Brunch at The Modern Pantry, Clerkenwell

Getting off the tube at Farringdon on a Saturday is a strange feeling – the area is like a ghost town! So much so that some local establishments (such as Bea’s) don’t open at the weekend, apparently catering for the city workers who fill the area during the week. With this in mind it was…

Above is the ‘Feuilleté of Goat’s Cheese’ at Aubaine, which is a beautifully garnished field mushroom and goats cheese tart. Delicious, well-presented and also…
