Cheese Fest Birmingham @ The Custard Factory

It will come as little surprise to literally anyone that knows me I attended Cheese Fest Birmingham last week. The two day festival of fromage took place at The Custard Factory in Digbeth, and offered cheese fans the opportunity to.. well, eat a shit load of cheese, basically. I joined my foodie pal Fay on… Continue reading Cheese Fest Birmingham @ The Custard Factory

I have a well documented love affair with Malmaison, and having discovered my foodie friend Fay (try saying that with your mouthful) hadn’t tried the delectable Sunday Brunch the place is so hyped for I immediately booked us a table.

Chilled tapas and great wine @ Pinchos

The winding streets of Barcelona are a joy for food lovers, with rustic cafes and bars offering Spanish snacks nestled in every nook and cranny. I truly love that city, having been many times both as a solo traveller and with friends.

A weekend of food and fun in Devon

I’ve just spent a lazy, long weekend in the deepest depths of the Devonshire countryside. My lovely friend, Bethan, sorted us out with a gorgeous big house (with an indoor pool no less) to use, and we spent the vast majority of the 3 days napping, eating fattening treats and quaffing copious amounts of Malbec.… Continue reading A weekend of food and fun in Devon
