Food Pairing Dinner At Ibérica, Spinningfields

Iberica Spinningfields

I started my sister blog to avoid writing about beer to much over here. But every now and again I attend an event and can’t decide where best to put it. That happened recently when I was invited to a ‘Food Pairing Dinner’ at Ibérica, Spinningfields. Since it was hosted by Spanish brewery Casimiro I decided it was better suited over …

Winter Game Menu Preview @ Ibérica, Spinningfields, Manchester

Summer is my absolute favourite season. Mainly because I love the sun; eating and drinking outdoors just makes me happy and everywhere looks and feels better in sunshine. I can’t help getting grumpy when the days start getting colder and going dark earlier. The only thing stopping me coming down with a dose of S.A.D before January is autumn and winter food, game in particular. …

‘Great Chefs, Great Causes’ @ Ibérica, Spinningfields, Manchester

Iberica Spinningfields Manchester

It’s not everyday you get the chance to eat dishes from several of the world’s best chefs in the same place at the same time. But a few weeks ago I did exactly that after being invited to the press launch of ‘Great Chefs, Great Causes’ at Ibérica in Spinningfields. Of course, Albert Adrià and Joan Roca of El Celler de …

Tattu, Manchester – ‘Modern Chinese’, Spinningfields Style

Tattu Spinningfields (Manchester)

As we approached Tattu – a swanky new ‘Modern Chinese’ restaurant – I couldn’t help wondering if I was going to feel as out of place as I often do in Spinningfields. This feeling intensified when I spotted the bouncers on the door who then looked at me in a ‘You know this is Spinningfields not the Northern Quarter’ sort …

The Alchemist, Spinningfields Relaunches & DOUBLES In Size!

The Alchemist Spinningfields

I was surprised to receive an invite to the ‘reopening’ of The Alchemist in Spinningfields recently. I didn’t even know it had closed, much less that it was to reopen double its size and with a full food menu. Probably because Spinningfields isn’t an area I spend much time. I’d never eaten in The Alchemist before either, though I had been for cocktails …

Artisan Kitchen & Bar, Spinningfields, Manchester

It’s fair to say i’ve had up and down experiences with the LivingVentures restaurant group. Many years ago their first (I think) Manchester restaurant ‘Grill On The Alley’ was amongst my favourites in the city however I had a really bad visit there in 2011 and haven’t returned since. I was then underwhelmed by ‘Grill On New York Street’ and …

Back To Manchester House – 12 Course Tasting Menu & Aiden Byrne On Top Form!

It’s fair to say I was looking forward to Aiden Byrne arriving at Manchester House, I’d made a reservation at the earliest opportunity way back in March for the original opening night of August 8th. But building delays caused it to be pushed back a couple of times before finally opening on September 17th. Unfortunately due to other commitments I …

Manchester House Restaurant by Aiden Byrne – Special Preview

Manchester is at war! It is if you believe certain media anyway. It’s nothing to do with gangs, drugs or music though, not even United or City. This time it’s chefs; Simon Rogan Vs Aiden Byrne. Apparently they’re fighting each other in a race to be awarded a Michelin star. Simon has had a bit of a head start with …
