Bao Buns at Yuu Kitchen, London*

Whenever I’m dining out (a.k.a always, ‘cause have you tried my cooking??) I try to visit somewhere new and, ideally, independent. So with an open invite to the newly opened Yuu Kitchen, I grabbed my gal Karis from Shy, Strange, Manic and headed to check it out. A nosey at the menu was enough to get […]

Feeling lucky at Man’s Market, Leeds

After five years in Leeds, I still haven’t eaten everywhere. The other half and I could happily eat out every night of the week, and with new eateries popping up all the time, there’s always somewhere new to try. The latest on the hit list? A concept Chinese restaurant that has got me genuinely excited. […]

Steak School with Blackhouse, Leeds*

I adore Leeds for plenty of reasons, but one big reason is the food. From amazing brunch spots to incredible concept restaurants, there’s plenty of instagrammable plates to go around.

I was joined by some of […]

That’s it, Halloween is out of the way, we can officially start talking about Christmas. And if you’re about to pipe up and try to tell me to wait until after bonfire night, I’m afraid I won’t be able to hear you over the sound of me singing Christmas carols at the top of my […]

Brunch dates at Love Rouge

I’m forever on the hunt for cute spots to while away the weekday mornings with my macbook and an iced latte or spend lazy sundays with my other half or catching up with my gal squad. If you ever need to find me, just look for good wifi and great Eggs Benedict. As it turns out, […]

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 […]

I’ve heard lots of rave reviews about Ox Pasture Hall, a luxury hotel in Scarborough, and was invited to come check out what the fuss was about… Spoiler […]

Press for Champagne at Bob Bob Ricard

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my twenties, it’s that I absolutely, unequivocally NEED a press for champagne button. So I went in search of one and discovered my spiritual home. Oh, and the foods pretty good too…
