    Review: The Punchbowl Mayfair

    What better way to spend Sunday lunchtime, than in a pub having a Sunday roast with your loved ones! Last Sunday we headed on over to The Punchbowl for a roast, after all it did win ‘Best Pub in Mayfair’ at the TimeOut Love London Awards 2015, so naturally we had to see what all the fuss was about. The Punchbowl certainly oozes charm and beauty, which is split into four sections, on the ground floor is the pub where we dined, it pulls in a mix of people, but mostly locals, as it’s tucked away in the backstreets of Mayfair,…

    Leftovers Recipe: Carrot Top Pesto

    I have to admit a reason I waste food is a I’m clueless on how to make certain parts into tasty treats e.g. meat bones, tops of plants, stale bread etc. So it’s been my aim this winter to find a yummy use for everything I can! I thought where better to start than with carrots. We roasted the orange-y parts then are always left with the tops! A friend of mine pointed out the other day that “If there is a part of the plant that is green, it’s healthy and nutritious” Carrot tops are green. They are super…

    Brewdog Clerkenwell

    An English man and an Aussie walk in to bar. Sounds like a lame joke but this is fast becoming my life in London. Thursday’s night outing saw me and a mate get to attend the launch party of Brewdog’s latest bar. Brewdog is a crowd funded craft beer bar. As I’m not a big beer drinker, I let the Englishman do the most of the beer drinking tonight and stuck to a ‘Shandy’ and ‘cider’. Despite not being a lover of beer, I was impressed by the extensive number of beers available. The majority which are brewed by Brewdog.…

    Old Forester bourbon tasting at Milk and Honey

    My bourbon education continues at pace in what was probably my swankiest tasting yet. I was to taste the finest of bourbons in an upstairs room at the exclusive Milk and Honey club in Soho. On entry to a gloriously Mad Men-style room (complete with dark wood paneling and soft jazz music) we were given a glass of Old Forester Bourbon Smash punch. A simple but refreshing cocktail of bourbon, lemon, sugar and mint. It certainly got me in the mood for drinking without having to make the leap to straight liquor right away. Luckily for me there were also…
