Tom Aikens is the man. Not only is he a Michelin starred chef (round of applause please), but he also gave the world Tom’s Kitchen. Or should I say, kitchens, as there’s four restaurants in London alone and even one in Istanbul (#Jetsetter). Here’s the low-down: It’s a modern British brasserie that serves up your comfort food favourites, but with some pretty awesome ingredients. That makes brekkie a whole lot more fantastic than that eggy toast you were about to whip up at home (ahem, unless you’re an experienced chef with some fantastic suppliers, then you go right ahead).
So remember, as you take another bite into your Brioche French Toast (topped with caramelised apples and a dollop of cinnamon cream, just saying), you’re actually eating the best of seasonal and locally sourced ingredients provided by passionate British farmers and suppliers. Oh dayum.
