CULTURE BY CANDLELIGHT

Jan 27, 2014 12:44:49 PM

There is nothing better than a night at the theatre and one of our favourite places to see a show is Shakespeare’s Globe. We were delighted to hear that the second theatre, the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, is now open and built within an inch of The Bard’s Jacobean dreams.  Even though the playhouse is a lot smaller than the globe, the visuals inside do not disappoint. The stage backdrop is carved and gilded, with trompe l’oeil decorations on the walls and the standout feature? It is all lit by candlelight.

PARIS IS ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA

Jan 24, 2014 10:54:40 AM

Paris has been named Lonely Planet’s number 1 city to visit in 2014 and we can understand why. With the new car free zone along the Left Bank avec floating gardens it has never been a better time to fall in love with Paris for the first time or all over again. Head to the MiH blog to see our team’s tips on where to go in Paris.

 

Paris

 

Susan, Global Head of Press

  • I always stop by one of the many many pharmacies dotted around Paris – I could (and do!) browse for hours but I am never without Goop’s guide to the French Pharmacy – essential reading for these trips I kid you not.
  • For the proper fashion experience, I go for dinner at Brasserie Lipp (so iconic, so French) or Café Ruc (I don't think I've ever managed to finished dinner before 2am…), and if I'm feeling really fancy, champagne at L'Avenue.

 

Natalie, Operations and Logistics Officer

  • Tacos in the front and cocktail bar in the back – Candelaria is my kind of place! 
  • The best steak I have had was at Chez Janou 
  • I will never get bored of Colette

 

Johan, Managing Director

  • Whenever I am in Paris I like to stay at Mama Shelter. It’s also great for dinner, drinks and live music.
  • I always enjoy dinner at Hotel Du Nord in Quai de Jemmapes

 

Jess, Head of Design

  • I like to walk through the Marais taking in the lovely shops – merci and centre commercial especially and the head to Place des Vosges which leads you through to the village of St Pauls. Here you will find a few lovely antique shops, including a vintage stationery shop that sells old exercise books and pencils.
  • If you're looking for somewhere to stay, the Ile St Louis is an utterly romantic place to stay in Paris. There is a lovely café at one end of the island that is tucked behind Notre Dame, serving tea and hot chocolate from silver teapots and jugs. You get a perfect view of the river and the back of Notre Dame, it's really peaceful and I like to think no one knows about it, though I did see Robert de Niro in here once…
  • Walk through the Latin quartier through to Odeon and St Germain, making time for all the cool French girl boutiques like Isabel Marant on Rue Jacob and Les Praries de Paris on Rue pre aux Clercs. There's a Laduree shop handily between the two, for a box of Langues des Chats biscuits in the best packaging.

 

SJ, Social Media and Online Marketing Officer

  • Free'P'Star is not just a store, it is an adventure. I have to prepare myself before I enter this vintage store but it is an Aladdin’s trove of goodies at very reasonable prices. You need to roll up your sleeves to sometimes find buried treasure but the thrill is worth it.
  • L'As du Fallafel is outstanding. It even got a shout out in the New York Times it is that good. It is so easy to find in Marais, just follow the queue of people.
  • My one huge indulgence in Paris is hot chocolate and cake at Angelina. I love to sit back and enjoy the elegance then attempt to work off the calories walking around the Tuileries Garden which is opposite.

GAME CHANGER GREENS

Jan 13, 2014 12:11:03 PM

We are always looking for a way to mix up our meals and this recipe has revolutionised our favourite green. It may sound so simple but it is effective! This recipe for roasted broccoli transforms this humble veg so that the florets become crispy and the stalks become sweet. We may be a little late to the bandwagon, but we are encouraging you to jump on it!
