This next decade is not about what we have but what we do. As we think about our effect on the climate, many of us are pledging to buy less, recycle more and give not take.
If you have a special celebration coming up – a friend’s birthday, an anniversary or a reunion – instead of buying gifts and wrapping them in paper, which will only be thrown away, why not enjoy an experience together instead.
During CH1 Chester Food & Drink Week, 18th – 26th January 2020, check out:
- #FoodieFriday at Chester Market
Try all kinds of food from tacos to Thai, pizza to panini and Caribbean to the Market Café while sipping craft beer, fine wine or a good old cup of Great British tea. Open until 10pm every Friday with live music and you can now enjoy £1 off your parking by simply scanning your ticket in Chester Market.
- Dig out your favourite tartan skirt or shirt and head to Atina Kitchen in Foregate Street to celebrate the birthday of the great Scottish poet Robbie Burns. Their traditional Burns Night supper, on Friday January 25th, has all the favourites – haggis, neeps and tatties – as well as a few twists on the traditional fare like a tandoori mackerel fillet and pearl barley risotto.
- If you are a beer aficionado and think you could teach the experts a thing or two, sign up for a masterclass at Brewhouse & Kitchen in Love Street and brew your own. Enjoy a day in their micro-brewery while crafting your own special mix of hops and then taste chef’s beer inspired creations from the menu. If, on the other hand you are happy to leave it to the professionals, on January 25th and 26th Beer Heroes on Watergate Street are offering two-hour beer tastings from noon onwards. Learn about and taste 8 x 1/3rd pints whilst being taught what tastes to look for and how the professionals do it.
- Have you missed Taste Cheshire’s market at the beginning of the CH1 Chester Food & Drink Week? Why not make a date in your diary – the third Saturday of every month – to pack up your plastic boxes and recyclable bags and head to Town Hall Square to buy food and drink that is grown or created close to home.
