‘No Knives or Forks’ @ Camp and Furnace Summercamp Festival 2013

When I first heard about Summercamp festival run by Camp and Furnace in Liverpool I thought it looked brilliant, particularly the foodie dinners. I was intrigued by the ‘No Knives or Forks’ and ‘Tree Hugger’ (10 course vegetarian banquet) dinners and have wanted to eat Michelin starred chef Glynn Purnell’s food for a long time so this seemed the perfect opportunity. ...

A Chobani Inspired Dinner At Room Restaurant

A Chobani Inspired Dinner At Room Restaurant

Hands up if you’ve heard of Chobani? Don’t worry, I hadn’t either until last week when I was invited to a Chobani inspired dinner at Room Restaurant. It turns out they’re a brand of strained yoghurts. They’re new to the UK but have a pretty interesting background. I’m a big fan of Greek/strained yoghurt and use it all the time ... Read More »

Simon Rogan @ The French – ‘Dig The City’

Simon Rogan @ The French – ‘Dig The City’

Last week Manchester was transformed into a garden city with tress, flowers and even a forrest transported to the city centre streets. It was all in aid of ‘Dig The City’ festival, an event aimed at encouraging us to ‘grow our own’. With such an interest in food I’m probably their target audience but as somebody who’s barely managed to ... Read More »

‘Taste Cheshire’ Market @ Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet

‘Taste Cheshire’ Market @ Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet

It’s fair to say i’m not the biggest fan of shopping and particularly shopping centres. I’ve been known to have nightmares before an impending trip to the Trafford Centre and try to limit myself to just 1 visit per year at Christmas. So when I was invited to Cheshire Oaks by the people at McArthurGlen my initial reaction was to ... Read More »

‘Breaking Bad’ Night @ SoLita. Yeah Bitch!

‘Breaking Bad’ Night @ SoLita. Yeah Bitch!

You’ve probably noticed that I don’t need much of an excuse to visit SoLita. I’ve spent an unhealthy amount of time there recently so after my last visit self-imposed a ban in the hope of maybe fitting into my holiday clothes in a couple of weeks. I lasted 13 days. Actually impressive by recent standards and the ban wasn’t broken ... Read More »

3TwentyOne ‘Rib Tuesdays’, Deansgate, Manchester

3TwentyOne ‘Rib Tuesdays’, Deansgate, Manchester

I’ve been meaning to revisit 3TwentyOne for a while after really enjoying their preview night in May. Even more so after the launch of their great offer ‘Rib Tuesdays’ but what finally made it happen was hearing they have an outdoor terrace which I didn’t know about. This past Tuesday the weather was absolutely glorious in Manchester and I couldn’t ... Read More »

Yo! Sushi Blue Mondays, Selfridges, Trafford Centre

Yo! Sushi Blue Mondays, Selfridges, Trafford Centre

I’ve never been particularly fond of chain restaurants but there are a couple I’ll tolerate if there’s nothing better available. Until recently it was a short list: basically just Nandos & occasionally Wagamama! It’s a long time since I’ve eaten at Yo! Sushi as I wasn’t impressed with the quality previously but after visiting last month when I kind of ... Read More »
