Another week has come and gone, and I’m definitely feeling that this week has seen us move from lovely autumnal days to crisp bloody freezing winter. I don’t mind though, because I have spent my week bundled up in hats and scarves which is absolutely my favorite style statement.
This has been a mega fun food week for me – I went to check out newly opened Villiers & Co wine bar on Tuesday night for wine and cheese with my friend Liberty which I loved.
And, as if one date night in a week with Lib wasn’t treat enough, we then hit up Ox and Finch on Thursday night for some delicious food and a cheeky bottle of Champagne. All the food was spectacular but special mention has to go to the fried squid which was just devine, I would go as far as saying best fried squid I have ever had.
Feeling bad that I perhaps hadn’t seen MrG that much this week, I took him along with me to the Blythswood on Friday night for some mega delicious food. I always love to visit this gorgeous 5 star hotel, because it never fails to make me feel mega luxurious and glamourous – and this visit was no exception.
I have to tell you guys what I had because honestly it was so good!
We kicked off the night with a little amuse bouche of pigeon breast, which was rich and super gamey. Next up, I went for the scallops & confit boneless chicken wings which was just as flavourful and heavenly as it sounds.
Then since it was a chilly and wet night, I couldn’t look past the autumnal sounding seared loin of Highland venison. This came served with a smooth creamy cauliflower puree, and the nicest roasted cauliflower ever….you know why this is the nicest cauliflower ever? Because I don’t even like the stuff, but I wolfed this roasted version down.
And as if all this wasn’t enough, I then saw the magic words – Peanut Butter Cheesecake, and my fate was sealed. It was light, nutty, buttery and just fecking awesome!
Such a delicious dinner!
So, that is my tasty food-heavy week all summed up. All that is left to tell you guys is that I have made a big decision on a new feature I am bringing to the blog, which I think you guys will love…..Keep an eye on the blog tomorrow for the big announcement.
I hope you had a great week, and I will catch you next Sunday team.x
