Framptons – tanks of beer 🍻

Had a wonderful evening drink in Framptons (@framptonsbath). Great beers and a tasty looking menu. They’ve got two giant tanks above the bar. The barman explained that’s where the beer is stored. It’s brought in a tanker and pumped up there. One of only a few places in the UK. The decor is very cool and there’s a view of the weir and the beautiful Pulteney Bridge. It’s a great place to spend the evening 😀🍻

Warming tea in the country

It’s a bit chilly out today. Had some very warming and tasty green tea with lavender @castlefarmcafe. What a lovely cafe in the countryside with lovely valley views. Plus they have a great new little farm shop.

Hot cross buns in November, yes please!

My friend made some totally delicious hot cross buns. She accidentally ordered far too much fresh yeast. So all week has frantically been baking anything and everything. They were delicious and so much fresher, lighter and with a subtle and tasty christmasy kind of spice. Wow!

Noya’s Kitchen supper club 😀🇻🇳

I had an amazing meal and experience @noyaskitchen. The food was delicious and also Noya was great fun. Full of zeal and zest for life. Thank you tasty food and a great night. 

1) minced pork with mint, black fungus and vegetables in pancake and wrapped up in lettuce. With a very spicy and delicious dipping sauce. I got stuck in and got very messy. 

2) one of the best noodle soups I’ve ever had. So so tasty. The broth was delicious and spicy. Super tender beef. 

3) wonderful chicken curry and rice. 

4) cake with coconut mouse with mango sauce. The best bit by far was the Vietnamese coffee ice cream. I’d have just been happy with that. It was to die for! Thank you again Noya 😀🇻🇳

❤️ Kimchi 😀🌶️

Absolutely delicious Bath Culture House. I love this kimchi. I’m not a vegan, nor vegetarian, but this to me tastes just as good as the fishy/prawny versions. I use it as a condiment with so many dishes. It’s sour, tangy and spicy. Everything I read about kimchi says how healthy it is. It’s simply great! 😀🌶️

Simple fishy 🎏

So simple, so quick, so easy. Sprats – dust in flour and shallow fry in vegetable a few minutes each side. I eat them whole and they’re delicious. You can cut their heads off and gut them if you prefer but it is fiddly 😍🐟

Pumpkin pasta 🎃🍝

What to do with leftover pumpkin? It’s ravioli time! I hadn’t made it for. Dusted off my Woolworths pasta maker. Used a Jamie Oliver recipe for the pasta. Then fried chopped pumpkin in butter with onions, garlic, splash of wine and herbs until turned into tasty mush. Let it cool and made ravioli. I also made some tagliatelle with the leftover pasta. Boiled them up for a few minutes. Then popped them in a pan with melted butter and sage. Covered them in parmesan. Totally totally delicious 😀🎃🍝
