I maybe in the minority but I’ve always loved January. You get six days of Christmas at the beginning, the nights start getting lighter bit by bit and I celebrate my birthday on the 31st.
This year I seem to have lots more exciting things to look forward to:
- An artisan patisserie course at the Handmade Bakery, Slaithwaite where I’ll be learning how to make croissants and other viennoiserie.
- Dinner at the Manor, a West Leeds supperclub, for a Thomasina Miers inspired Mexican feast.
- Cafe Nouveau at Home is one year old and we’ll be celebrating with a retro afternoon tea – yes there will even be jelly and ice-cream.
- A foodie trip to London with lunch at The Pollen Social Club, wine and cheese at Gordon’s wine bar and afternoon tea at L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon.
It’s going to be a great month!
