  • Late Summer Premium Wines From Portugal

    Thursday August 22nd, 2019

    It’s time for more Portuguese wine. These three fine examples show that many of us may have been missing out by underrating Spain’s nearest neighbour.Because there is more to Portuguese wine than Mateus Rose.

  • Breville HeatSoft™ Hand Mixer

    Monday August 19th, 2019

    With GBBO time here again, you may be looking for a new kitchen helper. We try the HeatSoft™ hand mixer and find it’s perfect for cake making

  • La Tagliata

    Monday August 19th, 2019

    Some people see August as the time to eat game but not Nick, who hates spitting out shot. For him it’s the season to tuck into black summer truffles.

  • You Don’t Have To Like Meat To Love Carnivor Wine

    Friday August 9th, 2019

    It's a big wine for not so big occasions and we not only tried some, but wangled some for competition prizes too.

  • Microplane Julienne Slicer Review

    Tuesday August 6th, 2019

    A julienne slicer is a great tool to have in the kitchen arsenal and the Microplane Gourmet Julienne Slicer is compact, stylish abd very efficient.

  • The Great Southern Pub

    Saturday August 3rd, 2019

    A venerable old pub has been given the full Farrow & Ball treatment and Nick finds it has moved on nicely since his last visit

  • Matching Wine, Shakespeare Sonnets And Cheese

    Saturday August 3rd, 2019

    'My love is like a red red rosé .' A Provencal rosé, perhaps? Nick tries a fun new night out, matching wines with Shakespeare sonnets (with apologies to Robert Burns).

  • Dalloway Terrace Restaurant Review

    Friday August 2nd, 2019

    Even on an absurdly wet and windy summer's day, Nick finds Dalloway Terrace puts a sunny smile on his face.

  • Survive That Hangover With Survivor

    Thursday August 1st, 2019

    A new capsule looks to help mitigate some of the negative impact to one’s body by consuming alcohol, not just by masking them but actually preventing them. Nick grabs a bottle of cheap wine and tests out the claim

  • Summer Special Lunch Review Hawksmoor

    Monday July 22nd, 2019

    They had us with the words Langoustine and chips, so we had to try out Hawksmoor’s new lunch special

  • Tracklement’s Special Edition Roasted Garlic & Salami Jam

    Tracklement’s Special Editions rarely disappoint and this new Roasted Garlic & Salami Jam is another tasty addition to the range

    Rice is firmly the star at this new restaurant from a man adorned with more Michelin stars than most

  • London’s first modern Swiss-inspired restaurant opens in Soho

    Monday July 8th, 2019

    Swiss food isn’t just for après ski. There’s a whole lot more to savour and now you can try without flying

  • Discover Deliciously Beautiful Galicia

    Tuesday July 2nd, 2019

    Galicia on Spain’s North West coast is often overlooked by people heading straight for the sunnier south, but for food lovers and even gardeners it’s a paradise not to be missed.

  • Pate, Confit, Rillette: Recipes from the Craft of Charcuterie

    Monday June 17th, 2019

    ‘Pâté, confit, rillettes’. I would reverently murmur these words like a mystic incantation as I gazed in happy indecision at all those meat counters d’Antan.

  • Pho And Bun

    Saturday June 15th, 2019

    So small you might miss it, Pho & Bun on Shaftesbury Avenue has to compete with some big players all vying for their share of the out of towners food budget, but does it commendably well.

  • Viners Titan Knives Review

    Thursday June 13th, 2019

    A decent knife is vital to any kitchen and a knife set invaluable, we check out Viners set of knives plus magnetic block

  • Bob's Lobster

    Tuesday June 11th, 2019

    BOB's Lobster is a quite a catch, super fresh seafood in a modern diner setting and with some very inventive dishes that don't all involve the lobster.

  • Oslo Hackney

    Tuesday May 28th, 2019

    Nick finds travelling north to Oslo was well worth it, despite some initial misgivings

  • New Tracklements Chilli And Lemongrass Jelly

    Saturday May 25th, 2019

    Two flavours that always sing of Vietnam and Thailand to me are lemongrass and chili. So much so that I actually grow both in my greenhouse every year.
