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 don’t have any upcoming pop ups in the calendar at the moment. Keep checking in here, or sign up for my newsletter for the latest Pop Up & Supper Club news.
Past Pop Ups
Taste the Love is back, this time at RedbankCo! If you have not been, it is a little hidden gem, tucked away under the arches in The Green Quarter. What first began as photographic studio has organically evolved over time to a creative, quirky exciting space.
A four course seasonal menu is available for £25 per head. Bright, colourful and full of flavour, ready to put a spring in your step.
Expect an evening of delicious, nutritious, extravagance at this exciting kitchen takeover.
On the Menu:
As part of the Manchester Food and Drink Festival I teamed up with my fabulously talented brother to create an evening revolving around charcuterie and beer from the Runaway Brewery. Luke brought a selection of charcuterie that he and his team at Hartnett Holder and Co cure in the heart of the New Forest. It was such a fabulous experience to cook with him professionally for the first time.
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 showcased their amazing array of food that you can create with the finest portuguese canned fish, I teamed up with them to create a menu designed around their fantastic sustainable conservas, straight from the seas of Portugal.
You can find them at Altrincham Market.
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
