The making of a great compilation tape…is hard to do and takes ages longer than it might seem. You gotta kick off with a killer, to grab attention. Then you got to take it up a notch, but you don’t wanna blow your wad, so then you got to cool it off a notch. There are a lot of rules. – Rob (John Cusack), High Fidelity Ahhh, the mixtape. Remember, guys? When you used to sit in front of your boombox with your finger on the “rec” button filling tapes with songs from the radio and basically ending up with an hour’s worth of half songs and three versions of “My Heart Will Go On” differing only in the lukewarm funnies the DJ would…

Head Chef Scrapbook: Nutritional Menu

Posted on February 27, 2014

We decided to embrace the Year of the Horse and smash our way into 2014 with a fucking amazing new Nutritional Menu. BBRRRAAAPPP!!!! Please find below some notes from our Head Chef’s journal on the development of our latest specials……. When Julian and Lauren announced the Nutritional Menu we discussed general themes, genres, cuisines andnutrition. At M1lk we try to offer some thing special, accessible, interesting but overall tasty. The challenge was to come up with something delicious but healthy, packed with vibrant, intesnse flavours withouth the traditional (less healthy) things that carry them: animal fats, sugars, salts…Hence the name ALL KILLER NO FILLER. 1. Those that like ramen/noodle broths will know of the hypnotic depths of the dashi based broth, the heart of all Japanese…

`Bao blog

Good news is BAO is coming to M1lk... Bad news is you'll have to wait until February.... With this in mind Jules and I hopped on down to Night Tales with our Head Chef Stuart to see how much Braised Pork Belly Bao three humans could possibly consume in one evening. Apparently quite a lot... It was bloody delicious. One of everything times about 20. Washed down with a few Warm Ciders and Bourbon we ended the evening watching a man squeeze himself through a christmas netting machine and try to sell himself for a fiver. Yes it was weird....
Bao will be landing at M1LK on 6th and 7th Feb.  Keep an eye on our blog and twitter for updates.
