Jamie's Italian, Birmingham

Meat Plank at Jamie's Italian Birmingham

Italian food for me is such comfort food. Pizza, pasta, cured meats and lots of cheese, accompanied by wine, I mean can you get much better? So when I was invited to go down to Jamie's Italian in Birmingham city centre, I said yes please and thank you.

Chris in tow, we headed there for a late lunch after doing some Christmas shopping. As we were also meeting a friend for a curry later on that night we decided to share a starter and dessert. We still had to try all courses, for review purposes obviously.

BBC Winter Good Food Show – Birmingham NEC

Good Food Show Winter 2016

I absolutely love the Good Food Shows and have been to a couple now. A few weeks ago Chris and I headed to the winter edition held in the NEC.

The show runs across three days and as well has having hundreds of different food, drinks and appliance stands it also has delicious food on offer to eat there and then, cocktail and prosecco bars, a restaurant and a host of shows with celebrity chefs.

I’d say if you’re interested in watching the shows then the best day to go is Saturday, but if you’re after some bargains on food, drink and gifts then go on the Sunday.

Indico Indian Street Food, Birmingham

There’s no denying that Indian cuisine might be one of my favourites, especially Indian street food. So when I was invited to the VIP launch of new Indian Street Food restaurant, Indico, based in Shirley Birmingham, I couldn’t wait to go along.

Walking in you’re met with brightly coloured interior, I honestly felt transported to India rather than being in Birmingham! Amazing mural paintings adorn the walls, as well as brightly coloured umbrellas hanging from the ceiling.
