British Bubbly

After 20 years of determination, investment and hard work, England is transformed into one of the fastest-rising wine region on the planet.

Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte

#PSL

Pumpkin signifies more than the end of summer but the beginning of the winter holiday hysteria. The knives are out for marketeers and retails to fight for a slice of your festive mindshare.

Bar Termini

This slick little spot on the edge of with its marble bar top and smooth leather panelled seats is definitely one you won’t want to miss out on.

Top of the hill

The morning settled down into a day. Time to reel my thoughts in with cup of something warm. If you find yourself in primrose hill, I urge you to check out Melrose and Morgan on Gloucester Avenue.

The Sunny Side of a Fry-up

Classic cafes are still standing in centre of London, and seemingly resisted the refits for decades. They feed the building trade more than anyone else. I walked into one for the first time n Lisson Grove, Marylebone.

What Do I Actually Eat

For whatever excuses and reasons, we do end up ill prepared and not eating well while at work. I thought I will show you what I eat at my studio today.

New Opening: Lundenwic

Review: Den Udon, Kings Cross

Self claimed ‘evangelist’ of Udon, Den Udon opened its doors on 15th December 2014, right before the holidays and the start of university vacation.

I'll Put the Kettle On, Shall I?

Tea! This is what has been missing in my life. The source of my misery of late. I am not sure of it, but I am sticking to it. I can’t seem to recall exactly when I stopped making and drinking tea, along with making food too. Drinking tea used to give me such joy, so does cooking. Now I rarely switch on the stove.

Consider the Egg this Easter
