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:

Hanoi Coffee Company, Bristol

Summer Rolls at Hanoi Coffee Company in Bristol, Gingey Bites

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!  


Travel Bites: A Weekend in North Devon

Devon brings back childhood memories for me - holidays as a family, staying in caravans and self catering cottages all along the coast. Although I’ve been a few times as an adult, it must be a few years since I visited. So when, with my Great Food Club hat on, I was invited to go and stay at The George Inn in Braunton, North Devon, I jumped at the chance.


Review: Riverford Organic Recipe Box

We tried a Riverford Organic recipe box recently – specifically the 'quick recipe' box for two. I've tried most of the recipe / food delivery boxes now and you can see several of them right here on the blog. I have to say, this one has been by far my favourite for both quality of taste and the ease of the recipes.


#iamajam Strawberry & Prosecco Jam

I'd never made jam before last week. My other half has the sweetest tooth known to man and eats endless amounts of the stuff so when Tate & Lyle asked me to join their #iamajam blogger campaign, it seemed like a good opportunity to finally give it a go.

Review: Brunch at Pieminister, Bristol

You most likely know if you read my blog often that I'm no good at breakfast. It stems from the fact that I'm just not a morning person. Brunch though, now that's something I can get my head around.  So when I was recently invited to try the new brunch menu at one of my favourite Bristol institutions, Pieminster I naturally jumped at the chance. PIE FOR BREAKFAST YOU ASK? YUP…

Quick Trip: Bertinet Bakery, Bath

For anyone visiting Bath with a sweet tooth, first stop has to be the small but perfectly formed Bertinet Bakery.

You might recognise the name; it belongs to French chef and baker Richard Bertinet. He's pretty well known and a very good baker with a long list of accolades behind him. Along with his wife, he moved to Bath around 12 years ago and opened a cookery school and a bakery in the city and now, another - this painfully cute bakery and shop on New Bond Street Place.
