34 - Grovesnor Square, W1


The devil is in the detail it seems and the detail never got more tempting than a perfectly cooked slab of rib eye. Skillfully charred on an amazing bespoke Argentinean charcoal grill just out of sight of your table in the open kitchen.

Moomins Cook Book - An Introduction to Finnish Cuisine

I’ve always enjoyed the works of Tove Jansson and for me the Moomins have a certain charm that is hard to resist. The simple themes of the books and works are easily enjoyed by adult and child alike and when I saw the Moomins Cook Book the kid in me had bought it before I knew what was going on.

Chorizo Croquetas


I can’t think of many things that aren’t made better with the addition of bread crumbs and a short bout in the deep fryer? It seems a lot of people agree out there as well; whether it’s your bitterballen, butter balls, arancini, mac and cheese balls, or the Spanish Croquetas you’ll find different versions all over the place!

Export India Porter - Kernel Brewery SE1


Black almost oily like a Goths jacket, tempestuous, dark rich and inviting! Biscuit on the nose, toasted cocoa, oatmeal, malt, sweet at first on the palette and then the strength comes through.
