    8 great places to eat in Manchester

    Not everyone is familiar with Manchester. Dear reader, I am your guide so please pull up a chair. Manchester has been my home for the last eight years; we have a fickle relationship where I determinedly leave for pastures elsewhere and then she beckons her finger like a beguiling temptress and I come crawling back. […]

  • A week of food and love

    A week of food and love

    It is mainly upon reflection when you realise how greedy you are. In the moment, you’re hungry and there’s not a lot you can do to resist, even if you only ate breakfast an hour before. When you eventually think back and you become aware how much time was dominated by food and consuming said […]

  • A walk in the sun

    A walk in the sun

    A long-lasting impulse of mine, which may be shared by you too, dear reader, is to spend a bank holiday enjoying a hearty walk – inhaling fresh air, soaking up much needed vitamin D and topping up my incredible tan (think Edward Cullen) – before rewarding myself with a slap-up pub lunch because all that […]

    A tale of two birthday cakes

    It was Calum’s birthday (or as he liked to remind me, his ‘special day’). Presents, cards, birthday activities were incidental; my focus was, of course, his cake.

In a hotblooded display of manliness Calum ripped down the bent and dusty metal […]

    Bread and cake

    I love these kind of days. The great bowl of sky is bright peacock blue and clear all the way across from one sky scrapper to the other. Only thin white streaks scud across as planes drift soundlessly from one destination to another. It is warm, not uncanny for this time of year but maybe […]

    Hispi: The life of a chef

    I’ve seen a selection of interesting jobs in my adult life. After the cookware shop I interned at StudioCanal and was a bit too open revealing my love for Benedict Cumberbatch to a room full of laughing office workers before I moved on to become a personal assistant for a film director. I have worked […]

  • The 7 things I learnt in Manchester

    The 7 things I learnt in Manchester

    My recent trip to Manchester was like my many previous visits – gastronomic and involving a lot of Netflix. This time, however, my attention was brought to 7 things I should have learnt earlier in my 25 years of enjoying food: When it came to dinner time, my automatic reaction was to waltz into my boyfriend […]
