A barbecue with a difference…

I’m sure it’s not just my friends and I who have been using the recent sunny spell as an excuse to have as many barbecues as possible. And I’m sure it’s not just my friends and I who are getting a little bored of barbecueing the same things, week in, week out. Subscribe to Bristol […]

Local Challenge: Papadeli

Sorry it’s been a while since the last post – the “real job” is taking up a lot of time! A while back, we posted details of our “Local Challenge” – our challenge to local shops and delis to provide us with a recipe using only ingredients that you could buy from them. We would […]

Friday night signalled the welcomed end to a busy week, and was even more eagerly awaited as we’d managed to book ourselves two places to dine with the Secret Service Supper Club. The SSSC is the brainchild of Louise Barnard, a local Cordon Bleu-trained chef and the owner […]

Despite somewhat freezing weather, the area around the Glassboat Restaurant on Welshback was, for an afternoon, transformed into a buzzing, lively market full of stalls showing off some of the best artisan cheeses from local suppliers.

2nd Bristol Winter Cider Festival – Review

Friday and Saturday played host to Bristol’s 2nd Winter Cider Festival, organised by CiderFestivals.co.uk. We paid […]
