Caravan London

Caravan London

You may remember a while back I went to Caravan at Kings Cross for some amazing brunch with my girl Katie. Here’s the link just in case. I had the chance to visit another one of the Caravan family back in September, after a group of us had done an escape room for a hen do. We were exhausted and starving.

Caravan Bankside is gorgeous, the kind of place nice couples might go to on a date. Though it is casual, you’ll want to be dressed to impress (just like at the Kings Cross branch). I wasn’t feeling any of the large plates so chose two smaller and a snack.

This is the chargrilled hispi cabbage with miso, shiso and Stilton. Ho-ly cow this was good. Probably the best thing I’ve eaten in 2017 (how often have I said this…must look into it). It’s probably meant to be shared but there was no way I was sharing this. It was so juicy, umami and sticky. Sadly the shiso flavour wasn’t coming through as I’d hoped, but the combination of flavours was just perfect.

Next we have the Chapel and Swan smoked salmon with furikake. I was saying to a Japanese friend how furikake is used more and known more by regular people these days, and how his (large Japanese food) company should start selling it here. The salmon was amazing, not overly smoked. Perfect.

Lastly I had the potato bread with lime butter. My dad makes potato bread in his breadoven when we’re all home over Christmas. Dad’s is still the best of course, but this was a very close second. I very much like lime, it’s one of my favourite flavours (alongside shiso), so the butter was also very relevant to my interests.

It was a smashing meal, great for a treat. I would absolutely go and eat that cabbage again.

How to Use LinkedIn for Marketing

In my job, I have to think about marketing a lot. Not only thinking about our brand as a whole, but I need to be marketing my events so that professionals from a wide range of industries will come and speak with students.

For me, one of the best platforms to market on is LinkedIn. If the people you want to reach are professionals, then this is the place you should be targeting. [Read more…]

Station Tavern, Cambridge

Cambridge is a very exciting place to be right now. Things are opening all over the place and the tribe of cool people are finding themselves flinging themselves across the city to try out each new offering.

With the completion of the new station square comes a brand new pub – The Station Tavern. The opening party was an excellent bash filled to the rafters with local influencers and business people. [Read more…]

Why Mentoring Is So Important

My last job was in a very male environment. While everyone I worked with were good people, there was a lot of masculine banter and I felt that often, as a woman, my ideas were not as valued as well as my male colleagues’.

I reached out to someone higher up in the company, a woman who was very strong in her position. She is the type of business person who can be seen as cold and heartless, but does the nasty bits of business that no one wants to do – like telling people they’re not meeting their targets. While I didn’t necessarily relate to her or aspire to be like her, I do, at some point in my life want to be a strong business woman on her level. [Read more…]
