Putting the nut back in nutritious, Pip & Nut is a new natural foods brand offering health conscious shoppers a range of super tasty spreads: peanut butter, almond butter, and coconut almond butter. From coming up with a couple of quirky recipes using Pip & Nuts awesome peanut butter and giving away some of these delicious nut butters to my readers to sneaky a cheeky spoonful of almond and coconut butter every so often, I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with the P&N product over the past month.

Breakfast at Fish & Chips by Des McDonald, Old Broad Street

One of the better breakfasts I’ve had recently was at Fish & Chips by Des McDonald (the newer location near Liverpool Street, not the one nearer Angel). I loved the look and feel of the place – a sort of idealised and spiffed up caff with a gorgeous centrepiece bar, rather austere but not at the sake of comfort. The food was delish. And the top ups for my cuppa – a filter brew a la Ozone Coffee – never ceased flowing until I was ready to leave. Win? Big time. I hope to be back soon (if only for a cup of joe to go) and am happy to recommend the place to anybody seeking somewhere in the City for a quick brekkie bite or early morning meeting.

“Women Fashion Power” Menu at Blueprint Café, Design Museum

Blueprint Café at the Design Museum is worth consideration for its lofty views of the Thames alone (ask for a seat by the windows when you book and then duke it out with your date over who gets the view of Tower Bridge and the City and who gets the view of Canary Wharf). However, Head Chef Martyn Moody’s not-so-fussy but still very fine food is the real draw. To celebrate London Fashion Week, Moody has come up with a Women Fashion Power set menu for February. Yet another stylish reason to pay this restaurant a visit? It sure looked and tasted that way to me when I gave the menu a try last night.

Win a Trio of Delicious and Nutritious Nut Butters from Pip & Nut

Peanut butter. I love it. Blend some roasted peanuts down to a smooth and spreadable texture, add some salt and voila: deliciousness. But I’m not so keen about the rest of gunk that’s likely to be among the ingredients in many of the peanut butters I come across of the shelves of most shops. Enter Pip & Nut, a new to the shelf natural food brand offering a range of three nutty and nutritious spreads.

The Pip & Nut range includes a perfectly yummy back-to-basics peanut butter, an awesome almond butter, and an indulgent almond and coconut butter. Each is high in nutrition and low on ingredients. As Pip & Nut’s inaugural Blogger of the Month, I’ve been having fun nibbling and playing around with the P&N product. I’ve been given a few extra jars of butters to share with one lucky reader as well. Would you like to have some really tasty and healthy natural nut butters sent your way for free?

Sunday Lunch at the Crown and Two Chairmen, Soho

On my way from Oxford Circus last weekend to Sunday lunch at the Crown and Two Chairmen pub on Dean Street, I passed a fairly lengthy queue of folks bundled up and waiting to get a table at the Soho outpost of The Breakfast Club. With minutes of taking my seat upstairs at the Crown and perusing its rather choice selection of beer and thinking about what I wanted to eat, I already was feeling so much more savvy (and smugly so to be honest) than the curbside clubbers I’d passed moments ago – most of whom were still probably standing outside on the pavement).

Keep reading:

The Crown is an easy venue to recommend for a leisurely Sunday afternoon taking easy in the pub and off the pavement.

Le Menar: Modern Approach to North African and Middle Eastern Cuisine

It’s nice being pleasantly surprised, right? And that’s just what I was during a recent dinner at newly relaunched Le Menar restaurant in Fitzrovia. It wasn’t that I had been expecting any sort of substandard meal; I just didn’t realise Head Chef Vernon Samuels’ “modern approach” to North African and Middle Eastern cuisine was going to be so inspired, thoughtfully prepared and intriguingly tasteful.

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.
