London Restaurant Review – The Jam Tree, Chelsea

Yea verily, Dear Reader, I went off on an adventure to the Wild Wild West on Saturday. Wild, Wild West London, the King’s Road to be precise.

Review – Tesco’s Finest Sancerre 2015

Christmas invokes visions of cosy blazing fires, sparkling lights on Christmas trees, turkey, mince pies and bold reds and ports to be drunk copiously with meats, cheeses and pastries. But, what about a fish course? What about a wine match for a vegetarian Christmas main course? A wine that is lighter, crisper, with pleasant acid that complements white meats, fish and vegetable courses without overpowering them. Well, let me introduce you to Tesco’s Finest Sancerre 2015 so you can go and stock up!

Recipe – Sparkling Sloe Gin Fizz

There are few things that I love more in this life than gin. I love gin so much I named my blog in its honour. No other booze matches its savoury, spicy, mysterious flavour, no other spirit matches its mix of botanicals and the rich tapestry of lands they originate from. So I am delighted to present to you my new Christmas cocktail, the Sparkling Sloe Gin Fizz!

Recipe – Turkey and vegetable lasagne

Dear Reader, the Yuletide season is upon us and soon we will be awash in Christmas leftovers; roast potatoes, gravy, pigs in blankets, stuffing, cranberry sauce, sprouts and turkey. To help you prepare for this onslaught I’ve devised a turkey and vegetable lasagne that delivers all the comfort-food feelings you need when it’s dark and cold and is also a handy way to use up your Christmas leftover roast turkey (or you can use turkey mince). This recipe is also a bit lower in calories than your regular lasagne, so no need for any feelings of guilt!

Review – NEW OPENING Village Vanguard, E20 1AS

Dear Reader, you’re aware of my love affair with Milkmade, my local joint that rescued me from the jaws of hangovers and jetlag ennui with their delish buttermilk fried chicken and excellent chips? Well, something has changed. Is my love affair with Milkmade over? Who or what is Village Vanguard? Read on to find out…

Review – Maverick, SW1W 0QP

‘Sometimes the drudgery of 9 to 5 makes me long for the simpler times of serfdom’, I commented to my colleague on the way to lunch at Maverick. His response? Gales of disbelieving laughter. But quite honestly, wouldn’t it be better? You wouldn’t have to commute, you knew who was boss, there was no need to be competitive and HMRC didn’t exist. There were no mid-year performance reviews. On the downside, there was also no pizza.

Review – Clutch, E2 7QG

Hey G&J friends, fancy some finger lickin’ fried chicken? ‘Course you do, fried chicken is the biggest thing on the London food scene since the Great Gourmet Burger War started in 2011. As you’re aware, I’m a pretty big fan of Milkmade’s fried bird and also Absurd Bird and their fried chicken bao buns, but what of the stalwart of the scene, sat in a hipster’s paradise, Clutch?
