Recipe — A Typical Greek Squash, Feta and Oregano Pie by Daphnis and Chloe


Over a FaceTime call from our London studio to a sunny cafe in Athens, we chatted to Evangelia Koutsovoulou about her marvellous culinary herb and spice company Daphnis and Chloe.

Patter Places — Toklas


Toklas is a new restaurant set discreetly into an expansive side section of brutalist building 180 The Stand. Founded by British Frieze Art Fair founders Matthew Slotover and Amanda Sharp, the menu elegantly reimagines mediterranean comfort food — served without pretension by a team of friendly staff.

Patter Places — Café Deco


Café Deco is a charming new bar, restaurant and wine shop located in Bloomsbury.
