Editor’s Letter

Welcome to the first issue of Tea and Toast magazine. I am so excited to share this issue with you! In this issue you will find a mix of fashion and food, two of our favourite things here at Tea and Toast. This issue is based all around the theme of the weekend, with elements that will please each variety of weekenders; relaxed brunch recipes and sparkly fashion editorials for glamorous Saturday nights out. A guide to one our favourite locations, Old Spitalfields Market, giving you all the tips and information you will need for a trip. We have ventured into the biggest trends for Spring/Summer 2014, with a personal favourite in the form of pyjamas as stylish day wear which I particularly enjoyed styling. A special thank you goes to all who modelled, assisted, and generally helped in the collation of the issue, I couldn’t have done it without any of you! Happy Reading!

Livvy Newman, Editor-In-Chief

Sunday Strolling Old Spitalfields Market 16 Horner Square Spitalfields London E1 6EW

Tea and Toast’s guide to Old Spitalfields Market, telling you the best places to eat, shop and explore! Located five minutes away for Liverpool Street station Old Spitalfields Market offers a refreshing juxtaposition to the towering buildings around the busiest spot in the city. It embodies the new and old elements of London, a well maintained market with modern restaurants but has all the charm of old London. It is also a very short walk for Brick lane, the vintage hub of the city allowing for a visit to show off all the elements of what London has to offer. Sunday mornings is the recommended time to visit as all the stalls and food markets are in full swing, however it provides a much calmer atmosphere on a weekday evening when visiting one of the restaurants. The market has a huge range of stalls selling mainly handmade and vintage 19

items, ranging from clothes and jewellery to leather bags. If you’re a little more food orientated there a huge range of food stalls, mainly sweet to compliment the many restaurants and permanent food fixtures. As well as the market there are a large variety of clothes shops such as Dr Martens, Jones and Jones, Traffic People and Barbour. A recent addition to the shopping experience is pop up shops, a recent pop up shop addition is the hugely successful Cambridge Satchel Company. For the more creative shoppers Lomography, One Deko, and Lollipop Shoppe which range from interior design to photography. Go for a little wander next time you’re in the area!


Tea and Toast’s Eating Picks Cafe Caribbean | A Large range of curries and other Caribbean delights ready to take away and be enjoyed whilst wandering around the market. Pipel | A falafel and hummus bar that offer huge portions and warm pitta bread, ideal for a summer afternoon. Square Pie | Perfect for a chilly winters day, with all indigents sourced from Britain this embodies classic comfort food. The Diner | A restaurant that exemplifies the classic and cool American style. Burgers, milkshakes and much more, ideal for the nostalgic (and hungry) in you.


Fancy Eggs Ingredients A large free-range egg or 2 depending on appetite A medium sized loaf of fresh sour dough bread 100g pack of fresh asparagus 6 pieces of Parma ham Salt and pepper to taste

Method Boil fresh egg and asparagus for 2 ½ minutes in separate saucepans.

Whilst the egg and asparagus are boiling cut the bread into thin strips and lightly toast under the grill on both sides, then butter.

Take asparagus out of pan and drain on a piece of kitchen towel, place one piece of asparagus on one strip of bread and wrap a piece of Parma ham round the bread to encase the asparagus. Repeat this method until you have about six pieces.

Crack open egg and sprinkle with salt and pepper, then dip slices into the egg and enjoy. 23

Blueberry Panckaes Ingredients 200g self-raising flour 1 large free-rage egg 1 tsp baking powder 300ml milk 10g unsalted butter 90g blueberries Maple syrup

Method Sieve flour and baking powder into a bowl. Crack egg into the jug the milk is in and beat them together. In small amounts pour flour and baking powder into the milk and egg mixture beating it slowly with a whisk. Melt butter and pour into the mixture and beat slowly again. Leave to stand for 10 minutes. Heat up frying pan and pour in a small amount of oil into the pan to avoid the pancake sticking to the surface. Pour in a small amount of mixture into the pan and press 5 or 6 blueberries into the pancake. Flip to pancake when brown on the bottom, the whole pancake should take about 5 minutes to 25

cook thoroughly. Cover in Maple syrup and dig in.

Lemon Loaf Ingredients 175g Self raising flower 175g caster sugar 175g unsalted butter 3 large three range eggs Zest of two large lemons 2tsp vanilla essence

Method Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together. Mix in one egg and sieve a small amount of flower in and continue mixing, repeat this method until all eggs and flower have been used. Mix in lemon zest and vanilla essence. Grease cake tin with butter and pour mixture in. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, check that loaf is baked right through by piercing it with a skewer and if it coms out clean the loaf is cooked. Leave to cool and tip out of tin, sieve a small amount of icing sugar over the top and decorate with slices of lemon. 27

Cut and enjoy with a cup of tea.
