8 Easy Actions to Combat Climate Change

If you’ve been following me on my social media channels, you will know that I’ve recently been spamming various articles related to the recent report on climate change at the United Nations. For a while, we assumed that climate change was a problem for future generations, but the recent report has shown that the effects could be felt in as little as 5 years. There is a lot that can be done to try and help save our future, ranging from reducing travel (yes that means fewer holidays), reducing plastic use, recycling more, buying more sustainably etc.

Whilst you can argue that the government must be the one to make major changes, I’m optimistic that consumer power can have an effect if we all just DO SOMETHING. The rise in vegetarian and vegan options is certainly not something that was created via a top-down approach! If we want to continue to have any quality of life over the next few decades of our lives, drastic action is required by all, and we need it fast!

As this blog primarily focuses on food, I will be discussing some thoughts specifically related to this but will also touch on some of the other stuff.

Honey Restaurant at Hotel Gotham

Honey Restaurant resides inside Hotel Gotham, towering over King Street. The building was designed by Edwin Lutyens in 1928 in the Art Deco style which was common at the time. Lutyens designed many homes, public buildings and memorials worldwide, notably in New Delhi. Constructed from stone and steel into a castle-like design, it used to house the Midland Bank. Whilst Jamie Oliver has taken the ground hall, the upper floors house the hotel with Honey Restaurant on the 6th floor and Club Brass, a VIP only lounge and bar, on the 7th floor.

It is one of those places where you have to dress up for the occasion in order to be let in, so I’ve never had a reason to venture inside. I was excited when I was invited to a VIP taster menu celebrating 3 years of the hotel and restaurant.*
