*I was invited along to review the Manchester Three Rivers Gin Experience FOC, however, all opinions are my own as always
My regular readers already know that I’m a big fan of gin. I first discovered the unadulterated joy of a simple G&T circa 2004 (yes I’m old) and am glad to see that 14 years later, the rest of the planet seem to have gotten on board with all things juniper-based.

When it comes to Halloween, I adore the aesthetics of the spooky season (basic much Lisa?), however, the proper horror and gore stuff isn’t really my bag. My girls may take great joy in being frightened half to death at ‘Farm of Terror’ or similar nightmarish events, but for me, I can’t think of anything worse.
I‘ve always preferred sweet food over savoury. Whilst traditional British food can often leave a lot to be desired, our puddings have always managed to shine. From Victoria Sponges and Lemon Drizzle Cake to Jam Roly Poly and Queens Pudding, they are the perfect Autumnal comfort food for a sweet tooth like me (I have no idea if these particular dishes are actually native to Britain so don’t @ me – just relax and enjoy the recipe).
Yesterday, Adam and I headed to the culinary haven that is Bolton Food and Drink Festival. For those of you that don’t know, this event is hosted in Bolton town centre every August bank holiday weekend and is an important date in any self-respecting foodies calendar, featuring live music, entertainment, celebrity and regional chef demonstrations, food, drink and craft stalls (obvs) and various other activities to enjoy.
