What a wonderful surprise my dear friend Mario called and said he had just arrived in London and would i like to meet him at Claridges for Tea. I decided i would start the diet tomorrow.
Earl Grey Tea and Scones, Clotted Cream and Jam. I also am well aware it is the second one in a week but i feel it is important for you to see different variations of the Great English Cream Tea.

Fouberts of Chiswick have been around for 50 years. I took my 8 year old friend there today he loved it and opted for the mint chocolate chip. The ice cream is hand made and family run. There is always a line and the parking is a nightmare but apart from that well worth the visit. Just one more thing was a little bit scared of the bright blue option?
Fouberts Ice Cream Parlour. 2 Turnham Green Terrace,Chiswick W4.
What is it about this shop?? Apart from the stupendous packaging, visually outstanding cakes and pastries the decor makes me feel like i am in a stage production of Charlie and the Chocolate factory. It is pure fantasy as nothing can be that perfect....or can it???
Here we have a bowl of sumptuous chorizo cabbage and potato soup eaten at approximately 11pm at Moro London.
I often make this delectable dish so here is my version.
Slice the chorizo, 1 onion and 2 cloves of garlic soften in some olive oil.
Peel and cube 3 large potatoes. Add the potatoes and vegetable stock. Once the potatoes are cooked lightly smash and add green spring cabbage finely sliced. Serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of smoked paprika.
