Networking why?

Networking4

I am often asked why I started Grub Club Cambridge and the answer is simple. I was feed up of going to networking events that were full of life coaches and accountants (nothing against either of them). I wanted to go to networking events that served wonderful food and were specifically focused on the food industry. Having worked in the food industry for a number of years I felt that there was a gap in the market for our events.

Brampton Mill’s Stylish Refurbishment

Dining-Brampton-Mill

We were lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the stunning new refurbished at Brampton Mill. Not only that, we also got to sample the new seasonal menu. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it!

The refurbishment includes an extensive makeover of both the interior and exterior areas. The charm of the 500-year old pub has been retained with many of its original features, and of course, that eye-catching fully functioning mill wheel still takes pride of place. The new look is modern, stylish and contemporary, and has kept the same welcoming warmth, whether you’re visiting for a winter evening meal or a summer drink with friends.

With convenience on the rise, people have less time to spend in the kitchen cooking up nutritious meals. As a result, meal kits have grown dramatically over the last few years and are predicted to grow even further in 2019 as consumers become time poor, yet want to ensure they are eating well. Brands such as Hello Fresh have been in the market the longest, but we have recently seen the explosion of meal kits from other brands, with Waitrose launching their version in 2018. With this rising trend, we thought it was time to review some home delivery meal kits, ranging from meat, vegetable and vegan based meals. Read on to see which dishes really impressed.

Veganuary in Cambridge

Right guys, it is time to down the mince pies, and attempt to follow some kind of vaguely healthy eating pattern again.

Mayo just got even better….

Foraging Fox Mayo

We’ve been great fans of Foraging Fox for some time now – we love how their innovation in flavour really excites the condiments sector. Since launching the multi award-winning Beetroot Ketchups in 2015, Foraging Fox has gone from strength to strength, and 2018 has been a very exciting year as they launched their first range of three natural flavoured mayos.
