In Search Of Winter Sun In Egypt

British winters are cold, dark and last for half of the year. Yorkshire winters are colder, darker and longer - well, at least that's how it has seemed to us. This time last year we were travelling through Argentina without a snowflake in sight! Our last snowfall was in early 2013 and we’ve naively forgotten how cold and depressing winter in the UK can be. By January our pasty white faces were desperate for warm sunshine, blue skies and happiness injecting vitamin D. The question was where should we go for some winter sun?

Zucco For Me, Zucco For You

zucco restaurant review leeds

I’ve become a bit of a regular at this quaint Italian and have been meaning to share it with you for months. Zucco offer a winning concept of small Italian sharing plates, each freshly prepared to bring an authentic taste of Italy to North Leeds. It’s exactly my kind of dining experience, I'm always filled with food envy at dinner and will always take you up on that offer of a bite. This is tapas done the Italian way, think small-ish dinner plates bursting with big Mediterranean flavours. And not a tiny terracotta bowl in sight.
