It should be a crime to spend a Sunday in a stressful manner.

I like a Sunday to be as lazy and as relaxed as possible, spent with my most favourite people, Mr LouBou, the half pint and the squishee. So when an invitation pops in my mailbox for the whole family to check out Rev de Cuba’s latest food menus, it’s a no-brainer for a family Sunday lunch-type situation.

Can they really satisfy a family meal over some of the heavily branded family restaurants that share the same postcode? 


You know me, I love food. So, naturally events like MK Feast are right up my street. A celebration of local food, drink and independent traders from MK. Today at Bradwell Abbey I pulled up a straw bale, soaked up the atmosphere with the live music – oh, and demolished a whole load of tasty grub along with hundreds of other visitors.
