Weekly Eats 13th May

Eat Food Sorcery

If anything the pace of my eating exploits has intensified despite my good intentions to diet. However I’m pleased to report that I have lost a pound, so I must have made some decent food choices.

So let me talk you through the week:

Monday Lunch: chicken and avocado salad from Pret, starting the week on a healthy note.  It was super delicious actually.

Tuesday Evening: I went to a Cracking Good Food talk about tackling food waste and we were treated to homemade coconut and butternut squash soup and a gorgeous freshly baked very oniony and moist focaccia.  I must must learn how to succesfully make focaccia.

Wednesday Lunch: I was out and about in Didsbury and had a tremendous cheese board at Wine and Wallop.

Wednesday Evening: Jamie Oliver’s butternut squash curry.  One of the best things I’ve eaten all year.  A lot of coconut milk gave a very creamy melt in the mouth flavour.

Thursday Lunch: I went to This and That in the Northern Quarter for the very first time.  Whilst it’s not high end dining, three vegetarian curries and rice for £3.90 is not something to argue with.  I enjoyed the food and the communal eating vibe – it’s fun.

Friday Evening: I was invited to a ‘Cooking Together With The Chef’ evening at Food Sorcery in Didsbury.  The delightful chef Jason Palin helped us cook fish tacos, peri peri chicken and beetroot and chickpea salad with baklava for pudding.  It was such a lively, interesting night, helped along with some tasty prosecco and wine.

Saturday Lunch: I met a friend at Earth Cafe in the Buddhist Centre in the Northern Quarter. Huge quantities of veggie food for just £7, my plate was piled with dal, sweet potato pie, plantain fritter and beetroot salad.  Tasty! And I loved the chilled out vibe of the place.
