With attention to detail, twists on traditional dishes, and ample serving sizes, everyone felt full and happy after our fabulously long lunch.

It was extra special to spend it with my Mum who has been visiting for the last few weeks.

I love these candid shots of the chefs at work!


chefThese are the dishes they rustled up, that we duly scoffed-I only ate the vegan dishes of course.

Bread soldiers, dips and vegetables

crudites dips

Spaghetti bolognese for the bambinos!

Penne arrabiata (vegan)-my favourite dish of fiery rich tomato and basil sauce.


Seabass for Mum and zucchini

zuchinni…The desserts were excellent too with…

Prosecco ice cream (vegan).

Blood orange and chocolate tart (also vegan) which is a zesty dark chocolate tart served with tangy raspberry sorbet.

Pistachio and olive oil cake-winner of a Great Taste award, this deliciously moist and nutty cake is served warm with vanilla gelato.

When it came to fashion, mum and I were twinning in our Mother’s Day outfits (my beautiful dress was a gift from Bombshell-a post on it with competition coming soon), our V necklaces by Nell and Digby (I bought mine and my Mum’s was a kind gift) and the meal, drinks and kind Mother’s Day gifts of Extra Virgin and Chilli infused Olive Oil by Ask, were complimentary. Boys shirts were gifted by Next.  I was styled by Lauren Jobling.
