Pintura Basque Kitchen Summer Menu Launch*

Pintura is one of those restaurants that has always been on my ‘to visit’ list yet I’ve just never got round to it. I’m a huge fan of Cielo Blanco (read my review here), one of six other restaurants owned by the same company. So when I was invited to take Pintura’s  Summer Menu for […]

Authentic Mexican street food at Cielo Blanco, Leeds

When it comes to Mexican food, I’m a self confessed addict. Nachos are my holy grail and I feel like every food ever could benefit from added Guacamole! It took longer than I would like to admit for me to visit Cielo Blanco but once I’d tried it, I’d pretty much decided to set up […]

Eat, Drink, Disco at Archie’s for Brunch

Eat, Drink, Disco seems to be the mantra at Archie’s, seen as though they have the words lit up as giant marquee letters in the window (not to mention the giant glitter ball inside).

Lady Betty’s Afternoon Tea

When it comes to afternoon tea, I’d consider myself quite the connoisseur, and by that I mean I blooming love scones and tiny sandwiches! Betty’s is the ultimate northern tearoom (like literally, there is nothing that compares to the hun that is Betty*) that also make incred brunches = perfection much? Oh, and blogger cliche alert […]

A New Way of Cooking with Chocolate…

With a new Hotel Chocolat cookbook on the way, a night of cocktails, catch ups and chocolate inspired dishes were on the menu for Emily (the gorgeous Auburnantics) and I.
