Leeds Indie Food Festival is almost upon us, and I thought I would share a little about it as well as my thoughts ahead of this two week extravaganza.
Nation of Shopkeepers has long since been a Leeds favourite of mine. A convenient spot for a study snack, then a good excuse to escape the office at lunch. After a little time away for a revamp, a new look Nations opened last week, and I couldn’t wait to step though the doors and check it out for myself!
There’s nothing better than being in the company of friends, unless, that is of course you’re having food with friends (or in my case friend).
The Lost and Found on Greek Street is a unique bar and eatery, offering a period twist on the classics. The Leeds Branch of the Lost and Found is named Virginia K. Stevenson after what I imagine is an entirely made up ‘forward thinking and free-spirited individual.’
A recent visit to York and I couldn’t resist popping into Bettys, and popping into Bettys always means I end up with a bag full of treats. So here’s what I tucked into one very indulgent Sunday.
One of the things we’re constantly told in life, among many, many others is that we should never skip breakfast. Heeding that advice, well, sort of, I visited the Alchemist for brunch.
As we descended into the colder months I took the opportunity to cook. Life often gets away from me, as evidenced by this write up of an October dinner, but I find that stopping and taking time for food establishes a good balance.
A little while ago I met up with some friends for nothing more than a good old catch up. One of the group suggested the venue should be Bundobust, an Indian street food and craft beer eatery, nestled down one of Leeds’ side streets. I originally had a table for four arranged in for a box standard Italian chain, and never have I been so glad I cancelled a booking.
