Tennessee Calling II

Jack Daniel’s have just unveiled their top 10 bartenders in the North, and  not one but FOUR of them are from our very own Liverpool. All of them were selected as part of the Tennessee Calling competition, an initiative to support up and coming bartenders in their careers and learn from the best in the industry.

One of the entrants is Toby Boyce from the pizza mecca that is Santa Maluco. Now, If you want the nitty gritty about the food you can check out my review here, but for now it is all about the bevvies.

Afternoon Tea with Mum

Being a full-time-member-of-society-got-my-own-house-now-person has its perks. Namely that I can order takeaway whenever I want without judgement, I can go to bed in the middle of a Saturday if I feel like it and I can leave my bedroom as messy as I please. On the downside, I don't get to see my family as much as I used to. So, after my mum returned from an Italian mini-break we decided to meet up over tea. Afternoon tea, to be precise.


Christmas Ice Festival

Christmas at the Pier Head

Whether Christmas is something you love or you loathe, it's coming. When it comes to making the most of the festive season we're spoilt for choice this year. Liverpool One have already whacked their tree up and brought back the karaoke bar underneath, St George's Hall is playing host to an alley of festive market stalls and now the Ice Festival at the Pier Head has returned bigger and bolder than before. Here's 4 reasons you should squeeze in to your winter woollies and head down to the waterfront in the next couple of weeks to check it out.

1. The View
Almost every day I marvel at the beauty of our skyline as I scroll absent-mindedly through photographs on my Instagram feed. How often do I go and see it in person? Rarely. The Ice Festival couldn't be in a better location if it tried. Slap bang in-between The Liver Buildings and the Mersey you get to celebrate the best of the festivities whilst admiring the city from it's best angle. If you don't mind the heights then make sure you see it from above at the top of the Ferris Wheel.


Chez Mal

This time of year calls for plenty of catch-up meals with friends, special dinners with family and champagne socials with the work colleages (as much as you might protest). If you're looking for somewhere that is going to impress then I've got just the place:
 Chez Mal Restaurant at the Malmaison hotel.

Love Thy Neighbour

Food and Cocktails to Nourish the Soul

It may not come as a huge surprise to you but I'm not exactly a health and fitness fanatic- I know, shocking isn't it? Don't get me wrong- I try. But ultimately, I have the willpower of a 5 year old child let loose in front of a party buffet. That's why when I got an email asking if I wanted to try the new evening menu at Love Thy Neighbour I was excited but nervous. Would it be all 'clean-eating', calorie counting and juices? (Spoiler: no, it wasn't)


Alternative Advent Calendars

Advent for the Adventurous Eaters

Advent Calendars are the perfect example of the gift that keeps on giving (for 24 days, to be exact). If you want to get your gift-giving in early this year then a calendar is the way to go. Not only will your loved one have something tasty to eat each morning of December, you can also smugly claim you've got them 24 presents instead of one. Forget those cheap, plazzy chocolate ones though, these calendars are actually worth eating.  


George's Great British Kitchen

Fish and Chips and..Cocktails?

It was the desserts I saw first. They appeared on my Facebook feed and I couldn't get them off my mind. I heard rumours of Candyfloss, Caramacs and deep fried chocolate bars and my mouth started watering. With that in mind, the wait for George's to open seemed eternal. But eventually, the day came and we headed down with empty bellies ready to be filled.
