Street food is becoming increasingly popular around the world, giving people the chance to taste authentic specialities and experience local culture. In Europe, there are numerous sweet and savoury delicacies to choose from in each city and country, but here’s a selection of our favourites from around the continent.
Christmas is but a distant memory, the cupboards once overflowing with tubs of Quality Street and boxes of biscuits now sit hollow, with a sheet of dust forming on their shelves. But hey, we’re in a new decade. 2020. TWENTY-TWENTY! It may sound cool but, even so, a new decade doesn’t change the fact that January is quite frankly a drag. Colds and other viruses fly around, mere pennies sit in our bank accounts, rain falls relentlessly at times, dark mornings greet us and dark evenings draw in too early.
Let’s face it, we all check a restaurant’s Instagram before we go there. And we’ve all had a cheeky look at Ella Woodward’s page after buying her Protein Balls because it’s just become second nature to refer to someone or somethings Instagram out of pure and utter curiosity. This is why having an up-to-date and attractive page has become an important part of running a business. It can be daunting and seem like a lot of work, but with this list of 20 must-do’s, it’ll be a breeze and you can always call on the expert services of us beans (#shamelessplug #sorrynotsorry).
If you’ve spent any time in the food and hospitality industry you will have come across Hospitality Action. Whether it’s boots on the ground charity spadework or mixing with the great and the good at black tie events, they are a constant presence and a force for good in the industry.
Christmas means different things to different people. For some, it’s about entertaining family, friends and relatives, for others in foodservice it can be their busiest time for year in the kitchen, or in some cases it can sadly mean loneliness. But, the one thing that’s true for all that it gives us an opportunity to reflect. They say the greatest gift you can give someone is your time, so off the back of a successful #JBC12Days of Giving last year, naturally it only seemed right to do it all again for 2019. This year I already knew I wanted to give my time to a charity I was passionate about. With a 15-year equestrian background myself (mum says I was horse riding before I was walking!), I was lucky enough to come across Windsor Horse Rangers, and my decision was made.
