#365DaysofLondonBaby- Day 25- a weekend stroll through Shoreditch / Hackney

The sun has finally decided to make an appearance this weekend and I used the opportunity to┬áspend a lazy Saturday in Shoreditch / Hackney with some friends. Even though my picture-taking activity was on the low side, it was so much fun that I thought I share our route with you nevertheless. So here it comes…

Your lazy weekend tour through Shoreditch / Hackney

Note: for the “market” part of the stroll, the market will depend on whether you go on Saturday (then you’ll experience Broadway market, left picture) or Sunday (Columbia Road Flower market, right picture). Both streets are also great without the market, as there are nice shops and good food opportunities anyway!

The Mae Deli by Deliciously Ella is open – here is a sneak peek

Good Sunday evening! Its been a long time since a regular post (apart from our #365DaysofLondonBaby) but I promise it will be worth it ­čÖé

The Mae Deli by Deliciously Ella has┬ásecretly opened their doors in Marleybone and London Baby was lucky to visit today, try the delicious food and take a few pictures of the place. I have to warn you, you’ll find this post slightly biased, but I have been a fan of Deliciously Ella for long. The blog has animated me to get in the kitchen a few times more than I used to and the food is so delicious. So when I heard about the Mae Deli opening in November, I was curious and excited and after a delivery order during their pilot in November, I was sold. ┬áSo, you have been warned – happy reading!

#365DaysofLondonBaby-Day 15 – Georgian Dining Academy

After a small break in the 365 days, I would like to continue this journey of blogging, but more importantly London and its adventure with a very special event – a Georgian Dining Academy on this December 10th . During a recent event with the fantastic guides of Footprints of London, I met the lovely Miss B┬á– she is a very knowledgeable Tour Guide (qualified as a City guide in 2012), runs a wonderful blog, is an expert of Architecture (stay tuned for a potential guest blog from her), history, ceremonies in the city and about any- and everything. She bustles with energy and finds many ways to share all of this passion and knowledge of London. It was a great honour and joy to meet her.

FullSizeRenderOne of the exciting things she organises is a unique Dining Experience, called “Georgian Dining Academy”.┬áThe purpose of the Academy is to create a Georgian, performance style, dining experience in the heart of the City. With the encouragement of Miss Kitty Pridden (also a City Guide of 2012) this novel idea was put into action in 2014. It has proved a successful event which takes place quarterly. In true hipster style, I wrongly classified it as a “Pop-Up” dining event but want to correct that it is an established series of events and its not popping up and leaving but here to stay :). But I let Miss B explain in her own words. Continue reading

Ze Wurst in Town …

Steins Wurstplatte

Welcome back to That’s London Baby! Sorry for not posting so long! London baby has been very busy exploring the Capital Ring in the weekends and was suffering from a bit of writer’s block as well- after all, while there are countless sections of the Capital Ring to write up, I wanted to offer a bit more variety…so that’s why today, instead of writing about the best that London has to offer, I want to write about the Wurst…(it’s old, ok. German humour, please keep on reading anyway :))
