Recipe: A Mexican Pizza (sort of). By way of Highbury and Camden.

September 8, 2014 LLG Food

Given how much time I spend in the kitchen, there is little that I like more than eating out in someone else’s house. And when that house is the home of my dear friend Miss P, I am practically kicking up my heels with anticipatory glee. She is a phenomenally good cook, the best that [...]

Supper for my girlfriends: Peach & Buffalo Mozzarella Salad, Kohlrabi Remoulade and more…

August 20, 2014 LLG Food

I invited seven girlfriends round for supper the night before we departed for Wilderness, and I realised at 6pm that I hadn’t given a moment’s thought to the menu for the evening. Thankfully I have London’s best greengrocer on my street, so I whipped downstairs and into Parkway Greens with a huge shopping basket, to scoop up [...]

A weekend in London from Fischer’s to Lemonia

July 14, 2014 LLG Food

After last week’s dashing about from pillar to post, I dedicated this weekend to seeing friends and family, exercise and beating my flat into submission. I had a lovely long lie-in on Saturday, before waking with a jolt at 0930hrs, casually glancing at my phone and realising with horror that I had booked myself into [...]

Food: Loon Fung Chinese Supermarket, Gerrard Street, Chinatown

June 27, 2014 LLG Food

I can – and do – spend hours in Chinese supermarkets.  In England, whether it’s the giant hypermarkets – Wing Yip at Staples Corner and Hoo Hing up the road on the North Circular, or See Woo on Lisle Street in London’s Chinatown, they are hands down my favourite places to shop for food. I’ve favoured [...]

Taste of London 2014: Chicken necks to Shake Shack by way of Laurent-Perrier & pizza

June 18, 2014 LLG Food

(Fried chicken necks with lemon and garlic at Duck & Waffle.) This evening I escaped from the office for a couple of hours to meet Miss P at the preview evening for this year’s Taste of London in Regents Park – handily located a brisk ten minute walk from me. She and I first visited [...]

London Event: Rioja Tapas Fantasticas

June 15, 2014 LLG Food

A couple of weeks back I spent a very, very good London evening drinking white Rioja and eating plates and plates of tapas with Liz, (one of my great friends from university, who I don’t see nearly enough), as we checked out four of the restaurants that are taking part in today’s Tapas Fantasticas festival [...]

Chelsea Flower Week 2014: Tea en Rose Afternoon Tea at Sofitel St James

May 18, 2014 Chelsea Flower Week

As I discovered with Hannah on Friday afternoon, there is no more delightful way to enter a rose-tinted sugar haze than by taking afternoon tea in the Sofitel St James’ Rose Lounge. I’ve stayed in the hotel once before, locking myself away for a weekend to recover from London Fashion Week. As I wandered through [...]

A Week in LLG: Bibendum, Tumi, Tod’s, Milli Millu and Posetta

May 17, 2014 LLG Food

(Pea shoots, burrata, roasted cherry tomatoes, asparagus, artichokes at Bibendum) I know that as one gets older that time is supposed to speed up, but it really does feel like the weeks go by on roller skates at the moment. I just looked at my diary to see what I had done this week and [...]
