Salon Du Chocolat Chocolate Show, Olympia London
A chocolate show has to be a chocolate lover’s dream come true. With chocolate literally available on tap by Venchi, it was chocolate heaven. We were spoilt for choice with artisan delights from across the globe. Paul A Young’s salted caramel brownies are all the rage. The layers of ribbons of salted caramel on a moist brownie with a marvellous hot molten chocolate middle, are pure perfection. Chocolate has come a long way, with printed artisan chocolates and chocolate sculptures. 3D chocolate printers by Choc Edge seem to be the future for chocolate creations. With Bad Brownie, Rococo Chocolate and award winning The Highland Chocolatier, we were rather spoilt for choice. And then we spotted the perfect solution, Cocoa Runners, chocolate subscription service. We couldn’t resist and are rather excited about receiving our selection of artisan chocolates in the post every month, and think this would make a great gift. With tasting corners and live theatre the Chocolate Show was cocoa filled fun. The showstopper had to be the Chocolate Fashion Show, with dresses good enough to eat.

The Mermaid, London
Concierge Angel were rather excited to be invited to the London venue, “The Mermaid,” to assist caterer’s, Create, finalise their seasonal Spring/Summer menu. With the sun beaming over the river, the fabulous feast served in the upper River Rooms was impressive. Canapés can only be described as little works of art. The lemon ceviche scallop sprinkled with desiccated coconut, and a hint of fresh, zesty mango was delightful, with a lovely crunch from the sesame tuille. The head chef’s pastry background, was clearly evident from the delicate arrangement of creamy goat’s cheese on a crisp toast, topped with a torched fig. The mouth-watering, bite-size duck topped with mango salsa was a perfect balance of flavours. The warm sea bass with rock salt, on a bed of lemon infused aioli was rather delicious. The platter of appetisers was a pleasure to tuck into. The unique, gourmet take on the fish and chips, of poached Pollok served with crushed new potatoes and fish crackling was appetising. The parmesan crème brulee served with horseradish, pickled beetroot and apple was a rich palate cleanser. The succulent free range chicken with wild mushrooms drizzled in a light madeira jus was a divine, substantial appetiser. The three main courses were indulgent. Charred bavette, with a tarragon and lemon jus served with fondant potato and Jacobs ladder croquette was hearty and wholesome. The light gnocchi tossed in a […]

Sitting at the foothills of the Alps, besides the fish pond in Zug, the Fischteich Lech is not to be missed. With a traditional, wooden chalet feel, there’s something rather cosy and quaint about this restaurant. One can’t help but feel like you have been transported back in time. Although this restaurant is renowned for it’s fish, it seemed the perfect opportunity to try the Kasenodelsuppe- a traditional Austrian cheese dumpling soup. The soft, semolina dumplings sandwiched together with cheese, tossed into a piping hot clear broth , were surprisingly light and delicious. All the fish on the menu is freshly caught daily, and it really seems to make a remarkable difference to the flavour. Accompanied by a rainbow salad, the buttery pan-fried trout had a perfectly crispy skin. Served on a bed of spaghetti, alongside a tomato sauce, this dish was cooked to perfection. The freshness of the fish really turned a humble dish into something special. The Kaiserchmarren were recommended as a local favourite, not to be missed. When there are pancakes on offer, there’s not much persuasion required for dessert. From the moment the warm, sugar dusted balls of pancake were brought to the table, came a gentle, sweet aroma. The pancakes are rather moreish, especially when doused with the sweet apple and plum compoted. Served on a platter made for […]
World Nutella Day, Hummingbird Bakery, Richmond
As cupcake connoisseurs, finding the perfect cupcake is life’s mission. February 5th marked World Nutella Day, when we found the “Nutella” cupcake at the Hummingbird Bakery. A light, airy chocolate cupcake topped with a smooth, sweet, chocolatey Nutella buttercream. It’s pure genius, blending buttercream and Nutella for the perfect cupcake topping. Topped with a handful of hazelnuts, adds a perfect crunch to the cupcake. Nutella is our weaknesses, as it’s equally versatile as it is delicious. The Hummingbird Bakery has popped up around London and in Dubai. They have a lovely selection of cakes for Valentine’s Day. Their American style red velvet and salted caramel cakes are definitely worth a try too. Better still try out their recipe book, and recreate their marvellous recipes.

