Recently I got to experience a Burger Monday Pop Up! Now these events are hard to get tickets for as they are so popular. Even my hardcore burger friends can’t get a seat! Luckily my random checking of Twitter found the link to buying tickets within an hour of them going on sale! Success!

My First Week at the English Pig

Due to the success of Stokey Secret Suppers over the last year, I felt it was time to move into the world of food – full time! So I handed my notice in at my job in the city and I approached Johnnie Mountain (From Great British Menu fame!) who runs The English Pig restaurant in the City of London and told him my secret supper story, my ambitions to run some sort of dining establishment and how I wanted to gain restaurant experience – To my delight he said he would give me some work in his kitchen and teach me all I need to know!

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

Back on a cold December morning last year, I was one of the lucky ones to get a booking to Heston’s new London venture “Dinner” – A play on words, due to the historic meaning of the word “Dinner” – Over the few hundred years it has meant anything from eating at midday to last thing at night. Therefore the dishes are inspired by ingredients and recipes dating back to the 1300s. Heston Inspired me to cook, so I had to go to Dinner!
