The Bradgate, Newtown Linford

A few weeks ago, I was invited to dine at The Bradgate, a recently refurbished Everard's pub in the pretty village of Newtown Linford. I was joined by local bloggers Emily and Tim for a very enjoyable evening trying out the new winter menu whilst catching up with one of the owners David to find out what they've been up to and what they have planned for the future.

Scott's Wine Bar, Quorn

Slapped wrist for not posting this sooner - Scott's is a rather lovely new wine bar in the ever trendy Quorn. Well I say new - they've been open for several months now!

A Festive Gingey Gift Guide

This is a bit late this year and its not like me to be so behind. I know many of you are probably super organised and already have your Christmas shopping done and dusted but due to big changes in my life of late, I've not even started mine! EEEEK! 

So... for those of you who are as disorganised as me, here are my top picks for foodie festive gifts this year. If nothing here tickles your fancy, why not take a peek back at my top picks of years gone by too?

Review: The Mountsorrel .. in... Mountsorrel

The Mountsorrel guesthouse in .. you guessed it.. Mountsorrel has always looked nice from the outside. Having lived in the village for the past 2 and 1/2 year, the place catches your eye especially in the summer when the front is alive with hundreds of hanging baskets full of colourful flowers. 

Recently they opened their restaurant to the public (previously it was only available for residents) and with head chef Nicola Albiniano in the kitchen, they should do very well. I've eaten Nicola's food at local places The Swan Inn and Pilings Lock and I knew the standard would be high. So last Tuesday with Mummy Bites in tow, I headed over there for dinner.

Gooey Baked Camembert

I think sometimes bloggers assume they should be posting complicated recipes with lots of ingredients and many stages but actually, we all need inspiration and so, sometimes the quick & easy recipes are just as important.

This is an old favourite of mine and something I hadn't eaten for ages. Having scoffed it again recently and realising just how much I love it, I just had to recreate it at home. And now I'm sharing these gooey cheese porn pictures with you. Perfect timing as we head into the cold and dark nights and Christmas approaches.
