Is this Britain's most luxurious picnic?

Does Coworth Park host the most luxurious picnic in Britain?

Here in Britain, we aren't exactly blessed with good weather often. So it was quite strange finding ourselves with weeks upon weeks of scorching sun. I think we forgot what rain actually was. So true to classic British nature, we went out in droves with our picnic baskets and rugs under arms. However picnics really do range in quality. From soggy tin foil wrapped sandwiches, all the way up to bone china plates in whicker baskets.  However I don't think anything quite compares to the Michelin starred restaurant food and champagne picnic at Coworth Park. It is quite possibly the most luxurious picnic in Britain. 

Beauty and the Beast Afternoon Tea | Town House at the Kensington Hotel

Friday, 24 August 2018

Who didn't grow up surrounded by Disney as a child? I remember every Saturday we would go to the library and could rent a video (the free alternative to BlockBuster) and I'd work my way through the Disney collection. Whilst Mulan is still my ultimate favourite Disney Princess (she's so kick-ass), Belle will always hold a special place in my heart. Beauty and the Beast is one of the great classic's, with a beautiful love story, special and fun characters and a fight against evil. Plus the original animated film came out the year I was born.

So upon hearing that there was a Beauty and the Beast afternoon tea in London called 'A Tale As Old As Time' I think I did a little squeal and probably London did a collective one as well.

SCOOP: A Wonderful Ice Cream World

Tuesday, 14 August 2018

You can't buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream, and thats pretty much the same thing.

I don't think there are two mens names that evoke such love more than Ben and Jerry, or Ben and Jerry's to be precise. Which is why when a little email landed in my inbox from the very duo, my heart did a little flutter.

You see, there's a very cool exhibition on at the moment over at Kings Cross, and cool is the optimal word to describe, as it's a dedicated ice cream exhibition!

Everything You Need to Know About Italy’s Favourite Tradition, Aperitivo

Thursday, 2 August 2018

With all the hot weather we've been having here in the UK, you'd be forgiven for thinking we were in Italy! I don't think anyone has ever seen such long sunshine and warm weather here before. Whilst us Brits are famous for a spot of tea, personally I can't drink tea in hot weather. Plus, I feel like tea isn't the most social of drinks either, and when the sun is this glorious, I just want to gather with all my friends.

So, with that in mind, let's take a leaf out of the Italians’ book and delve into the world of Aperitivo.

The Italians are known for their love of food and drink, and aperitivo is all about that. It is in fact a time to drink and enjoy some small plates and nibbles to whet the appetite in preparation for dinner.

Aperitivo was born in the late 18th century in Torino by Antonio Benedetto Carpano who created the first aperitivo drink: vermouth, and as you probably guessed it, this went on to be Carpano, the international bestselling drink brand.

Today, the concept is now an Italian tradition, where for a glorious couple of hours all over Italy — generally between 7pm and 9pm, Italians meet to relax over a glass of wine or a cocktail and light food.
