You know the saying ‘there’s no such thing as a free lunch’? Well, I have to say, it’s not always the case…

After a little trip to the Museum of Science & Industry to indulge our inner science geeks and wander around a fascinating exhibition about brains, we headed to Exchange Square to visit the pop up Tweet 4 A Table restaurant. #tweetforatableTweet 4 A Table have being going all around the country dishing out antipasto sharing platters and succulent burgers galore. All you had to do in order to get involved was send them a little tweet asking if you could have a table, and those who got lucky found themselves sitting down to a yummy meal, absolutely free.

We went for a lunch time slot and were thrilled to see a ridiculously long platter of food swiftly turn up in front of us.WP_20130926_005After grabbing our drinks  – a cheeky Prosecco for me and a sparkling raspberry juice for Darren – we tucked in.

WP_20130926_003From mouth-watering cold meats – Spianata Romana, Proscuitto and Salami Milano, to tasty Comté, it was fairly reminiscent of a wonderful antipasto platter that Darren and I had shared in Rome, just over a week before.IMG_3123However, with the added flavours and textures of Peppadews stuffed with cream cheese, Summer Kiss tomatoes, red pepper houmous, lemon and coriander houmous, tomato and chilli chutney and some incredibly moreish green olive bread, I have to say, I think I actually prefer this one, served in little old Manchester.WP_20130926_007The Peppadews stuffed with cream cheese are definitely a new favourite of mine. I’m a real cream cheese addict (hula hoops dunked in cream cheese are one of my favourite snacks!) so these were always going to be a winner with me!Tweet for a table ManchesterSo why is it free you ask? Well, all of the goodies served in the restaurant are products that you can buy ready-prepared from The Co-operative Food. In a yummy and interactive take on marketing, Tweet 4 A Table have been travelling around the country to show that you don’t need to go out to a restaurant or shop in an expensive deli to have a fancy lunch….tweet for a table platterIt was a surprisingly gorgeous meal, perfect for a relaxed lunch time enjoying the last of the September sun. I know I’ll definitely be trying those Peppadews out again!The Co-operative Truly Irresistable Peppadews Stuffed with Cream CheesThanks Twitter!

I think that Tweet4atable has now finished doing the rounds of the country for this year, but I’d recommend following them on Twitter in order to keep updated on future events.

    Wow, this looks amazing! I’d never heard of something like that before. It’s incredible that the meal you got looks (and was) so delicious, certainly since it was free.
    The raspberry juice sounds delicious as well.
