Launching back in March 2016, Padella Pasta has had a very successful 5 months of business. The second restaurant from the team behind lavish Italian eatery Trullo, Highbury. Padella Pasta is definitely the more accessible of the two. The concept  at Padella is simple; freshly prepared hand rolled pasta, served with delicious simple sauces, alongside a good bottle of wine.

The daily queues of 30 strong, hungry, Londoners are a testament to its success. The non-booking policy also helps to add to the hype.

The Georgia O’Keefe exhibition, at London’s Tate Modern has been on my hit list for a while since. Whilst very much a fan of her watercolour flowers, I hadn’t had an opportunity to immerse myself in much of the work throughout her seven decade long career.

That feeling you get when you finally pay a long awaited visit to a restaurant, and it more than lives up to expectations, is one that is worth savouring. Sager + Wilde has been on my hit list for a while. A combination of moving back to North London, and my ever growing list of restaurants has somehow resulted in me missing out on the delectable offerings of either of its two East London establishments, to date. I even ducked out of their Taco and Mezcal party despite writing a post on it back in July. Curse you Summer Detox!

I hadn’t heard much about Icelandic performance artist Ragnar Kjartansson prior to a recent visit at the Barbican last month, for an Icelandic music night called, ‘An evening with the Bel-Air Glamour Records Gang’. This unique form of performance art completely blew me away. The whole event was both beautiful, poignant, and funny throughout.

The food industry is full of amazing talent. You only have to look at the top 5 list of The World’s 50 Best Restaurant awards to see how far the talent spreads; from Italy, to Peru. Food doesn’t have to conform to a fixed set of rules anymore. Just take classical French cuisine which only features twice in the top twenty list. Now it’s about self expression, and real cultural representation which I love.
