RUBY & PICKLES’ FIRST BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION

 Ruby & Pickles Supper Club

 

Last night the wonderful Ruby & Pickles celebrated their first birthday by hosting an evening of delicious dishes, bubbly, tunes and general good times at the uber cool loft style space Blank 100 in Dalston.

If you haven’t already heard of Ruby & Pickles then 1) Where have you been!? and 2) R&P was formed in the Spring of 2016 by friends Sareta & Jasel who wanted to put their love of cooking to work by creating themed supper clubs around London that are all homemade, Vegetarian/Vegan and sold out (book quickly!).  View Post

THE DEN, COLCHESTER’S FIRST VEGAN CAFE

 

When I moved out of London a few months ago and into deepest darkest Hertfordshire, one of my biggest worries (because I’ve totally got my priorities right) was that there would be a huge lack of Vegan options.

We were utterly spoilt for choice living in Hampstead. We were a five minute walk away from Le Pain Quotidien, with their chilli and their chocolate cake, and Silverberry Cafe, with their delicious Banana Bread. We were a five minute bus ride away from Club Mexicana, ten minutes on the tube to Yorica and we could get Firezza delivered directly to our door.

Thankfully our new tiny Town does have a few places we can eat out at, we’ve got a banging Chinese (that I’m frighteningly addicted to), our local cafe has a Vegan breakfast and I’ve been helping some other local business to work on adding some Vegan options. It’s certainly turned out to be an easier transition than I anticipated.

Since we’ve moved outside of the M25, we’ve been searching out all of the Vegan places the home counties has to offer.

First on the list was, of course, The Den in Colchester. Opened by Husband & Wife duo Rob & Jen in 2015, they are famous for their epic burgers and beautiful cakes, I’ve been drooling over their Instagram for years and my visit did not disappoint. View Post

CLUB MEXICANA AT PAMELA, HAGGERSTON

 

CLUB MEXICANA IS LIFE

In what has been deemed “The Best thing to happen to East London since forever”, Club Mexicana has taken over the kitchen at Pamela in Haggerston. If that wasn’t exciting enough, they’ve done it with an entirely new menu and everything is made from scratch. I repeat, EVERYTHING IS BEING MADE FROM SCRATCH!

That includes the tacos…which includes popping the kernels of the corn in order to make the tacos!!! A whole lot of love has gone into every item on the menu. View Post
