Going west – Manchester to Vegas

July 6, 2016 7:37 am

Join me on an adventure to Las Vegas, flying from Manchester. We’ll have a wee on a plane and eat a James Martin fly food. We’ll then land, hire a car, drive up Las Vegas strip, check in to the MGM Grand hotel, have a wonder, eat at the buffet and go sleepy by ready for a day of adventures tomorrow!

Some kind of adventure outside into the blue, a glorious place of regenerative and loving warmth.

Some kind of ranty update after a bit of being super poorly and realising the other way.

Meeting Warm

May 24, 2016 9:23 am

I enjoy the warm. I enjoy that gloriousness of getting stuck to your chair, that first dribble of sweat down your back, that stingy burn starting to sizzle on your arms. I’ve always adored the uncomfortableness of warmth. Many unfortunate people around me have been forced to indure ‘Holiday Recreation’ which is basically sitting in the car on a warm ish day (smaller the car the better) with the heater on full and windows rammed shut. I always sat in cars abroad looking at the temperature gauge, wishing, persuading…begging it to go above 100. Flips flops melting to your feet,...

Slooooooow bbq beef ribs.

May 16, 2016 10:22 am

This cut of meat is going to go the way of pork belly and lamb shanks (expensive) get in there quick whilst it’s cheap. If you adore your meat gloriously moist, sticky and smooth you will adore the beef rib. If you enjoy dry meat, you’re in the wrong place. There is only way to go with the beef rib, very very long and slow. More intense fans may remember the vlog ages ago with the sous vide experiments. Can a single day cook in a low oven with a finish on the BBQ yield as tasty results? We start...

Nothing in Iceland

May 10, 2016 7:27 pm

This isn’t a write up, a travel guide or anything you should follow if you have landed here looking for Iceland related things. Loads of people are doing that really ace, so I’ll do something else. I’m drawing a line under the bizarre conditions about how I ended up here and won’t even go into any depth about how I spent an hour in a police station in Reykjavik…it’s not what I want to ramble to you about. I don’t actually know what I want to ramble about. I think it’s the nothing… I’m not saying here is nothing, there...

Berlin changed my world

May 2, 2016 6:04 pm

My brain had hit the end of it’s tether. I snapped, broke and found myself on a plane to Berlin. Tired of hashtags, of properness and of #business being done in a way I just don’t agree with, well not agree with, but in a way that I just dont want to be part of. I was trying to fight it, I was really trying hard to show this other way, but you know what, it’s really tiring and can be really brain lonely…there is another way… Again, I’ll try not bore of you of the other way, but it’s...
