La Chapelle Hosts a Best of Malbec Dinner: Monday 8 May

seen-london

It will come as no surprise to the astute reader that SEEN is very partial to a nice glass of Malbec. Imagine our delight when we heard of a rather fabulous Malbec dinner, to take place at 7pm tonight at La Chapelle.

The menu sounds divine: Cumbrian beef tartare, truffle emulsion, shaved parmesan & baby artichokes, accompanied by a 2014 Malbec “Vista Flores”; Lasagne of Dorset crab, shellfish bisque, with a 2014 Chardonnay “Historic Rows”; Breast of Goosnargh duck à l’orange, Tokyo turnip, caramelised daikon & orange purée washed down with a 2011 Nicolas Catena Zapata.

A selection of cheese will go delightfully no doubt with a 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon “Historic Rows”, whilst Warm Valrhona chocolate fondant, confit kumquats & vanilla ice-cream will complement a 2011 Malbec “Nicasia”. Coffee & petit fours end this sumptuous spread. The menu is £120.00 per person, VAT & service charge are included, but get in quick, this is happening tonight! Bon appétit.

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?
