See what happened when blogger ‘What Emma Did’ took the 24 hours with Gourmet Society challenge!
Lifestyle Blogger ‘What Emma Did‘ has recently taken part in the 24 hours with Gourmet Society challenge! We often challenge bloggers, foodies and the general public alike to try Gourmet Society for just 24 hours and see just what savings they can rack up by dining out for every single meal.
So what happened when I- Manchester’s most food loving blogger (in my opinion!) – was let loose with the Gourmet Society card for 24 hours? I had a full on busy day last week, which needed lots of food and coffee breaks, so here is how I filled my tummy…
Emma started her day off right with a trip to Grand Daddy’s Diner for breakfast, which is a fantastic venue for home-made comfort food from across the Atlantic. Guests will be forgiven for thinking they have stumbled across a real American diner when they enter this fun themed venue. With leather booths and vintage style décor, Grand Daddy’s Diner will transport customers back to a time of jukeboxes, rock ‘n’ roll and milkshakes. Not wanting to overstep the mark on meal #1, Emma opted for a soya latte and a stack of their pancakes for a brunch meeting.
Bourbon and Black was Emma’s choice to stop in for lunch. As the name suggests, Bourbon and Black are experts in whisky and BBQ cuisine. To accompany the kick of a stiff American whisky, Bourbon and Black have devised a menu of comfort food classics with a stylish twist. The menu is simple and jam-packed with flavour, with a range of coal grilled meat, fish and vegetarian options. Emma opted for, and tucked into, a fried chicken burger with lots of sauces and fries on the side – all for 2 for 1 with her dining companion, of course.
Reaching the end of her day, Emma selected Liverpool’s Amalia Italian restaurant for a delightful dinner. Amalia offers the finest of contemporary Italian cuisine in elegant and comfortable surroundings.Translated, Amalia is Italian for industrious and hardworking, which is reflected in the work, food and presentation of this fine dining establishment. For this meal, Emma was joined by her mum and her sister who together enjoyed a combination of starter dishes and a sun-dried tomato and prawn ravioli main course, an amazing four season pizza, with a mixture of toppings, and the traditional lasagna which was made with authentic pasta sheets. Saving 2 for 1 between the three of them, they enjoyed a hearty discount at the end of their meal.
Emma’s conclusion of her 24 hours with Gourmet Society?
If you like to dine out, no matter what city you live in, then I’d recommend checking out Gourmet Society – especially if you like to save like I do! It just comes in handy for those days you may wander around a city centre and feel a bit peckish, but want to make sure you pop into somewhere that can offer worthwhile discounts. You can take a look online whenever you are out and about, and if you find that your favourite restaurant runs a 50% offer, you really are winning!
For the full run-down of Emma’s day taking the Gourmet Society challenge, including detailed restaurant reviews and a host of mouth-watering images, take a look at her post on her blog.
