Asparagus and Smoked Chicken Quiche

Triple Coconut Cream Pie

Monday night involved a lot of eye rolling induced by amazing food and it all happened thirty eight floors above London as the rain lashed at the windows and the golden tree swayed in the wind at Sushi Samba. After excitedly waiting three weeks for our booking on a Monday of all days to roll…
