What were your highlights of 2017? We’re guessing it wasn’t the Trump inauguration, the signing of Article 50 or election of Emmanuel Macron. But hopefully you had Mark Hix’s Tales From The Kitchen Library hovering somewhere near the top of your list. However, if you were unlucky enough to miss it, then fear not, it’s back. The format for the series of kitchen collaborations is to put some of the nation’s leading chefs in a kitchen together with chef and restauranteur Mark Hix, enjoy stories of their lives and gorge on a five-course menu, all in the intimate setting of […]
As a child, I didn’t expect to appreciate cartoons and fairytales at the age of 27 just as much as I did when I was five. Perhaps even more so, now that I fully understand all the little quips that went over my innocent head. And don’t get me started on conspiracy theories or how each film is linked… hours have been wasted on that. As a child I also thought I’d never appreciate alcohol, but some things change. Before I digress (further), why am I telling you this? Because there is a fairytale bottomless brunch coming to London. Bringing […]
Another day, another vegan announcement (if you missed yesterday’s you can check it out here) today we’re letting you know that What the Pitta, the UK’s first vegan doner kebab stall is opening their third and flagship branch in Camden on the 9th March. Realising the benefits of a plant-based diet but missing the grilled flavours of Turkish foods, vegan Cem Yildiz, joined forces with friend, Rojdan Gul, whose uncle had been making cult vegan kebabs in Germany for years. The result was What the Pitta and a pop-up in 2016 at The Pump in Shoreditch. The kebabs are made […]
Even the keenest of cooks can sometimes lack a bit of culinary inspiration. We all like to work hard and play hard and occasionally the mere thought of having to slave over a hot stove amongst the chaos of London life can feel overwhelming. So here are some simple and no-nonsense recipes for when you want something delicious to eat, but don’t quite have the time or energy to devote to an elaborate feast (and the Deliveroo app is broken).
Ever wondered what it would be like to eat like The Queen? Not knocking back Dubonnet and picking out corgi hairs like our current monarch, but like the most glorious queen Britain’s had, Queen Victoria? Well now you can, thanks to Blenheim Palace. Led by Executive Chef Billy Bush, the team at the stately home’s The Orangery restaurant have put together a culinary homage to the great lady in the form of an afternoon tea celebrating her life. Over five courses enjoy some of Queen Victoria’s favourite foods, including a mini Victoria sponge, a classic chocolate eclair, strawberry and vanilla […]
After the success of last month’s ‘Critics’ choices’ article we decided that we’d do a roundup of February too! So here is everywhere that the team visited, and reviewed, over the last month. Darcie and May Green Peter Blake, the famous painter, has designed two brightly decorated barges and Daisy Green has lashed them together and created a floating restaurant which Charlotte went to review and was impressed by the antipodean menu. No kangaroo here as Charlotte’s strictly veggie so she gourged on halloumi fries and vegan curry and gave it a casual thumbs up. Check out the full review here… Theo […]
Everyone knows that when it comes to gravity defying acrobatics, jaw-dropping stunts and edge of your seat performances then Cirque du Soleil is at the top of their game. Their latest show OVO is a riot of energy with crazy crickets, amazing ants and flexible fleas and even features a 14m high flying trapeze act, which is the biggest of its kind. You’ve got to be quick if you haven’t seen it yet, as it’s only hanging about until this Sunday (4th March) so really you have to be super quick. Whilst you’re there you can raise a glass of […]
What? Hamilton, it’s the most talked about musical to hit the West End since the Book of Mormon and right now the hottest ticket in town. I didn’t get tickets, the self-defeatist in me came out and I didn’t even try to go get them (that coupled with the fact that I completely forgot), what I did get though was the chance to go to The Lanesborough for the new Hamilton inspired afternoon tea – the Alexander Hamilton Tea. New? Yes, having launched at the start of the year, it’s a chance for those who got tickets to have a […]
