October is a month for :
… ringing up friends for dates in fun cocktail bars in Fitzrovia or Shoreditch,
… visiting the London Book Review bookstore and its cake shop in Bloomsbury,
… making the most of seasonal squashes and root vegetables everywhere,
… visiting IncrEdible Edibles on show at Kew Gardens !
Find the Kew app on your smart phone now to plan your visit.
I loved the humongous magic mushrooms sculpture display, enjoyed the vanilla orchid flavoured ice cream, marvelled at the sight of the dozen of chillies varieties in the lily pads house, browsed rows over rows of gorgeous marrow flowers, bright beet root and elegant kale leaves… Why have flower displays when you can have vegetable ones?! It’s all edible and wonderful at Kew until the end of the month.
And, last but not least: …celebrating all libras’ birthdays by booking into london restaurant festival! You have a choice of dates and themes ranging from the Shard Gourmet Odyssee, tapas tour, Japanese journey or Cicchetti trail. Lots of top restaurants in London are also offering special menus at fantastic prices. I am real lucky it’s my birthday month… I think I ll go Japanese this time. Sayonara!
