Dinner at Hakkasan, Mayfair

You know a restaurant is good when you're still raving about one of their dishes over a year since you last visited (Chilean sea bass...).  So when an invite popped up in my work inbox and I saw the magical word "Hakkasan",  I instantly opened the attached menu, scanned down the set meals and hurrah!  Sea bass!  Invitation accepted!

Hakkasan was founded in London in London in 2001 and there are now 13 locations dotted around the globe (maybe next time we can go to the one in Vegas?!).  I visited the Mayfair restaurant which was opened in 2010 and has been awarded a Michelin star every year since 2012.

What I Got Up To: February 2017

The sun has got his hat on, the daffs are in full bloom and the shops are full of Mini Eggs - spring is here!

February wasn't too busy a month for me (I'm still claiming to be recovering from the busy nightmare at work that was Christmas) but managed to fit in a few fun things - Thai food with my pal Loulou, a candy making masterclass and taking part in Aunt Peaches' final Valentine Swap (it was so lovely to get a little crafty and to receive snail mail!).

How was your February?

Candy Making at Spun Candy

Mr Jones is a most excellent present buyer so when I opened an envelope on my birthday, a candy making class at Spun Candy, I was over the moon!  I'm pretty good a cooking, I'm not so bad at baking but making candy?!  One of the options was making candy flowers which to me was a no brainer (pretty AND edible!)!  So fast forward 9 months to when I had some time booked off work, I found myself walking from Aldgate East station and into the sweetest smelling place I've ever been to!  Is this what Willy Wonka's factory smelt like?!

Spun Candy launched in 2013 and not only offer classes such as the flower making one I booked but also candy face making, a confectionery masterclass, parties AND they make bespoke sweeties for companies (the guy who taught me had been making chicken, curry and onion bhaji ones for a customer earlier in the day) AND they have a normal shop that you can buy their sweets from.
