    The Restaurant Show 2010

    Written by

    A great day out of free tastings and sous-vide immersion into the world of culinary arts. There were olives, ice creams, huge parmesans, coffee, pastries, salami and of course plenty of wine and we tried it all.  I correctly matched a Pinot Noir to Jimi Hendrix in the completely mad music-with-wine tasting by Mickey Narea - the sommelier at Launceston Place, and afterwards went to eat at beautiful Benares for their early supper at £25 for three courses. Not much Suffolk in this show though.

    Proper Farmers

    Ruth's grape harvest on the way to be made into juice at the pressers - who doesn't like his picture being taken so we can't post it on here.

    Oh well…

    Written by

    Looks like they have chosen someone else to represent 'outspoken food blogger' on the Market Kitchen tv programme I was asked if I was interested in doing. They are focusing on Suffolk with the Chilli Farm Palmers Bakeryand Stark Naked's pesto  so I am not going to get to taste any of those with hunky Celebrity Chef Michael Caines. If I had had a chance to look at his picture first I might have been more enthusiastic about the dawn trip to London to start filming at 8am.

    Roast leg of lamb with onion sauce, loads of vegetables and a proper home-made cheesecake.

    Dhal for lunch

    Written by

    So easy, so delicious, so nutritious, so warming and so cheap. A sweet potato and lentil dhal with naan bread - didn't make the bread but I did use coriander seeds out of the garden.

    Something for everyone at the Gardeners Arms

    Written by

    After football what you really need is a big old plate of roast beef, half a bitter shandy and a chance to read about Arsenal/X Factor in the News of the World - and they serve Sunday lunch here in Tostock until 3pm.

    I love George Debman butchers

    Written by

    Because he said the piece I wrote about him in last year's Christmas edition of Suffolk magazine was 'sensational'. And he says that if I go to his butchers he will give me a bit of free bacon.
