    Pakenham Fox

    Written by

    Sunday lunch at Pakenham Fox this time, where a crowded pub indicated this is a popular event.  The buffet had a choice of three meats (had the roast belly of pork - looked the freshest and tasted pretty good).  You get called up table by table and can pile your plate as high as you like for £8.95.

    Wine lists on i pads

    Written by

    In the New York Times (yes, I'm that kind of girl...) I have just read an article about restaurants listing their wine lists on i pads and increasing sales by vast amounts. This is because people choose on average more expensive wines than they would from a tatty old book, perhaps because they can see much more information about the wine than usual and can cross reference things like the grape or the area. How long before that comes to Suffolk eh?

    Four Horseshoes - big lunch

    Written by

    Went for a walk around Thornham and popped into the Four Horseshoes - a Greene King pub -mid-afternoon to find their carvery still in full swing. It runs all day and is £10 for a plate enough to keep my teenage son happy.  Good choice of nice veg but we are starting to spot the obvious but fatal flaw in a Carvery - how do you keep the meat moist and juicy?   We have to keep choosing the fatty Pork Belly (which was quite tasty) as everything else looked a bit dry...

    and Mulberry crumble for dessert...

    ...but made this at home with mulberries from the freezer because the puddings are never this good.

    Often go to this bakers in Eye, just the thing to warm up after a cold morning out but would like to have more time to go to the cafe down the road  - how is the coffee?

    Jerusalem Fartichokes

    Have you noticed? Unlike asparagus and strawberries now these are truly seasonal and grow like weeds. I dug these up before the ground got too hard and made a delicious lunch with a grating of Lincolnshire Poacher cheddar on top. Mmmm...

    Rabbit Hunting - part one

    Written by

    Well, not so much hunting as waiting for them to come for the carrots.

    Rabbit Hunting - part two

    Written by

    That is the problem (and advantage) with killing your own animals. You have to face the fact that it was once alive and it makes you eat less meat, which is a good thing. It wasn't easy - a huge arguement with my son, frozen hands and now the last thing we want to eat is rabbit. So into the freezer until the memory has faded, but I am still hoping to run over a deer.
