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.
Why You Should Visit the Van Gogh Immersive Experience in York

Why You Should Visit the Van Gogh Immersive Experience in York

York
Art isn't usually my thing, I often find it a little boring and sometimes I just don't get it. There are exceptions to this rule, for example when I visited the National Gallery in London I was absolutely mesmerised, especially by the HUGE works of art dating back many centuries. Thinking about the time it must have taken and the dedication given to creating those paintings kind of takes my breath away. So when I was invited to attend the Van Gogh Immersive Experience in York recently, I was intrigued... what would it be like to step inside such an important part of art history?

A Serendipitous Night in Dalby Forest (Plus Things to Do Nearby)

Dalby Forest
Oh Yorkshire, why are you so beautiful? As much as I love living in the centre of Leeds, I also love the fact that there is so much more to explore in Yorkshire, all of it beautiful. I don't get to experience it as much as I would like to because a) I don't have a car so I either need to use public transport or hire a car; and b) I often find it cheaper to get a short-haul flight and a cheap hotel abroad than to stay somewhere in the UK. But when I do have a 'staycation' in Yorkshire it's always fabulous - and one of my favourites was at a stunning cabin in Dalby Forest where I spent a snowy February night between exploring the surrounding area.

Discovering Michelin Star Chefs At Pub in The Park

Discovering Michelin Star Chefs At Pub in The Park

I love a food festival, and I love street food. Equally, I love a fancy pants Michelin Star restaurant. So when I saw that Tom Kerridge was holding his Pub in the Park event in Roundhay Park, Leeds, I'm sure you can imagine my excitement! The event brings together award-winning food, Michelin-starred chefs and live-music for a day of, in my opinion, heaven. It's the perfect opportunity to discover world-class, British restaurants without having to book a table months in advance and save up your hard-earned cash for one evening of luxury.

It's a known fact that Yorkshire is the best county, right? So much so, that earlier this year when I was desperate for a few days away but feeling too anxious to travel, I opted for a break in my home county and spent a long weekend in Helmsley. Helmsley is a beautiful market town in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and makes for a great weekend away exploring this part of the world. There are plenty of things to do in Helmsley and the surrounding areas, here are just a few of them.

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!
