Toronto

This was my second time in Toronto, but my first proper visit. We spent a few days walking around and discovering more of this vibrant city. Canada is a welcoming country with kind and friendly people. I only encountered smily faces and one can tell that Canadians are proud of their country. Toronto has a…

Bilbao – trip report

This was my first visit to Bilbao, and it didn’t disappoint. It rained the two days I was visiting, but to be honest that didn’t put me off from walking around and enjoying everything this city has to offer.

The Hospital Club – London

The Hospital Club is one of those places in my “to do list”. As a Londoner I have a long list of places that I would like to experience but I haven’t had the time yet, so this one deserves a long overdue visit. First for drinks, ideally to stay and finally a possible membership? This…

Kitchen gadgets design

I want to show you some practical design. The one that will fill your kitchen units with lots of useful items. The problem comes when you use that device only once and it keeps taking space but you do not really want to get rid of it. Anyway, I think there is some serious thinking…

Ibérica Marylebone – Spanish tapas & design

I was due a visit to Ibérica Marylebone a long time ago. I tend to avoid Spanish food outside Spain, as it is generally overpriced and tiny portions. The tapas culture allows you to have a very nice meal trying many different dishes, but in previous experiences the restaurants serve two meatballs or a stupid toast…

Hello Fresh revisited

I still think this is a very clever idea, food and recipes with the exact ingredients delivered to your doorstep. A very well designed idea. There is nothing less appealing than heading to the local supermarket after a long day at work. Especially if you have no idea about what to get and you are…

Hello Fresh, dine at home.

A few weeks ago my girlfriend received a box of ingredients for cooking some recipes at home and to review the company on her blog. I have to say the food was delicious and will certainly get at least one of those boxes per month. But I want to write about the concept itself. The…
