Les 110 de Taillevent

Les 110 Taillevent

I must apologise to you for the delay with this write up. You saw it on my insta stories, you fell in love, I promised you a piece on my blog that weekend… and then life happened and everything in my world came to a bit of a grinding halt.

So for the past few weeks I have been playing catch up like I’ve never played before – I’m juggling balls like a (semi) pro circus act and I have most certainly dropped a fair few along the way… (I said semi).

Lunch at Coppa Club, Market Place

Coppa Club

Last week I met my cousin Rosie for a quick al fresco lunch in between meetings. As we were both around Oxford Circus on that day, we headed to one of Market Place’s newest arrivals and took full advantage of the glorious weather, settling ourselves outside at Coppa Club.

Friends, Fish & Flamingos
at Babylon, Kensington Roof Gardens

 

Babylon Kensington Roof Gardens

Enough of this grizzly weather – it’s Summer over at Babylon. And there are flamingos too. So ditch the umbrella, head over to Kensington and hop in the magic lift, which will whizz you up 100ft to the magnificent hidden gardens, where cocktails are flowing and seafood tastes as though it was caught in the ocean just 5 minutes earlier…

Berlin Brünch has arrived
at German Gymnasium

German Gymnasium

I have never taken a trip to Berlin (I REALLY want to go) but even though I’ve never been, the whispers of the legend of their famous brunch has travelled over the seas and is something I’ve always longed to indulge in… (not the main reason I want to go to Berlin, but yes, it’s up there).

The Shed, Notting Hill

The Shed Notting Hill

I’d been meaning to go to The Shed for ages, ever since one of my friends visited and then didn’t stop talking about it… for a long time, actually. I think she still is.

I knew it was going to be special and I knew that it was going to be delicious… but what I wasn’t prepared for was how fun and barnyard-chic it was inside and how absolutely beautiful and PRETTY every dish was…

Supper at Sea Grill,
Puente Romano, Marbella

Puente Romano Sea Grill

This afternoon I boarded a plane, which flew me through the skies (clever) and landed me a short drive away from the Puente Romano Beach Resort and Spa in Marbella…

We arrived at sunset and by the time we’d arrived at the hotel it was all very dark outside, so I haven’t yet taken any photographs of the resort itself… I can’t wait to open my curtains in the morning and see the sun pouring in!

Pancakes in London: my ultimate list

Tom's Kitchen

Pancakes at Tom’s Kitchen

Toot toot! Pancake day is on its way and when it comes to crepes and pancakes in London, I am proud to say that I am extremely well informed… it comes from years of experience and dedicated research… which is very hard work and I’m sure you all feel very sorry for me.

This is a list of my favourite pancake haunts in London, which includes the crepe stand in Hampstead, where I first discovered, aged 14, the joy of nutella with banana… and sitting on a bench to eat it, in the rain, with a bestie.

Liquorice latte at Snaps & Rye

Liquorice latte at Snaps & Rye

A few days ago I found myself in one of my favourite parts of town and my old stomping ground, Golborne Road. I lived just off this street for around ten years, before moving to North London a little over a year ago…

In those 10 years I saw Golborne Road and the area around it change dramatically, with new places to shop, eat and drink popping up all the way down the street… and one of the new arrivals in 2014 was Snaps + Rye – the only Danish restaurant in London.

– UNI Restaurant –
bringing Nikkei to Belgravia

Uni Restaurant

Victoria, with its enormous station and busy roads, may seem like the last place you’d head to for a quiet and special dinner, but there are a myriad of charming and pretty streets nestled in and around the area… and on these streets are popping up more and more exciting new cafes, bars and gorgeous little restaurants…

UNI is on Ebury Street, which is the very street that Mozart lived on and wrote his very first symphony in 1764 – at number 180 Ebury Stret to be precise. Ian Fleming (who devised James Bond) also lived at 22b Ebury Street from 1934 to 1945… so it’s following in some rather glittering footsteps.

Aussie pals, an evacuation
and brunch at Granger & Co

Grange and Co

They know what they’re doing in the latte department. Ho yes.

Years ago, I worked in North Carolina as a Camp Leader for Camp America. I did it for three years and had around 180 teenagers in my charge at any one time. Let’s not think about that.

I was also responsible for the counsellors, who were looking after these teens. These counsellors were from all over the world, and included Lou from Brisbane Australia and Ami from London.

Anyway, they met on camp, they fell in love over a cook-out campfire and now they both live in Oz. And obviously this happy ending is ENTIRELY down to me.
