Schwartz – Fajita Seasoning

Who likes alliteration?! Meeeee! Okay well maybe not as much as that, but it’s February and I’m going to be chatting to you about some Fajita Seasoning made by Schwartz….I’m therefore declaring it Fajita February!

I want to add a little note here to say that Schwartz have sent me this fajita seasoning for review, but all views are my own. I’m giving my honest opinion as always so let’s see whether this little jar of sprinkles tickled my tastebuds or not.

Crispin E1, Fallow Restaurant Team Residency (7 Jan-7 March 2020) – Spitalfields, London

Howdy partners! A quickish post from me today to recommend a place I went to this week called Crispin, which is currently having a delicious 2 month chef residency from Jack Croft & Will Murray of Fallow.  I was lured into booking a table here because both chefs previously worked together at the Heston Blumenthal restaurant Dinner….

Second Shot coffee – Bethnal Green, London

I’ve bought a take out coffee from Second Shot  a few times before now but hadn’t ever sat in, and I’m glad I did this time.

International Cheese Awards 2019 – Nantwich, UK

Six weeks ago, if you’d asked me to describe my “happy place,” I would have talked about my wedding day. Now that I’ve experienced the International Cheese & Dairy Awards media launch, it’s a little too close to call.

If you don’t like cheese, this is where you stop reading (there are plenty of other Fork My Piehole posts that will work for you instead so check those out).

Picture yourself in a white room draped with cloths, grapes, figs, you’re handed some Prosecco, and most importantly there’s more cheese than you could ever eat. Are you in heaven? No, you’re at the International Cheese & Dairy Awards media launch. And yes, this is an event that already happened, but in just two short weeks the real deal is coming to a field near you if you live in Nantwich: the International Cheese & Dairy Awards 2019, and guess who’s been invited to be a part of the judging panel.
