Who has stolen my Bordeaux brasserie? Call the armed police!
Rick Stein in his great
TV series 'French Odyssey' from the 1990s once recommended eating at a railway station
brasserie for good food at very reasonable charges. I tried this out
on my previous visit to Bordeaux in 2008 and ate at the Entrechamps brasserie...

Are two steaks in one day too many? I think not.
Who would eat two beef
steaks in one day? Apparently I would.   Having already decided to use
the tram system to inexpensively glide about Bordeaux and see more of
the suburbs of the city plus, save my ailing feet, I found myself
around the Les Hangers area...

Superb Sunday open market in Bordeaux France.
I was last at the
Sunday market on the quay side in Bordeaux in 2008. Apart from a
couple of street musicians missing from the scene and one less wine
sampling stall to tempt me, nothing had really changed. Even the sun
had come out again to bless the Frenc...

Two types of roast chicken for lunch.
It must be nearly summer. Tonight I made use of two chicken meat ingredients and cooked them in different ways to enjoy together with some simple tomatoes, olives and two types of soft cheese. I can't pretend that I planned it all in advance. Really it just...

The point is to hear the lyrics. The enjoyment is hearing the words. Neither can I.

Michel Roux's Service programme. Episode eight - welling up now.
I tend to watch TV programmes on BBC iplayer and always head toward the food category to see what I would enjoy catching up on. Well, for whatever reason I missed Michel Roux's Service eight part series when it first went live in 2011 so I was intrigued to ...

Moules frites in Bordeaux. Bordering on the chewy.
When I arrived in
Bordeaux it was a Saturday afternoon and after booking into my hotel
I took a familiar stroll down the very busy rue St Catherine ,
complete with dense throngs of shoppers entertained by sporadic
street artists. Opposite the I cut down th...

pain I cannot believe it is almost a week ago on a Sunday evening
(17 th May) when I cautiously hobbled into the marché de Capucines for
a quick nose around after pickin...

last minute trip to Bordeaux in the South West of France. I have been

A review of Cured a cafe bar in West Bridgford.
For me, what better way
to spend the early part of a wet Friday evening in May than to bask
in the cosy comfort of the relatively new caf é bar called  Cured situated at 33/35 Central Avenue in West
Bridgford near Nottingham. I would say that West Bridgford...

Charcuterie Special No2. Bresaola
 I had seen Bresaola on the shelves but never got round to trying it until last week. I got a pack from the Co-op from their Truly Irresistible range. The lean topside of beef from which it is made is infused with various spices and extracts of black pepper...
