Skosh

Every time I try and start this blog I'm stumped for words. I simply want to write Wow! Over and over again because that's what I said on repeat every time I tried a dish at Skosh. In fact we've ended up going back for a second visit before I've written up the first! That's never happened before. It seems that a particular theme of great places to eat this year...

Street Cleaver Pop Up

I happened upon Street Cleaver by chance thanks to a leaflet in the window of Kiosk. I love the opportunity to try out pop ups so we went to Lucky Days and booked ourselves in. Street Cleaver describe themselves as creating unique, fresh and exciting street food. I was interested to see how they would do this in a restaurant environment and was pleasantly surprised. The dishes stayed true to...

Sara @ St John’s

We have been to Sara's supper club a number of times over the last 4 years but this is the first time I've blogged about it. I'm still trying to organise my life in such a way that I can have more time to write the blog.... Sara appeared on Masterchef a few years ago and reached the final. I remember watching the series and being in awe of Sara's...

Kiosk, York

I've been walking past Kiosk for a couple of months, every time when they are closed, intrigued.  I love food and I love ceramics so the window display and interior of Kiosk kept calling me in. Kiosk is another recent addition to Fossgate which has a growing collection of exciting and independent places to eat and drink. Finally I found a day when I was free and they were open...

Cave du Cochon

Mr Frivolitea and I have been waiting in anticipation for some time for Cave du Cochon to open, knowing that if it had even a fraction of the passion and flare Le Cochon Aveugle has then it was going to be a winner.  Oh boy, we were not disappointed.   We have been in the last few months to a couple of wine bars that offer wine flights, bar snacks...

Le Cochon Aveugle – photo blog

I've written about Le Cochon Aveugle before. I love it. Josh Overington is a genius. Here's what we had this week when we visited. ( we went for the carte Blanche option) A peche egg ( at least I think this is what it was called but who cares it was delicious! )  Whitby crab and apple, Potato chip Radish with fermented pepper mayonnaise English and white French asparagus, almond...

Brew and Brownie

I love this place. Everything about it. Right down to the hipster lighting ( light bulbs in jam jars ) You should go. Really you should. You might have to queue but that's ok, it's worth it. We went for breakfast today and boy was it good. I had the pancake stack with fruit compote, yoghurt and honey. Other options include salted caramel and banana. The pancakes are light and...

Pairings

Some might think that in early January, not long after Christmas excess, we might have had enough cheese and cured meats and we'd avoid them for a while.....what foolish people.  You can NEVER have enough cheese and cured meats and when you see that Pairings have a January offer of a bottle of wine and a platter for two for £25 how could you refuse? Exactly.  This was our first...

Spa and Dine at Cedar Court Grand

 Recently I met up with a friend for a catch up.  We try and do something nice together a couple of times a year and had in the past enjoyed a spa day.  Unfortunately we didn't have a day to catch up this time so I was on a mission to find something  that felt like a treat and was similarly relaxing.  We'd agreed York was the best place to...

Le Cochon Aveugle

To quote Mr Frivolitea 'a neon sign means either very good, or very bad things inside'. We'd heard some good things about this little restaurant in York, finally got round to booking in, and we can confirm this particular pink neon is a sign of VERY good things. I'm a fan of a tasting menu, I love having no choice and instead enjoying several different plates of food that I...
