This Week I Ate... The Shed

At The Shed the humous arrives with a novel kind of crisp bread and some chive flowers. It really is a wonderful thing. It's the sort of dish that makes me loathe Michelin. Innovative, delicious beautiful and totally off their fussy Franco-gastrophilanthropic radar.

Thus the menu at The Crown when Aldo came to cook this week reflected the dishes of his childhood. The local sparkie, tyre-man, the farmers, a smattering of music producers (they get everywhere these days) and an excitable crowd of yummy mummies ate five courses, churned out by an increasingly sweaty Zilli, working at the pass with the very gifted pub chef, Felan Hennigan.

A Tipping Point

Jim Sherifi

I resent being made to feel responsible and guilty for my waiter's dire straits and for providing him/her with a living wage. It makes the good food stick in my craw to be put in this invidious position. Surely some of the blame should be shared with his/her employer.

K10 is the perfect lunchtime restaurant: quick, top-quality food served in an attractive and convenient location. In fact, my little sister and I liked it so much that we're tempted to start celebrating real occasions there- starting with Father's Day.

Now, aside the brief period I went vegetarian when I was 8 years old for 6 months because my neighbour ripped a butterfly in half, I've always been a fan of meat (insert innuendo), and mostly importantly, steak.

In balance to my oestrogen-fuelled argument, there are the crusaders to dinning equality which should be celebrated. The Belmond group seem to have tackled the problem with one simple question, "Who would like to try the wine?" ...Oh how simple the key to dining equality needs to be!

Ten Most Annoying Things About Eating Out Gluten Free

Caz Roberts | Posted 15.06.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Caz Roberts

I thought the sauce looked suspiciously glutenous so I asked him to check again with the chef. He returned and asked, "How allergic ARE you?" I looked at him and declared, a little poker faced white lie, "I will start vomiting profusely in the middle of your restaurant" at which point he admitted, "Yes, it's got flour in it". Sometimes you have to push to get the answers you need.

I ordered a Fitzrovia Bun at Milk & Honey on Warren Street. This is something you should try to do at least once in your life. I do it about twice a year. Any more would seem greedy. It is like no other bun you will ever feast your eyes on.
