The ultimate Autumn comfort food


  Guys, I feel like I would be doing a massive disservice to you if I didn’t tell you about the new menu at Brewhouse & Kitchen. Why? Because they have something on it that is probably the best thing I have ever tasted, ever.     I’m getting ahead of myself a little here. If you haven’t heard of…

How Tintå cured my hangover


  I have a confession: I am such a devoted carnivore that I struggle enjoying any food that hasn’t got meat with it. The only exception to this pretty hard and fast rule is sticky toffee pudding, because anyone who doesn’t like sticky toffee pudding is just a monster. Yeah, I said it.   Anyway – the reason why I…

#MondayMotivation: 2-4-1 pizzas in Artichoke


  If Monday was a person, he or she would be my arch nemesis. I would spend considerable time plotting on how to destroy them. I would shake my fist into nothingness in a threatening manner, muttering things like “one of these days”. You know, the kind of stuff people with archenemies do.   Point is, I’m no good on…

Premium but not pompous – Stac Polly in Edinburgh


  In the interest of full disclosure, I will immediately admit that I love Scottish food. OK, I may not be too keen on deep fried Mars bars (I’ve never actually seen one) but haggis, Cullen skink, tatties and tablet are all really high on my list of things I love to eat.   And they’re not shy about their…
