The Elegant Art Of Stuffing Your Face
Here's a taste of what's on offer if you pledge for the Tea with Me level.
We will be meeting at my favourite tea shop, Lowry & Baker, on Portobello Road.
Lowry & Baker is run by Katy and Maya (I'm not sure which one is Lowry and which one is Baker) who, beneath their hipster facades, are a pair of genuine born-again grannies. Using seasonal ingredients they cook nearly everything from scratch: piquant chutneys; yummy soups; inventive salads; died-and-gone-to-heaven cakes; melt-in-the-mouth quiches and the best poached eggs in the west. They also have a great eye for eclectic crockery. Fresh flowers adorn the eccentric collection of wooden tables and the whole place is as cosy and homely as a hand-knitted cardie.
I'm looking forward to hearing your views about issues raised in the book, from sex and love addiction to natural beauty products to cancer and diet to wigs and fashion.
But the main event will be tea. Not just a cuppa and a biscuit. No! You will be indulged with Lowry & Baker's finest array of scones, cakes, sandwiches and beverages until you groan and beg for a lettuce leaf.
Lowry & Baker is tiny so places are limited.
Tempted? Sign up for the level!
