A LITTLE GUIDE: 3 Luxury Foodie Experiences

Spending money on all the latest beauty, wellness & lifestyle products is a well-know ritual for the A LITTLE FIND team and one that we enjoy. However not all of us are this way, we know there are some out there who do spending a bit differently... oh yes - food. Here is a round up of our top 3 luxury and, in A LITTLE FIND fashion, unique foodie experiences.

CHOCOLATE MASTERCLASS

Set in the beautiful Paris House Restaurant, enjoy a chocolate and petit fours masterclass. Where you'll learn the basic principles of working with chocolate, a very satisfying, versatile ingredient to work with - and delicious! Learn how to temper and work different chocolates, creating your own beautiful petits fours.

This intimate 4-person masterclass taught by Phil Fanning, a Michelin chef with many awards and accolades to his name, whose easy-going and friendly nature creates an informal and fun environment in which to learn, also includes tea and coffee on arrival, a glass of bubbles and canapes, and a 5-course lunch at the Chef's Table. Sign us up! 

Sake no Hana, part of the Hakkasan group, is awash with linear bamboo, and cypress wood giving the feel of a futuristic forest providing a soft veil to the backdrop of busy St.James’s Street where this spectacular class is held. Beginning with tea at 10am, each half-day sake masterclass offers an introduction to the history and production of Japan’s national drink, with a particular focus on how and when to drink it.

Guests will try a selection of different sakes, and the masterclass will include a just as delectable lunch. You'll also receive a gift bag, once you're full and probably slightly wobbly, which includes a small bottle of sake and a traditional Japanese kikichoko ‘snake eye’ sake cup.

BELMOND BRITISH PULLMAN

Full of nostalgia, the steam engine brings back memories of a bygone era. The round-trip on the Belmond British Pullman, includes a five-course lunch with champagne and half a bottle of wine per person. So not strictly a purely food experience but the food is definitely top notch and sourced from the UK using seasonal ingredients.

Delight in the elegance of the beautiful carriages with plush armchairs, tables topped with elegant glasses, crips linen and pretty flowers. There's so many fun trips to choose from including murder mystery (of course, one of the carriages is from the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express after all), dinners from renowned chefs, plus the chance to dress up like it's the 1920's!
