Colouring at KuPP.

What The Art of Mindfulness Colouring at Scandi-inspired KuPP this March Where KuPP 5 Merchant Square Paddington London W2 1AS Experience I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about colouring books recently, mainly that they relieve anxiety and help clear the mind. KuPP have come up with the genius idea of combining their Scandi-inspired menu with colouring in between courses this March. When being seated I was handed a book containing different colouring sheets. The trick is to pick the right sheet or else I might have given up half way through. The traditional owl picture inspired me most so I set about racking up the crayons for my purple and turquoise colour scheme – it was an avant-garde colour scheme, granted. After a few minutes I realised just how into colouring I was, not least because I got to enter a competition at the end of it. My friend arrived and it was time to order our starters.

Lorna Loves Lobster Kitchen

Where Lobster Kitchen What Situated a 5 minute walk from Tottenham Court Road, Lobster Kitchen is in a perfect location to attract London regulars from the trendy Soho business area nearby and stumbling tourists laden down with shopping bags from Oxford Street. The Experience The Lobster Kitchen could aptly be named shack; it is authentic with décor being shipped from New England, a slate wall from Canada and a further wall commissioned by London artist Tilo Kaiser, utilising old Canadian newspapers. Everything is quaint, kitsch and works incredibly well. After an initial discussion over dinner in 2013, co-owners Abigail Tan and Valeria Cinaglia opened the doors to LK on the 22nd of October 2014 and have had a great start to the business establishing itself in its first few months trading.

Upon arrival we were greeted with a prosecco and elderflower cocktail, quickly followed by a crisp, cold glass of Palmer & Co Blanc De Blancs, which Hannah and I …

Belgo Lobsterfest Starts Today! #Lobzilla

Last night I attended the launch of the annual Belgo Lobsterfest (#lobzilla) at Belgo Centraal in Covent Garden. We were treated to a lobster preparation demonstration by Muir Picken, Executive Chef, before feasting on lobster cocktail to start, followed by Lobzilla (whole grillied lobster, French fries, aioli and salad) for main. I wasn’t drinking but the rest of the guests looked more than impressed with the wide selection of beers that Belgo’s resident Master of Beer, Skender Ramadani, was recommending from the brand new Beer Bible (which includes a range of over 50 Belgian beers!) Kicking off today, Belgo’s Lobsterfest will run until the end of August with limited edition menu featuring three lobster based dishes. For the first time, Belgo has teamed up with the Padstow based National Lobster Hatchery, to support their “Buy One Set One Free” initiative and will donate £1 from each dish sold to  the campaign. Their work helps to conserve vulnerable lobster populations, preserve marine biodiversity and safeguard our fishing and seafood industry. The Limited Edition dishes are: • …
