I am a proud Mancunian, food nerd and eating enthusiast. Whenever I speak to someone who has recently been on a trip overseas my first question is always 'what was the best thing you ate?'. I love food history and think one of the best ways to learn about a city is through its food and drink.

This experience was a little marred by the weather but Robert did his best to accommodate it and it was very enjoyable. We were taken to eating places we wouldn’t have known about and given very tasty food.
