WINETASTING AT VEENO *

WINETASTING AT VEENO *

We had the pleasure of visiting Veeno, a quaint little Italian café tucked away on a back street in Manchester. The brand started 3 years ago with two Italian guys’ passion for Spuntini* and wine, and noticed that there was nowhere in Manchester offering the same thing. Veeno now has 14 stores across the UK, with a new one opening in Kingston upon Thames. The café offers a variety of wine, prosecco, beer, small nibbles and light bites. They have various wine tasting packages perfect for meeting up with friends…

#BESTSUMMEREVER WITH THAIKHUN – MANCHESTER – SPINNINGFIELDS *

Thai has always been one of my favourite foods. I love the range of flavours involved, the creaminess and the coconut. So, last week  I was in my element when I was invited to Thaikhun for a taste of the exotic. It is a restaurant I have always wanted to dine in as I spend a lot of time in Spinningfields, however, have not yet had the chance. The decor is so aesthetically pleasing, it draws you in immediately and I couldn’t wait to sit in the TukTuk. We were…

PIMP UP YOUR PASTA WITH DELL UGO *

PIMP UP YOUR PASTA WITH DELL UGO *

Whilst studying at university there was one staple meal that I was in love with. Tortellini, creme fraiche and cheese. Oh yes I was the epitome of healthy! It is a love that stemmed from childhood, when I was less experimental with food and loved my stuffed pasta with just plain butter. Gross right. Yet thoroughly enjoyable. That is because you get the delicious filling that provides all the flavour you need. As of late, I have not divulged in my favourite pas time food, or really pasta for that…

GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

As I have been smashing the gym recently, I have forever been seeking some quick, tasty, healthy meals to cook up once I get home. I have forced myself to the gym in the morning before work, meaning I can get home, cook and actually relax in an evening. However I don’t want to use all that time I’ve freed up cooking. I love cooking but so love relaxing too. When I get Thai or Chinese I love having chicken with cashews, so thought I could probably make something pretty…
