This week we’ll be sharing some fashionable foodie advice ahead of London Fashion Week, which is fast approaching….

 

The Meringue Girls

 

The girls…Alex and Stacy are new on the scene and have created a new foodie trend. Cupcakes and macaroons are out while meringues are on their way in. Cooking from Alex’s basement in East London these ladies have discovered a dessert that shouldn’t be missed.

 

 

The flavours range from classics such as dark chocolate, raspberry and Madagascan vanilla pod to more exotic creations: pina colada, gin and tonic and lavender too!  We cannot resist their “meringue kisses” so, head down to Harvey Nicholls or Selfridges and give some of their quirky inventions a try!

Hutong

 

Boasting the best view in London, Hutong is situated on the 33rd floor of The Shard, serving contemporary Northern Chinese cuisine and traditional Peking dishes. Based on the hugely successful restaurant of the same name in Hong Kong, London is the first overseas location for Hutong. The culinary craft is superb with dishes varying from aromatic beef rib braised in lotus leaf to tiger prawns with Sichuan chilli sauce. Hutong is also perfect for a few drinks at the bar, admiring the view with one of their exotic Chinese ‘cocktail cures’ in hand. So if you are looking for a fashionable restaurant with fine dining, Hutong, is perfect for London fashionistas.