The Pottery Tapas Bar, Kingston
Spanish tapas are best enjoyed as a group. Small tapas plates are great for sharing and exploring a menu. The Pottery Tapas Bar is all twinkly with fairy lights which gives it a festive feeling. Chairs topped with Santa Clause covers gives it a quirky, fun feel. We savoured a few of the mouthwatering dishes from the extensive menu and they were all delicious. From the hearty portion of nachos smothered in guacamole, the crispy white bait, to the the flavoursome seafood paella. The lamb with mint gravy was succulent and well seasoned, the calamari in a garlic sauce was lovely too. The chorizo was great and the meatballs in a tangy tomato sauce were moreish. The moist chocolate cake topped with glacé cherries and a crown of a sweet spun sugar, was rather impressive. The service is excellent and although great for a group, the candlelit setting is quite romantic too.
Magical Walk in the Enchanted Woodland of Syon Park
Syon Park is stunning all year round, but the colours from the Autumnal trees is just glorious. Annually, as the days get shorter and the nights draw in, Syon Park is transformed into an Enchanted Woodland. It’s an immersive, magical trail through the lush gardens, by nightfall. Wrap up warm, as there’s over a mile of fairy lights, and light projections bringing the woodland to life. The reflection of the multi-coloured illuminations onto the water, is just majestic. There are interesting sculptures to be found between the installations. There are mystical fairy doors, and lamp shades swaying from the trees. With giant sweets amongst the shrubs, one can’t help but feel like you have arrived in Wonderland. After all, Syon Park is where “Alice Through the Looking Glass” was filmed. There’s a touch of Christmas spirit, with baubles and snow flakes blowing in the wind. As the mist meanders, the rumblings of a dragon can be heard. And amidst the waters lurks Syon’s very own monster. It’s all rather surreal. The rotating disco ball hanging high up in the trees is dazzling and twinkling, as you walk through the woods. There’s plenty of fun to be had making shadows in the darkness of the […]

Center Parcs, Woburn Forest
A holiday usually consists of sun, sea, sand, and sipping mojitos by a tropical beach on the other side of the world at a five star resort. So when we booked a summer break in England, we could only cross our fingers and hope for the best. However we were pleasantly surprised by Center Parcs, Woburn Forest.

Flip Out trampoline parks boast some of the largest trampolines in the U.K and is flipping awesome. As soon as you enter the huge arena, there’s an overwhelming number of neon trampolines. There’s an unmistakable sound of excitable children and adults jumping up and down. Starting at the beginning is best to get warmed up, because as as you delve in deeper, and discover the advanced areas, with high towers to jump on and off; this area is for adults only! Until you actually climb the towers, you don’t fully appreciate how scary it is jumping from such heights. Flip out invites you to conquer your fears and explore your daring side. Heading out of the adult only area, there are a pair of trampolines that see you diving into a giant pool filled with spongey cubes. This was an absolute blast. It doesn’t get better than this. Climbing out of the pool was a bit of a struggle but it’s definitely worth it and we couldn’t resist jumping right back right in again. Or rather falling back in at the gladiator arena after a duel. Once you are well acquainted and warmed up, there is a competitive, timed ninja warrior course, to test your ninja […]
Lindt Cafe, Tokyo
Tokyo’s Ginza region has some amazing places including the Lindt chocolate Cafe. The red Lindt truffle balls lure you in to this quaint cafe and we are sure glad that they did. The menu is mouthwatering. It’s a tough choice deciding between the decadent desserts. Chocolate fondants are a guilty pleasure but even more so when there is hot Lindt chocolate seeping out. The sundaes are divine, with layers of creamy chocolate ice cream with swirls of truffle and crunchy peanut brittle. Lindt Cafe, Ginza, Japan
