I think that I’ve stumbled upon the best kept secret in Inverness – The Lotus Blossom Cafe run by the Scottish Highlands & Islands and Moray Chinese Association! (This post is not an ad).
After a beautiful day enjoying the short heatwave that hit Scotland at the end of last week, we spent our Friday night enjoying the finest local vegan cooking around courtesy of a new monthly Supper Club in Inverness.
I’m a big fan of meeting local food producers (remember my Orkney series?) Well, I’m excited today to share a new organisation for Inverness and the surrounding areas – a new way of doing your weekly food shop!
Going to Thai Dining was a long awaited treat for us. We had heard several good reports about this new Thai family run restaurant, so much so that every time we passed it, I would always drop an atom-bomb sized “I’ve heard this place is lovely…” comment to Mr B. Six months (no joke!) later, we…
Way back in November, we took a short trip to Aberdeen which included trips (yes multiple) to Mad Penguin – an artisan gelateria and coffeehouse which had opened recently. Despite launching in the winter months, Aberdonians were going mad for gelato! It was amazing, leaving us reminiscing about Italian holidays where we had enjoyed various flavours of…

At the end of November I was invited to review the newly refurbished Snow Goose Inn in Inverness. I took along my Let’s Bake buddy Kirsty for an evening of food in Vintage Inn‘s mostly northerly Inn!

We covered seven nautical miles on our trip, which lasted 75 minutes. We arrived at Inverness Marina, where there are a large number of boats moored.
The Little Teapot was brought to my attention recently as a new-ish place for a local lunch which has opened in the Victorian Market in Inverness. My friend Elizabeth of Capability Browns supplies some of her delicious bakes there so we thought we’d take a look during a trip into town recently.
Last night was another Let’s Bake Inverness event, and in preparation for Real Bread Week (taking place next week) our theme was Dough! Any yeasted or other bread product was very welcome. I enjoy making all kinds of bread but wanted to try my hand at something new, so opted to make some doughnuts in…
