Talking of ace people, I also interviewed 2 of @thegroundnut trio to talk about their west African cookery book. Here…

How to taste and buy real cider to pair with food in London — There is a major cider brand that I've always felt is a watered down version of the real thing. And from what little I understand about cider, I know I'm more of a real cider kind of girl - that is, when I'm not seeing stars after a pint of lethal Old Rosie, which happened in Falmouth a few years ago.

Cider? Tick. Food? Tick. Together? Yeah, why not?! I talked to Dan Heath @theciderbox about pairing them up

My Foodie London: Sarit Packer of Honey & Co — Sarit Packer is the co-founder of the restaurant Honey & Co, which she runs with her husband Itamar Srulovich; they call it their "labour of love and an extension of our home."

Turns out I have ace cheffy neighbours -my Q&A w/ Sarit Packer from @honeyandco on local shopping for #MyFoodieLondon…

The Rib Man: Brick Lane's Mark Gevaux on why London’s barbecue scene is smoking hot right now — London's barbecue scene is smoking hot at the moment. There is a band of chefs grilling things in small kitchens at new restaurants including Kitty Fisher's, Smoking Goat, Berber & Q and Smokehouse Chiswick, and there are those who lay on barbecue feasts outside, from food stands such as Smokestak and Miss Ps.

Mastering the swirl-and-spit — During a six-week stint in our Pickering Cellar, food writer Victoria Stewart gets to grips with the major grape varieties and graduates from wine novice to confident swirl-sniff-spitter on our Introductory Wine course. Until recently I dreaded wine lists.

It's all about the chew... I recently did an 'introduction to wine' course and this is what happened:… @berrybrosrudd

How to taste and buy Japanese whisky in London — I grew up hating whisky, never understanding why my Scottish father would waste his time drinking such an unpleasant thing. But it took trying sweet bourbon to break my aversion, and from there I cracked into the rest of the family and started seeing what all the fuss was about.

Made in London: House of Sverre's luxury smoked salmon — Gunnar Lieungh is the founder of House of Sverre, a luxury smoked salmon business that he started from a shed near Finsbury Park in October 2013 before upgrading to a bigger smokery.

Spent a few hrs getting a tour of Finsbury Park's salmon smokery @HouseofSverre & talking to Gunnar for #MadeInLondon

On the table: Medlar — Food writer Victoria Stewart continues her exploration of London's culinary scene with an impeccable lunch at the elegant Medlar, a pristine spot on the King's Road that punches above its Chelsea peers. What do two suited young men, a fabulous pensioner in a multi-coloured spotty dress coat and London's wine crowd all have in common?

If I lived nearby I'd have the set lunch menu at Medlar regularly.. I've written it up for the @berrybrosrudd blog…

Posh toast: Victoria Stewart whips up a toast buffet with the contents of her fridge — Even in its most simple form, toast can be relied upon to fill up, comfort, and excite us. Think of those hurried mornings enhanced with a simple piece of toasted bread covered in jam, honey or peanut butter, or those moments when the shops are closed but there were still a few slices of bread in the freezer, forming the basis of a quick Sunday night supper.

Very sad to hear of the death of Cilla Black - such a ballsy woman. And Blind Date was one of the best shows on TV when I was growing up.
