Tortilla UK opens this month

A new Mexican-inspired restaurant will be opening in Bournemouth later this month on the site previously owned by Oasis clothing. Tortilla UK has been serving Burritos and tacos in the UK since 2007 but this is set to be the first in Dorset.


Westbourne welcome Bigwig's

Great news for residents of Westbourne - Bigwigs Bakery has just opened following on from the success of their Tuckton shop, owners and  best friends Tom & Dom have opened their second shop. I've yet to try it but if Tuckton is anything to go by it will be a great success.


The Alresford Watercress Festival

One of my favourite festivals is coming up - The Alresford Watercress Festival is on 15th May. Expect to see celebrity tv chef Lesley Waters & Masterchef champion Shelina Permaloo along side other local chefs in the demo kitchen. Plenty of entertainment by way of music and the usual great quality food stalls.

Of course if you fancy yourself as a watercress eating champion get yourself signed up to join the competition on the main stage.


Christchurch Cheese and Chilli Fesitival

Christchurch Cheese and Chilli festival  returns on the 28th & 29th May for its 8th year.  The popular two day festival will once again be supported by some of the uk's leading growers, makers and manufactures of cheese and cilli related products.
