Gusto Cookridge Summer Menu

I was recently lucky enough to be invited (albeit as a +1)  to Gusto in Cookridge recently by my colleague Jennie who has an amazing blog here.

If you flick through my blog you’ll be able to see that I am a foodie, and trying to become a more committed blogger. If you looked at my waistline, you’d also probably be able to tell I like my food.

So to be invited to a blogger masterclass seemed like a no-brainer.


I have always been a fan of Gusto, and I have written previous reviews praising them, not only for their fine Italian food but because they stock a beer I can’t seem to get anywhere else, Theresianer lager.

After settling in with my favourite tipple I got to experience a fantastic cocktail masterclass. We enjoyed a English 75, Lychee Sour Martini and a delicious Cucumber & Elderflower Martini.

Now for the really good bit… the food. (Served with a stunning sangria!)

PS: For my many vegan readers… their vegan food is also fantastic!

Chocolate Mousse Gusto

I don’t know what it is but starters are always the highlight for me. It may be because I’m hungry, but I always find art in the starters.

Espresso Martini Gusto

I started with delicious arancini balls in a rich and well-seasoned ragu. This was followed by a Pan Roast Lump of Lamb, crispy polenta, pea purée and a red wine jus which was equally delectable. It finished with a near-perfect chocolate mousse and espresso martinis. What more could a man want!?

I’d absolutely recommend a visit to Gusto if you get chance, great food and great people.

Food 4.75/5
