If you’ve not been yet you’re seriously missing out. We love SteamPunk…it might be a little trip down the road but it’s well worth it. With their regular go-to coffee van parked up at Stockbridge market every Sunday you can now also enjoy the full steampunk experience at their home in North Berwick. A coffee warehouse come cafe come lunch spot come hangout come whatever you want it to be. Guarantee of a great coffee, superb cakes and a great lunch. The menu may be small but with all sorts of specials on offer and the coolest interior decor in town it will soon become one of your weekend favourite hotspots as it has ours.

Don’t forget to check out the Bostock Bakery while you’re there, possibly the finest sourdough we’ve ever had (they supply Steampunk).
Bostock Bakery, North BerwickRoss Baxter is the man in charge, shortlisted for Scottish Bakery of the Year, they’ve got our vote.

That’s your weekend sorted. North Berwick is GO.

If you’re not on hipstamatic yet then get to it, your food photography prowess will change for the better!

Plenty more top tips from Lord Loftus over on Jamie Oliver’s FOOD TUBE channel and follow him on Instagram for some mouth watering pics.

And we’ve just found all this lovely stuff we want to share with you. And it mostly consists of drink…..cocktails…..beer…and the occasional mixer. Continue reading

#thebigdinner

We want to give a shout out this week to ‘The Big Dinner’ which is happening on 7th March 2015. It’s about eating, drinking, and socialising, something we do every day, well, maybe not the drinking bit…although Mrs M is still hitting the sherry despite the festive season being well behind us…..

The BIG dinner is a 500 miles initiative to raise £500,000 in a single night to help people with mobility difficulties in Malawi and Zambia to live independent lives. 500 miles provides artificial limbs and braces for people with disabilities of the limbs and spine.

The concept of the BIG dinner is simple Continue reading
