Cook meat like a Michelin Chef

Chocolatey virtual experiences
Finally something to soothe your chocolate cravings! Melt are offering virtual experiences that will get you experiencing chocolate in new ways.

Free online reading
Did you know that if you are a library member you can gain access to a variety of premium online content including audio books, magazines and newspapers? Publications include Vogue, The Economist, Forbes and much more. If you’re not yet a library member you can simply sign up online which will give you access to all the online resources.
Become a wine connoisseur
Let’s face it, there’s no better way to spend a Friday evening drinking a glass (or two) of wine. Why not switch this up with an educational spin? Armit Wines have launched a series of at-home masterclasses where you can learn about flavour profiles and styles so you can impress your friends and family (or it can just be a great excuse to have wine).
Save British cheese
Support Britain’s cheesemakers with The Fine Cheese Co. by purchasing their delicious cheese selection: Colston Bassett Stilton, Ogleshield and Pitchfork Cheddar. This Kensington business is offering free delivery in Kensington, and you can order anything you can find in their shop or online as well as a range of freshly made cooked meals, cakes and staples such as eggs, bread and milk.
Polish your knowledge of natural history
Still want to go to the Natural History Museum? While the museum is currently closed, you can still take a virtual tour of the museum online. If you’re looking for something that you can do with your kids, you can find activities and ideas to occupy yourself and your family at home. Additionally, on the 27th of May you can join the museums’ live stream event to learn how to paint Hope the blue whale.
