A London burlesque show of the highest standard…

Baroque: The Playboy Club, Mayfair I’d been to see Burlesque before; it was an utter disaster. My first -and until recently -my only experience of what is meant to be a seductive strip tease ended up being a clumsy display of cheap nipple tassles and ripped fishnets. It was like stumbling into the red light district […]

Authentic, original, flavoursome: The Jam Tree’s Pop-Up Jamaican Menu, Clapham

We Jammin’… Would I like to try The Jam Tree‘s Pop-Up Jamaican menu, I was asked.

In truth, I loved the idea of Jamaican […]
