Christmas is coming


I'm not that keen on Christmas. However, I love visiting Father Christmas and over the next couple of weeks I'm going to be doing my research on the best Father Christmas in inner and outer London. Last year Harrods and Selfridges were neck and neck. This year, who knows will it be Fortnum's, Kew Gardens, The Wetland Centre in Barnes. The whole experience is generally a nod from these havens of taste that their younger customers' deserve a great experience not based on cost. Who has gone the extra mile? Will be interesting to see. And, who stocks the best decorations.

Best and Beyond Philosophy and Konditor and Cook




Best and Beyond seeks the best in design and content whatever and wherever it may be. Its for people who love high benchmarks from the best cakes, coffee, galleries, farms, people. Its not about expensive things its about my love of the very best wherever it may be. So, setting the benchmark for consistently wonderful, inspiring cakes is Konditor and Cook - www.konditorandcook.com . A creative wonderland concentrating on making us smile and sidestepping the much over-rated Fairy Cakes to Cakes on an entirely different level. This is a pic of Spring's Magic Cakes. If you pop in soon you can see the wonderful Mica tribute range to publicise his new album. I love the Banana and Walnut Cake however there are many more I'd like to and will try over the coming months.
