Editor's Picks - World Cup Food and Bloody Marys

Hello everyone, Emma here with my editor’s picks. Hope everyone is enjoying the summer, here are a few gems that I have been reading on the web this week.


Bloody Mary’s - they really are the marmite of cocktails, you either love them or you hate them. I used to hate them, going so far as to call them ‘spaghetti bolognese in a glass’. That is until recently (I think my tastebuds have matured!). Here is a great basic recipe for a bloody mary but you could go really crazy and add anything from pickles and prawns to bacon and jalapeños - the options are endless!

Since everyone has been World Cup crazy the past few weeks, I thought I’d share with you one of our Manchester food bloggers - Shaun aka Food Geek’s articles, World Cup Challenge 2014 – 32 Dishes. 32 Countries. 32 Days! Shaun committed to cooking and eating a dish from every country playing in the World Cup - what a cool idea! Check out his 32 dishes, ending of course with Bratwurst with Sauerkraut, Chicken Schnitzel and Pretzels from Germany!

Song of the Summer

Jubel by Klingande - this tune is the epitome of a summer hit! Every time it comes on it just makes me think of relaxing in the sun! enjoy (preferably with a bloody mary).
