Cheese and pork pie wedding cake @ The West Country Cheese Co

Just a quick post having had such awesome feedback about our wedding cake. The West Country Cheese Co isn’t based on Birmingham (sadly) but can be found online.  As anyone that has ever spent more than thirty minutes in my company can testify, I love food. More specifically I love cheese. I don’t discriminate, I… Continue reading Cheese and pork pie wedding cake @ The West Country Cheese Co

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

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. The three course feast at Chez Mal starts with soup and access to the Chef’s… Continue reading Sunday lunch @ Chez Mal, Malmaison

Learn to game dining experience @ Grosvenor Casino 

As someone who chose to get married in Las Vegas, I am no stranger to casinos. After a few g&ts I become quite the Blackjack fiend and enjoy a flutter, but I couldn’t claim to be an expert. With that in mind, I was buzzing to visit the Grosvenor Casino on Broad Street recently for… Continue reading Learn to game dining experience @ Grosvenor Casino

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. Most recently I shared a new Barca adventure with my wonderful mum, Deborah,… Continue reading Chilled tapas and great wine @ Pinchos

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

Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

I've never been the biggest fan of Broad Street, and until my boyfriend and I became Unlimited members of Cineworld (at the Five Ways end of the street) a few years ago I'd not spent much time in that area of the city. In my mind the strip of bars and takeaways is more suited… Continue reading Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

Steak club @ Bar + Block

After a brilliant, but incredibly busy, weekend I was feeling a little bit sorry for myself at the start of last week. Don't get me wrong, most of it was self inflicted (my hen do was epic; I thought I was dying until Wednesday) but I was most definitely in need of a post-weekend pick… Continue reading Steak club @ Bar + Block
