Most eclectic small plates on Bold Street


You heard it here first folks – small plates is where it’s at. Okay, you probably have heard that a good few times from a good few people before, but let me reaffirm this to you by way of a little show and tell.     Over the weekend hubby and I were over at Liverpool with our aim firmly…

The best pancakes in Upton


  It’s been almost 18 months to the day since hubby and I upped sticks from Hoole and landed in Upton, this leafy, chilled suburb in Chester.

I could’ve, and should’ve come across Mama K’s burritos at one of the many festivals or other events they’ve attended around here, but I didn’t and it’s a downright shame.   Anyway. I came across…

Scandinavian Oven Baked Pancakes


So yesterday was pancake day. Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is the traditional feast day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Lent – the 40 days leading up to Easter – was traditionally a time of fasting. But instead of pancakes, I decided to treat hubby to a Scandinavian delicacy; the baked pancake.     Apparently, Scandinavian cooking…
