@millykr I am so excited to finally be able to tell you about a project I am working on this month with the iconic French brand @lalique. I have always admired Lalique and remember seeing valuable crystal vases in my grandfathers Art Deco antique shop when I was a child, so it is wonderful to be getting to know the brand as an adult. Next week I will be visiting their stunning hotel and Michelin starred restaurant at @villarenelalique in Alsace, but in the meantime here’s a photo of one of my favourite of their iconic vases. #lalique ad 🏺🍃✨

@millykr I’ve been in Cornwall for the last few days researching for the third edition of our @weekendjournals Cornwall guidebook. So lovely to catch up with friends old and new and discover some brilliant newbies, like the @yallahcoffee hatch in St. Ives. Can’t wait to introduce you all to the new edition in a few months time.☕️✨🌊

@millykr If you are looking for a truly special meal in London, @maos.bluemountainschool by @nunoviajante is for you... this 16-seat eatery is hidden away in the luxurious and unique Blue Mountain School in a transformed townhouse on Redchurch Street. @clerkenwellboyec1 and I were treated to a memorable multi-course dinner by chef @edoardopellicano full of sublime produce, innovative technique and serious flavour last week. See my highlights for pictures of the meal, favourites included green almonds with  tonburi, “onions old and new”, aged wagyu steak, and the epic black truffle dessert with celeriac and rice koji. Mãos won’t be London’s best kept secret for long so I’d book now while you still just can!🍴🍃🍷✨

@millykr Celebrating National Afternoon Tea week (12-18 August) with the most decadent tea @thewolseley in St James. Best of British highlights included Roast Beef & Horseradish sandwiches, the freshest just-baked scones (with jam then cream!) and a beautiful selection of classic cakes. The Wolseley concentrate on quality and service, and it was truly one of the best teas I have experienced in London (and I have tried a lot!) Check out the venues across St James’s and Piccadilly next week for a range of one-of-a-kind experiences celebrating this wonderfully British tradition! ad| 🥂🧁🇬🇧✨

@millykr Sampling the entire menu @tou_london, the newly opened @tata_eatery restaurant @arcadelondon in Tottenham Court Road.

While you are at Arcade check out the other food outlets, including my favourites @pophamsbakery, @linastores & @oklava_ldn.✨🥢💯🔥

@millykr Saint-Michel d'Aiguilhe (St. Michael of the Needle) is a magical chapel near Le Puy-en-Velay, France. The chapel is reached by 268 steps carved into the rock. It was built in 969 on a volcanic plug 85 metres high and towers majestically above the charming town of Le Puy. Thank you @merchantgourmet For introducing me to this lovely part of France.✨🏰

@millykr A snapshot from Le Puy-en-Velay... the magical town where Puy lentils are harvested. I’ve just returned from a few days in this special part of central France with @merchantgourmet, who are the sole providers of Puy lentils to all UK shops and restaurants. A staple of the French diet it was fascinating to learn about the life of a Puy lentil, what makes it special and different to other pulses. I’ll be writing up a blog post soon with all details, in the meantime I’d love to hear how you eat your lentils? #recipuy #versatilipuy {ad} 🍃✨🇫🇷
