Food festivals are my favourite kind of festival. No sweaty tents or noisy camping neighbours and you get to sample amazing food and drink all day long. This year, Manchester Eats Festival launched at Heaton Park. With chefs such as Marco Pierre White, Matt Tebbutt, Ed Baines, Mary-Ellen McTague and Adam Reid on board, you just know that the bar is already set high.

Love it or loathe it, there’s no denying that the weather in the UK has been uncharacteristically glorious recently. Personally, I’m a big fan of the sunny days and hope it continues well into the year! A holiday abroad isn’t on the agenda for us right now so we’ve been taking full advantage of the sunshine with lots of old-school British picnics and BBQs.
If you read my post about the BBQ masterclass with Richard Holden and Thermapen at John Whaites Kitchen in Wigan earlier this month, here are the recipes we followed during the class that I promised to share with you guys. These have all been created by Richard Holden and you can find plenty more in his free downloadable BBQ book here. Enjoy!
