Restaurant Review: Balans Soho Society – LondonFeatured

I’m always looking for new places to eat in London and having seen this restaurant numerous times, I had never actually ventured in, until now. Balans Soho Society, rather cleverly tagged the ‘haven for the convivial’ has outlets all over London. I was lucky enough to dine at the Old Compton Street venue last weekend and what a delight it was. As soon as you walk in, you hit an atmosphere of upbeat, theatrical happiness. The decoration certainly gives this restaurant a late night ‘speak easy’ feel mixed with an actors den after a late night show. Our table was…

Restaurant Review: Bibimbap Soho – London

My youngest daughter is currently learning to speak, write and read Korean, is mildly obsessed by KPop and loves all things from Korea. At 16 she is of the age where she is going out by herself and, just like me, she loves to eat at new and exciting restaurants. A few months ago she came home after a trip to London with her big brother and raved about a little Korean restaurant she had found in Soho. She has since been back countless times and last week she insisted I join her so I could also sample the authentic Korean…

Natural & Organic Products Europe Show 2017 at Excel London

Each year I am honoured to be asked to attend the Natural & Organic Products Europe Show as member of the press. When I first started attending the show, it was held in Olympia and I always felt it was a little cramped but the past few years, since the show has been moved to Excel London, it is by far my favourite show to attend. Last week was show day and my press pass and I were ready to rock and roll. Natural & Organic Products Europe Show is Europe’s biggest trade show for natural products – making it the ‘must attend’…

Restaurant Review: Friendly Phil’s Diner at The Venue, Hempstead Valley, Kent.

There is something about the atmosphere of a good American diner. Maybe it’s the combination of the decor, music and food; it’s great when a diner gets it right, but sadly many don’t. However, I am extremely pleased to report that we have found a little gem of an American diner and even better, it’s just a few miles away from where we live. Friendly Phil’s Diner is based at the Venue complex which is part of Hempstead Valley Shopping Centre near Gillingham, Kent. It’s relatively new and has taken up residence in place of what was, Dean’s Diner. Although…

I admit it! I’m a #CondimentJunkie

When I was little, I would smother everything in tomato ketchup. It is a wonder how I ever made it as a food writer really, because when I was a child, all I could probably taste was ketchup 😉 However luckily, my palette changed and I stopped using ketchup (unless it’s on chips, you can’t walk down by the seaside with a bag of chips and not have ketchup now can you?!?) so much and started to collect, yes…. collect, other sauces and condiments. I have tried so many different types over the years but when I tried one particular…

Restaurant Review: The Peridot Restaurant at The Bentley Hotel in Kensington London

Recently I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend a lovely evening at The Peridot Restaurant based in The Bentley Hotel in Kensington, London.  Myself and friends, travelled up to London by train to Victoria Station, then jumped in a black cab and whisked off to what seemed a very private and beautiful part of Kensington. We were greeted on arrival by the doorman and escorted through the beautifully decorated lobby by the concierge. Once we were through the lobby we were taken to The Peridot Restaurant where we were introduced to the restaurant manager, Lealynn, who immediately made us…

‘Nice to Mojit-you’ fragranced soy wax candle by Erin Tynan Creative Review

Candles are not just there to provide light, they provide ambience, a setting, an emotion and in a lot of cases a fragrance, which can transport you to a memory or a feeling. My house is full to the brim with candles of all shapes, colours and fragrances. I was delighted when Erin from Erin Tynan Creative contacted me and asked if I would like to try her fragranced soy wax candles. Being a tropical kind of a gal, I chose ‘Nice To Mojit-You‘ fragrance as the classic Mojito is one of my favourite summertime drinks! The candle arrived, very well…
