Last night some of my very good friends and I hopped aboard The Orient Express to celebrate my birthday. This meant 1930s to 1940s outfits, Edith Piaf and a very glamorous dining room turned dining car.

When my passengers arrived we had some Pimm’s before taking our seats and opening goody bags. I stuck the logo of Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits – the rail company which operated The Orient Express – onto the bags and filled them with apple tea, baklava, chocolates, florentines and an Orient Express poster.

Our first stop for dinner was Istanbul, where we had a starter of red lentil koftas and Turkish olive salad. On arrival at Paris we had chicken in white wine sauce from Rachel Khoo’s Little Paris Kitchen and in Munich, on a different line, we had Black Forest gateau. All with lots of prosecco, bien sûr!

A perfect weekend in London started with a Friday treat to myself for working so hard. In the end I forgot all about the Lulu Guinness Annabelle and went for something much more classic.
