One decision to see each other more and take advantage of London’s amazing culinary offerings.
The result? #eattheworld
#eattheworld part one went a bit like this:
The chooser: Aidan, who blogs about wine at aidanhasawine.wordpress.com
The country: Peru
The restaurant: Tierra Peru on Essex Road on Islington
The drinks: Cusquena beer, Pisco Sours, Picasso wine, shots of coco leaf liquor
The food: skewered ox heart, deep fried pastry fingers, raw fish marinated in green lime juice, creamy seafood stew, quinoa risotto, sweet potato, marinated pork and chicken
The verdict: delish
The one thing you should know: Peruvians cook with massive corn kernels
Next month’s chooser? Jonny, my boyf

If you fancy some charity-based crafting this weekend, you could 1. Knit a hat for Mungos (who help people without homes). 2.

God bless Miss Cakehead. The world is a better place because of her and her cake, especially these Leveson enquiry-themed ones.
Mencap’s newly launched website, Make With Me, is rather nice. Barley Massey of Fabrications (an awesome crafter indeed) let me know about the site because she’s contributed a recipe, called United Gingerbread People Bunting, which is available as a free download.
