After a fabulous weekend with great friends (M & G) in the Cotswolds, who like us appreciate good food, good ales and good wine it only deserves a few words and photos.

Hello, I know it’s been a long time and I hope you haven’t all missed my posts too much. I know I’ve been slack in posting (life has been busy) but it doesn’t mean I haven’t got some fab food tales to tell, so rather than try to recall correctly all the details from the past month or so I thought I’d post a storyboard of my highlights, I hope you enjoy and feel free to ask any questions…

Yes I’ve been to my favourite restaurant Memories in North Devon again, now I know you have read (twice) before how much I love this place here and here. So rather than rave on about it again I’m just going to share the photographs from another amazing meal which started with a scrumptious bottle of Champagne!

So I went away to a friends for the weekend in the Cotswolds. With our typical British Summer the weather wasn’t great but I had an amazing weekend. All be it a bit random and unexpected but always in a good and memorable way.
1 week ago today I proudly completely the Torbay Half Marathon (2hrs 2mins 30 secs) with a special friend. This is the furthest I have ever run and as we were staying in Torquay that night with our hubstars it only seemed right to indulge in some celebratory drink, food and then more drink!

I do feel guilty as it’s been a while since I’ve managed to write a post. Life has mainly been taken up with running having completed two 10k races. Although I have of course still been eating and cooking but meals have mainly been real quick and easy or recipes I’ve already written about. However I do like to think my articles are more about quality than quantity.

Memories Restaurant in Northam – well what can I say, it’s just fabulous – easily my favourite place to eat in the area. I know I have written about it before in my post Loving Memories Restaurant but I am still very much in love after dining there on Friday night with friends who had never tried the Memories experience . . .

This blog is more of a pictogram of my week in Italy and some of the drinks we indulged in; mainly wine. Italian Pinot Grigio has never been my favourite grape but we tried lots of wines from the region local to us at Passo Tonale, Trentino, including Pinot Grigio and they were all delicious. As we said during wine tasting many would fit into the “dangerous box”. It has educated me so that I will now look out for wine from this region.

|Having just got back from a snow holiday at Passo Tonale in Italy I thought it only right to share the dinner menu from my fantastic week. My hubstar, brother and I stayed in piste-side accommodation,
the Hotel La Mirandola, renowned for its food, decor and location; and the restaurant was just beautiful.
