This is a public announcement to all the fabulous ladies who enjoy the thought of eating and nattering during the half time between breakfast and lunch. My girl has decided to create a blog called For Ladies Wot Brunch which gives a detailed review of the hot spots around London and whether they live up to their reputation. Alas, you may even see yours truly appearing in some of the blog pictures!

So if you are lacking inspiration as to where to go for brunch, why not give this blog a try?

With Love From Friends – Way Back When!

4 Nov

WLFF 'WAY BACK WHEN' FUNDRAISING PARTY

Boys and girls!  Stop what you’re doing and pay attention!  With Love From Friends (WLFF) are back with an event!

Way Back When is this year’s charity bonanza, promising an evening of oversized afros and geeky glasses, twister, jenga and of course nostalgic muzaaak!

But what is WLFF I hear you ask?  Well, it is a charity started by a group of amazing women (some of whom are beautiful members of the Brunch Club!) who decided to stand up, take action and give back.  The ladies are dedicated to the advancement of quality education in Nigeria, through assisting charities and community school projects to raise funds and provide basic educational resources.  AMAZING RIGHT?!  Each year they host a big and bashy charity event and this year is no exception.  It promises to be an awesome evening, which hopefully will raise tons for Bethesda Child Support Agency, an inspiring Nigerian non-profit organisation.

We support.  So should you!

My Public Love Affair avec L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon!

10 Jul

So a friend and I went to L’Atelier de Joel Robuchon on a whim a coupla weeks ago.  We needed somewhere to eat near Holborn and it was the first suggestion.  Thank God we heeded this piece of fabulous advice!

Everything was on point – from the 3 layer fois gras, port reduction and parmesan foam amuse bouche (amaaazing!) to my mini fois gras and beef Robuchon burgers (deeelicious)  I lapped up every single thing that was presented to me like a french piglette!

I must apologise to my dinner date who was not amused by the random noises I made whilst lapping EVERYTHING up; it came from a place beyond normal dinner etiquette…  The food is seriously out of this world!

Apart from the world renowned purée potatoes which had me squealing like a giddy little girl, my favourite dish of the evening was dessert – Chocolat Tendance – Creamy Manjari chocolate, bitter chocolate sorbet and Oreo cookie crumb.  I don’t think there are any non-orgasmic-related adjectives to describe the culinary delight.  So I’ll just say it.  It was orgasmic!

Without sounding like the star-crossed Joël Robuchon-obsessed diner that I quite obviously am(!), I would strongly recommend the restaurant!  From the amazing food we ordered, to the plethora of in-between-surprises such as the pre-dessert raspberry coulis, pancotta and butter crumble cup and post-dessert petit fours, the evening was a foodie’s dream. I can’t comment on the price as I was lucky enough to be treated, but whatever it costs, it would have been well worth it.  2 Michelin Stars baby!  I’ll definitely be returning…

Délicieux!
