Recipe: Chicken Supremes in lovage butter en papillote by Chef Marcus Bean

May 15 2017

This wonderful and simple recipe for Chicken Supremes in lovage butter en papillote was kindly donated to London Mums by Chef Marcus Bean as featured in new recipe book 365 Chefs for Charity: ChariTable Bookings Signature Dish. I would describe this book as the Cookery Bible of this century. I have never seen a more comprehensive recipe book. The great thing is also that ChariTable Bookings is a philanthropic restaurant booking platform that raises funds for UK registered charities at absolutely no cost! When making a booking through charitablebookings.org £1 for EVERY diner will be donated to charity. The ChariTable Bookings Signature Dish recipe book helps raise even more funds and awareness for charity. The book retails at £40.00 including a £5 donation to a charity of the recipient’s choice. It's definitely great value considering its size and weight.

London Mums May 2017 newsletter including Half Term activities for families

May 08 2017

 

Dear London Mums

Spring does not seem to launch and Summer is already at the door. My son is in year 6 and I feel these primary school years have gone so quickly. Before I know my son will be finishing secondary school and will be gone to Uni... I reflect on time and my past 10 years running the London Mums community. Wow! Time flies. In this newsletter, I have packed lots of ideas for the forthcoming May Half Term activities for families in London and beyond as well as ideas for the Summer holidays. In the meantime I am working on our 10th anniversary magazine issue including interviews with Hollywood actress Reese Witherspoon and former tennis ace Annabel Croft, among other fab content.

Recipe: My Granny’s Yogurt cake (child-friendly)

Mar 28 2017
This recipe for a simple yogurt cake is very child-friendly and is one of my Grandmother from Italy with a few modern variations. My 10 year-old son Diego has made it for me this Mother's Day. It is such a simple cake that children can make it without supervision (except for when the cake needs to be put in the oven). You can make it for Birthday parties with inside filling of either jam or Nutella or custard at your taste. Cake baking and decorating is one of those activities that will keep kids entertain for hours, particularly important during the school holidays.

Dining in Chelsea at The Imperial is a galactic experience

Dec 17 2015
It's Star Wars week. The Force is strong so I decided to dine at one of the best new restaurants in Chelsea for a galactic gastronomic experience. Dinner at The Imperial totally exceeded my expectations. I was offered food that was worth of the best Michelin star restaurant except that the price is not as high. Look away now if you haven't eaten yet.
