It’s been a while since I last used my Outdoor Kitchen Kotlich set (read about it here) and I’ve been looking forward to cooking with it again. To make it worse, reading recipes in my Kotlich cook book, on Trish’s blog and on sites like Campfire Magazine have really been getting my appetite going! After much deliberation about what to try next, I decided that I would cook up some mussels using the Kotlich. I thought this was a…

  A few weeks ago my girlfriend and one of my besties headed up to Liskeard to spend the afternoon at Adrenalin Quarry. We partook of two of their attractions the Zip and the Giant’s Swing. The Zip measures 490m long and is a whopping 50m high, meaning that when you go down you hit speeds of 40mph. You don’t need to book in advance to go on the Zip or Giant’s Swing at Adrenalin Quarry, you just rock up…

I imagine you’re now wondering what a Kotlich actually is… Let me explain, basically a Kotlich is an eastern European cooking pot, which is hung from a tripod over an open fire (I’ve also seen people refer to them as Bograc, I think this is the Hungarian word for them).

  ALERT THE MEDIA – When I was on holiday in Spain I made a massive fashion discovery; it turns out that the Iconic Wayfarer sunglasses by Ray-Ban (that I have previous written about) aren’t the work of Ray-Ban at all. Actually the original design was created by a company called Koyo Bom. Ray-Ban even managed to steal their logo and make theirs look almost identical, unless under close inspection. Koyo Bom have obviously suffered badly after this massive copyright…

I’ve just returned home from Falmouth’s End of Summer Firework display down at Swanpool beach. The fireworks were launched from a barge out in the bay, which added the added dimension of beautiful reflections. A massive crowd packed the beach to watch the epic firework display. The enormous booms of some of the fireworks echoed and bounce around the bay and sounded terrific.

This week I was lucky enough to go on a little road trip up to Weston Super-Mare to the Sand Sculpture Festival. This years theme was Movies and Cinema. The selection ranged from the spectacular to the very good. I was particularly impressed with the sheer size of King Kong and the awesome work on the face of Ron Weasley. Check out some pics (they sure beat my sand castles): Jurassic Park King Kong Jaws Harry Potter Toy Story
