Friday night supper @ Tom’s Kitchen

Like most food bloggers I have an increasingly long list of restaurants, cafes and bars I'd like to visit. My list has never had less than 20 places (in Birmingham alone) on it at one time because for every one I manage to try I find a new one to add. One of the longstanding… Continue reading Friday night supper @ Tom’s Kitchen

Elegant pub grub @ The White Swan, Edgbaston

I must confess I don't visit Edgbaston half as much as I should, a realisation I had confirmed during a recent visit to The White Swan, set just off Harborne Road. An upmarket pub that's brimming with character, The White Swan manages to be both stylish and homely, thanks in part to the extensive refurbishment… Continue reading Elegant pub grub @ The White Swan, Edgbaston

Sunday lunch @ Chez Mal, Malmaison 

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.

Cocktails and pampering @ Malmaison

Vietnamese street food @ Pho

I've written before about my love affair with Pho - check it out - located in the food court area of Grand Central. Once you get over the fact that there's always a queue (and in winter it's ruddy freezing) it's a great spot for a steaming bowl of noodle soup or one of the other Vietnamese inspired… Continue reading Vietnamese street food @ Pho

Burrito bowls @ Habaneros Mexican Street Food

Last week I had a lunch in the park that could only be described as life changing. As anyone who knows me well will testify, I am absolutely in love with all things burrito and I'm always looking for somewhere that I haven't tried for my next fix. Last week I finally paid a visit… Continue reading Burrito bowls @ Habaneros Mexican Street Food

Beef and Malbec Masterclass @ Gaucho 

There are very few things in life I love more than steak and red wine (sorry Ian) so I was beyond excited to be invited to attend the Beef and Malbec Masterclass at Gaucho this week.  An exclusive event for press and foodie bloggers, the intimate evening presented a wonderful opportunity to meet Gaucho’s Master… Continue reading Beef and Malbec Masterclass @ Gaucho
