MONKFISH MONDAY, IT’S A BIT CHEESY THIS WEEK.

Greetings from Monkfish Towers, it’s a lovely sunny day here in the Berg albeit a tad frosty. We love to eat, #simpleasthat and this illustration by Naomi Elliott sums it up for us today….for more of her lovely prints check out her website at www.naomielliott.co.uk.

Last week was a whirlwind for Mrs M helping out with BBC Radio Scotland’s Kitchen Cafe, lots and lots of fun though and thanks to everyone for visiting the blog during and after the programme. We gained lots of lovely new followers too so thank you for that.

Loads to share with you this week including this little lot…

The UK’s first cereal cafe…really? Do we need this? We’ll let you decide but you know what we think about beards…
Cereal_cafe_3095868aThe Cereal Killer Cafe (the name says it all no?) promises to bring you cereal, cereal and more cereal with the occasional pop-tart thrown in. It’s got FAD written all over it, give it 6 months? On the plus side they’re serving up ALLPRESS coffee and we LOVE allpress so perhaps it’s worth a visit just for that. Let’s hope those beards don’t get dipped in the milk jug too often…..

Cheese making kit…
We’ve been introduced to The Big Cheese Making Kit this week and will be trying one of them out soon at the Towers. In the meantime you might want to add it to your christmas shopping list. Apparently 70% of recipients are men and we all know how hard it is to buy for the men in our lives – this could be the answer…

The BEST cheese sandwich…
Felicity Cloake's perfect grilled cheese sandwich
Felicity Cloake tells you everything you need to know about the might ycheese toastie…or should that be a grilled cheese sandwich? If it’s all about two ingredients, bread and cheese, then get those right and you’re on to a winner…apparently! Read all about it at over at the Guardian.

I wish cheese was a vegetable…

If you think that the perfect ‘cheese toastie’ was one step too far then you can always dream about this. The perfect notebook for you…

The Sustainable Restaurant Association in Edinburgh…
Last week Mrs M attended the SRA ‘do’ at the Scottish Cafe in Edinburgh and met all sorts of interesting people. If you don’t know much about what the SRA get up to then have a look at their website www.thesra.org to find out more.

Visiting Scotland at the ‘Ingredients for Success’ event were speakers James Withers (Scotland Food & Drink) and Guy Grieve (The Ethical Shellfish Company) who helped to celebrate the positive part that Scotland are playing in the food ‘revolution’. Mrs M was literally high-fiving when she got home as the event really captured the call for action that we need when it comes to supporting our local food and drink producers. A great event!

The Food Revolution Daily…
Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 12.26.37 Screen Shot 2014-11-05 at 12.26.26Yet another Jamie Oliver website?? Yep but this one is a bit different…bringing you daily news of all the latest food stories that matter. We really like it, saves you searching and googling around for articles as it takes information from hundreds of sources, it’s a bit ‘right-on’ but we can handle some of that every now and again. Bookmark it and see what you think.

And if you’re one of those ‘chocolate really goes with cheese’ folk (seriously?!) then you might want to whip up a hot chocolate today to slurp with that toastie….
