The Future of Food: thinking about sustainability

How much do you think about the future when picking out your next meal? Sustainability is a hot topic at the moment (rightly so – as we try to make some headway into fixing some of the mistakes of the past and the impact we have had on this planet) but how much does it…

Glitch Eatery Launch!

Glitch has always been much more than a hair salon: art gallery, music venue, plant shop and kitchen! The multi-concept store is soon to have a little bit of a makeover though to launch their new eatery, focused on the “Bunwich” – where they are mixing up fashion and food even more.  “What is a bunwich?”…

FareShare – Green Food Tour

There are times when I have to sit and reflect on how lucky I am. Firstly, I was born in the best city full of the dreamiest people… And more seriously, I am fortunate enough to have never worried about going hungry – something I so often take for granted. Over the last few weeks I…

Hotel du Vin Bristol – new Prix Fixe menu

There are some people in your life that particularly deserved to be spoilt. Luckily I got to spoil just that person recently when I took my friend Gemma to the delightful Hotel du Vin Bristol. I was kindly invited to visit as they launched their new Prix Fixe menu. Created by their Head Chef Marcus…

Espensen Spirit: learning to infuse some tasty gin

I recently had the absolute pleasure of attending a gin/vodka infusion workshop at the beautiful Bristol Spirit. Having purchased a workshop as a present to my mum last year (where they caused a raucous but had the BEST time) I was jealous and could not wait to try it out for myself. Who are they?…

Heartfelt Vintage – Vegan afternoon tea

I use the words fabulous and fab A LOT. Probably (definitely) too much… But there are some experiences that warrant the use of the word. Having spent a truly scrumptious and indulgent afternoon in the delightful surroundings of Heartfelt Vintage, I have found said fabulous experience! Surrounded by their beautiful collection of vintage fashion, bridal wear…

Thali: Alternative Festive Feast

Christmas dinner is a pretty big deal – I probably get far too excited about it if I am honest. It’s my absolute favourite meal of the year, right from the ribs starter (mother goose is threatening to remove this tradition so I’m continuously campaigning to keep it) heaps of roast potatoes, to the post…

Suncraft: Tasty food for the soul

As the weather turns grizzly, part of you may be craving all the stodge (if you’re like me, it will be mostly potato based) but your body is likely in most need of all the healthy stuff to help your body ward off the inevitable lurgy trying to attack from every corner. A few years…

A Fair Shot: make your office lunch more exciting

Most of us have been there…the  dreaded meeting that runs over lunchtime. There are promises of food (unless your company is mean!), but the usual affair of sad sandwiches and trays of crisps is little in the way of compensation for spending your lunch hour locked in a meeting room. A Fair Shot catering are…

1766 Bar and Kitchen

If there is one thing that will get me out and about on a rainy day, it’s the promise of scrummy food! A few weeks ago I ventured out on a grizzly Saturday to check out what’s been going on behind the scaffolding in the newly refurbished Bristol Old Vic. And it was worth getting…
