Gourmet Society Bloggers’ January Recommendations

 In Uncategorised

Now that January has come and gone 2017 has officially begun, as most people will have cast off the habit of writing ‘2016’ in documents, most of the horrors that took place last year already seem dim and distant, and of course, plenty of New Year’s Resolutions have gone the way of logic in politics.


This brave new year is already somewhat off the rails already, as many might have expected, but there’s a silver lining to be found already around the dark clouds of the young 2017. Or at least, it’s a silver lining if you like eating out. That’s right, there have been more fantastic venues added to Gourmet Society all across the country throughout January, and here are but a few of the spots that make the world a little brighter.
