Rick Stein’s, The Seafood Restaurant

A very late post about where we ate on our road trip last summer!!  One of the main reasons we choose Padstow as our location in Cornwall was because of Rick Steins The Seafood Restaurant. I do like Rick and his fishy dishes and I thought I’d seize this opportunity to go there! Unfortunately we…

Lake of Menteith

The day after boxing day we took Mum and Dad out for a little drive.  We headed out of Edinburgh, across the Forth Road Bridge and followed the river all the way to Stirling, then up on towards Callender and ended up at the Lake of Menteith We decided to have a spot of lunch…

We Heart Cake

Oh yes we do. I have often moaned about the lack of cake shops in Stirling (where I work).  It has its fair share of Greggs etc, but not a real proper homemade cake shop, and sometimes you just need big wack of something tasty and homemade. It would now seem my cake prayers have…

Eat Street

During the summer I managed to be down in London a couple of times and was able to treat myself to the delights of Eat Street, a Street Food initiative run by Petra Barran and based at Kings Boulevard, up beside Kings Cross Station The principle is simple every day a collection (usually between 3…

Cake in the Country

Today myself and seven other cake ladies ventured out of Edinburgh for the first Edinburgh Cake Ladies Road Trip to Cammerlaws Farm for fellow cake lady Pam and her mum’s first ‘pop up’ Afternoon Tea.

Burger Heaven

After a few months of trying, I eventually secured 2 tickets to Burgher Burger 7. The patience of waiting for the buying instructions to appear on their Facebook page paid off – I secured them in under 3 minutes! Which was great as they were sold out in about 3 minutes! On Monday night we…

Bath

A couple of weeks ago we went on a bit of a tour of the South Coast of England, going to places we have fancied checking out but could never find the excuse to go there! This time we had one – Olympic Sailing in Weymouth! The first stop on our tour was the Spa…

Porto and Fi

Yesterday morning after a little incident in the kitchen, rendering it unusable, we were stuck with what to do about breakfast.  As we work in Stirling and have to leave reasonably early there is little open, except for – the Brewers Fayre?! Not really wanting to go down this route I trawled the web looking…

Birthday Dinner Surprise

A couple of Saturdays ago it was my birthday, and I was treated to a lovely day of theatre and cake.  The final surprise was dinner at Restaurant Mark Greenaway at No.12 Picardy Place.  I have wanted to go here for a while after reading many a review from other Edinburgh Foodies and the Cake…

My First Supper Club

Friday night finally arrived, the long wait was over.  Six months ago my friend Rebecca and I decided we had to go to a supper club, though naturally we didn’t do anything about it until about a month ago, when Charlie and Evelyn’s Table announced they were going to be back in the kitchen over…
