Live at One – One Aldwych Screenings

Axis - Dingley Dell Pork

The Crucible at One Aldwych – A Screening from the Old Vic: I had an inkling that the screening of The Crucible at One Aldwych might be something special.  For a start, although it was the only Live at One productions that was not a ‘live screening’,  I know it had been a sell-out production […]

Pisco Sour Week in Soho

Making Pisco Sours

Getting to Grips with the Peruvian Trend – Pisco Sours: I have to be honest and admit that I hadn’t realised how popular Peruvian cuisine has become in London. I was asked to try a Pisco Sour at Nikkei Chotto Matte on Frith Street, and was amazed to find another Peruvian bar/restaurant only doors away.   […]

Grimm Tales – an Evening of Escapism: As a child I was an avid reader.  Hiding under the blankets with a torch of course, we had a set bed-time and lights-out half an hour later.  One of my earliest memories was my grandma giving me some of my mother’s story books.  Keen on painting and […]

Guildhall Art Gallery – Victoriana and More

Roman Amphitheatre 2

Relaunch of the Guildhall Art Gallery: For a while I was based in the City of London, working in Love Lane. Literally a minute from the Guildhall, I can remember looking around the buildings from the outside and being taken into the Guildhall building itself by one of the taxi drivers who worked for LTI […]

Toasting The Bard Just A Bit Early – Burns Night Preview: With a great grandfather from Skye and a whole host of relatives on my father’s side hailing from the west coast islands it’s hardly suprising that I love Burns Night.  Originally held to commemorate the great bard’s death, at a certain point the supper […]

Lindt Chocolate and Wine Tasting Event at Vinopolis

Lindt wine and chocolate matching 3

Chocolate and Wine – a Marriage Made in Heaven? While on paper the combination of chocolate and wine might sound delectable – especially if you are a chocaholic like me who is also fond of the odd glass – the reality is that matching chocolate and wine is regarded as quite challenging.

I do enjoy making tapas at home too.  While you might think making […]
