London Shopping: La Fromagerie.

2015_04_29-JennisTable-Fromagerie-06

We often include La Fromagerie in the shopping section of our posts, but it’s high time that we put this store in the spotlight. On this occasion, we sent our photographer Helena to the Marylebone branch of La Fromagerie on a wet and dreary day, but as with most trips to this gem of a shop, she found herself buoyed by the cosy ambience, the bright skylights, and the multiple disco balls. (And also by the cheese. And coffee. And chocolate. Of which there was much.)

La Fromagerie is more than just a cheese shop: it is a fabulous treasure trove of high quality deli goods, as well as a greengrocer, a cafe and a restaurant. Inside you can find a well-curated selection of wine, tea, coffee, bread, pastry, jam and honey, charcuterie, chocolate, fruit and veg, and even gorgeous crockery. Of course, you will also find cheese. True to its name, La Fromagerie is exceptionally well stocked in the fromage department – there is even a temperature controlled walk-in cheese room complete with friendly and highly knowledgable staff. Have a look. Continue reading

Despite the wind and drizzle we had a lovely afternoon, and we were rewarded with some glorious sunshine too. As you’ll see below, the set-up is very simple, and you don’t need access to a sprawling wildreness like the heath. Instead, you can host your own Easter Egg Hunt in a local park, in your back garden, or even inside your home! All you need is a few lengths of contrasting, colourful ribbons to mark the path (one colour for each participant or team). Each colour has its own route, but all colours lead to the same final destination where a grand prize awaits…for whoever gets there first! You can add clues to help participants find the next ribbon marker. Around the halfway mark, we laid out some Chocolate treats and funny little characters for participants to meet along the way… Continue reading
