Fed up with celebrity chefs drizzling sauces over undercooked pieces of meat? I am!

I regularly dine out and am happy to share my restaurant experiences, and views on food, with you.

Taste of London

Taste of London

The Taste of London in Regent's Park, which ran from 19-22 June, has been a success.

Regent's Park was smothered in celebrity chefs, restaurateurs and foodies for the fifth festival of its kind.

The festival was a chance for foodies to sample some of London's top restaurants' signature dishes; including creamed lobster and brandy soup from Le Gavroche, squid salad with coconut passion fruit dressing from Benares, seven-hour braised lamb shoulder and mash from Tom’s Kitchen, and lemon tart from Rhodes Twenty-Four.

Guests also were given the chance to meet their favourite chefs in the Waterstone's book signing lounge, where authors such as Tana Ramsay and Jane Fearnley-Whittingstall gave Q&A sessions.

Even the weather was just about reasonable for the event!

La Barca Revisited

La Barca Revisited

Top marks again to one of my favourite Italian restaurants in London, La Barca, for presenting another excellent meal, hospitality and evening.

I went there last Friday with my mother and uncle, and we had a splendid evening; my poussin was superb as was the rest of our meal.

I am very happy to continue to recommend La Barca.
