    Colston Bassett share the secret to success in award winning year

    The festive season is here – and as an avid cheese fiend I thought there was no better time to find out what’s been happening at Colston Bassett Dairy, producer of the world-famous Stilton Cheese. The dairy, based in the Vale of Belvoir, has scooped a string of titles at this year’s World Cheese Awards building on last year’s success. We caught up with manager Billy Kevan to find out what makes Stilton so special…

    How long has Colston Bassett been producing its famous Stilton cheese?
    Established in 1913, Colston Bassett was the idea of the village doctor Dr William Windley. He suggested that local farmers

    Harker’s Farm Shop has everything you need for your Christmas feast

    Christmas is a time for feasting but if you’re anything like me then you’ll dread the thought of battling your way around a crowded supermarket as you stock up for the big day. But at Harker’s Farm Shop, the experience couldn’t be more different. Located in the sleepy hamlet of Clipston-on-the-Wolds in south Nottinghamshire, the shop is surrounded by fields and country lanes and offers a relaxing alternative to the usual Christmas rush.

    My colleague and I visited the farm shop earlier this month to see what was in store for the festive season ahead. After stopping to admire the traditional wreaths and plump, healthy-looking Christmas trees we were met by

    Feeling like a child in a sweet shop at The Treat Kitchen

    Everyone has fond memories of buying sweets as a child. For me it was when I was eventually allowed to go to the shops on my own where I would come back with bags of penny sweets, including flying saucers, jelly strawberries, pear drops, cola bottles and whatever else I could carry.

    Now a Nottingham sweet shop is delighting visitors to the city with its modern take on the traditional sweet shop. The Treat Kitchen, on Wheeler Gate, opened in September and since then it has found fans in the local area as well as far-flung places such as Canada. Alongside traditional sweets you will also find delicate handmade chocolates, locally-made

    Notts Derby Wine School is the pick of the bunch

    Do you know your Pinot Grigio from your Pinot Noirs, or your Rioja from your Bordeaux? What makes a good wine and how can you tell its quality from its look, smell and taste? All was explained in just one evening under the expert tuition of Debbie Ault of the Notts Derby Wine School who took us on a journey exploring the wines of Italy, Spain and Portugal.

    The course took place at Nottingham’s Jury’s Inn Hotel and on arrival we met our ‘course mates’ for the evening, a group with one thing in common: a love of wine. Once introductions were done we were ready to begin tasting the wines.

    I admit to having

    Turning up the heat at Carluccio’s cookery evening

    Cookery is a real passion of mine, and while I don’t profess to be any kind of masterchef, I do like to experiment and try out new things on my ever-willing family!  And as a particular favourite of mine is Italian food, I was the first to put my name down when Carluccio’s in West Bridgford let us know about their cookery school evenings.

    Normally when I announce I’m turning my hand to a brand new recipe, I’m met with a certain amount of trepidation and cold sweats from my other half, but as he rightly pointed out, Carluccio’s would be holding my hand every step of the way – so

    A taste of America hits Nottingham as Missoula opens its doors

    When we found out in the office that The Living Room in Nottingham city centre was to close we wondered just what might replace it? We were told to expect something casual but classy, vibrant and very unique.

    So when Missoula Montana Bar & Grill proudly opened its doors at the end of September we couldn’t wait to give this new bar and restaurant a whirl.

    Our first glimpse of the new Missoula Montana was at the launch party – and we certainly were not disappointed! Fitted out in a ranch style, Missoula Montana most definitely brings a little bit of America to down town Nottingham.

    The party was a great showcase

    Hart’s Restaurant
    Modern, stylish and with a stellar menu, Hart’s is Nottingham’s no. 1 restaurant.

There’s a wide selection of old and new world wines, with some vintage options if you want something really special, and the most delectable desserts – try the hot chocolate
