Sweet L.A: Exclusive Californian-Inspired Recipe By The Social Kitchen

One of our key trends this summer is ‘Sweet LA’ – think unvarnished woods, tan leathers and a monochrome base, that combine to create a timelessly cool, open-plan Californian look. To celebrate this must-have style, as well as the upcoming Royal Wedding, the Social Kitchen have rustled up a favourite dish of Los Angeles-born Meghan Markle’s, fish tacos, so you can cheers to the royal couple with an All-American party.
