Father’s Day … what’s it all about?

We all know the deal … Father’s Day is where we celebrate the father figures in our lives. Whether it is Dad, Grandad, Step Dad, we get to say thank you for all that you do. But what is the origin? Father’s Day is celebrated on 3rd Sunday of June in the UK. Many countries in Europe and South America celebrate it in March, and Australia celebrates it in September.

Valentine Themed ‘Love Foods’

Valentine’s Day is a great excuse to spend some quality time with the one you love and what can be better than to treat your partner to a splendid meal that not only tingles their palate but also gets them in the mood for love. They say you are what you eat, and many things we consume have a direct impact on our hormones, brain chemistry, energy, and stress levels, but some may serve a much sexier purpose: Aphrodisiacs. There are many foods that are believed to boost your sex life and though they are not magic potions that will

Chinese New Year – what’s it all about?

Chinese New Year, also known as the “Spring Festival” is an important Chinese festival celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar. A lunar month is around 2 days shorter than a solar month, so to “keep up” with the solar calendar, an extra month is added every few years. Chinese New Year is centuries old festival, but it is not clear when exactly Chinese people started celebrating it. Emperors had different versions of this holiday and through history, it was celebrated on different dates. Emperor Wu (157 BC – 87 BC) of the Han Dynasty (206 BC

Make sure your firework party goes off with a bang this year with these top tips. Safety First Remember, remember- safety is the first important factor to hosting a bonfire party.

A Guide to Gin Tasting

It might once have been known as Mother’s Ruin, but gin’s always been a favourite with us here at the Boot Inn. Here’s our guide to gin tasting – and some of our favourites for good measure! Gins can vary widely, so it’s worth tasting the different varieties to find one that suits. To a large extent, gin tasting depends on smell.  Some 75 percent of what we taste depends on smell. It’s one of the reasons a lot of people don’t like certain cheeses, or truffles. They find the smell too offensive to risk tasting. With gin, there are

Beer and Beer Festivals

Hooray for Beer! When it comes to end destinations for yeast, beer must be the nation’s favourite. Beer is the world’s most widely drunk and oldest alcoholic beverage. It’s thought to date back to the early Neolithic period – roughly 9,500BC. It is recorded in the written histories of ancient Egypt and Iraq, and played a crucial part in the construction of the pyramids, with workers given four to five litres of beer a day to help refresh and nourish them. The Germanic and Celtic tribes spread beer production throughout Europe, and in the 16th Century, the Duke of Bavaria
