Mike and I are currently in the process of buying a house in East London that was last decorated in the late 1970s. The bathroom fittings are pale peach, the floors are lined with the carpet equivalent of a terrible migraine, and the wallpaper is so bad, it’s almost good. Almost. The previous owner, an […]

With only half an avocado and a questionable courgette in the fridge on Saturday’s scorcher, I found myself searching for food-spiration on Instagram. (I know, I know. I hate me too.) Scrolling through, I saw an incredible-looking lunch someone had tagged at The Good Life Eatery, so I abandoned my sad veg and headed out to […]

Hatton Garden is for diamonds, Brick Lane is for curries and now there’s a little patch of Soho that’s all about puddings.
I love a good supper club. They’re sociable, good value, and – as tickets must be bought in advance – a welcome antidote to the tiresome trend of no-reservations policies.
I think I owe the Spanish nation an apology. I’ve been ignoring their fine cuisine for years now, most unfairly, so here it is: sorry, amigos, I’ve been a dick.

Native is my absolute new favourite restaurant, and it’s just around the corner from my new office. I’m very smug about this.
A personal hairdresser A personal chef These would be the two things I’ve always said I’d indulge in if I won the lottery. I wouldn’t change much else, but I’d live the rest of my life throwing elaborate dinner parties and tossing my fabulous hair. But while a blow dry in London will cost you […]

“What, so they don’t cook the food? What’s the point?!” This was the probably the most positive reaction I got from my colleagues when I announced I was off for a post-work dinner at a raw vegan restaurant. Everyone else was much more…colourful.

I’m proud to announce that duck and waffle, so delicious it has a restaurant named after it, is the latest dish in the Gibson culinary repertoire. It’s a bit fancier than my other specialties (oven chips, sausage sandwiches, eggy bread, etc.) – but, as Carla and I found at School of Wok last week, it’s […]

“It looks quite posh,” said the voice down the phone. “Are you nearly here yet?” It was the usual refrain from Mike and, indeed, anyone else foolish enough to arrive punctually at any sort of social engagement also attended by me. “I’m five minutes away,” I said, from the 55 bus, nine minutes away. “And go on in.
