This month Meriel Armitage’s Club Mexicana and The Spread Eagle, London’s first 100% vegan pub in Hackney, will host a series of one-off Taco Tuesdays to kick start the summer. Joining Meriel at the pass will be a line-up of Club Mexicana’s friends from the London food scene, including vegetarian chef and best-selling Author Anna Jones, chef Neil Rankin of Temper, and organic sourdough pizza experts Radio Alice, all ready to put their own vegan spin on the traditional Mexican taco, whilst The Spread Eagle’s Sherri Lee Eastabrook will be shaking up the pub’s signature cocktails to wash things down. We love those examples of collaboration, we spotted a couple of them around one product in London, like for example the pita bread and Kulcha. Check out the inspiration! lees verder

The Vive La Tarte bakery, located in the Ferry Building in San Francisco created the Tacro, the newest croissant-hybrid food craze. You have to eat the Tacro like a taco, it’s stuffed with savoury fillings but it’s made of crispy croissant puff pastry. We wrote about it in our ‘Trends we spotted in week 4 of 2018’ and recently got images, that’s when we decided to write an article about it. And at their Facebook page we saw that they’ve got a new creation: Gotcha Mocha! If you’re a baker you might want to go to San Francisco for inspiration but if you’re a tourist you might consider to simply enjoy a Tacro for lunch at Vive la Tarte! lees verder

June 1st 2018 the Raffles Europejski in Warsaw opened. Bringing over 160 years of history and heritage to the culturally rich Raffles Hotels & Resorts brand, this fully restored Polish icon joins Paris (Le Royal Monceau) and Raffles Istanbul as the third European destination where the inimitable Raffles experience can be found. Not only art but also the skill of Polish craftsmanship is represented within the hotel, whether in the lighting, in the carved burl wood headboards, the parquetry floors or the Warsaw skyline etched into the grey marble bathroom walls, rooting Raffles Europejski firmly in Poland. This sense of place is emphasised by the venerated hotel’s location on the historic Royal Route, with views from spacious and elegant guestrooms onto the Old Town, the Presidential Palace and, across the city’s biggest square, to the eternal flame burning at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the leafy Saxon Gardens behind. The 106 rooms and suites are classically stylish with blackened oak floors, contemporary Polish art, a corner library and sleek marble-clad bathrooms with Art Deco touches. All Raffles hotels have their own signature in which art is very important, you will enjoy wandering through the hotels open spaces whilst enjoying the art!  lees verder
