Highlights from the Ferens – Central Art Gallery, Hull

Despite stubborn popular opinion, Hull has a lot to recommend it. There are an array of theatres, marvellous cultural sites as well as it being the home of formerly alive poet Philip Larkin. But at the heart of Hull is also the Ferens Art Gallery. This is home to some...

Nanette – Comedy at its Finest

Nanette is at its core a discourse on comedy. That is not to say it is an academic manual, but more a careful dissection of the art form. Beginning as a traditional comedy show, Hannah Gadsby tells tale of her youth as a queer person in Tasmania, a country where...

Dope Burger Revisited – Breathtaking Lunch, Hull

Avid readers of this blog will remember St Nick's outrageous review of the beatified Dope Burger restaurant in Hull. This is one of my favourite burger joints in the country if not the world. Their complete deference to healthy eating and non-nauseating decor makes...

Big Men with Small Feet – A Poem

I must apologise in advance, there is a swear in this poem. If you can bear such a departure from decorum, do go ahead and read. I wrote this poem when I was particularly piqued. Do enjoy Big Men with Small Feet, which I hope to feature in an upcoming anthology of my...

Papa’s Fish & Chips – A Bellyful of Fun, Hull

For my sins, I have made it to Hull for a weekend. Ahead of indulging in the wonderful Larkin Trail and dining at Dope Burger, one of my favourite burger haunts in the country, I thought I would feast on Fish & Chips. Doing so in a coastal town is often a safe bet....

Grace Jones – Slave to the Rhythm, Album of the Year 2019

I can think of no better way to end a decade than to laud the woman, the myth, the legend that is Grace Jones. It is not hyperbolic to state Grace Jones has had the second greatest influence on my life, after mother/father dearest(s) of course. Slave to the Rhythm was...

Almost Album of the Month 2019

Friends, loyal readers, people who dislike me reading this trying to find a chink in my armour (and failing), this is my favourite post of the year. In this post, I have the honour of paying homage to albums which I've truly enjoyed throughout the year, but for...

Blue Amsterdam, High Dining – Netherlands

Pardon this inexcusable pun, this was not a place of intoxication but one of high altitude. Whilst I would love to inform you of the places to get most genuinely intoxicated, I fear this would not stand me in great stead with current and/or future employers. But Blue...

Highlights from the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

The Rijksmuseum is a jewel in Amsterdam's glorious crown. While the tickets are 20 euros each, every one of those euros are worth it. This collection of masterpieces is among the greatest in the world and I count myself very fortunate in being able to have seen it....

B & B Lunchrooms – Superlative Sandwich, Amsterdam

There is a reason why this restaurant places in the top 3% of restaurants in Amsterdam. This is a centrally located, high quality and economical option for those who eat more than once a day. One could feel a little oppressed by how small it is and the stairs to the...

Hello and welcome to CEDRIC SUGGESTS, specially designed for those of us who are partial to a slice or three of The Culinary Arts…

But Nota Bene Dear Reader: this blog is NOT limited to my recipe and restaurant ramblings alone!

Not forgetting my regular Favourite Albums of the Month / Year feature. Are you ready? Then enter Freunde, Étranger, Stranger…
