On the contrary: i'm actually in the process of pimping up my blog and website and bringing them together.  So watch this space!

Anyway, in the meantime here's something i want to bang on about a bit: I'm going to be doing The Loft Project in late September, along with a mate - Mark (the sous chef at Nahm).

It's basically a special private dining space owned by Nuno Mendes of Viajante.  Top chefs from all over the world cook - there doing multi course menus for a single table of 16 diners.  


We are doing two nights - the 23rd and 24th of Sept.  

The food will be at least 8 courses of Southeast Asian food, plus canapes and petit fours.  

We're going to be finding the best & most interesting Asian ingredients. smuggling some things from Bangkok and combining it all with some of the best British meat & seafood. 

I urge you to come! See here for more info and to book:
