Last year, I shared Welovetobrunch's favourite spots in London in this post. Since brunch is pretty much my favourite meal and at weekends you will most likely find me trying a new brunch place, I decided to list my new favourite discoveries- which I believe you should have on your list if you are planning a trip to London.Read More
I have just come back from a long weekend in Warsaw, the capital of Poland, I was invited by Warsaw Tourist Office to experience the food scene and, in specific, Restaurant Week. What is Restaurant Week? A culinary festival where a selection of the best restaurants in Poland offers a three-course meal for 39 zt (8 pounds), not including drinks. It is a organised by a group of culinary and gastronomical enthusiasts, it takes place in over 20 cities in Poland aiming to celebrate the food culture in each city, to encourage people to explore the restaurants in their cities and promote Poland as a destination for food lovers (and who doesnt love good food?).
How does it work? Bookings for each restaurant are open on the website a couple of weeks before the festival starts, there one can see the set menu offered by each restaurant and select date and time of the visit.Read More
I live and work in West London, so when I venture to central London I usually feel like a tourist in my own city and, at the same time, I am reminded of how much I love London and why I love this city so much. At the beginning of April, I spent the perfect Sunday just doing that and was also lucky enough to have great weather.
The day of exploring started at the National Café at the National Gallery, because no day can't start without a belly full of carbs. The National Café had just reopened (on 6 March 2017) after being closed for just under two months and it is now part of Peyton and Byrne's restaurants- which include The Wallace Restaurant.
In February I decided to write a post talking about my latest discoveries in terms of restaurants in London with the intention of making it a monthly occurrence, if possible. In London, there is always a new restaurant opening or restaurants opening after being closed for refurbishment, plus there are many restaurants that have been there for a while and I never had a chance of visiting- as a matter of fact I have a very long list of restaurant/ brunch places I must try at some point.
I am going to start with the perfect dinner at The Game Bird at The Stafford London, I was invited with a group of instagrammers/ bloggers, to taste the new menu following its recent re-opening following a refurbishment.. You will not stumble across this place, unless you were looking for it, and it feels like stepping back in time and I would not be surprised if that street had been used as a filming location for a period drama.Read More
At the beginning of this week, I made my way to Waitrose Cookery School in Finchley Road for their #cookandshare supper club, an evening to not only taste Waitrose new Easter food range but also chance to get stuck in the kitchen and prepare some of the dishes. I was invited alongside other bloggers and instagrammers.
The setting for our dinner was stunning and it definitely felt spring had arrived: lots of balloons and flowers, hard not to snap away.
We started by preparing the meringue for our Spring Eton Mess (which is definitely on my top 3 favourite desserts). Meringue in the oven, we moved to enjoy a cocktail making class and learn how to make an Easter themed Piňa Colada- with I truly enjoyed, even though I am not a fan of this cocktail usually. I guess the chocolate on the glass rim helped!Read More
