How to choose the perfect whisky for Christmas

Single malt whisky is are a massive waste of money, like expensive alcohol of any variety. Despite that I’ve loved them since a fantastic barman in Motel, Wellington, New Zealand introduced me to Talisker over a decade ago. Springbank is my current favourite but I’ve found maps like the one in this article quite useful for finding others that I might like to try.

Vanilla Black

Vanilla Black is a great vegetarian restaurant in central London. The food is extremely inventive with a fantastic pea and Marmite dumpling soup being far more subtle than the name suggests but very rich and satisfying. All of the flavours are subtle and cleverly combined for some of the best vegetarian cooking I’ve tried.
