Tommy Tucker – Where GASTRO Meets PUB

I’ve been planning to try out this pub with a catchy name Tommy Tucker in Fulham, SW London for a while. While there is certainly no lack of gastropubs in Fulham I was still on the search for the one that makes me go “wow”. There is of course the Michelin starred Harwood Arms which is very good, but I really wanted to find something with a more traditional, pubby atmosphere.

Supertuscans – the superheros from Bolgheri

“…if Ravel’s “Bolero” was a wine, it would probably be the 2007 Ornellaia”

From the day the London based wine merchant Armit Wines and the world famous Tenuta dell’Ornellaia had announced a competition earlier this year to win a trip to Tuscany to visit the Ornellaia estate, I was on a mission. The challenge was to take a creative photo of one’s enjoying Le Volte (the entry level wine of Ornellaia) and to share it on social media with the hashtag #LoveLeVolte.

I was in the mood for a Michelin starred meal yet wanted an informal relaxed atmosphere. Lima Fitzrovia has been on my “to go” list for ages and as soon as I knew they are offering the “Sunday Long Lunch” set menu at a fixed price, I knew I needed to look no further.

A little tribute to my former homeland

There is hardly anything more exciting for a wine-geek than meeting the winemaker in person. And I mean no representative of a marketing team but the guy who really is responsible for what’s in your glass. The one with his hands on the vines in the vineyard, the artist in the winery and the mastermind behind all the processes before, in between and after production which influence the quality and character and create the soul of the wine.
