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. If you know me, you’ll know I like my steak rare (or blue if I know the restaurant) so I couldn’t blooming wait to check out the […]

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 […]

Homage2Fromage | The Cheese Cafe

If you just read the words cheese cafe and got very excited, then you came to the right place. Homage2Fromage is a whole restaurant dedicated to the delights of cheese (uhhh YUM) and frankly I’m shocked that it’s taken me this long to visit. But the wait was worth it…

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.
