B Factory – Naples, Italy

I love meat. This is well known about me and Naples is very full of fish and pizza but I want my meat injection – wahey – from this city too.  There are a few steak restaurants around, none are in the centre of Naples but I found one on the sea front.

Sea front restaurant about a 30min walk from the historical district. Easy to find if you walk straight down the Toledo (main shopping road, so I hear) then curve with the shoreline to the right. Or just Google maps it.

Pasta making with Tutti A Tavola 

Ciao! Today, we make-a some-a past-a with Silvana from Tutti-a-Tavola. And I promise I won’t type in that poor Italian/English stereotypical phonetic hybrid any more. Promise.

Based in West London, Silvana runs pasta making classes every week, rotating the type of pasta each month to keep you on your toes. Interesting! She covers both the glutenny and gluten-free pastas from scratch: Tuesday and Saturday evenings for the glutenny amongst us and gluten-free on Sunday lunchtime. We opted for the gluten ‘standard’ pasta, and the flavour of the month was Tricolore Garganelli! Huzzayy! Colourful pasta fun!

Stacja Pasibus – Wroclaw, Poland

I’m finishing off 2017 and welcoming you to our first post for Poland! I swept in here for a little pre-Christmas break to see what was what and basically eat my way through a few Winterry days. This is when I found Stacja Pasibus and I’m ruddy glad I did. In front of the entrance to one of the Christmas markets, this place was a frookin’ gem to walk into.  I did have a little fear of “WHAT IF THEY HAVE NO SEATS?!” but our accidental timing was fortunate, so we grabbed a table straight away.

Upcoming: Magic Roundabout Winter Launch

The oh so East London drinking and dining den Magic Roundabout, which resides in the middle of Old Street roundabout is coming back for Winter!

They’ve tented it, heated it, and revamped it with a new old school theme. The new venue will take you back through the decades, with areas decked out in homage to the 60s, 70s, 80s and (our personal favourite) the 90s.  The new themed areas include a Woodstock with some serious flower power and tribute to the late, great (in some opinions) Hugh Heffner with a super sexy 1970s Playboy lounge, complete with sheepskins and log fire. The Main Bar will be an all out 80s disco with futuristic art and palm trees and finally, the VIP Area will take you right back to the early 90s; oh the patterns, oh the Fresh Prince colours! Hopefully Big Willy himself will make an appearance… (ok, maybe not but let a girl dream!)

CauliRice – Cauliflower Rice

A couple of years back I went on a semi ‘clean eating’ or lower carb way of eating and some of that involved swapping up standard rice for cauliflower rice.  I’ll admit the low carb choice did not last long, but having cauliflower rice stuck with me a lot longer than giving up bread or potatoes…. so when I saw CauliRice as a product and interest in blogger reviews I was keen to give this product a shot.

Please Don’t Tell – East Village, New York City

Last Winter, Fork My Piehole took a trip to the concrete jungle that is New York City.  We’ve both been to NYC before but, as we’d already done most of the touristy bits, this time we had the pure aim of consuming as many goodies as we possibly could.  We’d heard of Please Don’t Tell from friends and online and it was a definite ‘need to visit’ on our list.

This is a non-reservation bar and quite exclusive; we had to call for a table non-stop for a good ten minutes to get through the phone lines. We’d tried the previous day with no joy – we did call a bit later (you have to call when they open at 3pm), so learned our lesson and set an alarm to remind us to book – and having limited time in NYC this was our last chance! Luckily we got through and booked a table. So, as it would make sense, we made our way to the East Village for our slot at 9pm.
