Anatomical Whisky Tasting this Valentine’s Day

Are you stuck for something interesting/original/decadent/not horrendously cheesy to do for Valentine’s Day, either on your own or with a friend or date this year? Do you like Whisky? If the answers to the above are both a resounding ‘yes’, then please read on… If they aren’t, read on anyway and we might be able...
Blind Pig Collective

Blind Pig Collective

Cider with a hint of fruit and the sharp flavour of a spirit may draw to mind those snakebite student days. But there’s no sign of paint-strippingly cheap vodka here, nor Sainsbury’s-own blackcurrant. Cider artisans Blind Pig have turned a questionable classic into a drinkers delight, infusing their cider with wild fruit and hard liquor flavours....
The New Zealand Cellar's Wine Sale

The New Zealand Cellar’s Wine Sale

Every season fashion designers hold their coveted sample sales – a chance for die-hard fans of the label to get their hands on samples and limited editions for a fraction of the price in the shops. So why not the same for high-end wine? That’s certainly the idea behind The New Zealand Cellar’s latest venture...

Le Chalet at Selfridges

Le Chalet at Selfridges

Whilst for some, the festive season brings with it a sense of calm, relaxation, and merriment, these are never things that are found on Oxford Street in December. However, if you find yourself in the seventh circle of hell that is central London at this time of the year and are in need of escape,...
Nordic Yulefest in Shoreditch

Nordic Yulefest in Shoreditch

Nordic Noir: bleak and often incomprehensible television, in recent times it has been (arguably, very arguably) our biggest import from Scandinavia. So, here at Candid we are happy to announce the arrival of something Scandinavian and cheerful: Nordic Yulefest in Shoreditch ­– a positively Viking Christmas fairyland lined with silver birch trees, marzipan pigs and furry...
New Zealand Wine Garage Sale

New Zealand Wine Garage Sale

New Zealand’s finest are taking a trip to Brixton East this December. And no, we don’t mean the people on this occasion, though fine they may be.

Menswear at Mama Brown's

Menswear at Mama Brown’s

Over the last few years, the number of pop-up shops taking temporary residence in areas like Covent Garden has exploded. However, no one has done it on quite the same scale – and with as much panache, as Suzi Brown, proprietor of London’s largest pop-up shop, Mama Brown’s Pop-Up Experience. As an art historian, passionate...
Food & Wine Week at The Devonshire Arms

Food & Wine Week at The Devonshire Arms

Last month, Candid left its usual London stomping ground to roam around the Yorkshire Dales, breathe in the fresh air, rest our heads at The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa and plonk ourselves down at the table of its chef, Adam Smith. This December, Adam will be sharing his kitchen at The Dev with a bevvy...
Hill & Szrok

Hill & Szrok

A butcher, a baker, a candlestick…shop. Broadway Market has it all. However, what it didn’t have until this March was a traditional British butcher shop that turned into a restaurant at night. Enter, Hill & Szrok. Housed in an old butcher’s, which sits in front of the original slaughterhouse for the market, Hill & Szrok...
Nyetimber Winter Pop-up

Nyetimber Winter Pop-up

Move over Champagne. Celebrated English sparkling wine producers, Nyetimber, are joining the London pop-up scene to prove that England truly can rival France – unless it’s football, or perhaps romantic film-making. 25 years ago, they became one of the first wine producers in the UK to plant the Champagne variety of grape. Now, Candid can...

London Restaurant Festival 2014 Awards

The London Restaurant Festival 2014 has come to a close, but not before doing its best to leave a mark on the capital’s restaurant scene by announcing this year’s winners and losers. The festival, which ran across October, is now in its sixth year. 2014 is apparently its biggest year so far too, involving over...
Eat Film at London Restaurant Festival

Eat Film at London Restaurant Festival

‘Dinner and a movie’ is such an ubiquitous concept that it’s surprising that there aren’t more events that bring the two together – aside from overpriced nachos or the occasional ‘gourmet’ cinema. Eat Film, part of the London Restaurant Festival, does exactly that, treating guests to canapés and drinks, a film screening and a three-course...
