What does the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham taste like? According to Amy Seton, founder of The Birmingham Whisky Club located on the JQ’s Vyse Street, it tastes of craft beer, innovative cocktails and some really good whisky. I was invited along to an exclusive event at The Birmingham Whisky Club last week, with some fellow bloggers, to Taste The Quarter, featuring a stunning selection of drinks from Burning Soul Brewery, The Vanguard at 1000 Trades, The Wilderness, Connollys Wine & of course, The Birmingham Whisky Club itself.

Scotts of Harborne

How can a courgette, a rather unexciting vegetable, become an absolute sensation? To answer that question, you’ll have to try the courgette fritters at Scott’s of Harborne. After a particularly boozy affair at Brumderland’s whisky tasting at The Anchor, a rather hungover George (of Caramel Latte Kiss fame), Dave & I were in dire need of sustenance, and sustenance we found in the form of coffee, burgers and those courgette fritters at Scott’s of Harborne. I’d never been before, seeing as I don’t frequent the Harborne end of town that often, but I feel I should having been now. If you’re liv ..read more

For those of you who’ve been reading my blog a while, you’ll know that I’m no stranger to whisky. Ever since I met Vicky from Brumderland, she’s been introducing me to wonderful whiskies at every opportunity. Vicky put on a very special whisky tasting a couple of weeks ago for a select few friends come bloggers – Caramel Latte Kiss, Bite Your Brum & Hey It’s Fay and respective husbands – along with food from Digbeth Market Kitchen, at The Anchor Digbeth. We took over one of the rooms at The Anchor so we had a cosy, private area just for us, and 7 different drams to try. First up w ..read more

Despite giving the bigger food festivals a miss this year (you can read my posts about Foodies Festival & the BBC Good Food Show from previous years) I’ve still managed to spend pretty much every weekend eating and drinking my way around Birmingham and the Midlands this summer. Here’s what I’ve been getting up to in June, July & August. Lichfield Gin, Cheese & Ale Festival I love a trip to Lichfield. It’s one of those cities that never fails to be beautiful, but especially so when the sun is shining and the gin is flowing. The Gin, Cheese & Ale Festival brought sunshine, street ..read more

Unlimited. Tacos. I’m just going to let that sink in for a second. I’m always down for tacos, so when I found out Antojitos had a pop-up at Last Chance Saloon and were dishing out as many tacos as I could fit in my face, I had to get down there. Their Taco Revolution menu cost just £10 and you could literally eat as many tacos as you could handle. There were also 241 cocktails on offer from 5-7pm from the award winning Last Chance Saloon bartenders. There were plenty of choices, including meat, fish & veggie, so I made it my plan to eat my way through all of them. But first, cocktails. I ..read more

There’s nothing I enjoy more on a Sunday afternoon than having a mooch around a farm shop. There are a few around Sutton Coldfield that I frequent, and the newest addition is Forage Food Hall. Forage boasts a butchers, bakery and deli, with an impressive selection of beers, wines & spirits, set within the rather lovely Coppice Garden Centre which also houses Fig & Olive restaurant. I popped along the weekend of their launch to check it out and buy all of the things. The fresh section has fruit & veg from local growers, and includes seasonal and speciality produce like heritage to ..read more

Boozy slushies, dirty burgers and great company. That’s just a small snapshot of what was on offer at the latest Independent Birmingham Festival. I spent a gloriously sunny Sunday at Aston Hall with Bite Your Brum, Caramel Latte Kiss & Eat with Ellen, plus a guest appearance from Brumhour‘s famous Dave eating ALL the food. The Independent Birmingham Festival always seems to attract the best of Birmingham’s street food, and this event was no exception. I’d been there for a total of around 6 minutes before I ordered myself a burger from the Meat Shack. I went for the Hell Shack, a 28 day ag ..read more

An Evening at The Cube Birmingam

The Cube is one of those places that’s always confused me a bit. Other than the flagship Marco Pierre White restaurant at the top, I’m never quite sure what’s there or whether it’s worth a trip, so when I was invited by their PR company to spend an evening at The Cube, I was interested to see what would be on offer. I headed along with Laura from Bite Your Brum, George from Caramel Latte Kiss and others to check it out. After one of the most disappointing drinks receptions I’ve ever had at Rodizio Rico (music WAY too loud, slow service, and a mouthful of granulated sugar that was supposed to b ..read more

For one weekend only, the streets of Birmingham are awash with cocktails, thanks to the glorious Birmingham Cocktail Weekend in association with Edinburgh Gin. 40 venues from all over the city get on board over a weekend in July to offer exclusive £4 cocktails to wristband holders. This year I headed along with some of my favourite blogging ladies Bite Your Brum, Caramel Latte Kiss, & Brumderland to sample as many as we could in one afternoon.
