The Oxfordshire Foodie

Michelin Star Restaurant in Oxford – Taster Menu Review There are many VERY good restaurants and pubs in Oxfordshire and we are without question spoilt for choice in this wonderful county.  There are however, only 3 restaurants in Oxfordshire which have michelin stars. In 2018 The Oxford Kitchen was awarded 1 star by the Michelin guide. Head Chef, […]

Wine Flows

Sometimes, when the four of us stare at one another and are not one hundred percent all aligned what bottle of wine we’d like to get for one of our tastings, which doesn’t happen often, we pop straight into the nearest liquor store and walk directly up to the attendant and ask them for the […]

It is difficult not to be fascinated by Lisbon charm! Look around! The showy trade zones are found side by side with the cozy streets, magnificent castles, and multicolored small houses, decorated with the bright abaciscus. Anyway, a mass of pleasant surprises and pleasures are waiting for you at every step. Here are few recommendations […]

My Semester Abroad!

In the past two weeks, I’ve gone on a few day trips around Georgia and I thought I would combine them all into one post for the sake of convenience. My first day trip was to some sights in central Georgia. We began our sightseeing in Borjomi. Borjomi is a resort town in central Georgia […]

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (AP) – Organizers of a culinary festival in North Carolina hope to cook up a new tradition honoring the history of Appalachia. The Post and Courier of Charleston reports the event called “Chow Chow” will be in Asheville from Sept. 12 to Sept. 15. It’s named after a traditional sweet and sour vegetable slaw. Chef Katie Button says the festival is loosely modeled after “Charleston Food + Wine,” which has been catering to foodies each year for more than a decade. “Chow Chow” is scheduled to fire up a tasting fair, seminars and 20 signature events. Organizers also plan to stir in a culinary bus tour, soul food walking tour, field-to-fork brunch and more. The festival is partnering with MANNA FoodBank to reduce food waste by giving uneaten food to those in need. Copyright 2019 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

David Crossley's Wide World of Wine

Of all the countries outside Europe I would say my favourite has to be Japan. Somehow I find I have an affinity with so much about Japan (though certainly not every aspect of Japanese society). It might surprise British readers who have never visited that so much about this country, however exotic it might seem […]

Rant And Whisky

Here’s five new tastings for you. I’d like to find a way to join them up, but it’s difficult. Travel has given me personal connection with the first two. The third has been in New Zealand wine barrels. The last two I just like. Close enough! Inchmurrin 15yo 15yo, 46% abv, colour 0.4 Loch Lomond […]

Wine talks and tastings

It’s not often that I can say I’ve tasted a wine from a grape variety that’s completely new to me, but I did so recently. The grape was Novac and the wine came from the Romanian producer Prince Stirbey (Wine Society, £13.95). A little research showed Novac to be a cross between another Romanian variety, […]

Today’s sermon is about casting away regrets.  It is about planning your life in such a fashion so as to avoid potential regrets. Thus, we take as our starting point this morning—as is wise on most any given day—a quote from Mark Twain:  “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things […]

Today’s world shows a vast number of spectacular drinks like tea, coffee, wine, and beer. To be honest, there is no accounting for taste, but there is a subtle difference between each drink, particularly how the way they affect your body and eventually determine your health. Talking specifically about wine and beer, which one is […]
