What I would pick for mums from Not On the High Street

February 27th, 2012 · 2 Comments · Baking, Foodie gifts

It’s well documented on here that I love Not On the High Street, and am a regular visitor and shopper for all kinds of gifts. So here’s a few lovely ideas from them for Mother’s Day.     Not at all suggesting that Mum should be doing the washing up, but this is a great […]

Brooks Guesthouse – A hidden Bristol gem

February 23rd, 2012 · No Comments · Foodie gifts, Foodie Travel

  I’ve already written about my unusual eating experience on my recent trip to Bristol, and reflected on the things I learnt about ageing well. But I have been remiss in not writing about our fabulous couple of nights at Brooks Guesthouse, which I cannot recommend highly enough. Some time ago I discovered that I […]

Scales that earn their keep

February 20th, 2012 · No Comments · Foodie gifts, Kitchenwares

I read a great post over on Essex Eating over the weekend, about favourite kitchen kit, which was illuminating in both the original post and in the comments. There was lots of mentions for great knives, KitchenAids and a few other bits you’d expect to see. Surprisingly, very few of us mentioned our scales. And […]

Za Za Bazaar quite a bizarre experience

February 19th, 2012 · 4 Comments · Foodie gifts, Places to eat

What’s it like to eat in the UK’s current largest restaurant? Well, we had a range of reactions to dinner at Za Za Bazaar in Bristol. MGG said amazing and cool, Dr T said it was like a scene from Bladerunner and my mum declared it an experience.     And I guess it was […]

Mother’s Day is on the way (18 March, in case you weren’t sure), so today’s choices are books inspired by the cooking of people’s mothers, across the ages, across cuisines.     * Cooking with My Indian Mother in Law – lets not leave out the mother in laws, particularly when they can share cooking […]

How to age well

February 16th, 2012 · 3 Comments · Foodie gifts, Just for fun

  And of course there’s a food angle to this. But I consider this a note to my future, much older self. Time spent with 3 different septuagenarians has showed me how your approach to ageing is governed by your attitude to life. And your attitude to life is often reflected in your attitude to […]

One for the pudding lovers!

February 13th, 2012 · No Comments · Foodie gifts

  I would definitely count myself in that group, and that’s perhaps why I love this print so much. I would definitely give this wall space, just along from the Go On, Go On print that’s recently gone up. This is a framed version from Culture Label, so ready to go straight on the wall. […]

Time for a cuppa?

February 12th, 2012 · No Comments · Foodie gifts

    I got a tweet from Clare at Bellevue Tea this week, asking me if I would have time for a cuppa on 27th February. The answer is almost always yes with me, but particulary this one, as this cup of tea is a fundraiser for Dementia UK. It’s a cause close to Clare’s […]

Because even food lovers can love flowers

February 8th, 2012 · No Comments · Foodie gifts

Or maybe just this food lover, as I love to have flowers around, although have a particular loathing for Valentine’s Day flowers. Maybe it’s my allegiance to the white rose of Yorkshire, or perhaps a canniness with cash from those years in Yorkshire which means I really object to the waste of cash on over-inflated […]

Chocolates for Valentine’s Day – true love shows true taste

February 7th, 2012 · 1 Comment · Chocolate, Foodie gifts

Can guarantee there will be some rubbish chocolate offerings around for Valentine’s Day, and I don’t just mean last minute quarter pound boxes picked up from the garage. In my view, I think all of these would pass muster and get you definite brownie points on the day:     * I’ve written about Amelia […]
