Autumn is one of my favourite seasons; the clocks go back and there’s a glut of festivities from Halloween and Bonfire Night to Diwali and even Christmas begins to creep in (I’ve been spotting the Christmas trees going up in Brum all week). This month has been particularly special as I got to witness the marriage of two wonderful people and I’m looking forward to trying out the wedding favours.
It has also been a busy one for Birmingham, with Bodega on Bennets Hill announcing a new little sister in Worcester, Bearwood’s very first food festival courtesy of the Bearwood Pantry and a talk by the Vegan Society for the Birmingham Humanists.
I’ve also been out on lots of food adventures with write ups from my experience of DIP, a Lebanese stall in the Bullring, to cocktails at The Edgbaston and dinner at Tiger Bills, located just off Broad St. I even managed to give New Covent Garden’s soup of the month another try with it being aptly named Pumpkin Ghoulash.
And with the festive season upon us, Area Guide kindly published an article I wrote about drinks relating to Halloween, Bonfire Night and Dia de los Muertos and I followed it up with a post about some spooktacular cocktails at Cherry Reds. And just as the month was coming to an end I managed to fit in a taste of Christmas, with Starbucks in Selfridges bringing their red cups in early.
I’m always keen to hear from people about places I should check out, products to try and exciting food and drink related adventures. So if you fancy emailing me, please do.
