It is always exciting when a new food outlet opens, be it a mobile street food van, a local bistro, or a high-end restaurant. So when we were invited to sample the menu at the newly refurbished White Hart on Godstone Green, we have to say that, having been in the restaurant prior to its extensive renovation, we were interested to see what new owners Revere Pub Company have achieved.
Anyone who knows us will know our recent passion for Spanish tapas so when this morning a copy of Spain Buddy's recipe book dropped in to my inbox (PDF-style) courtesy of author Elle Draper, it is with a little excitement that I start to read through this e-book on Spanish food.
Nothing warms our tummies quite like a couple of fresh pies landing in the kitchen. So when a couple of pies arrived from Simple Simon's Perfect Pies, there were a few testers waiting to try.
This week we picked up some cookie dough from Morrisons. We were in the shop picking up a few essentials when these little tubes of loveliness caught our eye, and we have to say - we're impressed!
When a new food service comes to town, it is usual for the first few months to see a crowd of locals checking out the venue, menu and service. When a year or so later, the same restaurant is not only thriving but also opening another outlet in the same high street, you know they are doing something right!
When it comes to chocolate we confess, we love it! This is clearly reflected in our sister site and organised events via Discover Cacao. If we can bring more chocolate to the South East of England then we are certainly on that mission. So we are always happy to review new chocolate that happens to land on our desk. And this lovely selection from Pacari has just arrived.
