We realise that you were probably still considering ‘English Breakfast’ to be the reason behind our permanent membership of the United Nations security council.  A proud moment, a world standard.. our birthright.  But we’re going to interrupt that for breaking news from inner London. Terrible news.

There’s a new breakfast in town.. and its Australian!!!

So, daytrip to Brighton?   Kind of a summer thing..  or maybe that’s just what the locals WANT you to think..  And don’t assume for a minute that London has got the the burgeoning food trend scene all to itself. You might not see these guys in a guidebook just yet, but say hello to some of the best eating outside the capital..

ITS BARBECUE FEBRUARY !news_rss/Entries/2014/9/8_HAM_%26_CHEESE.html

“Is barbecue getting too trendy for its own good?” gasped the US Zagat site a few months back.. hipsters were to blame, of course.  This side of the pond, shoulder barge the kitchen door in any number of Michelin starred dens around the country you’ll find big green eggs plying their trade, hushed discussions about wood chips.  And with scores of new openings this month it’s clear that

change is afoot in the barbecue space.
