Dining at Dough Bistro

A couple of weeks ago, Mr M and I tried out Dough Bistro in West Park, Leeds. What interested me most about Dough was the focus on locally sourced food. I can’t believe that more restaurants don’t do this as a matter of course (ha), but it’s still quite a rarity. Local food is something […]

Hmmm….. Doughnuts: Krispy Kreme Opens in Leeds

Krispy Kreme has opened a new store in Leeds, and I was invited to the VIP launch. Free doughnuts?! A doughnut theatre?! Brilliant. Mr M and I arrived with gurgling tummies ready to be filled with sweet delights, and we were not disappointed. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the staff, were handed champagne […]

The Sunshine Bakery Lights Up Leeds Kirkgate Market

The Sunshine Bakery has been featured every Friday for the last month at The Source‘s stall in Leeds Kirkgate Market. I saw a picture on Twitter of what was on offer and just couldn’t resist it, so nipped in on my lunch break. I say ‘nipped’, but my knowledge of the roads south of Leeds […]

March of Dimes at The Brudenell Social Club

March of Dimes played the Brudenell at last!! HURRAH. They are my favourite Leeds band, but then Mr M is the bass player, so I am perhaps a tiny bit on the biased side. If you don’t live in Leeds, or haven’t heard of the Brudenell, it’s a fantastic gig venue in Leeds. It’s set […]

Carluccio’s Launches in Leeds

Last week I went to the launch party of Carluccio’s, on Greek St in Leeds. It had an exciting, vibrant atmosphere no doubt helped by the endless bottles of Prosecco that kept doing the rounds! A bit like a wedding reception, but even more tiddly. Unfortunately though, Le Bump prohibited me from partaking in this […]

The Source Launches in Leeds

Last Thursday saw the opening of a new food venture at Leeds Kirkgate Markets. The Source has a prime spot in the tangled web of stalls. Going in by the left entrance it’s right there in front of you, which is very handy, especially as they have produced a guide to where different food stalls […]

Get your chops around this

I was driving to work last week, and there was a big new sign on the roundabout in Horsforth: Horsforth Asparagus, available to purchase 4pm – 6pm. I’ve never seen local asparagus advertised before, and was immediately intrigued. On my way home I stopped off, and the whole thing was quite exciting… I turned off […]

FEATURE: Bettakultcha – storytelling in the 21st century

Storytelling is verbally sharing a narrative, whether true or imagined. It began as an oral tradition; stories were committed to memory and passed down through the generations, until the written word came along and captured them in a new form. Storytelling is essentially what happens at Bettakultcha, although it wasn’t necessarily what I was expecting. […]
