Round Up 3

Fri 29 Sept 2006

While I'm a little behind with actual entries (stay tuned for news of the York Festival Food and Drink, Georgetown - a Malaysian restaurant in Leeds, and a plum crumble) I figure it's time for a weekly round up ...

Firstly, BabyCream (restaurant and bar) on the Headrow has closed down ... and is to reopen as Wildcats ... apparently this is going to be a venue which is licensed for 'controlled entertainment' ... who knows what this will be?!

On Monday night the Park Plaza Hotel (on Boar Lane) hosts a tasting of Portuguese wines ... tickets are £7.50 (£5 concession) and are available from wine merchants and the tourist office down by the train station. This is also a charity night, in aid of the Jane Tomlinson Appeal.

Continuing on with the charity theme (sorry, not food related), Tom Keeber will be cycling the Great Wall of China in November to raise money for the Princes Trust.

Back to food - don't forget that the Leeds' farmer's market takes place again this Sunday.

Also, a recent comment raised the question of organic food boxes. While I haven't personally used a box scheme, I know that Low Leases Organic Farm operates a one. Their website is pretty comprehensive, but they are also usually at the farmer's market. As an alternative, Abel & Cole run a box scheme which delivers pretty much UK wide. And ... for a proper search, check out VegBox Schemes. If anyone has any feedback (good or bad!) about a box scheme ... let us know!

And finally, random blog of the week is Kitchen Wench. It's a well organised site with piles and piles of recipes and foodie links!
