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…

CAPSICANA COOK SAUCES – REVIEW

CAPSICANA COOK SAUCES – REVIEW

I am one who loves added a burst of flavour to my food. I guess my influences have come from the food I was brought up with and the places I have travelled to. From classical French, to prickly North African, and although I have no yet been the Far East. The best ways to make these dishes stand out, in my eyes, is to cook everything from scratch! However there are some nights, getting in when I am just not feeling it. This is where cook sauces come in….

Turning themselves into a chain already, and now owning 4 premises, 2 being in head offices of fashion moguls.  I mean if that is not impressive for the first year I do not know what is. I hope they have some confetti canons ready!…
