  • The Future Looks Bright for Courvoisier

    Sunday June 14th, 2015

    Even non-cognac drinkers have heard of Courvoisier, so when Lara got an invite to a mysterious Courvoisier event in Paris she was onto the Eurostar faster than you can say 'la plume de ma tante'.

  • Spirits Distilled by Mark Ridgwell

    Thursday February 5th, 2015

    Spirits Distilled by Mark Ridgwell is primarily a book for industry professionals, bar tenders and mixologists, but if you can look past the necessarily dry sections about processes, principles and classifications, you'll find a treasure trove of interesting information about the history and culture of spirits.

  • Total Greek Yoghurt Cookbook

    Monday November 10th, 2014

    I was sceptical that Kyle Books could fill a whole book with Greek yoghurt recipes but a clever consortium with Sophie Michell has resulted in an unusually singular book that beautifully highlights the versatility of this one, singular ingredient.

  • Nothing paltry about Copas chickens

    Monday January 20th, 2014

    Costing £17.50 and so much more intense than your average chicken, this is not the bird you'll bring out every weekend, but rather a very special bird, for a very special occasion.

  • Easter cheese to please

    Thursday March 21st, 2013

    If there's two things that people love all year round and even more so at times of celebration, it's chocolate and cheese. Both rich, creamy and yet never to be enjoyed together.

  • Nothing but blue Skyes

    Tuesday March 12th, 2013

    Sydney born, Paris trained and London lived, Skye Gyngell is working with VisitEngland on their latest campaign. Devoted to the kaleidoscopic range of Britain's food and drink Gyngell hopes to promote the best of British in this latest collaboration. Lara Cory had a chat with Skye to find out what she loves about British food, and how far she's travelled for a good meal.

  • Fizz for Francophiles

    Monday November 26th, 2012

    Champagne goes hand in hand with Christmas, so put the fizz into this year’s festivities with Champagne + Fromage. The Covent Garden shop and bistro has a whole host of Christmassy gift boxes, bottles of beautiful grower Champagne, cheese and foodie favourites.

  • David Baker, brandy man

    Tuesday November 20th, 2012

    'Never swirl a spirit' I'm told, as David pours a ten year old cognac into the glass and rolls it about gently. Apparently swirling the spirit releases the alcohol which blinds the delicate aromas of the drink.

  • Satsuma Japanese Restaurant

    Wednesday November 7th, 2012

    Once populated with space-age orange booths, management decided to over haul the space yet again with the more mingle-friendly seating plan of community tables. So now, along with the help of the floor length front window, it's easier than ever to see and be seen at the Soho venue.

  • A life in cheese. We talk to the Wigmores from Village Maid

    Friday October 26th, 2012

    In 1986 Anne and Andy Wigmore, along with a £40 a week incentive from the government, began their own cheese making business. Over 25 years later, Anne and Andy are still at it and not much has changed. Lara Cory spoke to the Wigmore's about their life with cheese.

  • Tibits at Home

    Sunday September 30th, 2012

    Tibits recipes have a clarity of flavour that might not be suitable for novice vegetarians who are still smothering everything with cheese and surviving largely on bread.

  • Jamie Oliver's Big Feastival

    Tuesday September 4th, 2012

    At other festivals you've either got good food or good music, but at Jamie Oliver's Big Feastival, punters don't have to sacrifice one for the other. You can wander around the food stalls while waiting for the next act to appear on stage.

  • Scandilicious Baking

    Thursday August 23rd, 2012

    With  Noma overtaking our own Heston as the world's top dining experience, the resurgence of Gudrun & Gudrun knits and the killer television drama coming from the north, it's no wonder we've all gone Scandi-mad.
