Paxton & Whitfield – Fondue Recipes!

This week we had the immense pleasure of visiting the flagship Paxton & Whitfield store in Jermyn Street, Piccadilly to learn about their cheeses, a bit of history and taste some amazing fondues.  Paxton & Whitfield kindly shared the fondue recipes with us, and this post will largely be sharing the love of these so you can stock up on your cheesy goodness and prep these for yourselves at home.

Wrap It Up – American Smokey 

Although I have experienced Wrap It Up before, this was our first time to the Aldermanbury location and we had a specific mission: try the new American Smokey wrap. Fortunately, myself and Toli are fans and friends of beef brisket, the main component of this new wrap so we were both looking forward to this and also slightly fearful of the brisket quality.

But let’s start from the very beginning, shall we? I’ve heard it’s a very good place to start – thank you Julie Andrews.

Cafe East – Roman Road, Bow

Sunday morning…well, afternoon…I like a lie in, don’t judge me! Not wanting to wander too far from home, I thought it was about time that I explored some local options.  In the last few months, Roman Road in Mile End/Bow has seen some great new additions – one of those is Cafe East.

German Doner Kebab – Angel, London

It’s a Thursday in February. Where are we? Angel, Islington and I’m about to try my first German doner kebab.

Bukowski Grill at Boxpark – Shoreditch, London

Next to Shoreditch High Street Overground station in Boxpark you’ll find many a shop, boutique, nail bar and foodery.  One of these fooderies is the Shoreditch location of Bukowski Grill. Personally I love Boxpark and the interesting array of golden shop nuggets it brings us over such a small piece of ground. However just a note to those of you expecting a full restaurant – this is the size of a shipping container.

Within this shipping container I’d say you could seat 12 people max on Bukowski’s wooden bench booths. As Boxpark has a kind of sharing is caring feel to it, there’s also shared bench style seating outside but as it’s February it was too chilly for us so we opted for an inside seat.  It was a fairly quiet day and we were shown to our booth quickly then served straight away.
