34 Mayfair Launches Barbecue Boxes


With temperatures rising (despite the drizzle), SEEN would like to urge Londoners everywhere not to forsake the delights of the summer barbecue. Instead, up your BBQ game with these fabulous boxes from 34 Mayfair.

Barbecuing can be a hassle, but these boxes take the stress out of it for you, leaving you to sip something cool and bask in the admiration of your grateful guests.

Renowned for serving up some of the finest grill dishes in the capital, the kitchen at 34 Mayfair pivots around a giant Argentinian parrilla grill: the ultimate barbecue. Head Chef, Harvey Ayliffe, has mastered the skills and techniques to create flavoursome, healthy food on the grill, which diners can now recreate on their own barbecues.

Each kit will contain a selection of recipes for mains, salads and a dessert suggestion for a truly gourmet barbecue, plus some useful equipment and store cupboard essentials. A summer must-have for all food lovers, the boxes are available to purchase at The Mount Street Deli, situated a short walk from 34 Mayfair.

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
