Weekly Love: the one where I spent a windy day exploring Bristol
1. An incredible French meal at Little French in Bristol – full review coming soon! | 2. Beautifully cold, crisp and sunny winter days doing research around the Tower of London. | 3. An insanely good mutton curry and roti from Gopal’s Corner in Market Hall, Victoria. | 4. More delicious Bristol eats: a fantastic mushroom and pearl barley ‘sausage’ roll from Hart’s Bakery in the railway arches at Bristol Temple Meads station. | 5. Throwing together another of my Winter Citrus, Bulgar Wheat & Griddled Halloumi Bowls for a working desk lunch. | 6. Pretty Valentines Day-themed light art in Selfridges.
