The Field in Hackney, Plant based cuisine

Jun 21, 18 The Field in Hackney, Plant based cuisine

Posted by in All

When I was in my twenties, I was a rather strict vegetarian, almost bordering on vegan but that was when I lived in Asia (3 years) and it was a fairly easy thing to do. I stuck to it until I went back to the States and once I smelled bacon, that was it for me. I answered the siren call of bacon and pretty much never looked back....

Posted by in All

I recently attended a supperclub hosted by Le Petit Chef at TT Liquor in Shoreditch. Who is Le Petit Chef you might ask? He’s a miniature 3D animated French chef created by Dinner Time Story – a new innovative dining concept where diners are entertained by a tiny chef who jumps around not only your plate but the table...

Juighissa, dessert wine of Sardinia by Cantina della Vernaccia

May 18, 18 Juighissa, dessert wine of Sardinia by Cantina della Vernaccia

Posted by in All

Sardinia. Honestly, I always got it confused with Sicily; an Italian island in the Mediterranean, has beaches and they make wine. That was, until my most recent trip to the rugged island of Sardinia, where I discovered a beautiful landscape of granite mountains, verdant valleys, rolling hills, white sandy beaches with aquamarine...

Apr 15, 18 An Evening of Meat (and than some…)

Posted by in All

When I was invited to preview “An Evening of Meat” I wasn’t sure what to expect, it was billed as “… a unique and provocative dinner installation: a feast of femininity where expressive dance and indulgent food meet to thoroughly inundate all the senses…” However, I’m always game for...

Posted by in All

I landed in Sardinia last night and was charmed by the dramatic seaside before we even landed. I know very little about this island other then it’s Italian and cannonau is the main variety cultivated here. I’m here visiting as part of the Sardinia Beyond the Sea initiative sponsored by Sardinian producers and the...

On a cold, grey, rainy (read: typical) London January day, I made my way to the Boxcar Butcher & Grill in Marylebone for a few bottles of Australian sunshine courtesy of Hay Shed Hill Wines. Owner and winemaker Michael Kerrigan was in town to show off his wines to the lucky ones of us gathered around the dining table. Michael...

I was in Montpellier recently to do a bit of judging for the 2018 Milliseme Bio trade fair. It’s always nice to escape to the South of France in the middle of winter and when it’s to do a bit of winetasting, all the more fun. While I was there, part of my visit was an excursion to Domaine Henry. The domaine is right...

The Avina Champagne Stopper

Nov 04, 17 The Avina Champagne Stopper

Posted by in All

Over the summer I received the Avina champagne stopper in the post to review. I don’t really use stoppers much but on occasion they can be useful. Avina has developed a champagne stopper that claims it will keep the fizz in AND you can store open bottles sideways, which means you can lay them down on the fridge shelves rather...
