{REVIEW} Every time I have visited a branch of +Jamies Italian  I have been surprised and impressed - and my visits to the Westfield Stratford and Covent Garden branches were no exceptions! Read all about it in my full post: http://www.cooksister.com/2016/06/jamies-italian-covent-garden.html

{FILM} So at the end of last month, the long-awaited Tasteology short films were finally released by +AEG UK. The purpose of the four films is to explore how food's taste and flavour can be maximised by manipulating a variety of non-taste factors such as sourcing, storage, cooking technique and things like the colour of the plates. It's a fascinating journey and all the films are now available to watch on YouTube. Here is my account of the taste-along dinner that I attended in London to celebrate the launch of the films: http://www.cooksister.com/2016/05/tasteology-aeg-film-take-taste.html 
Tasteology is a documentary film in 4 episodes (Source, Chill, Heat, Experience) commissioned by AEG, exploring how to achieve the ultimate taste experience

{RESTAURANT} Min Jiang restaurant, perched on top of the Royal Garden Hotel overlooking London's Kensington palace gardens, is famous for its Beijing duck - we tried it as part of a menu where each course was matched with a different tea. Here's the full review with pictures: http://www.cooksister.com/2016/05/min-jiang-tea-pairing.html

{INTERVIEW} I just love this picture taken of me and (then) anonymous Internet sensation Chef Jacques LaMerde in Toronto in December. "Jacques" turned out to be Christine and we hit it off instantly. I was there to interview her and capture some behind-the-scenes footage as a film crew filmed her for +AEG UK's  Tasteology documentary. The film is being released on 25 May but if you are UK-based, right now you can WIN a double ticket for a 4-course VIP taste-along screening in London this Saturday 21 May. Details of how to enter are at the bottom of this post about my interview http://www.cooksister.com/…/jacques-la-merde-aeg-tasteology…. But hurry - you have until midnight tonight smile emoticon

{RECIPE} Ever had a Buddha bowl?  The concept is to mix whole grains, pulses and vegetables in a bowl with some dressing for a healthy and satisfying meal.  Here's my take on that idea: a quinoa, bulgur, edamame and bell pepper bowl, packed with nutrients, flavour and colour! Get the recipe here: http://www.cooksister.com/2016/04/quinoa-buddha-bowl-edamame-peppers.html #recipe   #vegan   #vegetarian   #buddhabowl
