I’ll be honest and admit that I had not heard of what Yuletide was until this evening. I’m not sure where I failed in primary school and missed this piece of knowledge. Anyway, thanks to the wonderful Mel from Fooderati and Stewart from Whiteworks, a handful of bloggers had the opportunity to meet a few people in the Food industry as well as try the delights served by Darren Templeman at Restaurant Atelier.
“Hey, do you wanna chip in on some top-grade wagyu beef? It’s from the same wholesalers as where Tetsuya gets his beef and I have to eat a whole kilo of it!”, squeals V. “hmmmm tempting”, I think to myself “but not tempting enough for me to eat meat!”. Yes I don’t eat meat… only seafood. I am a pescetarian. So please note, I am writing in a subjective way… recalling the joy and excitement as I watch my roommates V and Tom devouring the wagyu with such delight.
With winter beating down our doors, what better time to highlight what is possibly my favourite meal ever. I really do love soups, all types of soups! I think half of it is the fact that soups are almost (almost I say) impossible to ruin and there’s nothing better than being home on a rainy day with a warm bowl of soup in your hands.
Chogz and Nogz recently invited us over for a “home cooked” dinner, how could we say no to that ? What was suppose to be a dinner cooked by them, turned into a thee course meal with everyone involved. We all prepared a dish each before retiring on the coach for some Scene It on the Xbox 360. Not only did we spend 1/4 as much compared to if we ate out at a restaurant, we all had fun without breaking the bank.
Plan B is an offshoot of Becasse, a little hole in the wall café. On our visit, we arrive shortly before 12pm but it seems the lunch time rush has already hit. We were here for the wagyu burger, but it seemed everyone else was too.
