Cooking In Motion – Carousel PopUp

I’ve recently discovered Carousel in Marylebone which is a laid-back restaurant just up the road from Chiltern Firehouse. The beauty is they host ongoing dining popups which rotate frequently and from what I’ve seen so far, the price sits around ¬£35 for about 5/6 courses.

A Local Valentine’s Feast

Now into our 6th Valentine’s together we’ve learnt to avoid the restaurants on Valentine’s Day full of expensive set menus and forced couple’s environment! Instead we opted for Primeur in Canonbury which their exact words when booking was ‘We don’t do any of that Valentine’s bollocks’ – right up our street. Continue reading “A Local Valentine’s Feast”

Double dating at Kurobata, Marble Arch

On my list due to many reviews had been Kurobata in Marble Arch which is the creation from Scott Hallsworth who used to be the head chef at Nobu London. His new permanent home offers Japanese food with a supposed Australian / fast food twist. Continue reading “Double dating at Kurobata, Marble Arch”

Having flown back from a work trip in Denver that morning I was then lucky enough to be whisked up the top of Tower 42 to Jason Atherton’s City Social for a Double Archer birthday celebration – Steph and Lawrence’s. Continue reading “Double Archer Birthday @ City Social”

Andina – Peruvian Treasure

It had been far too long since Jenny and I had caught up and so a place was chosen and off we went to the wonderful Andina in Shoreditch. This had been on my list for awhile and was a creation from Martin Morales who offers great Peruvian food which is all the rage in London these days. Continue reading “Andina – Peruvian Treasure”

Final Parisian day with a birds eye view!

I’m conscious that the last post was¬†getting a tad too long, so shall finish off our weekend with a final walk in the sunshine down to Tour Montparnasse which is a hidden gem off the tourist trail but yet with an incredible view. Continue reading “Final Parisian day with a birds eye view!”

Parisian art galleries, good food and Charlie Hebdo

I’d pre booked tickets for David Altmejd, at the MUSEE D’ART MODERNE VILLE DE PARIS which had got rave reviews on Time Out as a must see in Paris. He’s a Canadian sculptor who lives and works in New York and produces very obscure but highly detailed sculptures. Continue reading “Parisian art galleries, good food and Charlie Hebdo”

Surprise Birthday in the midst of hostage situations – Paris!

Apologies for the radio silence, been rather hectic in the office, but I’m back and what better way then words from Lawrence’s surprise birthday weekend in Paris. Continue reading “Surprise Birthday in the midst of hostage situations – Paris!”

Saving perhaps the best until last – Marari Beach.

You may be glad to hear that the India posts are finally coming to an end, thanks all for reading and hopefully this one will be a wonderful goodbye to South India.

We were spending our last few days at Marari Beach resort which was the perfect excuse for a bit of relaxation before heading back to work in cold England. Continue reading “Saving perhaps the best until last – Marari Beach.”
