As most things I’m quite accustomed too these day’s it was a long old struggle conditioning my sensitive tastebuds to appreciate the grown up flavours from red wine to olives, beer, gin and now coffee.

Street Food Circus Review 2016 – Sophia Gardens – Cardiff

I was a big fan of last year’s inaugural Street Food Circus pop up in Cardiff city centre and when I heard rumours of an even bigger shindig at Sophia Garden’s I was even more excited. I’d been to a few food fests this year or festivals with a bit a food section but I […]

Hangfire Smokehouse Southern Kitchen review

Hangfire smokehouse chicken , waffles and ribs

I don’t know what took me so long to make a booking after hearing the best BBQ food duo this side of the Atlantic were opening shop in the newly restored pump house in none other than Barybados. Many a summer I spent heading down to windswept promenade of the Island that isn’t actually an […]
