What's better than a lovely, flakey pastry with a proper cup of coffee in the morning? Well how about one given a bit of a spin by three top food writers and cooks?

That's the deal at Caravan Fitzrovia which has just kicked off a three month pastry push. Their first team-up is with blogger and cookbook author Ed Smith, aka Rocket & Squash whose Pain au ‘Nduja - a pain au chocolat made from ‘Nduja salami, honey, walnuts and sage - is now on sale.

Next month, it'll be the turn of food presenter John Gregory Smith whose Middle East-inspired pastry combines pistachio frangipane, pomegranate seeds and a rose pomegranate glaze. His chosen charity is The World Food Programme.
