This Week We Have Been . . .
…eating out at Mishkin’s – from London restaurant revolutionaries, Russell Norman and Richard Beatty – the duo behind mouthwatering, small plates dining destinations – Polpo, Polpetto, Spuntino and Da Polpo – also came Mishkin’s, their take on the Jewish American ‘New York’ Deli. We devoured gin cured salmon, a pickled apple and beetroot & roast beetroot, lentil and feta salad, schamaltzed radishes followed by Macaroni Cheese and Fishcakes. Nom Nom!
…listening to the oh-so-very dulcet tones of Natalie Duncan at the Soho House Sessions. Natalie has big voiced soul a-plenty, and can write a tasty tune on the piano – check out her top release here:
…catching the Foreign Beggars reunion and 10 year anniversary of Asylum Speakers, featuring all the artists from the record and a full live band. Foreign Beggars as expected smashed it, with the highlight of the night being the introduction of Skinny Man and arguably the best song on the album ‘Hold On’ being dropped. Brap! (I’ll get my coat)
…catching the last weekend of the Ansel Adams exhibition at the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich. Adams was an American photographer renowned for taking black and white shots of the American West. His creativity in utilising camera settings and printing techniques was ahead of its time and resulted in stunning shots, particularly in the realm of depth of field (he set up the ‘Group F/64’ –“The idea behind Group f/64 was to make pictures the way the camera sees, not the way the human eye does.”)
…Having Harry Potter fun at the Warner Bros Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter. With Wand Week kicking off this Saturday we have been down at the tour with Paul Harris, choreographer from the films, learning the art of Wand Combat while sipping on a cold Butterbeer. It’s trickier than you think – we still haven’t mastered the art of the wrist flick here at the Fever Offices!
