As I’m sure you know by now, when a new Italian restaurant opens in my hometown, I like to discover more about it and preferably pay a visit as soon as possible. So when I heard that an Italian restaurant had opened as part of the new development on the former Vosper Thornycroft site in Woolston, I just had to contact them. Just to register my interest, of course 😉
I was thrilled to be invited to the winter menu launch night at one of my favourite local eateries! I was actually at the restaurant one Friday night on a first date when the Restaurant Manager, Paul Galvin, very kindly invited me and a guest to the event the following Wednesday. He was being a bro! What an exciting opportunity to sample the new menu items before anyone else, and all on the house too! How could I say no to free pizza?! Unlike my previous invite to this amazing restaurant, my mother wasn’t invited. Instead, a close friend of mine, Amy Boniface, managed to get the night off from childcare and wifely duties to join me. Continue reading
Welcome! You’ve discovered my first ever cookbook review, I hope it’s everything you hoped it would be! I thought reviewing the cookbook to accompany Jamie Oliver’s latest television was a great place to start.
Portswood has enjoyed a refresh in recent years and now boasts a quirky selection of eateries. Over the last five years, this suburb just outside the city centre is home to a few gelaterias, a Greek taverna, a burger joint, a shisha bar and now *drum roll* a Neapolitan Pizzeria too! I was browsing Facebook one night and I saw on the Baffi page they listed a branch in Portswood. Eagerly I sent them a message asking more about this branch. I sent them a link to Keith’s Kitchen and they very kindly invited me in for a complimentary meal for two. Amazing! How could I refuse another free pizza?! What’s more, I was the only blogger to be invited!! Continue reading
I was thrilled to hear that a Neapolitan pizzeria had opened in Southampton’s new West Quay Watermark development. How such news passed me by still baffles me. I mean, you guys should know by now how much I love Neapolitan pizza!! I found their Facebook and saw they had a bloggers night to celebrate their opening, and people even got to make their own pizzas; wow! So I sent them a message asking whether they have any other bloggers evenings planned. The general manager, Mr Paul Galvin, very kindly invited me into the restaurant for a meal for two… on the house!! It was an extremely generous offer I couldn’t refuse. Continue reading
You can imagine how excited I was to be invited to the VIP launch of the first Taco Bell in southern England! I’d never even tried Taco Bell before which made it even more exciting!! Plus, everything was on the house!
I know, I know, it’s yet another pizza review!! But hear me out on this one. I rarely visit Greggs, but occasionally they introduce something yummy on their menu, such as the now-discontinued hot dog. Greggs is always great value for a cheap lunch on the go, and this pizza is a great addition to the menu.
