The Park Table is The Magazine restaurant’s spectacular series of intimate outdoor dinners set in the heart of Kensington Gardens. This year marks the 25th birthday of Kofler & Kompanie, the international caterer that operates The Magazine restaurant. The Park Table perfectly reflects the company’s manifesto, ‘satisfying all senses’, going beyond just imaginative food to creating some of the most exciting and original dining spaces, events and experiences.

Following on from its summer guest chef series The Magazine restaurant has just added Madeleine Shaw. Nutritional health coach, yoga teacher and best-selling author, Shaw will create an unforgettable dining experience for 75 guests seated around one long curving table with the iconic Serpentine Sackler Gallery as the backdrop.

Madeleine’s philosophy is simple: drop junk food and eat your way to a healthy lifestyle that is both sustainable and delicious. She cooks with wholefoods, meat, fish and plenty of flavour.

The menu for her exclusive Park Table dinner will feature Steamed mussels with tomato, olives and chorizo or Roasted cauliflower salad with quinoa, chard, pumpkin seeds and kale chips to start; Quinoa burger, sourdough bun, beetroot humus with sweet potato chips and chilli relish or Spicy pulled pork salad with cabbage, apple, pickled onion, pine nuts, mint, coriander and lime dressing mains and Peanut butter shortbread with coconut ice cream to finish.

Tickets are priced at £55, including Chase cocktails, canapés and a three-course dinner and are available from: www.designmynight.com

As the Sun shines on Earth, so MO-GA’s gender-fluid designs grace the bodies of everyone, rejoicing in ambiguity. Multiple sleeves and feathers recall the animal kingdom in all its glorious diversity; it’s a new aesthetic.

Cocktails at the General Store

SEEN is tireless in her cocktail research, and very much enjoyed travelling to Highbury last week to try The General Store’s new summer cocktail menu and to check out the new interior. She was delighted to sample a Honey Mimosa, very sweet and fruity and just the ticket after a hot journey. It was, as its name suggests, a Mimosa with just a touch of honey.

Canaletto: A Drawing Workshop with Alexandra Blum

SEEN has long been an admirer of Alexandra Blum’s liminal and apocalyptic renderings of London’s urban spaces, in which the capital seems ever-changing. It is the artist’s job to capture not only space but the passage of time itself.

Love Hunt at the British Museum

SEEN had the pleasure (pun intended) of being invited to a ‘Love Hunt’ at the British Museum. The museum, founded in 1753, is committed to preserving art, culture and history, and has collected around 8 million objects. These artefacts come from every corner of the world, revealing a fragment of many significant moments in time, from Mesopotamia to the Vikings; from the Inuits to the Indians. So, when one embarks on a visit to the world famous British Museum, where does one start?
