Gordon Ramsay Street Pizza does bottomless pizza

Pizza is always a great go to meal be it for lunch or dinner as it’s quick to cook and filling. Choosing a pizza can be tricky as there are a vast range of flavours out there plus sometimes eating a large pizza after a few slices can become a bit boring. Gordon Ramsay’s Street Pizza though has the perfect solution as they sell bottomless pizza, so you can enjoy a variety of flavours and eat as little or as much as you like for just one payment.

Pizza has been around since the 10th century. It is a popular savoury Italian dish which is made from a dough which is flattened into a round shape usually, and topped with tomatoes, cheese, and a variety of other ingredients, such as anchovies, mushrooms, olives, pineapple, meat, etc., which is then baked at a high temperature, traditionally in a wood-fired oven.

I was invited on a PR basis to dine at Gordon Ramsay’s chain Street Pizza at their newest establishment in Southwark back in October 2020. I visited December but literally the next day it was closed due to new lockdown from the government as Covid had risen in London. Now restrictions are lifted (17 May) and Street Pizza has now reopened it’s doors to hungry pizza lovers.

Popcorn Shed popping with flavour, crunch, sweetness and sourness

We all love a sweet or sour snack to munch on and Popcorn Shed popcorn is the answer as they sell a wide variety of popcorn from Salted Caramel to Blue Cheese popcorn. Popcorn Shed popcorn comes in handy boxes shaped like a shed with a viewing window displaying their yummy popcorn. Popcorn is widely consumed worldwide which is generally eaten within theatres, cinemas and at home.

Popcorn dates back as early as 4700 BC as evidence of corn which was popped was discovered within Peru by archaeologists. From the 19th century, popcorn which could be popped up at home was sold across the USA under the name Pearls of Nonpareil it was not till 1848 that the actual term popcorn came about. All that was required to achieve that perfect fresh tasting popcorn at home was a stove, pan with lid, oil or butter and the kernels. Popcorn was in fact a widely consumed breakfast cereal by the Americans which they added to milk and sweeteners. Since the 1800s popcorn has evolved and can be cooked in a variety of ways from within an air popped popcorn machine to microwaving within a microwavable bag.

What is popcorn though you might ask? Well popcorn is a corn kernel which when heated within oil expands and puffs up. Each kernel of popcorn contains a certain amount of moisture and oil. The outer hull of the popcorn kernel is strong and impervious to moisture and the starch inside consists almost entirely of a hard type. As the oil and water within the kernel are heated, they turn the moisture in the kernel into pressurized steam. Under these conditions, the starch inside the kernel gelatinizes, softens and becomes pliable. The internal pressure of the entrapped steam continues to increase until the breaking point of the hull is reached. The hull there upon ruptures rapidly and explodes, causing a sudden drop in pressure inside the kernel and a corresponding rapid expansion of the steam, which expands the starch and proteins of the endosperm into airy foam. As the foam rapidly cools, the starch and protein polymers set into the familiar crispy puff. When the popcorn has finished popping, sometimes un-popped kernels remain. Known in the popcorn industry as old maids, these kernels fail to pop because they do not have enough moisture to create enough steam for an explosion.

I was gifted a variety pack courtesy of Enjoy Stevie who sell a range of products from a vast number of businesses at reduced prices. With Enjoy Stevie you can SAVE 15% off Popcorn Shed.
