Quick one for fellow LCFC season ticket holders.

Earlier in the season chef Chris at Leicester’s fantastic Crafty Burger made a rash promise of free burgers if we won the premier league  – and he’s now working on exactly how he’s going to make good on that.

In the meantime, Byron in Highcross have also taken this step and are giving free burgers on production of your season ticket from today until 5pm on Monday 16th May.

“This is Byron’s way of repaying the fans for their loyal support throughout the season said manager Vicky. “You can’t escape the buzz in the city and we are really keen to continue the celebrations in the best way we know how – with free proper hamburgers. We’re looking forward to welcoming a sea of blue coming through our doors throughout this weekend.”

There’s a few t&cs (not takeaway or Deliveroo, no extra toppings, subject to availability etc) but a nice gesture to celebrate the Greatest Sporting Achievement of All Time.

In this most marvellous, historic week for our city and county I’m delighted to announce that the Leicestershire and Rutland Cookbook is now available!

Published by specialist cookbook publishers Meze, it’s the latest in a series of regional cookbooks that celebrates local restaurants, food producers, delis, markets, brewers and more. In each case Meze works with a local food writer (in this case me!) to capture the spirit of each business and create profiles along with superb photography and recipes supplied from each business.

It’s been a great project for me to be involved in – giving the chance to meet and talk with many of the most passionate, creative and committed food  people in the region. The 192-page book  features  over 30 great businesses from the city centre  to rural Rutland – many of whom have been featured in this blog over the years as well as some new arrivals and older busineses that were new to me.

The book really does look beautiful and I hope is a good read as well as a storehouse of recipes. It is priced £14.95 and is available from all the businesses featured. Have a look a around for it and if you are interested please buy from them.  It should also be available from Waterstone’s and online ordering soon too for those outside the county.
