Chocolate Golden Cake, courtesy of L'Orchidee, Westfield Stratford

A while ago I was invited to Rhythm Kitchen in Westfield Stratford, and was shown how to make the most delicious Sea Bass.   (There is a video on my sidebar).

I was recently sent a downloadable recipe book incorporating recipes from Westfields diverse collection of East London restaurants.

In all its glory!

I chose to give the Chocolate Golden Cake a whirl, courtesy of L'Orchidee, and as it was the Paralympics added my own twist with some red, white and blue decorations.

The recipe did make probably double the quantity of chocolate butter cream though, so next time will halve!

Below is more information, with an opportunity for you to download your free copy too!

Today Westfield Stratford City launches a free downloadable cookery book, packed full of recipes from its famously diverse collection of East London restaurants.
Showcasing Westfield Stratford City’s extensive food offering, the ‘Around The World Recipes From Westfield’ book hopes to inspire visitors to taste something new at the centre and try some of the authentic recipe creations at home.
The cookery book features 25 recipes from ten popular restaurants including a variety of cuisines like moussaka from The Real Greek, Busaba Eathai’s pandan chicken, Caribbean sea bass by Rhythm Kitchen and All Star Lanes’ champion chilli con carne.
To assist with re-creating the dishes from home, the cookbook highlights expert advice from senior chefs at these leading restaurants, describing why their recipes were selected.
Executive Chef at Busaba Eathai, Krit Sangsida, describes their pandan chicken as: “Great for family and friends, when you have a special occasion.”
Thomasina Miers, co-owner of Wahaca, points out that: “The secret to a good guacamole is to really mash up the chilli to a paste before you even think about adding the avocado.”
To download the free cookbook and watch videos of the chefs re-creating these much-loved recipes step-by-step, visit:
As well as accommodating 1100 diners in The Balcony area alone, Westfield Stratford City has over 50 places to eat and drink, so hungry shoppers will be sure to find something to their taste.
