Medcalf Restaurant - Exmouth Market

I photographed Medcalf Restaurant recently for an East London food story I was pitching. They kindly cooked me their famous Bavette Steak with horseradish, which was amazing. It has some great traditional British dishes with a modern simple twist. Exmouth Market is a really interesting place at the moment with lots of lovely restaurants, bars and independant shops. The wonderful 'Caravan' is also here.

Copita Time Out

I photographed 'Copita' recently for Time Out Magazine. A new Tapas restaurant in Soho on 26 D'Arblay Street. The dishes were amazing. Pictured above are the razor clams, anchovy fillet with broadbean ice cream, baked duck egg with girolles and my favourite the Ajo blanco - Andalucian white soup made from almonds with a hint of garlic and roasted beetroot.
