Italian Fashion on our high street!

Italian Fashion on our high street!

Katie, the owner of Shoenique, which is on the high street in Scarborough has so much love for the brand, and it shows. Listening to Katie’s story, which she tells with pride, energy, and emotion, is lovely. She has a “passion for fashion”, the Italian style is apparent, it's classy, elegant and stunning. The shop is beautiful and designed well, the visual merchandising is creative, eye-catching, and fresh with colour. The customer service here is excellent, nothing is too much trouble, and it’s easy to see why Katie has so much support from her many loyal customers. The business is…

Race the Waves – Bridlington 2022

Race the Waves – Bridlington 2022

Race the Waves at Bridlington is the brainchild of Paul Garbutt, who had previously produced classic motorcycle social gatherings under his event name BACKFIRE Feel the Noise... Paul inspired by the world famous (TROG) "The Race of Gentleman" which has been held annually since 2012 on the Wildwoods beach in New Jersey USA, contacted Joe the "Staging Boss" which is the person who brings the vehicles to the start line, to help aid the formula which Paul wished to create for Race the Waves in Bridlington.

Summer Bulgar Wheat Salad

Summer Bulgar Wheat Salad

This is my go to recipe that cooks in one pan, sits happily in the fridge and is perfect for those quick fridge raid lunches in the summer months. It's cheap, tasty and will pair with most things, feel free to add leftover chicken from your roast, sliced ham or as you see here - a dollop of hummus, pita and salad. The feta is optional but well worth it! Ingredients: 4oog Can/tin of Chickpeas 200g Tomatoes (cherry preferably) 1tsp Ground Cumin 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon 200g Bulgar Wheat 400ml chicken/veg stock 2 Tbsp Harissa Paste Parsley to garnish Method…

The Forum: A Premier Entertainment Venue on the Yorkshire Coast

The Forum: A Premier Entertainment Venue on the Yorkshire Coast

I must confess I thought I knew all that The Forum had to offer - I've visited the Cinema often and been tempted by a round of 10-pin-bowling a time or two. The Lodge Restaurant looks pretty tempting as well. But it was only after meeting John and Danny, the managers of the complex that I really took in all that this amazing venue has to offer. A family could quite easily spend a whole day here - its the perfect all-weather, all-age entertainment venue. Let's start with the Cinema, there's three screens - it's the only multi-screen cinema on…

Thai (Yorkshire) Crab Cakes

Thai (Yorkshire) Crab Cakes

This might be a Thai recipe but as we're generally using Yorkshire Crab I'm adding it to the title. I've had this recipe on a scrap of paper for years - its got splats all-over it from the many times I've used it. I think it originally came from Nigel Slater so I suppose I should give him a mention. What I love about this is how simple it is - it's one of those 'bung everything in a blender together and whiz' recipes - you can't go wrong as long as you are using good quality fresh ingredients. You…
