Pizza Making With Leeds Cookery School And Why They Can’t be Topped

Pizza Making With Leeds Cookery School And Why They Can’t be …

Leeds
I'd wanted to take a cooking class with Leeds Cookery School for a long time, ever since I found out about them, but hadn't quite gotten around to it. So when I was offered the chance to take part in their Pizza and Prosecco Cocktails class in return for a blog post I was ridiculously excited! Not was the class amazing, but they play a key role in the local community and I'm all for that. So let me tell you a little about Leeds Cookery School, their location and the Pizza and Prosecco Cocktails class that I took part in.
Celebrating Independent Shops at Leeds Corn Exchange

Celebrating Independent Shops at Leeds Corn Exchange

Leeds
Supporting local businesses is high on my list of values. When I’m travelling I’ll seek out family run restaurants, eat local produce and drink the local wine. So when I’m at home, this shouldn’t and doesn't change. So when I was invited to visit Leeds Corn Exchange to celebrate Independents’ Day I felt pretty honoured! It would be the perfect opportunity to discover some new local businesses, engage with the people behind them and hopefully inspire you to discover them for yourselves!

Taste Meson: A Shining Example of Gran Canarian Cuisine

Taste Meson: A Shining Example of Gran Canarian Cuisine

Gran Canaria
Thank goodness we walked past Taste Meson on a walk along the seafront in our nearest town! Overlooking the bay in the centre of Arguineguin, Taste Meson is a small plate restaurant designed to showcase local produce. It’s more of a fine dining style of eating than the tapas style that you might expect from a small plate restaurant in this part of the world, but the atmosphere is definitely holiday dining rather than anything fancy.
Eating and Drinking in Trento, Trentino

Eating and Drinking in Trento, Trentino

Trento, Italy
Whether or not you’ve been to Italy, it’s no secret that the food is great. If we were playing a game of word association, I bet food would be the first word that comes to mind if someone were to say “Italy”. Well, last week I visited Trento and my tastebuds can confirm that the rumours are all true!
My New Favourite Restaurant: Blue Sakura

Leeds
If you know me or have read my 'hunt for the best sushi in Leeds' blog post, you'll know that sushi is my favourite food, especially when I'm hungover. So when I saw that an all-you-can-eat sushi restaurant was opening in Leeds, I literally squealed with excitement and eagerly awaited the next time that a hangover, a sushi craving and a bottomless appetite would grace my presence.

I never planned on writing a blog post solely reviewing the hotel, but we had such a lovely time here that I had to! So here it is.
Eating My Way Around Manchester

Eating My Way Around Manchester

Manchester
Despite Manchester only being an hour away from home, I pretty much know nothing about it. So when Billy whisked me away for the weekend to see Jersey Boys at the theatre (which was great by the way, definitely recommend!) I took the opportunity to experience the city in the best way I know how... via my taste buds.
Where to Eat in Vilnius and Trakai

Where to Eat in Vilnius and Trakai

Vilnius
If you've read my most recent post, you'll already know that I spent my birthday weekend in Vilnius wandering snowy streets, eating constantly and drinking plenty of mulled wine. Having not done much research about Vilnius, I was surprised by how much there was to see and do, but also by the fantastic food scene. We ate a LOT on this trip, mainly because minus 11 is pretty cold so required plenty of stops to warm up! The below might look like a list of every single place I stopped, but honestly these are just the highlights!
The Man Behind The Curtain: A Review

The Man Behind The Curtain: A Review

Leeds
Before I get into this post I have to admit that I don't have many pictures to share. As it was a once in a lifetime kind of meal, I wanted to fully immerse myself in the experience rather than worry about getting the right shot of each of the 14 (yes, 14!!!) courses. Sometimes you just have to enjoy the moment.
A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Cave

A Yorkshire Adventure to White Scar Cave

Ingleborough
Yorkshire is perfect for a day out, whether you're entertaining the kids, spending time with a partner or having a solo adventure! There is so much beautiful countryside and a million things to do. This weekend Billy and I visited White Scar Cave in Ingleborough, North Yorkshire. My Christmas present to Billy this year was 'a year of fun', which has consisted of me planning a day out/activity/event to do together once a month for the next year. This was January's treat and an attraction that I would highly recommend to anyone. 
A Tapas Trail Through the Best Restaurants in Playa Blanca

A Tapas Trail Through the Best Restaurants in Playa Blanca

Lanzarote
new year. Although I'm not the biggest fan of new year's eve, I LOVE new years day! I can't think of a better way to spend the first day of the year than sat in the sunshine with a glass of cold, crisp, white wine accompanied by endless tapas from some of the best restaurants in Playa Blanca. The ultimate way to experience this is by embarking on a 'tapas trail'. For me this involves walking from Billy's parents' house in Las Coloradas along the winding sea path to Playa Blanca's Marina Rubicon, stopping at as many places as possible in the marina for a tapas or two and, of course, a glass of wine.
