I thought I’d try and get back into the habit of posting some of my instagram photos here. So I’ll start with the first couple of weeks in November.
Dave went to a local cafe (T&Cake) and brought me back a slice of cake. Dont you just love their branding!
I make bread quite regularly at the moment (I’ve kept that up for nearly a year now). I recently bought a few tins to try with rather than hand shaping everything. You can see my monster loaf here where I misjudged the amount of dough needed for the tin! (and some baguettes and a better sized loaf too).
I love coffee. So on a recent trip in to Leeds I went to visit the new coffee shop; Mrs Athas which has opened just behind House of Fraser (a couple of doors on from Little Tokyo).
Last week we ventured to Manchester. We had lunch at Yuzu – a Japanese restaurant. I had ebi katsu to start and gyozas for main (it was a set main meal which came with miso soup, rice and pickles for £6.95)
Again, I went in search of good coffee which I found at a (packed) North Tea Power. It was so busy we had to sit outside! However, I was disappointed when I visited the toilet. It is very much in need of a clean/coat of paint.
Later on, we visited Italia Manchester on Deansgate. I had a really nice meal of calamari, soft shell crab pasta and homemade gelato. They have an amazing dessert bar there too – a must if you have a sweet tooth!
