macaroons KitchenAid

“On arrival, I was given the opportunity to try various macarons which I happily tucked into. Some of these were the vegan variety which were surprising delicious! Using fresh fruits and avocados, they tasted fresh and sweet. I was told that they are generally sweeter as more sugar is needed to keep them together.”

Steve

Las Banderas paella

“We had two different types of paellas. Mine was Paella de Marisco which contained seafood of peeled prawns, tiger prawns and squid rings. Jason’s paella was called the Paella Supreme which had mixed seafood, chicken, Chorizo, prawns and squid.”

BIG The Musical

Did you love the classic 80’s movie BIG? Yes then you will love the musical which is being played at present on the stage of Dominion Theatre but be quick as it is only there for eight weeks.

BIG is about a boy who wished to be big which comes true. However the question is does he want to return to being a kid?

What would you wish for if you had a magical wish which could come true?

BIG The Musical stage set at Dominion Theatre

“For me the scenes that took my heart was the beautiful moments within adult Josh department when he bought back Susan. I loved the kiddie quirkiness between adult Josh (Jay McGuiness) and Susan (Kimberley Walsh) and the night time city view with stars dawning Dominion Theatre with a shooting star ending the scene perfectly making me having my own wish. Who needs Zoltar.”

Joanne founder of Love Pop Ups London

I went along and enjoyed the musical BIG taking my mind back to fun childhood memories. I wish I could be a kid again. Click here to read my full write up.

Which past contestant from Great British Bake Off would you love to learn baking skills from?

Me, James Hillery and Katie

“Bake With A Legend was the perfect cookery class. I love that fact that you can cook along with those that have appeared on The Great British Bake Off as it is a real treat in meeting one of these inspirational contestants who are not famous (well maybe not yet) and have so many great stories to tell about their time on the show as well as about their own personal life.”

“The Peanut Nougat Sate, Smoked Chocolate Ganache, Charcoal Ice Cream was a real treat. The nougat was sticky and sweet tasting very similar to a melted marshmallow but with a nutty element. The chocolate ganache and ice cream had a smokiness about it.”

Eleven98 will inspire you to grow your own vegetables at home. If you did what vegetables would you grow?

“The evening was a true showcase of local ingredients grown in Hackney. Each and every course created by Chef Aidan Brooks was a celebration of the incredible food grown and produced in the London Borough of Hackney as well as the great British Game Season.”

Creative Studio

Creative Studio provides classes to those who want to learn all about sculpture painting. Sculptural painting is an artistic direction that combines elements of creating sculpture in the part of working material – decorative plaster, and elements of painting in part of the technique of work with a palette knife, close to receiving impasto, implying the creation of three-dimensional textures and elements by applying material to the surface according to the principle one stroke – one element.

Love craft and art give it a go.

“Nadia of Creative Studio provided a really fun class. It was interesting but even though Nadia was great at teaching I found sculpture painting was too hard for me to grasp. However saying this my artwork in the end it did not look that bad.”

Joanne of Love Pop Ups London

I and another community member of Love Pop ups London we sculpture painted with Creative Studios and went leaving with great works of art. Click here to read our write ups.
