Helen Hokin's October Picks

It's October at Foodtripper and we have extra helpings of food news, web TV and prizes from all over the world.
 
HOTEL NEWS
We follow recent landees Obama and Tom Cruise to the fabulous new Hotel Verta, billed as London's Gateway, at the London Heliport. Arriving by helicopter is de rigeur and so is dinner at Patrisey inside. Locally sourced ingredients - yes we got that already - but honey from Battersea? Who knew. Meanwhile over at The Sheraton, Heathrow there are whispers of a jetlag defying menu devised with sleep in mind by chef  Enzo Pepe, including oriental green fingers, asparagus spring rolls and a smokey garden salad that all sounds as light as the goose feather and down pillows that follow.
 
RESTAURANT RELAUNCH
News in this time from Glasgow where The Corinthian, the old city stalwart, has undergone a makeover. Craig Brown sits down to dinner in a clamshell canopy 'that allowed me to practice my James Bond villain impressions'.
 
COOKERY & WINE COURSES
Foodtrippers Preferred Partners have a whole harvest of hands on food and drink fun for autumn
How about this - learn to bake 'Real Bread' on a Scottish smallholding with Andrew Whitley- one of the original pioneers of the cause.
Singapore anyone? - Samia Ahad's school offers a programme of half-day classes in a mind-blowing range of Asian and European cuisines.
Fancy foraging? With the team of in-house artisans in a fully-equipped tithe barn on the Southrop Manor Estate, then collpase in the estate's own pub.
 
WIN
The Food Network South Beach Food and Wine Festival Cookbook, by Lee Shrager, is bursting with recipes from North America's finest chefs. And we have copies to give away. Just enter our simple quiz to be in the running. There's still time to catch 'Foodtripper Miami' the full-length show featuring the gargantuan menu at Danny De Vito's Chophouse, a peek behind the scenes at Azul, Florida's hottest dinner ticket oh and aCuban  picnic on the beach, on Travel Channel on Sky 251 all this month.
 
EVENTS - AVOCADO WEEK
The girl knows guacamole. Tommi Miers takes on Tom Parker Bowles in what promises to be the ultimate avocado cook off and tweetalong, not to mention culinary apex of Avocado Week which runs from from 25th to 31st October. Follow Tommi and Tom from 7pm on the 26th as they tweet and their way to triumph. There can only be one winner.
 
And speaking of avocados, they reportedly featured in at least two of the Chilean miners first meals home. And good on them.
 
Enjoy
