Nosh Garden Kitchen is tucked away in the leafy corner of Bayswater, located perfectly at La Suite West. This oasis is the ideal spot to unwind and enjoy a range of delicious, nutrient dense food, where a very special vegan menu is served.

Nosh are already well established in the health industry. They have pioneered home weight loss and detox programmes in the UK with raw juices, while collecting many awards along the way. They provide nutrient dense, intelligent food while not compromising on flavour.

La Suite West has perfect chilled summer vibe and it felt like being on holiday.

 

 

Nosh Garden Kitchen Menu

I had the pleasure of trying their new vegan menu available at the Nosh Garden Kitchen. All of the foods we had were additive, dairy, gluten, egg and preservative free and naturally high in nutrients being primarily raw. Funnily enough nosh means to eat food enthusiastically – here’s some of the treats we noshed:

 

Starters: courgette rolls with pesto and tapenede, beetroot carpaccio with activated cashew cheese and capers

Mains: Vegan Caesar Salad with Tofu

Dessert: Chocolate brownie with banana and vanilla iScream

Drinks: virgin apple martinis, strawberry mojitos, fresh mint tea

Nosh now offers a number of niche diet programmes including low carb, low sugar, paleo, vegan, pegan (paleo + vegan), alkalising and cleansing.

Post-dining, guests can happily relax in the peaceful terrace with Italian coffee or a pot of loose hibiscus, mint or green tea.

La Suite West – Hyde Park will also continue to serve their award-winning raw vegan alternative to the quintessentially British tradition of afternoon tea.

With excellent customer service offered by La Suite West staff, we felt very well attended to.

In Tuscany, the specialty is the Fiorentina: an enormous and succulent T-bone steak (imagine a prime rib, but twice as cool, with two beef tenderloins on either side of a big cheeky bone) cooked, in respect to tradition, on the grill. In this region, they always say that if the steak isn’t more than three fingers thick, it’s a carpaccio.

Since the beginning of the Big Mamma adventure, they have gotten their kicks out of exploring new fields of Italian gastronomy. And when their own chef Rocco came home from a weekend in Florence and told them about the incredible T-bone that he’d eaten at Da Mario, they just couldn’t help themselves.

They have a 3-metre long barbecue (size does matter) on which they grill 1kg T-bone steaks and 1.3kg Tomahawk steaks, using a mix of Cherrywood and quebracho to infuse the meat with unparalleled flavour. But the recipe is pure Tuscan tradition.

They have taken over the meat production from A to Z: easy

Their challenge? To serve tender, tasty, crazy good meat 2 to 3 times cheaper than you’ll find elsewhere. To do so, they buy the beasts whole, cook every part and eat the whole animal. It helps that they feed the animals themselves to obtain extraordinarily tender corn-fed meat, and that they mature the meat for at least 30 days to give it epic flavour and depth.

It doesn’t hurt them to know that buying the animals whole is more responsible and they were also disappointed with the quality/price ratio of the meat they were finding.

These days, if you want to eat hormone-free that was raised with love, either you can’t find it or it costs a fortune. That’s why they recreated their own industry from A to Z, with their own cows and their breeder in France. They made an exception to their 100% Italian rule, because the best meat is found in France. In fact, even the Italians get their meat from here.

They want to serve quality meat, that they are proud to serve to our children and at a price that’s accessible to more than just the dudes who created Google.

Now, that we finally have a bit of sunshine in the UK, it is important to curate our diet accordingly…
First tip – fresh fruits and vegetables. Why? Well, not only do fruits have amazing healthy components but the vitamins are much more activated for better results during the summer.

Find our little list of the primordial summer healthy food options:

WATERMELON

With its vitamins, the watermelon is one of the best healthy fruit. In fact, citrus fruits have been known to participate to the cancer prevention according to many medical journals. The watermelon has also the capacity to reduce the cholesterol level.

SHRIMP 

If you love your summer barbecues, then you can never go wrong with some shrimps. The perfect healthy food, also great for anyone who is weight conscious. In fact, the shrimp is rich in protein and poor in fat. It has an excellent nutritional value.

CORN 

Corn is not just a tasty summer addition to any menu but is also very rich in vitamins and minerals, and has the property to reduce the risk of cancer or heart disease, like the most of our recommended food on this list.

CELERY 

One of the low-calorie food, the celery is full of essential nutrients. It can also help you to loose some weight, facilitate your digestion, protect you from many diseases, strengthen the brain… There are so many advantages associated with Celery…You’ve just got to love it!

MUSHROOMS 

Many compounds have been identified in mushrooms that show potential for boosting immunity. The mushroom is the only vegetable which produces Vitamin D thanks to the sun. This is why it is not just perfect but an important addition to your summer healthy diet.

