Moving on from a fabulous summer of FoodbyBazza

So here is a brief review of the the amazing chefs and restaurants who collaborated with FoodbyBazza and Barnbury to bring an eclectic collection of the best food experiences.

Simpsons Fish and Chips are often featured as providing some of the best Fish and Chips in the country. I can vouch for that!

The East India Cafe is a restaurant situated on The Promenade in Cheltenham. The Indian menu reflects the style of the British Raj. The most wonderful signature …

Lovin’ Livestock

So, we had a lovely invite to go to a music festival called Livestock a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to stay over and do some glamping but I’m afraid Mrs H wasn’t going to have any of that. It’s a pity because we walked through the camping area on the way into the festival and it looked really great. Far enough away from the music to get a decent night’s sleep but close enough to stagger back after …

An Neidín (Kenmare)


I’ve bloody missed this place!

It’s been some time now since I visited Kenmare in County Kerry. I’m fortunate enough to have some lovely family living in this idyllic spot and we visited for a few days last month. Sheila and Ian run a superb B and B just outside the town, adjoining The River Roughty. If you visit you won’t find a more hospitable welcome and superb breakfast than at Forgefield House. Kenmare has everything going for it, …

The Secret Garden Series – Simpson’s Fish and Chips and more


Well, what a fabulous evening that was!

Perfect food, wonderful company and idyllic venue. Thank you Simpson’s Fish and Chips, Barnbury, Robert Welch and everyone who came to the first in The Secret Garden Series. It really was a very special evening.

But that’s not it people……..

There is a lot more to come and this Thursday, 14th July the magic of Ellenborough Park and Head Chef, David Kelman comes to Barnbury with a superb menu.

Aldeburgh Shingle Beach

So, in between my wonderful working life in the fairytale land of Daylesford and arranging The Secret Garden Series at Barnbury, the better half insisted all the family go away to celebrate her birthday (sorry but age disclosure is not permitted).

Newly married with little kids we often visited friends in Frinton-on-Sea which was always delightful, particularly the daily visit to the beach hut (plenty of booze in tow, of course).

It’s many years since …

Food by Bazza


A new website for Food By Bazza

I’m cock-a-hoop to announce the launch of Bazza’s new website today, Food By Bazza

Please take a look and see what’s going on.

Most importantly, we are now taking online bookings for our great news series of pop-ups at Barnbury in Winchcombe.

I would suggest early booking is recommended in view of the huge interest in the series and the amazing team we have put together for the series.


Bazza’s Catch Up

It’s been a while since my last post, mostly because I’ve been a very busy foodie! So it’s time to catch up with some things that have been going on.

It all happened last week.

Honey and Co.

Firstly a stay over in London and after a bit of shopping with Mrs Bazza we made it again to one of my favourite spots for a casual meal, Honey and Co. Now, don’t expect any glamour here. Its a basically styled …
