It’s time for a recipe round-up once more! Today, we’re looking at cherry tomatoes. I have a real love-hate relationship with them: I can’t stand raw tomatoes at all, but when these are cooked, they often lend just what is needed to the dish. Here’s 10 recipes using them for you to try!
Something a little different this week: a review of a television show, which you can watch right now on Netflix. Chef’s Table: France is a series looking at some of the most famous and esteemed chefs in France, exploring their methods and the dishes that made them well-known. It starts with a feature on Alain Passard, who is head chef and owner at L’Arpege in Paris.
It’s time for another of our travel guides – this time based in Birmingham! I regularly go out there for fashion shows (or did until the Clothes Show shut its doors), and this year managed to stay on a little longer to visit some attractions around the area. This is by no means a comprehensive rundown of Birmingham’s vegetarian food and I would love to go back to explore some more – if I do, this guide will be updated. For now, let’s take a look at my travels!
We don’t normally do reviews for places that don’t serve burgers, but Wahaca definitely deserves a nod. It’s one of our go-to places to eat when we’re out at Bluewater or even in London, especially if we happen to be by the Southbank. So, this week I’m reviewing Wahaca, along with a few photos from our last visit!
And we’re back with another veggie feast – this time from our New Year celebrations! Just as with the Christmas food, we have a set schedule for our meals at this time of year. On New Year’s Eve we have a massive buffet with finger food to enjoy. Then on New Year’s Day we sit down to a two-course meal with starters and mains. Throw in copious amounts of champagne and other celebratory drinks and it’s a party!
This week I’m giving a bit of a different review than normal – it’s all about the Riverford vegetable box service, which brings farm-fresh food straight to your door. They also deliver fruit, eggs, and meat if you want it, though we stick with the veggies. We’ve been trying this delivery box for around a month, which we figured is enough time to give it a review!
A little while ago I told you all about the veggie ebook we have up for sale on Fiverr. ‘Going Veggie’ is a handy short guide on how to go vegetarian for beginners, with some tips which might be handy for those who have been veggie for a while too.
Hopefully by now you’ve seen our Foodies Festival highlights post from earlier this week! As promised, today we’re bringing you a more in-depth look at the show and the brands that we encountered there. First off, let’s start by saying that we both loved walking around the event and speaking to all of the new brands. Everyone we spoke to was lovely and there were a lot of fantastic foods to sample.
This week we’re running a competition to give away tickets to Foodies Festival! This food-centric event is taking place on the 18th – 20th November, and we have an amazing 5 pairs of tickets to hand out. We will be there too and can’t wait to bring 10 of you along with us!
