Another tale of blogging woe. And cake.
Supperclubs – all the rage, yeah?
Fancy yourself as a bit of a baker? Love the warming aroma of fresh gingerbread, or decorating houses made from cake? Or just eating them? You’re in luck.
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!
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.
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.
Updated Fri. 25/1/2013 – With the terrible weather we’ve had the past week, most of the restaurants are extending their offers by another week until up to 3rd February – hooray!
Eating with your eyes closed.
