Melrose and Morgan lured me away from Primrose Hill last night to their Hampstead branch, to take part in their Food Fanatics Supper and Quiz night.
Fabulous fun was had by all as we tucked into a glorious meal knocked up by Louisa Chapman- Andrews, one of the three co-authors of ‘Good Food For Your Table,’ the handbook of the pioneering cafe-grocer-caterers and source of much food-inspiration.
Questions were tough and all teams fought hard for the prize of copies of the book. Glory finally went to ‘the Nuns’ Farts’ team and very worthy winners they were too.
