Yorkshire Puddings – “Paulette’s Pantry” and the “Rise” of the “Food Expert?”

I'm writing this hot, and hot under the collar I might add, from a spot on Radio Sheffield discussing all things Yorkshire Pudding with the wonderful Paulette Edwards. I've written previously about the way "foodies" seem to want to bugger about with Yorkshire Puddings. From my very first ever post "To be, Or not to … Continue reading Yorkshire Puddings – “Paulette’s Pantry” and the “Rise” of the “Food Expert?”

Getting Cheeky with Pasta

Another lockdown. Another freezer full of goodies that you were saving to use in get togethers. Another round of pasta, bread making and fake bolognese sauce pictures appearing on Fakebook, Twatter and Insideousagram. I'd bought some lovely looking beasts' cheeks when I spied them at the market some weeks before lockdown and now I couldn't … Continue reading Getting Cheeky with Pasta

Review: Blacklock, Soho-They say you should have an AGA…. they’re right, but not in the way you think!

I think a doorway, especially a doorway and nothing but a doorway denotes mystery don't you? Make it a black doorway in a quiet (if that's not a misnomer) area of Soho, and Lemmy was straight into Poirot mode. Ze little grey cells, as well as in her case the gnashing teeth, were in full … Continue reading Review: Blacklock, Soho-They say you should have an AGA…. they’re right, but not in the way you think!

Review: Bonchurch Inn, Bonchurch, Isle of Wight.

Having just returned from an all too brief five day sojourn to our beloved Isle, I had to pop on an updated review of our favourite pub and restaurant, gorgeous location, gorgeous place and, especially, gorgeous people. It's in my newly created Lockdown Latin list of Italian restaurants I love and that remind me of … Continue reading Review: Bonchurch Inn, Bonchurch, Isle of Wight.

Does Pizza = Passion? It Does in My Book!

Definitely. This is a friend of mine who's the Pizzaiolo at a fantastic little restaurant in Minori called La Botte. He stands in front of a 450 degree Centigrade oven all day and night making pizze. In summer the outside temperature is over 35 degrees Centigrade. To do that you've got to have passion. I … Continue reading Does Pizza = Passion? It Does in My Book!

Review: Rennards, Scarborough – Because Sometimes You Just CAN’T Eat Them Out of the Paper

We all know that, in all honesty, the finest way to eat Fish'n'Chips is to eat them out of the paper (sadly not newspaper any more) and definitely not out of one of those poncy, square boxes with Fish'n'Chips written on the top (why write Fish'n'Chips on the top? I KNOW what I've bloody well … Continue reading Review: Rennards, Scarborough – Because Sometimes You Just CAN’T Eat Them Out of the Paper

Review: Seasons, Sao Rafael, Albufeira – A Classic Example of Never Judging a Book by its Cover.

Lemmy decided we needed a post Christmas break. What with all the feasting, fornicating and farting we pagans do around Yule, it's most welcome. A nice chillax, only a quarter moon so no worries about her dragging a mangled corpse into the hotel room in the middle of the night. Bliss. Portugal, its Algarve region … Continue reading Review: Seasons, Sao Rafael, Albufeira – A Classic Example of Never Judging a Book by its Cover.

Review: Apna Lahore – If Carlsberg did Asian Food….

Head up Abbeydale Road in Sheffield, around the old Picture Palace and blink at the wrong moment and you'll be past Apna Lahore and maybe non the wiser, and that would be a crying shame if you consider yourself a lover of true sub continent food. I'm on a mission here to change that. From … Continue reading Review: Apna Lahore – If Carlsberg did Asian Food….
