Mercado Lonja del Barranco, Seville

29 Jun

Barranco_Market_Sevilla_9Seville has joined the trend and can finally brag about its own gourmet market. Mercado Lonja del Barranco opened its doors last year to offer a modern take on traditional tapas and other typical specialties, becoming a highlight in Sevillle’s gastronomic scene. Located inside a World Heritage Historical Site and next to the famous Puente de Triana, this gleaming new space has conquered all kinds of public: those locals who look for a cool casual dinner with friends and those tourists who look for the best jamón in town.

Atelier September, Copenhagen

22 Jun

Atelier_September_4This could be the best discovery we’ve made so far thanks to Instagram. Oddly enough, this popular and massively instagrammed cafe in Copenhagen offers no wi-fi. It represents to perfection that back to the roots trend that is steadily spreading across the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Natural produce, minimal concepts and basic preparations. Of course, we wanted to give it a try. Continue reading

Southbank Centre market, London

9 Jun

Southbank_market_4We would love to tell you that we had planned a visit to this little market because we know all the best food markets in London, but the truth is that we stumbled upon its lovely colourful stalls during a random walk. But aren’t these surprising findings the best moments while travelling? Continue reading

Geist, Copenhagen

Geist_8You might be surprised to read this but that picture is not an avantgard painting. That is the most beautiful lobster tartare: look at that texture, those colours! Well, we think this picture represents Geist perfectly, our favourite restaurant in Copenhagen: Geist is surprising and innovative, full of personality and unexpected combinations. Continue reading

Slow food and living market, Rosewood hotel London

25 May

Rosewood_Market_15We found out that the courtyard of the magnificent Rosewood Hotel in London hosted a wonderful slow food market every Sunday, so not even the windy rainy weather was going to stop us: we were determined to enjoy the delicious scents, the colourful stalls and the natural, tasty products that the market had to offer.

Ugly little pies

18 May

Ugly_pies_2Did we mention that we love brunch? Oh maybe we did a couple of times… (Exhibit A, B & C). It might be the sun shining a little bit these days, or the fact that after two crazy weeks at work we finally have a few days off, but we are looking forward to preparing huge Spring brunches for our friends. We’ve been testing some recipes and this one is the real winner. They might not look like much, but these little bacon, egg and cheddar pies are perfect. Tender yet a tad crunchy, soft but with a nice spicy kick thanks to a small amount of mustard à l’Ancienne and really easy to prepare. That’s exactly what you are looking for if you are having guests over, isn’t it?

Spuntino, London

11 May

Spuntino_London_227 stools and a popcorn machine. That’s all we knew about Spuntino. Quite intriguing, no? A couple of weeks ago we decided to look for this tiny restaurant in Soho. We found its discreet entrance and we saw the 27 stools and the pop corn machine. We came in, we ordered almost everything on the menu (we ate popcorn as well, obviusly) and we decided Spuntino was going to be a new favorite in London. Another favourite restaurant in London you ask? Well, yes. When you see the mac and cheese and the steak and egg, you’ll understand. Continue reading

Brunch salad

4 May

brunch_salad_3Oh brunch… We know you are considered so out of style lately, but we still love you. And even though we tend to load up on carbs like crazy, we sometimes want you healthy and fresh and guilt free. For those (rare) occasions we always prepare this lovely crunchy salad with creamy runny poached eggs and a zingy lemony dressing. The perfect combination! And yes, you’ve guessed it right: with just a few ingredients and really easy to prepare… because this is how we roll. Hair flip.
