Mini Bites: December

I've been oh so very good and refrained from mentioning the C word all month but it's nearly December and we're already in to advent so what the hell.  Are you all ready for Christmas?  I'm very excited as it'll be my first Christmas with Mamma and Pappa Bites in five years and they always lay on a good spread.

So what else is happening this month?


First it was eating snails at Park House Club followed by judging the best faggots in South Wales at Snails Deli in Rhiwbina last weekend, it's all about the snails this month.  If you don't fancy eating the wee beasties then why not join the good folks at the deli for supper this Friday?

For £40 per person you get 3 festive courses with wine specially chosen by neighbouring Houghton Wines.  For more info contact Snails Deli on 02920620415 or email


Vegetarian and vegan friends constantly moan about the bland Christmas selection on offer, and who can blame them when the menus are course after course of mushroom pasta and dry nut cutlets.  Fear not!  The Ethical Chef is on hand with more inspired and delicious treats for you to sink your teeth in to.  There are even veggie-friendly mince pies and Christmas puds so get your orders in.
