1st of 3 pop-up events planned this Spring!

This spring will see my first ever pop-up restaurant taking place in the city centre of Nottingham.

This is the 1st of 3 pop-ups’ planned at the same venue, a smart, quirky boutique shop in the Nottingham based in and around the famous lace market. Debbie Bryan offers the best of contemporary design whilst maintaining a pride in Nottingham’s rich textile heritage. Since opening the shop in 2009, Debbie has been working with inspiring thinkers to create memorable creative experiences and to develop unique products that are inspired by British heritage and our in-house Lace Archive.

A fabulous 6 course menu has been planned for the evening with focus on flavour and creating a relaxed, comfortable informal dining area for the evening.

Using local suppliers and producers as usual with all my events, I always seek the best ingredients I can get my hands on and always challenge these fantastic suppliers to do the same which they never fail to do.

There are still a couple of tables left for this exciting event that is not to be missed for all food lovers and their friends

Tokyo to Toba – bullet train,mount Fiji, bonito shop, Shinto shrine 

We left Tokyo in style travelling on the world famous bullet train. With speeds of over 150mph it certainly wouldn’t take us long to get to our destination of Nagoya.  

   
With beautiful scenery all around us as we travelled to the Japanese countryside something suddenly stud out as we were shooting along! Mount Fuji!!  

   
It was a lovely clear day so we quite a decent view, however snow on the top meant that we could not see its peak of over 3000 meters. 

We arrived in Nagoya to be greeted by our hosts from Toba city who would be looking after us all day  

 
We headed off to Ise shima for lunch specialising in conga eel then onto the number 1 Shinto shrine in the Ise region to say our wishes for someone else in our life’s.  

   
Ise grand shrine, Shinto temple and amazing Japanese gardens  

   
We then visited an original bonito shop where they produce the very best bonito to go into the making of dashi.  

   
Set on the sea front woth amazing views
