London Experiences – Gourmet Vegan Masterclass with Made in Hackney

I recently attended a Gourmet Vegan Masterclass with renowned plant-based chef Anton Petrov at Made in Hackney in Stoke Newington. The masterclass was held  underneath the ‘Food for All’ health food shop on Cazenove Road (at the Stoke Newington High Street end), just around the corner from Stoke Newington Rail Station. Made in Hackney is a charity that works for the…

London Supper Clubs – A Vegan Ayurvedic Supperclub

I was recently invited to an Indian Vegan supperclub co-hosted by Chef Saurav Nath (formerly of Michelin-starred Benares and Gymkhana) and Humayun Hussain (Co-creator, host and Food and Hospitality Consultant). You may recall the last time I attended a supperclub by this dynamic duo, back in Christmas 2018. Back then, I was impressed by the delicious food which was professionally…

London Brunch Reviews – ESCA Clapham

Esca started life in 2004, as a popular bakery in Clapham High Street. After several years of booming business, it was reborn as a coffee shop, bakery and restaurant specialising in Mediterranean cuisine. It belongs to the Eco Group of restaurants, a family business started by restaurateur Sami Wasif and his wife Laura. You might…

London Restaurant Reviews : Kahani

Kahani is the first solo venture from Chef Peter Joseph, former Head Chef at Michelin-starred Tamarind. His new restaurant occupies a subterranean venue to which, coincidentally, we had been some three years ago when it used to be Canvas. I remember from last time the space being quite dark and awkward, which is why it was…

London Supper Club Experience – Makan Malaysia

Malaysia is one of those countries that I came very close to visiting but never quite made it to. My brother studied in Malaysia for several years, but me, being a broke graduate back then, never got around to planning a trip to visit him (a decision I regret profoundly). I have also never tried…

London Restaurant Reviews : Soho Wala

Another day, another Indian restaurant in Central London. So what’s special about this one, you might ask? Plenty, as Kris and I recently found out when we hit this place for a spot of lunch. Soho Wala is attached to The Courthouse Hotel and specialises in Indian Street Eats. But this is no soulless hotel…

London Restaurant Reviews : Kutir Chelsea

Kutir is an Indian fine dining restaurant that opened about six months ago. It is a cozy restaurant, set inside a converted Chelsea townhouse, on a quiet street off Kings Road. It is a joint venture between Chef Rohit Ghai (formerly of Gymkhana and Jamavar) and Abishake Sangwan. This powerhouse duo brought their combined experience…

London Restaurant Reviews : The National Café

This is my second visit the The National Gallery’s National Café. I was there when it first opened, exactly two years ago. You can read all about it here. An invite from Love Pops Ups London to review their new Sorolla menu meant that I was back again at this spectacular and elegant space. But…

Celebrating our Wedding Anniversary at The Pig Hotel

We recently celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary with a trip to The Pig Hotel’s latest opening at Bridge Place. After a train and short taxi ride later, we found ourselves on the grounds of the hotel, which is located just outside Canterbury, in the historic village of Bridge. The magnificent building is listed and was…

London Pub Reviews : L’Affaire, Wandsworth

Moving forward, I am starting a new blog series called London Pub Reviews, as Kris and I do find ourselves frequenting London pubs a lot so it’s time to tell you guys about what we find along the way. I compare L’Affaire to that person in school who you knew existed but never spoke to…

London Experiences – Play Dead London

Disclaimer: I was invited to review the below experience and our tickets were complimentary but all opinions are mine.  Close on the heels of my experience of The Murder Express at Funicular Productions, I had the opportunity again to try something quirky and a little bit different to my usual foodie escapades, but with the…
