In March I went along to a £10 tasting event at Taste Buchanan in the Buchanan Galleries in Glasgow. The premise was simple: £10 would get you a stamp card and you could then show this to each of the five vendors at Taste Buchanan – they’d give you one of their trademark dishes and a… Continue reading A second tasting menu event at Taste Buchanan
Before the trip to see The Red Shoes at the King’s Theatre last Tuesday, we stopped for a bite to eat at Torres Tapas on Sauchiehall Street. Torres is a restaurant I have walked past countless times, always wanted to try and never quite got around to it, so when Raj suggested it I was very… Continue reading Dinner at Torres Tapas

So, without any further ado, here’s my May round up: Financial status: Not bad, given… Continue reading May roundup
There are several ferries per day between Dubrovnik and Lopud Island, but the last one leaves at 8 pm. Since we didn’t want to spend absolutely every day ferrying back and forth between the mainland and the island, and since we didn’t want to eat dinner super early, we got plenty of chances to try… Continue reading A week in Croatia – part 2: Food highlights on Lopud Island
