Lemon Chicken Sandwiches

sandwich heavenWe LOVE these sandwiches so much that they need a shout-out. Another fantastic recipe from Aussie food stylist, author and magazine editor Donna Hay (we just renewed our magazine subscription). These little beauties guarantee no leftovers at any party, in fact take the recipe with you as you will be asked to share, we guarantee it!

INGREDIENTS

  • 12 slices white bread
  • Butter for spreading
  • 2 cups (320g) chopped cooked chicken
  • ¾ cup (225g) whole-egg mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chopped basil leaves
  • 2 tbsp shredded mint leaves
  • Salt and pepper
  • Extra mayonnaise and finely chopped chives

Place the chicken, mayonnaise, lemon juice, basil, mint, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix to combine. Spread one side of each bread slice with butter. Divide chicken mixture between half the bread slices and top with remaining bread. Cut sandwiches into small triangles and brush one side with the extra mayonnaise. Press the mayonnaise into the chives to serve. Makes 24.

Travel Bag Fetish

We, well I, it’s all the same, have as bag fetish…a travel bag fetish in fact. There is something about a good looking travel bag that just stops me in my tracks, so you can imagine how much I was holding my breath when I came across the new Louis Vuitton Weekender!

Berners Tavern Bliss

We have realised we’ve been to Berners Tavern twice now and have not said a word about it – shame on us. It’s absolutely brilliant!

Berners Tavern is the restaurant in The London Edition that opened in 2013, the first in a new luxury range of hotels from the Marriott Group, breathing new life into the former ‘Berners Hotel’. The property was originally built as a group of townhouses in 1835 and became a hotel in 1908 – famous for its grade II listed richly decorated ceilings in its marble-clad lobby and restaurant, which have been lovingly restored by its new owners. The restaurant that is Berners Tavern features walled framed pictures, a floor to ceiling bar, stunning overhead antique lighting with the marble ceiling dimly lit to create a uber luxurious dining atmosphere. “We needed to draw the eye down, we couldn’t have everyone sitting looking up at the ceiling” we were told by management.

With just 5 mins prep and 15 mins cooking time, this tasty dish will have you on the sofa in no time, after all, who wants to spend time in the kitchen after your first day in the office of a new week?

Karpo Restaurant, NW1

With all the new restaurants popping up around Kings Cross since the redevelopment, Elldrew had previously had a lovely meal at Camino Spanish restaurant, so we were looking for somewhere to dine in the area again when we came across Karpo. Actually located on Euston Road opposite the station, away from all the new restaurants, we’re not sure how old the restaurant is, but reading great reviews we simply had to try it.

Sausage & Bean Cassoulet

Without sounding like a line from an episode of Nigella Bites, there’s nothing better than getting cozy on the sofa, on a wintery evening, with a bowl of hearty one-pot stew, a chunk of crusty rye bread and an optional glass of full-bodied red. Remote control in reaching distance. Cue chill-out time.

Secret Cinema Mayhem

secret_cinemaLast weekend Planet Elldrew headed down to deepest darkest Croydon (we’re North London boys) for our first experience of Secret Cinema, and what an experience it was…we’re still processing a very surreal night, still rather unsure what it was all about, except to say that we loved it!

Europe’s Vision

No Elldrew have not turned political editors, that’s not our style, but with the turmoil of the Euro continuing to plague the financial world there’s no better way, if only for a night, to celebrate all things Europe then with a song. Yes we’re talking about the Eurovision Song Contest.
