Food and booze news

All sorts happening over Easter and beyond to get the tastebuds tingling

Published on January 14th 2010.

Food and booze news

Bread and wine
Paul Heathcote has designed a special menu for diners at his Olive Press restaurant in Liverpool this Easter weekend.

Taking inspiration from the Feeding of the Five Thousand, the new menu is based around fish, bread and wine.

Dishes at the Castle Street restaurant will include sun dried tomato crusted tuna; char grilled peppers & aubergines, deep mozzarella fritter and Grilled Swordfish with chorizo sausage, chilli & red onion tagliatelle.

But don't forget it's 50 per cent off all pasta and pizza dishes every Sunday and Monday throughout April for Liverpool Confidential readers. As that rate, they will be feeding 5,000. Click here for the offer.

The Last Supper
Meanwhile if Paul Heathcote can do it, so can we. Liverpool Confidential has come up with its own Easter menu, straight from the Toby calvary, to be served at Confidential Towers over the break.

Mount of Olives
Lava bun and holy toast

In the beginning
Prawn again crustaceans
Twice-risen bread

The gift of tongue
Eggs Pope Benedict
Hands of cod
Lettuce prey

To finish
Passion cake
Forbidden fruit
The baby cheeses

Still or sparkling?
DESPITE the name, we can't accuse those running Liverpool's Static Gallery of letting the grass grow under their feet.

As the Leaf Tea Shop moved out of the former-warehouse-turned-exhibition-space in Roscoe Street, a new coffee shop has opened selling, well, coffee obviously, but also a range of soups, sandwiches, panini, handmade chocolates and homemade cakes – so you can still get some tart with your art.

The gallery has 10 studio spaces inhabited by artists, modelmakers, designers and more. The Static Coffee Bar does vegan, dairy and gluten-free so whatever your diet, they do it. And, usefully, they have wi-fi and sockets to plug your laptop into.Reds' letter day
LIVERPOOL FC defender Jamie Carragher may not have a lot to celebrate so far this week but it's not stopped him getting into the party mood.

His Cafe Sports outlets in Stanley Street and Liverpool One are now

offering a children's party package ideal for birthdays, Christenings, communions and school outings.

For £7.75, each child gets a two-course meal, entertainment on screens, a visit from the Cafe Sports mascot Sporty Star and more. Like a personalised, signed Jamie Carragher birthday card, which is great unless, perhaps, you happen to be a little boy blue (or girl).

Little gem
THE Slug and Lettuce in North John Street has lined up some eggcellent (their appallingly bad joke, not ours, for a change) offers on food over the Easter period and they promise NO molluscs in the lollo rosso.

On Sunday you can get a three-course meal (what about king prawn cocktail, Sunday roast and black forest gateau?) for a tenner. And on Easter Monday it's 50 per cent off the food.

Roman pilgrimage
Chester Food and Drink Festival is in full swing, if you need to get out of the city, and restaurants and bars are running key events, special eating offers, tastings in delis and off licenses, food markets and a whole range of activities around the outside of the Easter Taste weekend at Chester Racecourse.

All sorts of food and drink jiggery pokery is planned, including demonstrations and seminars from chefs such as Simon Rimmer, Michael Caines, whose Chester Abode is opening next year, Paul Askew, from the London Carriage Works, Brian Mellor, Lotte Duncan and Mike Robinson.

Other events will include a large food producers' market, showcasing the area's impressive variety of home grown grub, from cheeses, meat products, fruit, vegetables, ice cream, shrimps, salmon and cider to homemade chocolates and preserves. The main concourse housing the exhibitors will be surrounded by a food court featuring Cheshire restaurants, children’s entertainment and music. The Leverhulme stand will seminars and cooking demonstrations by the chefs.The Chester Food and Drink Awards gala dinner is next week, but in the meantime, this sounds like a plan. www.chesterfoodanddrink.com
