Enoteca Pomaio

A couple of weeks ago I headed east to try Shoreditch's latest foodie addition, the casual Italian restaurant and organic wine bar Enoteca Pomaio on Brick Lane, run by two young brothers and winemakers from Tuscany.

Lima, Peru

Lima is full of contradictions: preserved colonial buildings sit next to glass skyscrapers and run-down high rises.  Busy roads, traffic jams and packed buses run alongside the wild Pacific coast, surfers, craggy cliffs, and joggers along the ocean promenade.  And, as it's the oft-cited gastronomic capital of the world, there are as many heavenly tasting menus at incredible restaurants (3 of the current World’s 50 Best Restaurants are in Lima) as there are cheap fast food joints and street food stalls.  We loved our time in the Peruvian capital with its buzzy, fast-paced vibe, rich South American culture mixing native Quechua, Hispanic and global influences, and inexpensive world-class cuisine - this is what we got up to in 36 hours...

Turandot

Last month I headed to my favourite building in London, the 18th century, Grade I-listed Royal Opera House to see Puccini's final opera: the dark, lively Turandot.  Romanian director Andrei Serban made his Royal Opera debut in 1984 with this production, and this is the 16th time it's returned to the Covent Garden stage.
