We still haven’t managed to get down to Boost yet – it is always rammed on a Saturday afternoon, but they were kind enough to send us over some freebies for you canny lot.

Lunch At The Kitchin, Edinburgh

Lunch at The Kitchin, Edinburgh

  • August 7, 2013

Not exactly a “Newcastle Eat”, but special enough that it couldn’t be ignored. I was treated to lunch at Tom Kitchin’s flagship for my birthday last month, and what a treat it was…possibly the best lunch menu we’ve ever had, and great value too.

Foghorn Requiem

Foghorn Requiem

  • July 22, 2013

As part of the wonderful Festival of the North East, we were recently invited by DFDS Seaways to sample some food on board the mighty Princess Seaways, as part of the interesting/creative Foghorn Requiem event. Sunderland legend the Souter lighthouse is soon to be decommissioned, so it was a grand way for the local landmark to bow out, and what better way for us to watch the performance from the largest ship in the armada scoffing our faces!

Update: After a long sabbatical, I don’t think the Boiler Shop Steamer will be coming back in any form that we recognise it. Sad!

Kate Humble & John Whaite At Vallum Farm

Kate Humble & John Whaite at Vallum Farm

  • June 24, 2013

This Thursday sees Kate Humble launch her new book “Humble by Nature”, at one of our favourite new foodie places – Vallum Farm. Aside from interviews and Q&A with Kate and local weather girl Hannah Bayman, our eyes and bellies are on David Kennedy & his restaurant team at Vallum, who are putting on some hyper local food for the night. Surely veg-lord Ken Holland & his North Country Growers will be providing something fresh from the days harvest as well.

Hotel Du Vin Sunday Brunch, Newcastle

Hotel du Vin Sunday Brunch, Newcastle

  • April 14, 2013

Everyone’s seemingly talking Ouseburn at the moment. The trendy capital of Newcastle has loads of things to keep the hipsters busy, what with it’s digital startups, trendy bars, pop-up restaurants, and all round cool “vibe’. Having parked itself in an impressive Grade II listed building for nearly a decade now, Hotel du Vin (NE1 2BE) fits in quite nicely, despite being part of a national chain.

  • February 21, 2013

Watching this week’s Food & Drink, which had a segment on the rise of street food, made us realise it is now only 7 days until what could be the biggest street food event the region has ever seen.
