Surprise! Tanya’s is back and it’s eeeeeven better than before! ...If I may say so myself :) But honestly I do really think it's better than before, otherwise I would've never gone for such a drastic change. Keep reading to learn what's new. You might remember that almost three years earlier, in July 2014, I opened Tanya’s Cafe inside My Chelsea with pop-ups soon to follow at a Fitness Centre and in Selfridges. The cafe was hailed one of the top raw food restaurants in Europe and has seen clientele such as the Rolling Stones, Fearne Cotton, Millie Mackintosh, Lorraine Pascale, Julie Montagu and more! Operating from a single tiny kitchen in Chelsea, we had to turn down numerous opportunities to stock my famous guilt-free Cheezecakes, organic Living Lasagnas and Superfood drinks anywhere else. We decided to change that and closed the restaurant in November of last year for a big and super exciting remodel! [caption id="attachment_2493" align="aligncenter" width="1022"] source @kajaand on IG[/caption] On 19th June 2017, Tanya’s opened its doors once again, but in a very new way! Here's what's different: -We're now open from 7am till 11pm with the full menu restocked into the store’s fridges each morning. -Pop in on your way to work to pick up an Adventure Salad Bowl without the wait. -Our partnership with My Chelsea means that the beautiful newly refurbished The Living Room is now available to all of Tanya’s customers and My Chelsea guests, so if you’re after a Medicinal Mushroom Latte with coconut milk and your colleague needs her traditional Cappuccino (or vice versa), there’s no more need to dine in separate restaurants. -We made it easily accessible for you to pop in and either Grab’n’Go or Grab’n’DineIn. We've even installed our very own door from street level! -It’s very relaxed and there are now power points all throughout, so bring your laptop and work away in a green living environment. -Tanya’s partnership with Deliveroo and Quiqup means that you can get anything delivered throughout London! -My famous whole cakes are now available to purchase and collect in-store without preorder. Soon they will be available for online order also to be delivered across London. Expect to see Tanya’s best-sellers at various London’s shops soon, but for now- come and be among the first to experience the brand-new Tanya’s and The Living Room. Aaaand for 7 days starting tonight (Monday 3rd July), you can get 2 meals for the price of 1 when Dining In or Taking Out (excludes delivery, cheapest free)! Choose from Living Lasagna, Thai Curry Kelp Noodles, Adventure Bowls, a bunch of Salad Sides or Dipping Pots are all part of the deal!
One of the super cute things I had my girls help me organise for our wedding is this awesome mimosa bar. It got so much amazing feedback, that I decided to take note of everyone's favourite flavours and serve them at next week's SupperClub!
It will be such a gorgeous event- the dishes and flavours we are preparing for you require so much time, love and attention, that we came to a unanimous decision to not keep you wondering what they’ll be till the actual night!
Now that you know how worth it this menu is to get all excited for, your positive vibes will charge each living ingredient all the way to your plate and to your healthy cells! Take a look…

I don’t actually mean that our wedding was a cyclone, rather there was a roof-blowing-tree-breaking-wave-crashing cyclone on the one day, which we picked to get married.
It was quite spectacular really.
All day before the ceremony began, we had messages coming through trying to make us feel better about the weather and friends all around kept asking how we could be so calm, when outside was everything but calm. But it’s as though we didn’t understand the question…
I am lucky to be married to a wise man, who also believes that everything is as it should be, who goes with the flow and for whom a storm means just one thing: epic surf the next day. And anyway- all we’ve been hearing months before we even said our “I do’s” is how much luck a rainy wedding day brings to a married life, so we both decided that a cyclone must mean that this luck is multiplied tenfold.
Then just like that- the rain stopped for a while to give us a wee window of opportunity for beach photography (above) and the only person that was nearly as crazy as us to be out happened to be a woman, which we can only describe as an angel with a message. She walked past to tell us that she also got married on the stormiest day NZ has seen in years, when everything was flying and crashing and the skies were dark. Then she went on to tell us that she married her soulmate and best friend and that their life together is the most wonderful thing. That was 38 years ago apparently.
If you don’t know Elliot yet, I’d love for you to meet him! He, as well as my trusty sidekick and best friend Britney, are organising the next SupperClub with me! Join us at 6:45PM Thursday April 10th for a seven-course artisan raw meal, which will also include superfood cocktails.
Early bird tickets will be gone in 24 hours, so get yours here now>>
A thousand kisses from New Zealand,
