Tom Flint: Family food breathing new life into pub

In 1972 the Ugandan dictator Idi Amin declared that the country’s Asian population had 90 days to leave. At that time this amounted to approximately 60,000 citizens who had built lives and businesses in the country. Around 30,000 of these people were British passport holders and were forced to leave everything behind and return to the country. Many arrived penniless, having been robbed of their possessions and assets before leaving the country, and their new home was not the most welcoming in many cases.

Tom Flint: Wine glasses - Size really does matter

Wine, wine lovely wine, what a wonderful creation it is. 
Human beings have been making and enjoying wine for centuries and it must go down as one of our greatest achievements. 
 Give me wine over the wheel any day. Enjoyment of wine is something can bring people from all backgrounds together. However, there are some people who take their enjoyment of wine to a whole new level, a level that can be a little bit offensive to some.

A pie whistle, a pie funnel, a pie vent, a pie chimney, a pie bird, and a partridge in a pear tree, are all the same thing.

Tom Flint: Positive and unifying national nosh

Food plays a central role in our culture with specific types of food becoming synonymous with a country or cultural movement. 
This is often used as a means of ridicule, such as the French referring to English people as roast beef, or that period in time when my mate Ben used culinary-based insults when getting into arguments with people in Bristol. For the most part, however, this cultural association with food is a positive one, unifying groups of people who are proud of the produce of their home.

Advanced pancakes and bullet proof coffee

Café culture is well and truly a part of our city, in fact Brighton was named the coffee capital of the UK in 2014. Everywhere you look there will more than likely be a café in sight and it is rumoured that wherever you are in the city, you will be no more than 100 yards from a café (I may have just made that up).

Tom Flint: Healthy options for everyone to enjoy

I have always considered myself to be someone who generally eats well. Unfortunately, my definition of eating well is quite different to the sort that many attempt around this time of year. It turns out that eating well and eating healthily are not necessarily the same thing.
