HAPPY NEW YEAR, fellow foodies!

Congratulations! You've survived the Baileys-soaked excess of Christmas and 2022's bad restaurant choices. The new year comes with exciting gourmet promises and golden deliciousness (champagne, that is)! Cheers to new (food) opportunities! January is after all Janus, the Roman god of new beginnings.*
