GRAYS & FEATHER: UNLOCKING THE KINGDOM OF WINE

I am always thrilled about a new wine bar springing up in London, but there’s something about Grays & Feather in Covent Garden that is even more exciting than most. Self-described as a ‘mischievous wine parlour’, the two-storey venue pricks the senses as soon as you walk in: in your direct eye-line is an elaborate […]

WINE TASTING AT LE COCHONNET – 7TH FEB

‘Have you tasted the Clare Valley Riesling? You must try the Riesling!’ I first met the owner of Le Cochonnet, Peter, whilst tasting some delicious wines from Pikes at the London Wine Fair. I had tried the Riesling and had learned all about it from Jamie at Pikes, but I was happy to try it […]

Last night’s dinner at @armathwaitehallhotel - beautiful Pinot Noir from Alsace 🍷 Perfect with venison risotto 👌
It’s almost been a year since I went to Japan and fell for the enigmatic charms of saké! This was the at the end of a beautiful meal at Hinokizaka at Ritz-Carlton in Tokyo - if you have a chance to go, this restaurant is incredible. I know you can get some of the best Japanese food in tiny little back rooms with eight stools, but the sushi here was like art and the selection of saké, along with the presentation, was a dream. Service and setting (facing a huge window overlooking Tokyo) was second to none 👌 (I want to go back 😭)
Race day! 🐎 Unfortunately I didn’t have the luck of the Irish with me but I did have the wine of the Australian 🍷 #ThePaddock @cheltenhamraces
Baccadoro Passito, Fondo Antico, Sicilia, NV - enjoyed at @harrysldn after a long, luscious lunch! Gotta do dessert wine - for me, the meal isn’t finished without it. This was all dates and raisins with a viscous texture, balanced with an almost lemony acidity. Mmm-mmm-MMMMMM! (I drank it while eating the Harry’s Toadstool dessert: white chocolate, fresh raspberries, mascarpone mousse, iced vanilla parfait and pistachio biscotti crunch with a warm pistachio sauce. Just. Do. It.)
Had a LARVERLY bday yesterday! Got me some fierce white nails in the morning at @cocorachel.nailscoffee, then had doughnuts for breakfast from @crosstowndoughnuts! A couple of glasses of crisp Crémant de Loire at the Ham Yard with @samantha_stanza, followed by a boozy lunch with @rebecca_drinks_cocktails at @harrysldn. Later on, a Japanese takeaway at home, a bottle of sublime saké and a very fiery birthday cake! 🔥
Sometimes you need Pecorino to bring a little sunshine in this horrid London weather! 🌧 This wine at @thegarrisonse1 was scrumptious - apples and limes - yum yum yum! 🍏 Thank you @zoecorsellisboutique and little Zeb for the pre-birthday celebration today! 🥳
New favourite thing: Pedro Ximenez poured over vanilla ice cream. OMG.
