This week, The Pig is mostly…
TAKING over the airwaves! Well, creating a little breeze, at least. Listen to The Pig Guide chatting to Somer Valley FM host Richard Burgess about food, drink and general related silliness every Monday afternoon between 4-6pm or anytime you fancy it via SVFM’s ‘Listen Again’ link (https://www.somervalleyfm.co.uk)
ADDICTED to Thoughtful Bakery’s exceedingly glamorous doughnuts, available to order for Thursday-Saturday collection or home delivery. If you think you know all you need to know about doughnuts, these beauties are poised to rock your world (https://thoughtful-bakery.myshopify.com)
RAISING a glass (or several!) to the Corkage oenophiles who are happy to deliver your choice from their recently updated stellar Off Sales wine menu direct to your doorstep (or you can pick it up from theirs, on Chapel Row.) 10% discount on six bottles or more, free local delivery; email [email protected] for the full lowdown (https://bathecho.uk/3duVRik)
TROTTING along to Widcombe Deli (Widcombe Parade) to pick up takeaway coffee, cakes, quiches and more from 8.30am every morning – welcome back, lovelies! You have been missed (https://jjbeanos.com)
GOING wild in the (nearby) country at Homewood on Thursday evenings, when their Steak Night offers a steak burger, red onion barbecue salsa, crisp pancetta, Bath Blue cheese, tempura onion rings and pimenton salt fries (or a panko halloumi burger with pickled red pepper and courgette relish variation on the theme for the veggies) for just £13pp, all profits from which go to the Holburne Museum and Bath Festivals fundraising initiatives. Orders (for collection only from Homewood between 5-7pm on Thursday) must be placed by Twitter DM (@homewoodbath) or by emailing [email protected] by 4pm on Wednesday.
LOVIN’ the little grey cells workout that is The Grapes virtual pub quiz, every Monday evening at 8pm. Is there a Food and Drink round? Of course there is! Am I hosting it? If that hasn’t given you enough of a clue to work with, you’ll have to DM The Grapes for a Zoom code (@thegrapesbath), join in and find out, won’t you? (https://thegrapesbath.co.uk)
