Hautelist: Christmas Gifts for Foodies

As we are officially one month away from Christmas, this week we will be making your present buying much easier! We’ve put together some tailored gift lists depending on whether your loved ones are real foodies, globetrotters or would just love something new to wear or use. Everything we have picked is basically what we would like to see for ourselves under the tree (we hope certain people are reading this!!!) so we have really scoured the web for you – if you like our taste in other things, then all you’ll need to do is click and buy and we hope your family and friends will like what you’ve chosen – let us know if they go down well!!

For today’s Christmas Hautelist, we’re focusing on the foodies… especially those who have been to every new restaurant in town and have kitted out their kitchens – there’s always a gadget they won’t have!

Haute Eats: Bobo Social

There’s a glut of burger joints in The Big Smoke. It’s not an exaggeration to say that, like Starbucks, there seems to be one on every street corner. There are some we love: the dirty burgers at Meatliquor with their squidgy, soft buns and deep fried pickles on the side, the gourmet grown-up treats at Burger & Lobster, and the epically monikered hamburgers at Patty & Bun (the Ari Gold is the winner). There are some we’re less fussed about however they will remain nameless.

 

So when we heard about Bobo Social we sighed with burger fatigue. Another one? But wait. We sighed too soon.

Haute Eats: Fera at Claridges

Michelin star dining in London can be stiffer than a starched white cravat. The layers of complex cutlery, the endless processions of amuse bouche, and the eerily quiet rooms where you can hear a parmesan tuile crack.

Don’t get us wrong, we’ve been blessed to eat in such fine establishments, but we’ve long searched for a restaurant that serves top quality nosh minus the pomp.

Step in Simon Rogan. To quote his lovely website verbatim Simon is “one of the most accomplished and well respected chefs in the UK”. You might remember him from the Great British Menu where he nabbed the dessert crown in season 7, or you might know that he’s famed for foraging. Either way we think he’s a bit of a legend and jumped for joy to get a table at his London outpost Fera.
