Edd’s Macaron Class
As i’ve mentioned before my brother Edd recently won the BBC’s Great British Bake Off. While he was on the show one of his signatures was the Macaron, which are becoming more and more popular thanks to the likes of Pierre Herme and Lauduree (both now with shops in the UK).
Well earlier this week Edd got together with a bunch of London food bloggers to run a macaron class, teaching them all the techniques to make perfect salted caramel macarons. It was a really great night, very graciously hosted by @londonfoodfinds from Twitter, with more great food from Catalan Cooking and the London Foodie.
Well the night went so well that Edd is planning to start offering these classes on a proper basis starting in the New Year. He’s currently sorting out the logistics, but in the meantime if you want to register an interest in maybe signing up for a future class then just drop him an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word Macaron in the subject line to be kept up to date with the details.

I’m no real foodie, but earlier this week I found myself with a group of London food bloggers at the Miele showroom for the Green and Blacks 15:15 challenge. You might have seen some press recently about the fact that the well known (and well loved) chocolate company is currently hiring a new Taste Assistant and that the applicants who want the job will have to go through a unique interview process. Well tonight’s event was supposed to give people an idea of what the process will be like. And for anyone thinking of applying…it’s not as easy as it might sound!

Eine on Ebor Street
So I promised a few more photos of the Eine street art on Ebor Street that I posted yesterday and here they are. I’ve also added a couple of other bits of art that are nearby (all near the top of Brick Lane).
You can see more of my London street art shots over on my flickr page
