Culinary Captures - February

A frosty February has seen us swoon over Valentine's Day, toss those pancakes high on Shrove Tuesday and for some, they are still coming to terms with the news that James Martin is leaving the BBC's Saturday Kitchen show.  A short month, but a fully packed one nevertheless.

As always, I've come across a few new foodie things on my travels which I'd love to share with you.  Hope you like them!

If you're looking for an alternative to afternoon tea in plush hotels, then look no further!  A friend of mine came back raving about her time in London recently where she had afternoon tea on a traditional red bus!

The bus travels round the capital taking in all the sights (although no commentary is given) whilst serving afternoon tea in its true form.  Veggie options are available and alcohol can be consumed. 

Combining the Britishness of a London bus with quintessential afternoon tea, this option sounds like good fun and is great for tourists with a time limit!

Strawberry, Cream & Champagne Cheese - The Cheshire Cheese Company

Originally one for the Valentine's Day cheeseboard, this limited edition cheese wrapped in a waxy heart shaped cover has been extended until after Easter, so plenty of time to check it out.

Although I've not tasted this myself, this pink cheese has certainly made me curious!  Anyone had any already?

I'm a big fan of the National Trust and they have some lovely ceramic mugs and kitchenware on their website and at their shops right now.  By purchasing from the National Trust, you are supporting the good work they do to help preserve some of the UK's most historic properties which are open for all to enjoy.
