Here’s a collection of everything from immersive courses, incredible places to eat out or have delectation delivered, gadgets, gizmos and creative artistry.
None of these links are affiliate links, we either have, use, would love or have been to these wonderful places.
FOOD TO ENJOY
A selection of ideas for those who love to eat out or eat in.
One of the most incredible seasonal menus we reckon you will find in the UK (and we’ve eaten in some amazing restaurants), we’ve dreamt about the Oak all through lock-down and cannot wait to return to the beautiful city of Bath to immerse our senses in another incredible meal. The whole menu is plant-based; embrace this because otherwise, you will be the one missing out.
Closer to home for us and with restaurants through the north-west of the UK, wonderful flavours and one of the funniest Twitter feeds from head chef Gary Usher (yes you needed to know that). Enjoy delicious food that caters for everyone either in the restaurant or we’ve had some of the recipe boxes at home through lockdown and they are fantastic.
Holly tree kitchen
Treat yourself or a friend to these heavenly creations all delivered to your door.
Holly creates the most divine vegan and allergy-friendly desserts perfect for your festive table.
Mrs Hollingsworth AKA Emma creates a range of granola, sweets and treats
and cakes that are all vegan and would make the perfect gift for someone wishing to try out veganuary.
