Brunch at The Alchemist Media City

If you’re from Manchester or the North, chances are you’ll know the establishments run by Living Ventures called The Alchemist.

As you’ll know, I love a foodie experience, particularly an Italian foodie experience. When EatWith got in touch with me to tell me about a number of their hosts in Tuscany, I couldn’t say no to an invitation to dinner at somebody’s house in the hills surrounding Florence. And that’s the beauty of EatWith, you have dinner at someone’s house, so it’s as authentic as you can get!
