When he's not filling Hélène Darroze's kitchen with the delicacy, he's diving for scallops for Her Majesty the Queen. He's been at it since he was fourteen and apparently he's one of the best. When the scallop course arrived, I had a new found respect for what I was about to bite into. Of...

Yauatcha is by no means a London cheap eat, but it has always been worth every penny I've had to spend there and never have I left disappointed by what was on offer. When it comes to Dim Sum, Yauatacha has always been "the place". At the moment, however, "the place", geographically...

My New Year's resolution, to eat a strict diet, was dead and gone - buried beneath a pile of culinary delights, supplied by The Swan. If only I was eating in a culture where one is allowed to pick up their plate and lick it clean (can someone please let me know where that is permitted?), I...
