Weekly Love: Week 200

Welcome to the 200th edition (!) of Weekly Love! It seems like every fortnight when I sit down to write one of these something bad has happened, so today I want to focus on something positive, Borough Market (which not only is my local, but will always have a special place in my heart as my first ever paid column as a food writer, and my first print feature) which re-opened on Wednesday. Not only has the council pledged business rate relief for the businesses inside the police barrier zone who were unable to open until this week, I want to draw your attention to the Borough Market Relief Fund where you can donate to help the small traders who may be put at risk by the loss of stock and trading days. Please give what you can!

1. Counting down, less than 7 weeks now until Student Eats is published! (Pre-order it here!) | 2. Happy to be back in my office taking in my beautiful view of the Palace of Westminster (in spite of all the scaffolding!) | 3. A superb (and super cheap) brunch in the Soho sunshine at Bun House – full review coming soon. | 4. Our favourite Rioja brand Campo Viejo has a fantastic Fiesta of Colour wine terrace in Waterloo Millennium Gardens – it’s a sun trap with lots of great things to drink and a wonderful tapas food truck where we hung out after work last night – be sure to check it out, as it is only around until Sunday! | 5. Lazy Sunday Polpo Aperol Spritz. | 6. My new Deliveroo favourite: Arabica at Borough Market.

What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the weekend? I’m heading back to Kent to celebrate Fathers Day with my Daddy (because I clearly have not had enough of trains and packing my suitcase recently!), and to shoot an exciting barbecue feature I can’t wait to share with you! For more like this, don’t forget to sign up to my monthly newsletter, which hits your inboxes on the first Sunday of each month, packed full of seasonal eats, mini cookbook reviews, and other updates.