APRICOT 

The apricot is recognized for its benefits on the skin. I recommend it for those into sports and pregnant women. 100 grams of fresh apricots gives you 12% of vitamin C, 12% of vitamin A, and 6% of potassium required for the body.

90’s musician Alex James from Brit Pop band Blur is now a food writer and the founder of Big Feastival.  James has recently been researching the scientific secrets of pairing food to music. Yes, you heard that right?

Food and music: two of the greatest pleasures in life. But did you know we appreciate certain dishes more when listening to particular kinds of music?

Ahead of this year’s The Big Feastival, the UK’s leading music and food festival, host Alex James met with Dr Ophelia Deroy – cognitive neuroscientist and Deputy Director at the Institute of Philosophy – to discover first-hand how our music choices can affect the way we taste. The duo tested four dishes from The Big Feastival’s street food vendors along with a variety of musical styles, discussing how the correct combination enhances our overall experience and makes positive memories even stronger.

Dr Deroy explains: “A change in music – whether it’s pitch, tempo, volume or instrumental – actually alters our wider perceptions, even in a single bite.”

The research shows that high-pitched music can bring out fruity and citrus notes in a dish, as sampled by Alex with Oli Baba’s halloumi fries, which are sprinkled with fresh pomegranate seeds and seasoning.

Dark flavours – such as the velvety chocolate from Churros Garcia – are truly intensified with the addition of deep and heavy bass in a song.

Dr Deroy adds: “When slow, relaxed music is played and people are asked to describe what they taste, we find the answers are detailed and descriptive. When we ramp up the beats per minute, the fast music encourages faster chewing and people are less likely to pick up on all the flavours in the dish.”

The individual elements in Breddos Tacos’ pulled pork dish become more obvious to Alex as the music slows which, according to the research, will strengthen his memory of the overall tasting experience.

Dr Deroy also notes that loud music amplifies the spiciness in each mouthful of Rainbo’s gyozas: “Some spices stimulate your facial nerves and lips, and these are the same mechanical vibrations that loud music produces. The two elements combined make for a very spicy experience!”

Following the tasting session, Alex James commented: “I wasn’t sure I would notice a difference between the flavours, but it really worked. The combination of good music and delicious food has always brought me great joy, especially through the festival, and this just goes to show that if you can get that perfect match, you’re onto a real winner!”

The hotly anticipated addition to Central London’s dining scene opens 6th May 2017 and specialises in the uniquely fresh and vibrant flavours of Mexico and Peru. Situated on one of London’s most iconic squares, Leicester Square Kitchen offers contemporary small plates in a stylish and relaxed, shared dining environment.

Sister restaurant to May Fair Kitchen and Monmouth Kitchen, which is currently TripAdvisor’s number one rated Peruvian restaurant in London, Leicester Square Kitchen features an equally inventive menu, which draws on the distinctive tastes and ingredients found in contemporary Mexican and Peruvian food.

Diners can choose from signature dishes like the Mexican-inspired Mayan-spiced marinated chicken ensalada, flavoured with cashews, black lime and sesame oil, or tiger prawn soft tacos with spicy papaya habanero salsa. The Peruvian influence is clear in the Robata-grilled Pisco-glazed smoked paprika ribs and lime; Robata-seared tenderstem broccoli and charred kale and shimeji mushroom anticucho, served in a hot clay pot. Desserts also draw on the fragrant flavours of the region, featuring coconut, lime, guava and mango. Each dish is complemented by a range of cocktails, each drawing on Mexican and Peruvian roots, including an Aztec Negroni, blended with Maestro Dobel Humito and bitters, and a Chilli & Lychee Margarita which features Ilegal Joven mezcal, Kwai Feh lychee liqueur and green chilli and lime notes.

The new Leicester Square Kitchen is defined by dark architectural wall sections and enlarged windows looking onto Leicester Square and capturing the energy of red carpet events. The white bar, clad with white architectural glazed brick has a zinc top complemented by white bar chairs, where guests can either sit for a drink or dine from the live taco bar

Tables of varying heights have the definitive white calacarta marble this time with black legs and De La Espada butterfly chairs in black ash and caramel leather upholstery. This recognisable ‘Kitchen’ has a smarter edge. Hurel long benches with caramel leather pads and back rests wrap around architectural brick walls ready for guests to lean back and enjoy a tacos off white marble tables. Outside, smart black awnings with refined white stripes cover black and white Kartell chairs surrounded with black planters filled with shrubs and flowering plants that will keep pace with the seasons.

