If Snowkings has been on a diet, or enjoying the occasional tipple, this is the place to find out...

December 2016

  • Glühwein, Vin Chaud, Glögg, Mulled Win, call it what you want, we've literally been drowning in the stuff since the end of November.
  • Chateaubriand. Had it at a pre-Christmas meal at Hassop Hall in the Peak District. Wow ! What a cut of meat that is.
  • Jack Daniel's Winter Jack - a nice alternative to the aforementioned list of Glühweins.

November 2016

  • Must be real ale month - just discovered Golden Sheep from the Black Sheep Brewery. Rather refreshing.
  • Cheese and beetroot sandwiches.
  • Health alert - Melons with yoghurt.
  • Sharp's Atlantic draught ale. Wow - what a beer !

October 2016

  • Leffe Blond. With a slice of lemon in it.
  • Corn on the cob with lots of black pepper. And some salt.
  • Greggs sausage rolls. True, not exactly healthy. But certainly tasty.
  • Erdinger Kristall. It doesn't seem quite right having a clear wheat beer, but you can't argue with that taste.

September 2016

  • Beefeater steaks. A Snowking-er had a 10 quid flat-iron that tasted better than a 20 quid one at the gastro-pub opposite.
  • Toasties and Paninis. The birthday panini machine is out. Creates toasties like you get on the continent. So this month it's Croque Monsieur's all the way...
  • Blue Moon. With a slice of orange in it. Whoever thinks Americans can't make beer obviously hasn't looked passed a bottle of Bud Lite.
