Quality, fresh, delicious and Gluten-Free

GFBarca.jpgI'm spending a few days in Barcelona at the Mobile World Congress. The city swells by 57,000 people from the Mobile Telcoms World, but the city handles it well.  High on the list for all the visitors is to sample the local tapas whilst drinking a coupe of Cava to recover from the full-on business that has taken place during the day.  My favourite place of all times is Bar Xampanyet.

That was the Halloween that was

gfhalloweensmall.jpgWe're in full recovery from the Halloween party on Saturday night. It was an evening of two halves. First half was fast and furious - a blur of little witches running around at knee height, communal pumpkin carving and tortilla rolling. Prior to the trick or treat tour, we fuelled the kids up with mini portions of pumpkin soup, chillie and tortillas and fingers of fudge, and chocolate buttons. The adults had chicken wings and drinks.

Rick Stein's Far Eastern Odyssey

So I was watching episode two of Rick Stein's cooking series, salivating like a Labrador pup! but Oh what a lucky man! not only does he get to sample some of the world's most exciting flavours, but he gets to go night fishing for squid AND he is escorted by the most attractive and energetic guides! Jealous moi? surely not!
