Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Slice

Getting to walk past Buckingham Palace every morning or coming out of the Tube at Westminster, only to look up and see Big Ben standing across the black cabbed road, it can all seem kind of surreal to live here.

And when busy life takes hold it can also be extremely easy to forget where you are or what you can see just by deliberately getting lost. So on Friday night, my friend Pilar and I got deliberately lost after downing an Elvis shake at The Breakfast Club and walked the streets near Piccadilly Circus, through Chinatown and wherever else the narrow streets lead us.

The beauty of living somewhere you didn’t grow up in is the ability to discover a new place to eat or a street with a great little vintage shop. And becoming friends with people who are equally not from here is another reason to deliberately get lost.

Sometimes winging it in the kithen results in a delightful surprise like this slice that I had people at work asking for the recipe for.
