The Curtain Hotel Review – Shoreditch, London

The Curtain Hotel Rooftop Pool - Shoreditch, London

The last few times I’ve been to London, I always seem to be drawn to Shoreditch although I’ve never actually stayed the night there. We were invited to an event with Sainsburys as part of their Taste Maker project recently, which happened to be taking place in Shoreditch. So we thought we would make a […]

I recently got chosen to name a cocktail on the new Admiral St David bar and restaurant at Voco St David’s in Cardiff Bay. I was given the ingredients and had to choose the name on Facebook, with their favourite being selected and being put on the menu. I also got to sample the new […]

Being obsessed with Japan and dreaming of a trip there in the near future, we thought we would have a taste of Japan on home turf for our trip to London last weekend. We decided to book a night at Nobu Hotel in Shoreditch. If you’re not familiar with Nobu, they started life as a […]

Halen Mon Salt launch of book, gin and Tide restaurant

Me sampling the new Jin Mor at Halen Mon

We recently got an invite to Wales most famous salt brand Halen Mon for the launch of not one but three new ventures at the Coastal HQ along Anglesey’s treasured Menai Straights. Normally I would have questioned a 10 hour round trip for a launch event but this was no normal launch party. Having used […]

Human Food Nutrition Bar Review

I recently got sent a sample box of bars from Human Food to review. I’d not heard of them previously but was keen to see what they did after learning they hailed from the seaside town of Tenby in West Wales. I’ve tried my fair share of energy / protein / meal replacement bars over […]

The Dead Canary Gin Dinner Review in Cardiff

Negroni at The Dead Canary Cardiff

We were recently invited to the first in a series of gin dinners at Deaths and Entrances, the new bar within The Dead Canary and run by the same team. The new bar opened a few months back and I loved the new flavour driven cocktail menu on the launch weekend. The gin dinner was […]

Ember by John Cook Review at Milk & Sugar – Yr Hen Lyfrgell

55 day aged beef from Cardiff Butcher at Ember

I was sat in a pub in pub in the Pembrokeshire Countryside a few weeks back, sipping on a pint of local ale whilst catching up on some socials. We’d been busy walking around Cardigan all day, then me foolishly braving the March Welsh sea by taking a plunge. I noticed that Milk & Sugar […]

Höst Copenhagen Restaurant Review

Scallop dish at Host Copenhagen

Apart from Warpigs, we had been living off market food and just grabbing a bite to eat as and when we could since landing in Copenhagen, but I wanted to at least have one experience of Nordic cooking on our 3 day trip. After a bit of googling and a recommendation from a friend we […]

Warpigs BBQ and Brewpub Review – Copenhagen

Warpigs bbq side dishes Copenhagen

I saw Warpigs on a Netflix food show, starring American hip hop star Action Bronson not too long ago and when we booked a trip to Copenhagen I put it on my hit-list of places to visit. I didn’t realise at the time that the venue was a collaboration between one of my favourite Danish […]
