Truffle risotto, the creamiest gelato and an afternoon tea fit for a prince. Here are five London food finds from July!

1. Gelato, Venchi.

This family run chocolate business does some UH-MAZING chocolate and gelato. Wall to wall with every type you can imagine, they do spreads, bars and even have their own ‘choco-gelateria’ downstairs. All made to an Italian recipe of the highest quality which you really can tell. How much do you want to lick the screen right now? Tastes like a better Nutella (I didn’t just say that).

Venchi, Covent Garden Gelato - July's Food Finds18, Henrietta St, London WC2E 8RB http://www.venchi.com

 

2. Truffled Risotto, Frescobaldi.

A high-end Italian restaurant doing all the classics to a fine dining standard. Beautiful interior and an extensive wine list make it a right one for date night, business clients or treating yourself one Saturday night. When somewhere loads on the truffle, you know your in for a treat!

3. EVERYTHING, Pachamama.

Peruvian inspired small plates that you will wish were bigger. Classic ceviche, Peruvian fried chicken, and melt in your mouth pork belly are just a few you need to get. Don’t even get me started on desserts and the coconut, brown butter ‘Leche Frita’ will make you want to set up camp in the restaurant and have it every day.

4. Taste Film does Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

This time they did Charlie, but keep an eye on the website for future events. The idea is a film with food based around that film. In the past, they’ve done Notting Hill and Pulp Fiction. Upcoming is Sex and The City and everyone’s favorite Hook with Robin Williams. Just waiting to see if they do 50 Shades of Grey now…

5. Genies Cave Afternoon Tea, Cutter and Squidge.

Cutter and Squidge based in Soho do the prettiest cakes, treats, and biskies (Two sandwiched biscuits and filled with cream). Their Genies Cave Afternoon Tea is pretty spectacular and any Aladdin fans will go crazy for this one. Tea from a lamp and 24 carat gold covered selection. Calling all Disney fans right now.
