Winter Beetroot Recipes to fight off the January Blues!

I’m slightly beetroot obsessed so have put together some of my favourite winter beetroot recipes for fellow lovers of this jewel coloured veg! After over-stocking on beetroot supplies I have to get creative with some experimental winter beetroot recipes (including beetroot brownies!) Winter brings us the opportunity to spend more time at home doing the things we love - for me that is experimenting in the kitchen and making something delicious (and usually a big mess!) with seasonal, locally-grown ingredients.

Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason - The Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon

Afternoon Tea at the Diamond Jubilee Tea Salon in Fortnum and Masons is something everyone needs to experience when they visit London. An incredible range of teas, sweet and savoury delicacies piled high on tiered cake stands and a relaxed atmosphere makes it an oasis above Picadilly. It is the perfect place to celebrate and indulge with the girls for any occassion!

Chiltern Firehouse - Marylebone, London

I am always on the hunt for the best brunch spot in London. The first gal-pal brunch of the year calls for a little bit of extravagance. With Dry-January and Veganuary well behind us (let’s be honest… they were never in the way - I didn’t last a day!) and January’s pay burning a hole in my pocket, I booked us in for what may be the ultimate spot for brunch indulgence in London, Chiltern Firehouse.

Palomar - Soho, London

Soho is arguably the best place to eat in London. It is so densely populated with hot new openings and superstar chefs, you’re seeing so many Michelin stars you may feel you’ve been knocked unconscious. However, even here there are standouts and Palomar is one of them, here I had perhaps the most unique and exciting dining experiences I have ever had. Mediterranean cuisine is not usually my first choice, however, Palomar is much more than that. Their menu, described as ‘modern Jerusalem fare’ is a multi-cultural blend of dishes with North African, Spanish and eastern Mediterranean accents.
