Woking Food & Drink Festival 2015

It’s that time of year again. Woking Food & Drink Festival was back for another year and was bigger than ever. Stretching over 3 days, there was an abundance of food and drink stalls, book signings, masterclasses at Tante Marie, BBQ Demonstrations, and live cookery demos from the well known Daniel Britten and Monica Galetti, to the chefs from restaurants around Surrey.  For me Sunday is where it was at. Why? John Whaite of course! I am a humongous Bake Off fan, like super fan, into the fact I am devastated I am going to miss the finale this year (it is…

Byron Proper Hamburgers Camberley

The menu is simple, covering your Classic to Cheese, to B-Rex and Chilli Queen. If beef isn’t your thing there’s a chicken, mushroom or bean burger on offer. No bun, no problem you can go skinny…

If you are a regular reader you may recall I reviewed their Lovely Fruity Nutty Crunchy bar, fear not if you haven’t you can read it here.  Whilst out and about I spied an array of The Grown Up Chocolate Company in Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shop, and jumped for joy that they had the Superb Salted Peanut Caramel. At £2.99 it was a huge £1 mark up on the RRP which I was not impressed about, however given finding this…

Marks & Spencer Gastropub Beef Wellington

Today’s post is a savoury number. Inspired by dishes found on gastropub menus, Marks & Spencer’s Gastropub range is ever expanding. In our house we are a huge fan of their Runny Scotch Eggs and have subsequently been eyeing up their Gastropub Beef Wellington for some time. At £14.99 it’s on the expensive side for a ready meal, but on this occasion we are taking the plunge. Cooking couldn’t be simpler. Place on a baking tray, pop in the oven for 25 minutes, and hey presto it should be a beautiful medium / rare.  British beef fillet with rich mushroom and chicken liver duxelle, wrapped…
