It’s that time of the year again when the agricultural shows abound and that can only mean one thing – it’s nearly time for the International Cheese Awards!
The awards take place in Nantwich on the 28th July with the public show being on the 29th as part of the bigger Nantwich Show.
When I won a little Instagram comp from Gran Luchito, I was sat on a train at the time and may have done a little smug fist bump to myself! Anyway a few days later they send me a parcel of their smoky Mexican goodies.
When we planned a trip to London the set lunch from Fera at Claridge’s was too good an opportunity to miss. We are both fans of chef Simon Rogan so were keen to give it a go without breaking the bank.
I don’t think I’ve ever been to Claridge’s before and it really is special. The foyer is all Art Deco loveliness with an abundance of fresh flowers and a quiet old school air of luxury. We were directed the entrance of Fera and I had to laugh. As a fan of Twin Peaks, the tiny entrance area with red curtains immediately made me think of the Red Room of Agent Cooper’s dreams! Bizarre as it was so unlike both the hotel and the restaurant.
