Sunshine and Beer: Moretti Gran Tour


Okay so the weather has definitely took a turn for the worse since my last post. This one was a few week ago when we still had glorious sunshine in Manchester.

I went to a great little event by Italian beer brand, Birra Moretti. It was held at the Old Granada Studios which made for such a cool venue. They had made a 'mini Italy' in the studios with different stands offering authentic Italian street food from some of the best-rated eateries in the UK and of course, lots of Birra Moretti!

I was invited as a VIP guest which was great as we were able to try as much as we liked.

I can't even pick out a favourite from the food stalls, it was all so good. I tried most of dishes from the different vendors. I started with gnocchi with slow braised pork shoulder in a tomato ragu from Pasta e Basta; then I moved onto an amazing spit roast pork roll with rocket and and pesto from Forza Win before going in for my fave- pizza! Pizza Pilgrams were offering the most amazing and authentic wood-fired margherita pizzas.

After all that, I was going to give the food a rest until I bumped into the gorgeous Hannah who told me that I must try the deep-fried calzones from Cheeky Italian (yes, they tasted as unhealthy as they sound- delicious though).

And of course I had to try some gelato from Gelupo and an amazing Italian coffee from Terrone & Co.

I was gifted these Office gold sliders from House of Fraser recently and they've rarely been off my feet. The weather has gotten cooler over the past week and I've started wearing trainers and boots a little more- come back summer!

Have you indulged recently?
