No, mate. First time.

When are you cooking - needless to say, we'll try to be there (but are off to Tenerife for a couple of weeks in January).

Jan & I should be "game on" for that, Marc. We're back from Spain on the previous Friday.

If we can't make it, we'll try to get over to Fraiche soon after.

Aye. I will be attending along with at least one other reprobate.

Reprobate number one, reporting for duty.

I'm a bit short of Lear jets though.


It's all true... I admit to being the MD of Holden Media, organisers of the Northern Restaurant and Bar exhibition, the Northern Hospitality Awards and other Northern based events too numerous to mention.

I don't post here as frequently as I once did, but to hear me regularly rambling on about bollocks - much of it food and restaurant-related - in a bite-size fashion then add me on twitter as "thomhetheringto".

Considering I'm going to be stuck sitting opposite Bapi and Gary I fear that is unlikely if not impossible. If you want to switch me onto the table with Rosamund Pike and Cheryl Cole that's fine though.

Looking forward to seeing you and eating your food again though Marc, it's been too long but what with kids and work I've been struggling to make it out to Oxton. Yes, I fully appreciate that's a poor excuse.

This whole mountain/mohammed thing might be the way forward for you though, come bring that shiny Michelin star of yours to Manchester city centre! I reckon you'd find a few prime sites going cheap right now.

Hi Marc,

I will be enjoying the rare commodity of a childless evening with the other half, however if she begins to get bored of me I may well join you in the kitchen!!! Will Mr Radley be stepping in as your sous chef for the evening?
