On a cold autumnal evening I was invited to the new Uzbeki restaurant Samarkand in Fitzrovia for a Silk Road Masterclass in vodka and cocktail tasting. Mixology meets Marco Polo. Camel caravans on the windswept plains. And a bunch of bloggers on a mission. How could I ever refuse?
Mr and Mrs Twit, Roald Dahl’s most despicable duo were inviting guests to join them in a gruesome and immersive dining experience in London this year. And there was no way this Pixie was going to pass on an invitation to the worst dinner party in the world to celebrate the renewing of their vows.
