festive afternoon tea at the hyatt regency, birmingham.


you all know i love afternoon tea and i certainly love christmas. combine the two and you get the best of both worlds; delicate sandwiches filled with the likes of turkey, cranberry and brie, festive takes on the classic scone and the gentle scent of warm mulled wine swirling across the table. myself and a few other midlands bloggers went along to sample the festive afternoon tea at the hyatt regency birmingham, which will launch on 1st december, starting from £19 a head.

mac 'n' four cheese.


what could be better than a bowl of pasta, covered in cheese and baked until crispy? perhaps a bowl of pasta, covered in four types of cheese and baked until crispy. gooey, oozing four cheese sauce. if you're on a diet for the office christmas party, look away now, this will definitely break the calorie budget.
