Thomas’s @ Burberry

As I’ve been spending rather a lot of time in London recently, I found it essential to discover my own secret sanctuary that provided both fries and fashion! Burberry opened it’s first ever restaurant this summer, hidden within the Regent Street flagship store. Thomas’s has been the go-to eatery for Vogue editors, Fashion Week goers and now EKD. #thechiclife Last week, I found myself sat by an open fire, supping the seasonal drink recommended by the lovely waiter – a blackberry and pomegranate fizz. A warm basket of sourdough was brought whilst I read Mindy Kalings new book (which I highly recommend BTW) and waited for my cheat day lunch. The food was delightful, the fries were the best I’ve ever had and the restaurant has the most delicate, charming and yet comforting atmosphere. Since the waitresses remembered me from previous visits, they informed me of the new breakfast menu coming in November and gave me an advanced copy to lust over! As you know, breakfast/brunch is my fave and so I’m excited to indulge next month! My …

Treats From The Hummingbird Bakery

Whilst in London this week, I made a special trip to South Kensington with the sole intention of picking up cupcakes and tray bakes from The Hummingbird Bakery! The bakery itself was a delightful little café, filled with a variety of gorgeous cakes. I ended up going for two salted caramel cupcakes, a frosted chocolate brownie and a raspberry cheesecake brownie, all of which I had swooned over in my Hummingbird Bakery cookbook last year. Unfortunately, my Dad and I couldn’t wait for me to photograph the tasty treats and ended up sharing a salted caramel cupcake – it was incredible, the perfect combination of salt and caramel! I often find something labelled ‘salted caramel’ super sweet, opposed to having that salted edge however this was perfection. Our high expectations were met when my family and I shared the yummy desserts and we definitely recommend the indulgence! EKD X

The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook

One of my favourite things to do is bake; we have multiple Mary Berry AGA cookbooks etc. however nothing quite like the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook, this one is certainly in a league of its own. The Hummingbird Bakery was founded in 2004 and subsequently expanded to have a further five stores throughout London. My adoration for The Great British Bake Off has inspired me to venture away from my standard chunk cookie and chocolate cake into more dangerous and indulgent territory. May I just say that I am truly gutted that Martha left last week, I was totally routing for her! The Hummingbird Bakery specializes in American-style baked treats and desserts and the cookbook completely reflects that, from gooey frosted brownies to peanut butter cookies, this cookbook has it all! I shall be delving into my new obsession this weekend to gladly bring the authentic taste of American home baking to London Derbyshire! If you’re looking for some inspiration for some indulgent comfort food as winter creeps up on us, please look no further, this photo filled wonder is a …
