Taste the Love is popping up all over the city, so keep an eye on this page to see where I have been and where you can come and enjoy a Taste the Love food experience.
Upcoming Ticketed Kitchen Takeovers
I am excited to bring you a collaboration with The Sardanistas at Palate on July 31st.
If you have not heard of The Sardanistas, you should. They are purveyors of the finest Portuguese produce, taking trips back and forth to Portugal to procure the finest ingredients.
They want to showcase the amazing array of food you can create with the finest portuguese canned fish, so I am teaming up with them to create a menu designed around their fantastic sustainable conservas, straight from the seas of Portugal.
On the menu will be an array of petiscos (Portuguese tapas!) and Palate will be curating fantastic Portuguese cocktails and wines for the evening.
You can get your tickets on Eventbrite or through me. If you cannot wait until the end of July for this exciting popup, you can find them at Altrincham Market
Keep your eyes peeled for more information on my pop up for Manchester Food and Drink Festival in October, more info coming soon! In the meantime, head to The Wonder Inn the last Thursday of the month for vegan sharing plates and live music.

Past Pop Ups
I gave all of my guests homemade Cavolo Nero pesto for them to take home and make life tasty. See how to make your own pesto here
Trove Kitchen Take Over
Taste the Love took Feel Good Food to Levenshulme. It was a fantastic space, great crowd and felt such a breeze, I will be back there for sure!
I like to give my guests a little something to take home with them, see what I gave them here
Proper Tea Pop Up
This was such a beautiful venue to work in. Situated in the heart of the city with fantastic views of the Cathedral, this venue deserved a decadent menu to suit the surroundings. See Proper Tea’s website for more information on the array of tea and spot on cakes that they create.
A fatastic four course meal with a tasty surprise treat when the guests arrived, no wonder I got such a fantastic review from the wonderful folks at I Love Manchester , it really was something something special.
Check out the recipe for sweet potato and bacon bread everyone couldn’t stop talking about here
North Star in Piccadilly Basin & Chorlton
This was my first venue into Feel Good Food and where the idea all started. We all want tasty food but who says tasty food can’t also be good for you. Eating all of the colours and bringing sunshine to your plate is what my food is all about.
Guests were greeted with a rhubarb and electric daisy cocktail before being treated to a wonderful four course meal of colour, taste and beautiful flowers. They were even given a selection of edible flower seeds to take home and grow themselves.
See how to make your own Rhubarb and electric daisy cocktail here.. beware, it’s explosive!
The event took place over two days, one at North Star in PIccadilly Basin and one in their Chorlton Branch. Feeding over 50 people was such fun and from the guests reaction they love it too!
Persian Pleasures at Cherry Tree Cafe Chorlton
What a flavour explosion this pop up was, again taking place over two evenings, guests were treated to flavours of the exotic and it was a complete sell out.
All the guests got to take a mini pot of harrissa home with them along with tahini biscuits, see how to make your own harissa here
