Four Winters

We were invited down to the new liquid nitrogen ice cream parlour Four Winters on Gloucester Road recently for a day of ice cream making and tasting!

They have a huge range of liquid bases, toppings and add-ins that you can pick from to create your own flavour.

We chose to use cookie dough with crushed lotus biscuits, chocolate crunchies, roasted marshmallows and chocolate sauce. Now here comes the fun part - watching them freeze your mixture into ice cream using liquid nitrogen at -196°C right before your eyes! This ensures that the ice cream turns out as smooth as possible. To watch the process in motion check out our video.

And here is the fabulous finished product which we shall call “the LFB”. Absolutely delicious if we may say so ourselves! ;)

We were then introduced to their delicious new autumn flavour menu - and tried all four of course! This season’s menu includes Pumpkin Harvest, S’mores, Green Apple-Pear Sorbet and Candied Sweet Potato. 

The Pumpkin Harvest (above left) is made with pumpkin, brown sugar and spice and topped with maple syrup and crushed lotus biscuits – the perfect autumn flavour! The S’mores flavour (above right) is made up from a cinnamon and brown sugar base with roasted marshmallows and homemade graham crackers – absolutely delish.

Above left you see the Candied Sweet Potato option, which is sweet potato mixed with cinnamon and sugar topped with roasted marshmallows. Lastly, one we particularly enjoyed, is the green apple and pear flavour which is more like a sorbet and comes topped with cranberries – yum!

And the fun didn’t stop here… Since you can choose your own flavours to create milkshakes we just had to try some! We picked the peanut butter cup flavour and the blueberry parfait from their all year round fusion menu.

We would definitely recommend this place for the special experience of ice cream making but also for the incredibly unique flavours! Make sure you follow them on Instagram to stay up to date with their new seasonal flavours.


LFB, xx

Burger Week with French's UK

As you would already know if you follow us on Instagram, we recently teamed up with French’s UK to find the best burgers in all of London! After 7 days of hard work (and countless calories), here’s our summary of Burger Week: 

Day 1: The Domo Burger at Honkey Tonk

We had the absolutely massive Domo burger (6-inch bacon and cheese burger), created in honour of the Super Bowl and available for a limited time only. 

The Super Bowl was showing at a big screen (although we were more interested in the food...) and the atmosphere was great! 

Day 2: The Bleecker Black at Bleecker St Burger

Of course we had to feature our long-time favourite Bleecker St! This time we went for the Bleecker Black - a double patty cheese burger with black pudding (and a generous serving of French's Mustard). All their burgers are served medium rare and literally melt in your mouth. 

Day 3: The Smokey Robinson at Patty & Bun

After talking about going here for over a year, Burger Week was a great excuse to finally visit Patty & Bun! And the Smokey Robinson did not disappoint - beef patty, cheese, tomato, lettuce, caramelised onions, bacon, ketchup, smokey p&b mayo in a glazed brioche bun. 

Nom nom nom

Day 4: The Cheese Boom at Boom Burger

Boom Burger, located on Portobello Road, is a nice little Jamaican burger joint with a great vibe and fitting music. We got the Cheese Boom burger which was super tasty and cheesy to say the least. The fries are also a must!

 

Day 5: The Dead Hippie at MEAT Liquor

In time for our Burger competition, we visited MEAT Liquor to try their burgers and give away a free one to one lucky Instagram follower (check out the competition here). Don't miss their special "Dead Hippie Burger" with 2 X French's Mustard-fried beef patties with the special "dead hippie" sauce.

We visited the new Upper Street location, which was once an old Citroen garage, with graffiti on the walls and a super industrial feel to it. 

Day 6: The Tribute Burger at Honest Burger

Honest Burger is a classic burger spot that we keep coming back to. Bacon, cheese, onions, pickles and French's Mustard - what's not to love?! 

All burgers are served with rosemary fries (amazing!) and, if you're still hungry, make sure to order their spicy chicken wings as well!

Day 7: The Dip & Flip Burger at Dip & Flip

For the final burger we went all out with this special cheeseburger with slices of roast beef that you dip in gravy! If you haven't tried it yet, get down to Dip & Flip in Battersea immediately - there's really nothing like it. It may sound like a strange concept but it tastes amazing - might just be our favourite..! 

And don't forget the French's mustard!!
