Our spring issue dinner in Somerset House

On a gorgeous Spring evening on Tuesday 10 April, we sat down to celebrate our latest issue at the stunning Spring restaurant inside London’s Somerset House. Surrounded by trees, fresh flowers and twinkling lights on the conservatory ceiling of their private dining room, it was the perfect way for our team to meet all of you lovely readers who sat down to dine with us...

Our three courses of chef Skye Gyngell’s amazing ‘Scratch’ menu celebrated the recyclable ethos of our issue – and it was a feast of the season’s finest and completely created from produce that would normally go to waste. (You can read more about this in our Spring issue, where we sat down with Skye to find out more, order here).

Between spoonfuls of our mains and desserts we were treated to something very special. An exclusive intimate performance by acclaimed jazz singer Hailey Tuck. Ahead of the release of her album Junk on 4th of May, she serenaded us while our glasses were topped up with Italian wine from our friends at Borough Wines. Simply divine.
