Phew, we’re back after a hectic couple of weeks. That unforgiving mistress “work” has been interfering with our wine, food and gadget consumption. We have managed a few treats over the last two weeks though.
The Gadget Show Live
Myself and ITs Food Jnr attended The Gadget Show Live at The NEC last week. It was a really great day out and was absolutely packed out! What Credit Crunch?? Here are a few of the highlights…
Some Nice Wine
Whilst travelling on business I stayed at a relatively nice hotel for a couple of nights. One night I was sat with some colleagues at the hotel restaurant and was asked to choose the wine. I ended picking up The Stump Jump GSM red from d’Arenberg Wines (Grenache (50%) / Shiraz (29%) / Mourvedre (21%) blend). Initially I wasn’t sure but by the second glass I was really appreciating the lovely smooth blend. If I can find a bottle I’ll review it here.
The Fat Duck
Yes, we’ve been back for our 3rd visit. I’ll post a full review soon but here are a few highlights…
- Over £200 per head again (as predicted)
- Amazing Zinfandel wine
- Sound Of The Sea – Is it any good?
- Better or Worse than our last visit?
- Which member of the ITs Food family got a little too merry…?
