Bank Holiday Feast (August)

Where has this sun gone?!?!!?!? Genuinely I am distraught about the lack of heat and sunshine we have been experiencing. I think we have had 2 good weeks? I may be overexaggerating of course but still… not happy. There is however, one good thing that always comes out of August. The Bank Holiday. A great time really whether it is pouring with rain or the sun is so hot it burns you through your parasol. Given that we live in the most changeable weather country in the world, I have decided to choose 4 wines that should cover all bases...

It's Comin' Home (July)

You better believe that every 2 or 3 years when a major international tournament comes around that I, like every other English citizen, will firmly believe that this year it’s comin’ home!! It has been a rather interesting tournament, as expected with a lot of controversy! Penalties being given that were a bit soft… Handballs given that were extremely harsh and France being knocked out by Switzerland has got to be my favourite moment so far. Anyway you didn’t come here to read about England’s chances of winning the Euro’s as you can read that everywhere at the moment. What...

Wave upon Wave (June)

Wine and Fish. A great topic of discussion and one that I am very excited about exploring with you all today. I have decided to go traditional with my pairings here as I believe that realistically, it is difficult to go against the grain.

Let’s be honest it is June, so we should be feeling summery anyway!! At some point this summer when you are...

Summertime (and the livin’ is easy) (May)

‘Summertime’ has got to be one of my favourite songs, so I felt I had to title one of my blogs with the famous lyrics, now that we are well on the way there! The year has finally turned in my opinion; things are looking good for us all in the UK right now. Shops are open, restaurants, pubs and bars are open outdoors and even though the English weather is never kind, I amongst many others have been able to sit outside with people and have a drink and/or meal. As we start to look forward to the summer,...

Harry’s Birthday Favourites (April)

It’s here!!!! My birthday is tomorrow (3rd April) and even though we are still very restricted on movement I cannot help but think that things are going to get better. Realistically I think they are already getting better - here’s hoping that it continues into summer and we kick this disease into touch. As it is my birth month I have gone a little over the top with this month’s selection… which I am definitely not sorry about. So, this month we have a theme; ‘oooh’ I hear you say well ‘oooh’ away because it is going to be exciting!...
