Review: BierKeller

Razz got the chance to review the latest addition to Exeter’s nightlife, a Bavarian themed beer hall down on the quay. With cheap steins, an abundance of traditional bratwurst and salted pretzels, what more could you want?

Home Bake Box: Rose and Raspberry Gateau

This month’s home bake box had a decidedly valentine’s theme (a cute pastel pink cake sprinkled with raspberries and infused with rosewater notes). Deemed a ‘posh Victoria sandwich’ it’s definitely worth adding to your list of recipes, creating a fruity and rich sponge cake.
