When you here about the sweet-meringue based treat of Macarons, to me even the name sounds fancy and I can guess that they'd be challenging to make. But, after attending a Macaron Making Class in London this week I've been proved wrong and can now proudly say I would be able to recreate these at home. Our lesson could not have taken place in a nicer kitchen that Jenius Socials' delightful kitchen in Islington, London or led by a better chef than Andrew. Read on to find out more...
Beer is one of the most popular drinks in Britain, and is as much a part of our culture as brick red telephone boxes, Morris dancing, and afternoon tea! Given its rich history and little-known making process, we were very excited to be invited along to a beer brewing masterclass with Home Brew Depot.
This week we had the exciting opportunity to visit one of our local vineyards in nearby Hastings, run by the Carr-Taylor family. Linda and David Carr-Taylor planted the 21 acre vineyard in 1971, and it's quickly grown to the 37 acres site it is today. Their son Alex, together with a small team, run the vineyard and its tours. Having won 36 awards and medals since 2011, Carr Taylor's wines are well recognised and the vineyard tours highly recommended.
As the summer is coming to an end and bad weather approaching, we have decided to put together a gift guide in aid of typical British weather. These activities are still just as fun and exciting - without having to battle the outdoor climate. Why not try something relaxing like a pampering spa session or an educational culinary class? If it is something more adventurous you're after, why not try indoor ice climbing or surfing, or even go-karting!
