to celebrate the 50th anniversary of  Champagne Jacquart this year. But first to food, arriving in Paris we headed straight to Mary Goodnight, a Thai restaurant in the 16th district of the city. Having been built in a former train station, the restaurant was surprisingly intimate, I ate sticky pork with rice and mille feuille –separately of course, together would be a little interesting… In the morning we set off […]

Cartizze

A cocktail bar, named after a Prosecco making vineyard, is set to open on 8th April and will be serving luxe Bellinis and aperitivos in an art deco setting with dip-dyed oak panelling, soft lilac and blue leathers and art by Simone Webb. The cocktail list has been developed by Richard Wood, the UK winner of Bombay Sapphire’s ‘World’s Most Imaginative Bartender’ 2014, so while we’re sure he can also manage a G&T, his signature pour is Olive Oil Gin Fizz. You might prefer the Truffled Liquorice Sour though (whiskey, lemon, liquorice, egg white and truffle oil). Aperitivos include the Sgroppino – […]

Skinny Cocktails at Shaka Zulu

‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ goes the classic saying, in lieu of that we think that cocktails must come a close second. They are with you for the good times (champagne cocktails at the Zetter Townhouse), the bad times (Bam Bam’s at Whetherspoons) and all the in-between (becoming a Pimm’s mixologist wizard every summer). The only drawback, as with most delicious activities, is that the tasty treats are chock full of hidden calories (we won’t tell you how many!). To help us keep our uber fit bikini bodies suitable for public places this summer, our friends at Shaka Zulu […]
