> The Beesley Buzz: Our Movember meal at One Canada Square Restaurant

Our Movember meal at One Canada Square Restaurant

Last November, we persuaded Daddy to enter Pan Macmillan's Mo Food Fight which raised awareness of this important cause whilst celebrating the launch of the Official Movember Cook Book "Cook Like a Man"

This ended up having the wonderful benefit of Daddy learning to cook something fabulous. He cooked the 'Wild Mushroom Cappuccino with Wild Mushroom Croustades' which is one of the recipes from the book (You can download the recipe here if you want to try it yourself). All his hard work paid off as he entered his funny 12 second video into the #MoFoodFight competition and it won us, not one, not two, not three but four - yes four - meals at top London restaurants. 

You can see his video here:
Last Friday, Granny very kindly took care of the kids whilst we headed up to London in the torrential rain and enjoyed an extremely wonderful meal at One Canada Square restaurant in Canary Wharf.

We had some amazing cocktails to start with
Then after an amouse-bouche, I had a starter of goat cheese and baby beetroot salad. The goat's cheese was made into a fabulous puree. We were also served some home-churned butter which inspired us to make our own at home afterwards! Daddy had a wild rabbit, mallard and blackberry starter. 
Followed by main course:
By this time we were feeling rather full but there's always room for dessert. Choosing dessert was tricky as there was a fantastic range including some tempting flavours of ice creams and sorbets. This is what we decided upon in the end.

A final treat of Petit-fours
And just enough time for a quick chat with Head Chef Jamie Dobbin (former Chef of The Club at The Ivy) and asking for an autograph to give to our own 7 year old Brilliant Chef.

After previously getting autographs from Rene Redzepi following our visit to Noma, Anjali Pathak when she came to our house, Manish Sharma who is the Patak's development chef when D went for a spice appreciation class, and Sylvana Franco when we went for our Waitrose Cookery day, D seems to love adding to his collection of 'cheffing' autographs.

D was over the moon with the autograph and highly envious of mummy and daddy's special meal out. So we've promised to take him back there one Saturday for Weekend brunch.

  1. I'm so jealous that you guys get to go out on a date. We have not been out for long before Opeie made an appearance. I'm glad you both had a great night xxx

    1. thanks Pauly. It really did feel weird as it was the first time for a long time that we'd had a meal without the kids being around. x
