Henrietta Inman Pâtissière
Having worked as a professional pastry chef in some of London's finest restaurants, Henrietta brings the skills of an old-school patissier to her baking. And yet, her cakes, which are free from refined flour, sugar, and dairy are unlike anything else out there. The fact that they are free from those ingredients is, of course, a bonus, but it's the amazing flavors she creates using natural ingredients that's impressive. Her cakes, which she bakes for delivery across London, are sort of mind-blowing, in the intensity of their flavor, the perfection of their texture, and her beautiful decorations, which often include home-grown edible flowers. Henrietta has a lot to show the world about how much further baking can go, and for the curious, she teaches plenty of workshops and one-on-ones. East London based, she delivers across the city.
River Tours
Imperial Wharf Marina, The Boulevard, Fulham
See the city from a different angle: Choose from a sightseeing cruise of your chosen stretch of the river (we like Thames Limo, which leaves from Fulham), enjoy tea on the Thames, or simply use the regular boat service as an alternative to the Tube. Single fares range from just under £4 to £13, depending on how far you want to go. For around £15, you can get a River Roamer ticket that entitles you to unlimited travel to all of London's fifteen piers.