“Leicester Square Kitchen joins our portfolio of ‘Kitchens’ which includes Monmouth Kitchen and May Fair Kitchen. Like the others it offers an inventive mix of flavours offering the best contemporary shared dining with a menu that draws on the beautifully fresh, spicy flavours of Mexico and Peru. Given the iconic location, inviting interiors and innovative cuisine, we’re confident our guests will have the very best experience – whether they join us for breakfast, lunch, dinner or an evening drink”, explains Amir Jati, ex-Nobu Head of Private Dining and now Service Excellence Director for Edwardian Hotels London, owners of Leicester Square Kitchen.

Leicester Square Kitchen offers all-day dining with breakfast served from 7-10:30am Monday to Friday, and until 11am on Sundays. Lunch is from 12-3pm Monday to Friday (until 3:30pm on Sundays), while dinner is served from 5-10:45pm Sunday – Wednesday, and until 11:15pm Thursday-Saturday.

Introducing Cacciari’s who have two unique restaurants situated in both Brompton Road and Pembroke Road. We decided to pop down to the Pembroke Road offering to find out what makes this family restaurant stand out from all the others.  Upon making my way into the dinning space, the interior was a mix between traditional and contemporary.

The open planned set up enables for a socially communed environment leaving guests feeling like they are in an idyllic home away from home experience at the heart of the city.

The menu comprised of traditional Bolognian cuisine including classic Piadina, fresh homemade pasta (made in the restaurant basement by mother of co-owner, Marco!) and wood-fired pizza.

Picture of Cacciari's in Kensington, London

Great service, great food and what was most outstanding is the quality of their ingredients which  i was told  70% of it was sourced from Italy’s food capital: the Emilia Romagna region in Northern Italy. For those who remember we covered the region a few years ago (Read Chelsea Monthly goes to Emilia Romagna).  Emilia–Romagna today is considered as one of the richest and most developed regions in Europe and has the third highest GDP per capita in Italy. Bologna, the region’s capital, has one of Italy’s highest quality of life and has highly advanced and modern social services. Emilia–Romagna is also a major cultural and touristic centre, being the home of the oldest university in the Western World, containing numerous Renaissance cities (such as Modena, Parma and Ferrara). A major centre for food and automobile production (Emilia–Romagna is home of numerous iconic gastronomical and automotive industries, such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati and Ducati) and having a lively and colourful coastline, with numerous tourist resorts, such as Rimini and Riccione.

So, why not pop down to Cacciari’s for your own taste of Emila Romagna on home turf!

London needs as many rooftop bars as it can get during the summer, having only a small window to enjoy those blazing hot days and steamy nights. This is perhaps why the French Provincial restaurant, Orrery, Marylebone, does so well as we need people who understand sunshine to know the dynamics of rooftop sunning. Their roof terrace doubles up as a beautiful bar taking inspiration from the back gardens of Provence. It’s dotted with tea-lamps, olive trees, and of course those familiar lavender rows that we cannot help but associate with the smell of French sun. As the wine boxes cum plant-pots suggest, there is an array of amazing wines and of course champagne that you can sip and enjoy in the open air.

The Orrery Terrace Rooftop has been nominated this year for the National Luxury & Lifestyle Awards in the best bar category. You can vote for them from the 19th of July 2014 here.

As usual, people were spectating the hats just as much as the horses at the thankfully warm and sunny Royal Ascot event this year. Smart Experiences sought to introduce a different Ascot experience in the Royal Ascot Village, a small complex opposite the grand stand made up of dining rooms, marquees and a stylish bar which had an established sporting legacy as it was used at many of the 2012 London Olympics events. It was a relaxed atmosphere, with people lounging in the sun in between races and listening to a fun guitar, saxophone and singing trio who lightly tinkled out old and new favourites.

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 10.51.53 Lunch was served in a large dining room of the Village. The guests enjoyed a three course meal with a beef carpaccio starter, a wonderfully light poached salmon main and a dessert buffet with a host of summery, delicate deserts such as lemon posset and chocolate cherry cakes. Later on, after a few heavy bets and losses, spirits were lifted as afternoon tea was served, offering raspberry smoothies, miniature scones, cupcakes and good old-fashioned, English finger sandwiches. Being a guest in the Royal Ascot Village definitely affords you one of the best views in the arena. A small walkway brings you right to the edge of the track where you can feel the ground vibrate as the horses plummet by you. Behind this is the dramatic backdrop of the famous grandstand which teems with people. This of course means you have the best seat for the Royal procession, definitely upping your chances of getting a wave from Her Majesty.

Bets can be placed in the comfort of the Village or from the bookies just next to the track. First-timers were definitely feeling a bit uneasy about trying they’re hand at betting, but with renowned jockeys giving some great tips for every race at lunch, you’ll always know which horse to put your money on Getting the full experience of Ascot could not be better at the Royal Ascot Village. A great place to hold functions, or even if you would just like some amazing beverage and food along with your betting, this will definitely be the most strategic position of the day.
