Something a Bit Special #15 The Locally Sourced Breakfast Sandwich

Being a true Cheltenham girl, I love a day out at the horseracing, starting with a hearty breakfast with family and friends. For The Festival in March, my guests had asked for a breakfast sandwich (because I host the sort of people who know what they want and aren’t afraid to tell me), so I set about sourcing the very best ingredients I could find – and not just from anywhere, I wanted to support local people and producers and see what our county (and just a bit further afield) could offer.

The Bestest #4 What Makes a Good Eatery

As a food blogger I’m very aware that the things I really like and appreciate may not be what other people are looking for in a meal out. However, I am a firm believer that food is to be enjoyed and so if you’re spending your well-earned money on eating out, the whole experience should be fantastic (no matter how little or how much you’re spending).

BeyoncĂ© sang about carrying hot sauce in her bag and believe you me, after trying Tubby Tom’s sauces and seasonings, you’ll be wanting to heed her advice.

The Bestest #3 Places to go for Date Night

Date night. This is a relatively new concept. In the olden days we used to do nice things with our loved one from time to time, but now, we have such busy lives that we have to schedule in a night to be romantic. How unromantic! Anyhow, it seems everyone is doing it, so I’m here to help out with some foodie suggestions for your next date night - because those who eat together, stay together.
