Learning about Norfolk’s Red Gold

For a while now I’ve been wanting to do some research on the history of saffron growing in the region. It seems like an incredibly exotic, colourful and delicate ingredient to be grown in East Anglia so I was intrigued to find out more. And what better place to start than Saffron Walden – the […]

A warm welcome back to Norfolk

At the end of last year we decided it was time for a change of lifestyle. Having spent over 10 years away, Norfolk started to call me back (as I’ve heard it does!) and so a move was on the cards. It’s been a tricky few months trying to make it happen, and we’re still […]

An apple a day (it’s the season!)

I’ve previously blogged about apples on this site, punning on the Cupertino computer company connection, so it seemed only right to bring apples back to the fore again now that the bods in California have just released a new batch of shiny things. And especially since it’s the height of British apple season! The weekend […]

Seasonal Suffolk and Fresh Fridays

On our way to Norfolk a few weeks back we took a well worth-while detour off the A12 to the Dedham Vale Vineyard (@DedhamValeVines). Since our last visit the vineyard has not only had a change of name (from Carter’s), the facilities have also been transformed with a new shop and tasting barn. This time […]

We’ve just returned from our honeymoon in Whistler and Vancouver having sampled our fair share of really fantastic […]

Photos from our Southwold food odyssey

Happy New Year from both of us! I thought I’d start the year off with a look back at the photos from our trip to Southwold on a sunny day in November. With the floods and Christmas, and everything else that’s gone on in between, it seems like a long time ago already, we had […]

The perfect ingredients for a festive evening

Going to choose the Christmas tree has to be one of my favourite Christmas traditions, and really means we can start to feel festive. This year we decided to go straight to the farm to get our tree. The Wheaton family from Great Slamseys Farm (@SlamseysFarm), near Braintree have been growing Christmas trees for over […]

The art of the Ploughman’s

Bread? Cheese?  Ham? Pickles? Check! On the face of it a Ploughman’s lunch is a very simple combination of staple foods. But done well, it can be not only incredibly tasty, but a fantastic way to make the most of great local produce. I’ve had some delicious Ploughman’s (and some terrible ones!), so I thought […]
