Maze // Gordan Ramsey

Maze has an exciting menu encompassing the traditional French cuisine with an Asian influence in tasting sized dishes, allowing the diners to sample an array of flavours and textures. We recently went for a spot of lunch at Gordan Ramsey’s Maze in Grosvenor Square and went for their exciting lunch bites menu; four courses for £25. Choosing from a range of savoury and sweet dishes I opted for the steamed sea bream to start with brussel sprouts, enoki mushrooms, ginger and dashi which gave a very fragrant light dish followed by the pork dumplings in an aromatic mushroom broth which really flared the Asian fusion influence. I finished my savoury dishes with the braised beef feather blade accompanied with a pomme puree which was divine, melt in the mouth beef with a rich pomme puree with an exciting twist from the togarashi spice gave a traditional dish an exciting contemporary touch. My sweet followed; a gorgeous parfait with a very festive clove ice cream got me very excited for the afternoon of Christmas shopping. This four course menu for £25 is very much worth it, with generous sized tasting dishes and an extensive cocktail and wine list it’s ideal for a lunch out with girls or treating your partner to a little fine dining.

Have been out of action for so long

Image

It’s been a while … Been a bit under the weather and still recovering. But with all the time I have had on my hands, I have been able to do a lot of thinking about a lot of stuff in general; Something About, work, my third and final year of university amongst a lot of Max’s happenings too with his new EP completed and with us moving house – it is all rather exciting, be it crazy, but very exciting. But we finally feel as if we are back on track again.

To start with we are thinking that Something About should have a slight change in direction giving it more of a personal touch including showcasing events we’ve attended, taken part in or hosted, sharing photographs and snippets of our lives as well as anything and everything that tickles our interest. With perhaps a focus and outlet for reviews for new music releases, events and upcoming artists. Unfortunately due to university and work commitments posts wont be as regular as before, however we feel the content will have more depth and on more of a personal level. We want Something About to be a creative outlet for ourselves and our interests.

It’s at a very exciting time at the moment for us both, although very busy – Max with his recently completed new EP, which is sounding really great and we cant wait to share a sneak peak with you. He has also just received a rather snazzy new toy (which he hasn’t put down yet, looks and sounds amazing!) of which he will be incorporating within his Koven sets. Also our dear friend and vocalist in Koven, Kate, is moving up to the big smoke tomorrow, which is going to be fabulous!

As for me, my third and final year of university is beckoning and I can’t decide whether I am excited or nervous. I literally can not believe how fast the past two years have flown by, we have been living in London for two years…where has the time gone! But now is the time to buckle up and focus on the coming academic year…wish me luck.

And for the remainder of the week we finally have a little bit of time for each other, thinking about heading to central, shopping, grabbing a bite to eat or perhaps a stroll through Hyde Park tomorrow, then back to our flat to start packing up our stuff for the new house before our busy few weeks ahead.

Hope everyone is having a lovely summer.
