Although it’s not the nicest of months weather wise for a birthday, this February we’re digging into the weird and wonderful mind of our office Geordie, Katy!

Let’s find out more shall we… 🤪


1) So, let’ s start with an easy one… What’s your all-time favourite food?

I want to say this is easy… but there are SO many delicious foods out there it makes it hard to choose. I think I would have to go with a Ribeye Steak with Parmesan Truffle Fries… because that is a darn delicious meal right there!!

2) What country do you most want to travel to?

Australia – think of those BBQ’s on the beach!! My husband and I were meant to go for our Honeymoon in 2020 but it all got cancelled due to Covid 😢 we’re keeping optimistic for the future to get to the land down under…

3) When is the last time you really laughed out loud?

Oh, I laugh out loud ALL the time, I have a very simple sense of humour. I laugh a lot when I’m the office with everyone, and more often than not to myself when I remember something funny that happened… 🤣

4) What class at The Avenue would you like to do next and why?

Well, I’ve done a few different ones already, including the Pub Grub, Vegan Indian and Bao, but I really want to do the Italian Class and Peruvian Class. Both have absolutely delicious menus and I love trying something new in the kitchen, such as making homemade pasta.

5) How would you spend 100 million pounds?

Most likely on food… 🤤 haha, just kidding… I would definitely buy a nice house by the coast, go travelling around the world for a bit and probably eat at some lovely restaurants that I couldn’t usually afford! I would also donate a good chunk to a number of charities that mean a lot to me and give my closest family and friends a little cut too ✌️

6) What skill do you wish you had?

The ability to pick up languages really easily! I would love to be able to interact with people abroad by speaking their language and not having to rely on the smile and point method!! 🙈

7) If you had to teach a class at The Avenue, what would you teach and why?

Hmm… probably the Pub Grub Class… because it’s just full of meaty, steaky goodness! Paired with a few glasses of red wine, this is my idea of heaven!

8) What’s the best thing you’ve ever eaten?

When my husband and I went to Panama (during those care free pre-pandemic times) we ate at a gorgeous little family owned restaurant in Santa Catolina. They did an absolutely delicious prawn curry with sticky rice!

9) If you were a bagel, what type of bagel would you be?

Poppyseed Bagel… because I’m quite annoying when I want to be and like the poppyseeds that get stuck in your teeth, you can’t get rid of me!!

10) Last but not least… what food do you crave more than any other?

Ah, even though I’m trying to be more veggie, it’s meat in general! I just absolutely love the taste, smell and flavours of all meat… I experimented a lot during lockdown and made some really delicious slow cooked dishes including “Katy’s Homemade BBQ Rubbed Ribs…” they were melt in your mouth delicious!!


Thanks Katy, we hope you have a fantastic birthday weekend! 🎉🥳
