Logos a Gogo

What do you think of my new logo? Pretty adorable, eh? Well I can't take all the credit for this gorgeous creation...I was lucky enough to get a little help. This contributor wishes to remain silent, so I should respect his privacy, but should you wish to contact him for any freelance graphic design gig, I can put you in touch!  

I haven't been outside, visiting, touring and fulfilling my zesty duties for a really long time, spending most of my precious hours finishing and polishing off my dissertation. So bear with me for a moment. But I've finished it, I really have! Woop woop hooray hooray! I am officially no longer a student and while it hasn't quite sunk in yet, I believe I've been hit with occasional waves of freaking out...or how do you say, unemployment anxiety?

Well, I guess I've also been suffering from a mental breakdown these past couple days, what with all the cabin fever and the staring at a computer screen like a lobotomized monkey all day long, for weeks and weeks at a time.

So I thought I'd let a bit loose and just tell you about this one teeny tiny zesty gem that I've been hiding from you ever since I discovered it. You see, I have a weakness for cinnamon. You name it, cinnamon toast crunch cereal, cinnamon buns form cinnabun (yeah so? I just said weakness...this is me confessing, ok?), cinnamon butter, cinnamon alone, cinnamon apples, Big Red cinnamon chewing gum. I could go on. But I won't. And for anyone else who has a weakness for cinnamon, you will understand why I have kept this secret from you, when you bite into this magical cinnamon sensation from Gail's Bakery on Portobello Road. I swear to you, this is the best cinnamon roll I've ever bit into. It has crunch, it has moist (gross, hate that word), it has spice, it has sweeetness and it has everything of the magic a cinnamon roll: it has about a gizzillion calories. Well, this isn't Starbucks, so no need to spoil your coffee/sweet break with a calorie count. So head over there on your next Portobello trip and enjoy a bunch more delicious treats at Gail's and grab a cappucino with it so you can dunk it in French-style. Ohlala!

Gail's Bakery, Portobello Road


  1. Oh what a cheeky discovery and conveniently just seconds from our office...

  2. That's fantastic! And yes those cinnamon rolls are a great excuse to leave the office. Hope all is well, Philippe!

  3. I can't take it anymore. Need Cinnamon. I'm going to Gail's tomorrow. That's Portobello Gail's rather than NY Gail's ...

  4. Oh a trip to Gails in NY would be most needed right now..I wish we had a Gail equivalent here in London. Have you heard of anyone who teaches cooking in London btw? Would be great to find a blog about that too...
