Conflict Cafe: how food is being used by a London pop-up to break down barriers — Everyone knows that one of the best ways to break down the barriers between a group of people who have never met each other before is to share food together. In my experience it provides a relaxed space for people to communicate experiences of their own food cultures, telling you so much about personal identity.

Had fascinating chat w/ conflict specialist Charlotte Onslow of #conflictcafe pop-up about using food to build peace

On the table: Social Wine & Tapas — As part of our ongoing series inspecting London's gastronomic offering, food writer Victoria Stewart escapes London's drizzly pavements and settles in at Jason Atherton's Social Wine & Tapas. ‪There is one thing better than walking off a rain-soaked street and into the hands of smiling restaurant staff, and that's doing the same thing in August, when one feels especially irked that it is raining at all.

A blagger's guide to buying sourdough bread in London — The word sourdough is something you hear mentioned in almost every new café or restaurant in London these days, and yet still many of us don't have a clue what it really is. Is all bread sourdough? Is all sourdough the real deal? And why should we care?

Who wants to know all about sourdough? here's my Q&A blagger's guide, with Fergus Jackson from @BrickHouseBread…

From The Hemsley sisters to the curry crew behind Gymkhana, meet London's new foodie clans — Never start a business with your family or with someone you love, in case you all fall out - or so the advice goes. Then again, have a think about some of London's best food businesses or restaurants and you'll soon realise that many are run by people who are related to or in relationships with each other.

Meet John Gregory-Smith, the new chef bringing flavours of the Black Sea to London — John Gregory-Smith was in love with Turkish food even before he met Murat, his Turkish partner, while standing at the bar of the the Rivington in Shoreditch. His affair with the country started out with holidays there with his father, and is now a long-term relationship - both with "M" and the cuisine.

Victoria Stewart's cookbook challenge: Gizzi’s Healthy Appetite: Food to nourish the body and feed the soul — There's been too much talk of 'clean eating' recently, says Gizzi Erskine, author of the new cookbook Gizzi's Healthy Appetite. So much so, says Erskine, that 'food has lost its soul' and she wants to start 'a new food revolution; one where people have a better understanding of nutrition but don't forget that eating should be enjoyable.'

Made in London: Scandinavian-inspired café Lundenwic — Two friends hatched Scotchtails in 2013; an in-the-know market stall that's turned the humble scotch egg into an artisan hit with food connoisseurs. Since then, the pair have seen their hand-made produce sold everywhere from Borough Market to Selfridges Food Hall. This month, they've launched Lundenwic - a quaint café in Covent Garden.

Made in London: Wildes Cheese in Tottenham — Philip Wilton is the founder of Wildes Cheese, a business he set up three and a half years ago. Born in Cyprus, he has lived in London since he was 16 years old, and has spent a large proportion of his life based in Tottenham with his partner and business partner Keith.

BBQ Champ's Adam Richman: 'I'm American. The last thing I want when I travel abroad is a hamburger!' — Adam Richman is the host of popular TV programmes Man v. Food, Epic Meal Time on The Food Network and now BBQ Champ, which airs on ITV tonight (July 31). He is also the author of America the Edible: A Hungry History from Sea to Dining Sea and has 674,000 followers on Twitter - and counting.

'The last thing I want when I travel abroad is a hamburger!' Before his new show BBQ Champ, I chatted to @AdamRichman…
