You're a Gastronomy Guru!

Everyone likes food, you could say it’s a necessity, but you take it to a whole new level.


You fall into one of two categories:

a) The Diner
The weekly shop is nonexistent in your household as you dine out so often, and when you do eat at home you rustle up ‘supper’ from fresh produce you have purchased from a monthly farmers market - which is nicely timed with how often you cook for yourself.

b) The Cordon Bleu chef
Your kitchen is your sanctuary.  You've hosted more dinner parties than those in a whole series of Come Dine With Me - which you would win hands down (naturally).  You can chop stuff at impressive speed and you know how to de-bone a fish, make a rue and other difficult cooking techniques.

You also have a larder... which you can step into.


Welcome to Birmingham – a foodie’s heaven. With enticing restaurants representing some 27 different nationalities and styles of cooking - if you love to dine out, then you are in the right place.  Similarly, if you love to cook you’ll relish (sorry!) the numerous markets and culinary courses on offer.

Feast your eyes on our Food & drink section to find out about the above.
