It’s all in this week’s Weekender!
If you fancy yourself as the next Top Chef, why not register to take part in Umami Concepts Waffle Pop Up Brunch Cooking Party? It’s all about the sweet goodness that is the waffle… Bring a buddy (because we know sharing is caring) so that you can tag team, cooking for each other with the skills you pick up from head chef Nolan Ledarney.
