rooftop views

Nothing wrong with dreaming away with some good indian summer memories. One of my favourite ones lately is the first weekends of September. We went to the Dalston Roof Park , just around the corner of our new place, and enjoyed an amazing Southern American syle lazy lunch, organised by The Art of Dining, a young company that combines food, set design and art (anybody who knows me even a little bit would know I am a sucker for a combination like that!)

It definitely felt like the laziest lunch in London town that Sunday, with five  courses, picnic baskets filled with treasures, old romantic novels and slightly Southern American style music in the background. This all combined with cocktails, East-London views and a good, after summer sun made it an incredible, chilled day. Exactly how a Sunday should be.

 

On the menu:

Baked beans slow cooked bean and molasses soup served in an American biscuit bowl

Corn on the cob served Mexican style, with sour cream, parmesan, cumin, chilli and lime- Wilted bacon and shrimphot saladRibs’n’slaw, lamb ribs with Moroccan style slaw and pickles

Sweet potato ice cream with a ginger bread flake

(Definitely check out their website for some more pop-up culinair fests to come: www.theartofdining.co.uk)

Went for a coffee at Beyond Retro on the way.

After the lazy lunch, we decided to do some low effort activities as we where too full to move. We went to check out some galleries at the Hackney Wicked Festival and just enjoyed coffee, drinks and art.

Let’s all hope for more sunny weekends to come, or just dream away with the ones we had.

Mysteries

I have to admit, while I used to post very frequent, the previous months of my live have been a mystery for my blog followers. It might seem that I have been lazy, and yes, as a personal blogger, that might be a correct presumption. But I haven’t been lazy in general, believe me. From trips all over Europe, to meeting the Kills,  freelancing as reporter at London Fashion Week, hot festivals, cold showers, magazine parties, big sample sales, and enjoying the London (Indian) Summer in general, I have been busy.

The next weeks I will update you and reveal some of these mysteries again. Not all verry accurate or big, but notthing wrong with re-living some good old memories.

 

But for now, I will leave you with one other mystery that will give you sweet dreams until mine will be revealed…
