From the Makers of Beach Blanket Babylon – West Thirty Six: Having recently moved south of the river, I wasn’t feeling particularly inspired by the idea of a trek across London to North Kensington/Westbourne Park Road, an area that tend to attract a particular type of aspiring London hipster.

seven days of gaucho

Seven Days of Malbec and Malbec World Day 2015: Wine tasting in the afternoon, at least when it isn’t as part of a wine tour, seems sublimely decadent to me.  Especially when it is rich, fruity malbec.  Who would turn down an invitation to preview the Gaucho Seven Days of Malbec events and learn a […]

Indian Street Food and More at Inito

Inito – Indian Street Food: I have a tendency to get lost in parts of London I don’t know so well.  The area around Liverpool Street falls firmly into that category.  Walk for a few minutes and you’ll find yourself in the heart of London’s fabric markets, an area which at night is desolate, strewn […]

Smoked plaice goujons with cheat aioli: When my friend and fish supplier, John at DelishFish told me his colleagues at the Amity Fish Company had just won an award for their trio of smoked fish in the Grampian Food Forum Awards, I wasn’t particularly suprised.  Though I’d actually only tried one of the three fish […]

In Search of the #PerfectPorridge – Ireland

The vexation of an itinerant Scot – #PerfectPorridge in Ireland: What was I doing getting on a plane to fly to Cork?  Every Scottish lassie (even those who have lived most of their life in London) knows the best porridge comes from Scotland.  The ‘backbone of many a sturdy Scotsman’, I grew up on porridge […]
