Jamie Olivers Italian Restaurant in Leeds – Best avoided

During my week in Leeds I decided to give this place a try http://www.jamieoliver.com/italian/leeds

After all, it is on expenses, and makes a change from room service!

I will cut a long story short, the staff were very friendly, but the food served was terrible… I watch enough Master Chef to know you must “taste, taste, taste” when preparing food… I am sure this does not happen in Jamie Olivers Leeds restaurant… either that or Chef had a cold.

The starter of sweet mini chilli peppers was rather scrummy but then the main course came… Start bay crab risotto with a side of polenta chips.

OMG, the “our famous” polenta chips where squares and not chips and the salt… so much salt, you could have dropped these in bath and made a floatation tank, they were disgusting.

As for the Start bay crab risotto, I like a bit of chilli heat, but this thing should have come with a fire extinguisher, it burned like mad; turned me red and set me off sweating, not a good sight in the middle of a restaurant… I joke not, it was that hot and very unpleasant.

When asked “was I really done” after eating two blocks of salt and less than half my risotto, I said I could not take the heat hence I could not eat anymore, all I got was a “sorry about that”.

I promise this next bit is true… I then went to McDonalds !.

A terrible terrible night that I never want to repeat… next time I go out for an Italian and I have a choice of Jamie Olivers or Zizzi I will go for Zizzi, I have never once had bad food in a Zizzi restaurant (and I have been to three different ones now).

Such a shame… Jamie Olivers menu looks great, it is just the execution of it has been let down in the kitchen.

You're too big Muttley…

… Scally is staying over for the weekend and has brought his bed with him….

Muttley – “What do you mean I wont fit?”


“If I just flop a bit”….


“And stretch…… ahhhhh there you go” Smile

Home made chocolate dogs and yummy beer from the Flyball Team at the last training session of the year.... Oooo big NOM :-)


... this new phone can also blog, so I can now blog on the move !, easy way to tell if I have used the phone:

All pictures will be at the end of the post and will all be "centered" and the picture quality might not be great, but at least I don't need to wait to get home and then wait to get the laptop and then wait to copy pictures across etc. etc !

Picture from this mornings fresh dog walk :-)
