Looking back through our photos from this summer, I noticed that we’d taken quite a few when we stopped off at the Elveden Estate on our way back from Norfolk in May. A bit delayed, but here they are, along with some shots of their rather handsome cockerel, let’s call him Jim.
“Pride in local ingredients and regional dishes is central to modern British cooking. […] but is it time to start using local ingredients to cook international foods?” This quote is from a recent post on the Guardian’s Word of Mouth blog called ‘Local food: have you had your fill?’, which asks whether the increased interest […]
This post is inspired by some delicious goat cheese that we picked up at the Fielding Cottage (@fieldingcottage) stall at the recent Essex Food and Drink Festival. The cheese was Norfolk Mardler, which excited me initially, because ‘mardle’ is (ashamedly) one of the few words of Norfolk dialect that I know (meaning ‘to chatter’). It […]

This year’s Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival seemed like far too good an opportunity to miss, in fact it spurred us on to get the blog launched! It’s not every day you get so many great producers from Suffolk and surrounds in one place for the weekend.
Snape Maltings sits in a beautiful location on the banks of the River Alde. It’s most famous as a concert hall, and home of the Aldeburgh Festival, founded by Benjamin Britten.
