More Ketchup Than Salsa

More Ketchup than Salsa: Confessions of a Tenerife Barman

‘Little Britain’ with a suntan...

When a Lancashire Lad took on a Tenerife Bar

More Ketchup than Salsa lifts the lid on the morning-afters as well as the night-befores of life in a busy holiday resort.

When Joe and his girlfriend Joy decide to trade in their life on a cold Lancashire fish market to run a bar in the Tenerife sunshine, they anticipate a paradise of sea, sand and siestas. Little did they expect their foreign fantasy to turn out to be about as exotic as Grimsby on a wet Monday morning.

Amidst a host of eccentric locals, homesickness and the occasional cockroach infestation, pint-pulling novices Joe and Joy struggle with ‘Brits abroad’ culture and learn that, although the skies might be bluer, the grass is definitely not always greener.

A hilarious insight into the wild and wacky characters of an expat community in a familiar holiday destination, More Ketchup than Salsa is a must-read for anybody who has ever dreamed about jetting off to sunnier climes… or anybody who has even momentarily flirted with the idea of ‘doing a Shirley Valentine’.
