Cookery School

Who knew that Thaikhun were starting a cookery school??

Anyone who is a regular reader of my blog will know how much I have grown to love Thaikhun, and when the opportunity for a mate date arose, at Thaikhun at Intu MetroCentre, I was not going to refuse.

Deb from Country Heart and Home invited me along as her plus one for the first outing of the Thaikhun Cooking School. The cookery school takes place once every four weeks and is two hours long.

“The Cooking school is £50 and includes a welcome drink and an introduction to Thai ingredients.  This is the followed by a demonstration and practical hands on session learning to cook a main and a starter. All equipment and aprons are provided and there is a goody bag to take home”

A Date with a Mate @

Last night (21.07.2016), I had the pleasure of accompanying Deb from Country Heart and Home to the VIP opening of the new store at Intu MetroCentre.

My first event of this kind, I was taken a back by  not only how eye catching the store and it’s layout was but the beauty of the team, that was on the floor to assist with the smooth running of the night. Most of them wearing items that were in the store to purchase.

We were welcomed with a drink of our choice (Champagne, Beer or Water), then invited to look around. As always it was nice to meet other bloggers but also nice to be in the company of some North East Celebrities.

All I can say is WOW, there is an amazing range of both Mens and Womens Designer Clothes. With items from Jimmy Choo, Alexander McQueen, Valentino, Hugo by Hugo Boss, Vivienne Westwood and so many more.

They stock ranges for Women, Men and have a selection of Children’s Shoes, (which, along with the Women’s shoes, I stood and looked at in awe for quite some time).

I have to say I was impressed with the price range of the products too. For all there were items that were in the four figure bracket, there were indeed some lovely pieces that fell in to the high street price band.

Here are a few photos from the night, thank you for inviting me Deb and thank you for having me
