Derbyshire Food & Drink Awards

We had a lovely evening at the Derbyshire Food & Drink Awards last Thursday, where I was attending as a guest and delivering a tray of beautiful cupcake gitboxes as prizes - so cute! Here are a few snaps of me & my friend Luisa enjoying the bubbly and a couple of the winners. If you're into Gluten Free too, be sure to visit Le Mistral in Wirksworth Derbyshire, phone ahead to tell them you need GF and they'll prepare you a wonderful meal. They won best international restaurant in Derbyshire! Congratulations


  1. Wonderful! Sounds like a good evening. So are you on the left or the right in the photo with Louisa?

    I don't know that I will ever be in Derbyshire, but you never know! Noted about Le Mistral in any case. :)


  2. Hi Karin,

    that's me on the right in purple and gold. we had a lovely night. yes, Le Mistral is lovely, coffee shop, wine bar and converted cellar restaurant. I worked for the owner's mum when she owned it over 15 years ago, so I have a soft spot for the place anyway

    best wishes, Charlotte

  3. Oh, I just got my answer, lol! I just noted on your comments in the previous posts that you have added your photo to your profile here, so that makes you the one on the right, and Louisa on the left. :D It's a great photo of you both.

  4. LOL -- AND as you posted to me, I was posting back to you. Le Mistral sounds great, and that's wonderful that you have a connection to it, too.

  5. Thanks for the tip about Le Mistral, will look forward to checking it out next time we are up.

  6. Hi Kate, pleasure! If you call them ahead, they are very able to cater for all diets, lovely couple too, but make sure you let them know you're coming. Off to enjoy another GF dinner at home now...bye x
