Where I’ve Eaten

Sumi Sushi

Head here for sublime sushi from the little sister restaurant to Michelin-starred Endo at the Rotunda. Expect high quality Japanese cooking in this relaxed neighbourhood venue on Westbourne Grove.

Order the Hotate Temaki – diced scallop with hanahojiso flowers, soy and salt, £9

Gunpowder Soho

A fantastic restaurant with vibrant Indian cooking in atmospheric surroundings. The wood panelled, brass and velvet fitted dining room is the perfect setting for winter eating.

Order the Spicy Venison and vermicelli doughnut, £7

Rose Bakery, Dover Street Market

Cakes, coffee and simple seasonal plates in a relaxed, light-filled space in London’s hottest concept store.

Order the Grilled Hispi with anchovy sauce or the Rose, almond and lemon cake

Lily Vanilli at Theatre Royal, Drury Lane

This decadent afternoon tea served in the Regency splendour of the recently renovated historic theatre has been all the rage since it launched.

Order the tiered stand of assorted sweet and savoury bites including pink lemonade tarts and superb sausage rolls.

And the product to buy…

Kitchen Aid’s all-in-one Bread Baking Bowl and Lid (a new stand-mixer attachment) allows you to mix, knead, prove and bake your sourdough in one bowl. The lid traps the steam in the oven while the ceramic bowl holds heat cooking the dough thoroughly and producing the prized crispy crust.
