A few weeks ago I attended my first ever supper club. But it wasn’t just any supper club – this was Luiz Hara, aka the highly regarded author of the award-winning blog The London Foodie’s, supper club.
So I have something rather exciting to share with you all. Enter Take Eat Easy. A new food-tech start-up that’s giving a whole new meaning to the word ‘takeaway’.
For those who don’t know, the Three Peaks Challenge involves climbing the highest peaks in Scotland, England and Wales, in less than 24 hours.
For one of Michael’s birthday presents I wanted to give him an experience. When I then heard of London in the Sky, and realised that it was taking place in September, it was as if the Gods of Fate had spoken to me. It was perfect.
To round up my birthday celebrations, Michael took me for dinner at Galvin la Chapelle, a Michelin-starred restaurant housed in a seriously stunning former Victorian chapel.
For the past 3 years my ‘family’ birthday night has meant drinks at Oscar Bar & Restaurant in the Charlotte Street Hotel, followed by dinner at Roka, which, if you are a regular reader, you will know is my favourite restaurant in the whole wide world, and is just a few metres walk away.
I’m more of a birthday week than a birthday kinda gal; genuinely not because it’s supposed to be about celebrating me, but because I find it a great excuse to make lots of plans filled with all of my favourite people and things.
Smoothies and juices have long been promoted as ‘healthy’, yet the shop-bought options tend to be anything but; packed full of sugar, juice from concentrate or powders, and have undergone heat pasteurisation to kill any bacteria, simultaneously destroying all of the nutrients.
I was a little slow on the ‘advance booking’ of Mother’s Day celebrations this year, so despite trying to find a suitably fitting option to celebrate my favourite lady two weeks before the big day, I was coming up empty.
I absolutely cannot believe Michael and I have been together for 3 years. Both because 3 years have flown by at the speed of light, and because I cannot remember him ever not being around, pinching my cheeks, making ridiculous noises and being a general loveable nutcase.
