Food news from around Cheshire and South Manchester


When we were little it was positively naughty to skip your dinner and go straight for the dessert but at the posh five star Lowry Hotel it is totally encouraged. Nip in there between 5pm and 10pm on the first Sunday of every month and you can indulge your sweet tooth with a 12-course tasting menu filled with delicious sweet treats such as vanilla cheesecake, Snickers brulee and lemon tart and there are savoury desserts like Mediterranean bread and butter pudding too, just in case those youre dining with arent so nuts about puds. The entire 12 courses is 25 and six courses are 15 visit the website at or

The Christmas gift for the person who has everything perhaps? LEssence de Courvoisier is in a gorgeous handmade baccarat decanter hence the hefty price tag. But remember this is for the discerning and wealthy cognac drinker, one who likes their tipple full of complex, exciting aromas of sandalwood, cigar leaves, toffee, marzipan and honey. Priced, 1,800.


A German beer and a sizzling Bratwurst has become something of a tradition in Manchester thanks to the fabulous Christmas markets, which have been coming to the city for the past 10 years. Theyre here again from November 18 to December 21, so its time to head off to the beer tent or cruise around the chalets and taste fine Dutch cheeses, a hog roast, mouthwatering biscuits and cakes and glasses of hot spicy gluwein.


Another selection of seasonal fare to tuck into at the lovely Hullabaloo in Altrincham on October 30. The restaurant presents diners with a mystery four-course menu each month, using seasonal ingredients and this time around diners will be sampling all those earthy flavours of Autumn. Who could resist? Tel: 0161 941 4288


Lymms Church Green gastro pub may seem like a village inn but its three AA rosettes put it just one behind the prestigious luxury five star Grosvenor Hotel in Chester. The Church Green is TV chef Aiden Byrnes first Cheshire venture and remarkably, he has earned the accolade in under a year. Aiden - who became the UK's youngest Michelin star chef at the age of 22 - was the head chef at London's Dorchester Grill before he moved north. He now plans to launch his second Cheshire venture with the re-opening of the White House restaurant in Prestbury. So watch this space.
