Aldi Wine Tasting

Muscat

Aldi Wine Tasting. Feature by Lisa Hooper: Supermarket wine has come a long way in recent years and those of us who watch Saturday Kitchen often see the wine expert picking something off the shelves of M&S or Waitrose.  However, not so many of us would think of going to Aldi if we wanted a […]

Gressingham duck 3

Gressingham Duck Feature by Sarah James: Duck is a hugely underrated meat, and I can’t think why really. If you like beef, and you like chicken as well then duck is not exactly a mix of the two but trust me, you’d like it! The meat is also very low in fat, so if you […]

Chocolat Chocolat review just in time for #ChocolateWeek

chocolat chocolat bar 1

Custom made chocolate bars from Chocolat Chocolat.

The Bunk Inn – Thatcham

Upham Beers

A Day in the Country – The Bunk Inn, Curridge, Thatcham: While it’s fabulous to travel overseas, visiting places like India and Sri Lanka, sometimes I yearn for a bit of British countryside.  The recently refurbished Bunk Inn, part of the Upham Brewery Group, sounded perfect after a month away.  A bit of real England.
