Papparoti recipe

This post is kindly written by Claire from SumoChef.com.

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!

Long Island Ice Tea

at Revolution Bar

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.*

Slug and Lettuce drinks

at Slug and Lettuce in Spinningfields

I’ve never been inside a Slug and Lettuce prior to this review. If a restaurant is a huge chain and appears to do American or English food, it tends to slip my mind. I was therefore very grateful when they invited me for a small Cocktail Masterclass as well as some food as this gives me an opportunity to try a place that I had not thought of. Thank you to my dearest blogger friend, Lacey of Laceyfitspo, for inviting me to this. There are a number of branches of Slug and Lettuce in Manchester alone, but this review will focus on the Spinningfields branch. *

Interview with Home of La Juniper

I think that everyone can do little things to help in the world, whether it is people or the environment, or hopefully both, and this is what we aim to do. I wanted a company that, while selling useful, affordable and beautiful stock, also encouraged ethical buying.Eliza B, Owner of Home of La Juniper

Home of La Juniper is an online gift shop selling a range of unique homeware items and gifts. It is not just the products but the story and people behind the products which are important in deciding which traders to work with. Each item is carefully curated with an eco-friendly focus, which I really like.

Here, I interview Eliza, owner of Home of La Juniper.

Crispy coconut prawns (£5.95)

at The English Lounge

Pub food is such a British establishment, but I haven’t really been to eat since my student years (Wetherspoons anyone?). Sometimes I will pop in if I’m waiting at a train station somewhere since there is usually a pub nearby. There is something very comforting about eating pub food, the fact it’s no nonsense. The English Lounge can be easy to miss as you walk by the other side of the road to the Arndale market, heading towards Shudehill. Here, I will let you know what I thought of the place.

Castle MacLellan spread

Castle MacLellan pâtés

I’ve not always been much of a bread eater. My family mainly grew up on cereal for breakfast and rice (now there’s a stereotype!) for the evening meal. It wasn’t until I started dating my current partner that I developed a fondness for bread outside of your thin white slices used in standard sandwiches. Pâté naturally became a brilliant way of consuming proper bread as it is an excellent vessel for it. Here, I will share with you some pate from Castle MacLellan.*
