Is it a whisky, is it a bourbon, no – it’s Valt Vodka

I had heard of Valt Vodka a few weeks back but didn’t want to throw down £25-£30 on a rash buy. Well I went round round the Scottish Trade Fair on Sunday as a recce mission for future exhibiting and I spotted their stand. Disciplined I wandered round the rest of the food section before […]

I have been kind of swamped lately so haven’t been updating this much. What hasn’t helped is I used to think oh post that up and expand in a blog post. I find myself compressing things into Twitter instead. So random media etc I have been enjoying over the last wee while: Films and TV […]

This morning I was digging through old posts, spotting errors etc when I noticed one about Blackwoods going into administration. It appears they have licenced their vodka to Blavod I […]

Curry and Enchiladas

Saturday nights tea was another attempt at home made curry from scratch. Unfortunately we had not separated the chicken breasts before freezing them so I had to defrost the whole pack. I now had to make a monster curry. It was an improvement on before, sweeter and not as runny sauce but it still wasn’t […]

Making a Meal of it

I decided to do something with the pile of cookbooks we have acquired and made a couple of new dishes. Quesedillas One of the great starters we had in Mexico was quesedillas. These generally had chicken, cheese and salsa in them. Cooked on a hotplate, basically a Mexican version of Cheese on toast. Having checked […]

Victory is Mine!

Yesterday I was walking up from Morningside to Marchmont and saw a fancy booze shop. Saw Blackwoods vodka in window, ooooh! Unfortunately it was £19! Outrageous but also, I later found out, discontinued. Crossed road and spotted Oddbins. Cogs started wheelin’ so I popped in. Spotted a lone Reyka vodka reduced to £16.19. How many […]
