Cane to Cocktail: At the Source

Produced only in Jamaica on one single estate in a small, circumscribed geographic area, Appleton Estate rum is one of the world’s few rums with a terroir. The core event of my Cane to Cocktail tour was a visit to the estate to discover what sets it apart from other rums and gives it such deep flavour.

Bidvine: A Safe Bet for Hiring the Right Pro

Bidvine is an app-based and online local services marketplace that dubs itself as “the easiest way to find and hire local professionals.” The folks at Bidvine recently got in touch to see if I’d like to browse their site and see about giving one of the services a go. I took ‘em up on it. My house has never been cleaner.

The idea behind Bidvine is that they “do the legwork to find you the right pro for your project.”

Here’s how it works:

The World’s End Market (Again)

It’s a good feeling when you revisit a place you already like a lot to find it’s even better than you remembered. That was the case when I recently paid a repeat visit to The World’s End Market in Chelsea.

More Fizz, Fewer Bottles with SodaStream

SodaStream invited me to take the Plastic Bottle Challenge and use one of its automatic sparkling water makers in an effort to cut back on buying bottle water. The results so far have been a sparkling success!

Little Feast, Shepherd’s Bush

Little Feast street market has been going strong for almost two months now with about another month to go. I just managed to swing by for the first time last week. It’s a pleasant setting for a fun night of nosh with plenty of (covered) outdoor seating, a friendly vibe and a convenient location just across the street from Goldhawk Road Station.

Genuine Pizza at Zia Lucia, Holloway Road

Holloway Road warriors, listen up! There’s tasty pizza to be had at newly opened Zia Lucia.

Good pizza – it’s not too much of an ask, is it? To be sure, pizza options are considerably better and more plentiful than when I first moved to London back from the States back in 2001, but there’s still a long way to go.

Preview: London Festival of Close-Up Magic

I was delightfully bewildered witnessing the slight of hand and uncanny trickery of magician Tony Middleton (aka Sonic) when I caught his Magic Hour back in March. Now Tony’s back with a full-on Festival of Close-Up Magic and I can’t wait to see what surprises lay in store.

As a blogger, editor and journalist, I've had the pleasure of working alongside Fourteen Ten for a number of years now. Very early in this relationship it became clear to me that they were top of the field and would provide their clients with thorough and quality service while ensuring media contacts like me were provided with appropriate and relevant materials for coverage.
