Hey Bristol! Great Food Club has arrived.

For the last couple of months you've probably seen me talking a lot about Great Food Club on social media. That's because I recently became their Bristol & Bath editor and am really excited about bringing it to this part of the world. 

Review: El Borracho Del Oro, Birmingham.

It’s always hard choosing somewhere to eat when you’re away but it’s a task I take real pleasure in. I peruse blogs, trip advisor and ask twitter and usually, its twitter which gives me the answer, or at least a final shortlist. I discovered El Borracho Del Oro in Edgbaston this way when I was looking for somewhere to eat on a recent trip to Birmingham.

Roasted Vegetable & Herby Garden Arrabbiata Pasta Sauce

There's something so good about homemade tomato sauce. It's so versatile but I think the best way to eat it is with pasta. However, it can be expensive and time consuming though so it's no wonder that most of us end up using tinned tomatoes. 

We're housesitting at the moment and in the garden here there are three big tomato plants which are still fruiting! Last week I gathered up this motley collection some of which was on the turn and decided to put the effort in and make some tomato sauce. Such a great way of utilising a glut of toms!

My September Discoveries

I have to say it's been a busy old month, I almost ran out of time for this; the second in my new discoveries series! So, without further ado, and in no particular order, here are the new things I've been loving this month:

Moving house & Adventures Ahoy!

A little under two weeks ago we packed up our flat, put all of our worldly goods into storage and got ready for the next chapter of our lives. For the next month we're house sitting and couch surfing with friends. Then, once October 16th rolls around we'll be jumping on a big plane and flying off on a rather exciting adventure!
