Rib Fest Finale: Home Team BBQ at The Blues Kitchen Brixton

Damn. That was delicious! Deep flavour from the Deep South came to London for the finale of The Blues Kitchen Brixton’s Rib Fest with a sold out, one night only feast of epic proportion. In town from the States to man the grill were the award-winning keepers of the low and slow flame: Home Team BBQ. I was mightily glad to have managed to slide in for a taste of the action and reckon I enjoyed some of the best BBQ I’ve had since October 2015 when I had a chance to visit the Home Team fellas on their own turf of Charleston, South Carolina.

L&Q Round Table: Is Shared Ownership a Viable Option?

Is shared ownership ideal or the perfect solution for anyone’s housing needs? No. But neither is the London housing market ideal, and everybody’s got a different story when it comes to making a living and finding a home.
