Brunch is one of my favourite meals and not one I regularly have since I’m a fairly early riser. It tends to happen when I have guests over and it becomes a welcome treat after a late night. Manchester has no shortage of really nice places to brunch at, but I want to talk about MIMOD’s Kitchen, who specialises in serving brunch supper clubs as a 5-course evening meal, also known as brinners. MIMOD itself is an acronym for Most Important Meal Of the Day. *
I have heard about Australasia as one of Manchester’s fine dining experience and was excited to be trying their new menu. We were all sat outside on the Terrace with plenty of heated lamps to keep us warm on what was a cool evening. Australasia, as the name suggests, serves food with an Australian and Asian spin. With drinks and canapé versions of the food throughout the evening, I will fill you in with what I was able to try. *
Meat Lust sauces are something that suddenly appeared in my fridge one day, care of the other half. I think he got them as presents one Christmas or birthday and they have ended up in my fridge. When I learnt that the Sauce and the City tour was run by this same brand, it piqued my interest, more so when I found out that Adam Richman of Man vs Food fame is sponsoring the tour! I went to trial the Meat Lust bus ahead of their scheduled tour starting on the 20th July! Look away, vegetarians! *
Growing up, I never had the tradition of having a Sunday roast. I was aware of it but never practised it, even after leaving home it’s not something you can cook when you’re living by yourself. That’s not to say I’ve not had my share of roasts with trimmings when my other half decides he wanted one, but he’s normally in charge of that. When Neighbourhood invited me to try their Sunday roast, I was eager to see how this would differ from my partner’s version. *

There’s something about a soft and warm bun of bread in the morning that makes me feel ready for the day ahead. As someone who loves baking, bread has also been one of my favourite recipes to do because of its many possibilities and flavours. I love watching the bun rise and become this fluffy and delicious golden treat when toasted! And because bread is one of my favourite things to eat in the morning, I decided to try combining it with one of my favourite drinks: Coffee!
That’s when I found out about Papparoti, a deliciously soft Mexican coffee bun that’s known all over Asia! So read on as I show you how to make papparoti for your morning meal or snack!
Revolution Bar is such a staple of the Manchester student bar scene. I didn’t really drink as a student so never actually ventured inside a Revolution Bar before. With a boom in cocktail making classes all across places in the UK, you are really spoilt for choice on where to do it in. Revolution Bar has long been a forerunner in this I feel, so here I will share my experiences of the food I had there as well as the actual cocktail masterclass.*
