A Food Diary from Stobo Castle

When I booked a couple of nights stay at Stobo Castle over the Festive Period, I hadn’t realised that all the meals are included in the room price (as well as the use of the spa facilities, which makes this a very good deal btw), in fact I hadn’t really thought too much about the […]

Piper Heidsieck Champagne Lunch & Sabrage at The Bonham Hotel

Last week I was lucky enough to have been invited to another lovely Piper Heidsieck event (they do know how to do them well!) seeing a live sabrage was a massive draw (as of course was the chance to quaff champagne & enjoy a lovely lunch at Edinburgh’s Bonham Hotel).

Itchycoo at The Radisson Blu

Last week I was invited along to try the new Sea, Field, Farm & Heaven menu at Itchycoo – the restaurant in The Radisson on The Royal Mile. I wouldn’t normally go to a hotel restaurant, lot less one on the Royal Mile but the name was so appealing I thought I’d give it a […]

a cheeky lunch at Galvin Brasserie De Luxe

Since it’s opening, I’d been desperate to try the Galvin Brasserie De Luxe, part of the recent and extensive refurb at the Waldorf Caledonian Hotel, (especially with chef Craig Sandle at the helm – my mouth waters just recalling an amazing day foraging with him in Perthshire and the delicious al fresco lunch he prepared). Along with […]

Jeremy Wares charity dinner – what did we eat?!

As many of you will know I was quite excited to have been invited to a charity dinner at Houston House Hotel hosted by Michelin chef Jeremy Wares to raise money for Parkinsons Disease. Jeremy Wares suffers from Parkinsons and opened a restaurant at (the rather lovely) Houston House earlier in the year and came […]
