Entering into its 10th year, the Framlingham Country Show takes place on 13th and 14th April at Framlingham College. I'm told there will be an amazing drinks festival, rural crafts, a dog show, cars and a cookery theatre with demos from 2017 Great British Bake Off winner Sophie Faldo. Yes! Cakes.

Listen to the programme on Saturday May 23rd at 10.30am. It's the last question and I use my real name!

Grow local, buy local, eat local. The thirty mile food challenge is encouraging us to 'consume only food and drink grown, raised, caught, produced and/or processed within a 30-mile radius of wherever you live throughout September 2013. The 30 miles is ‘as the crow flies’...that’s a pretty big area: in fact it gives you nearly 3,000 square miles to choose from!'
We don't have to go that far... I was trying to run over a muntjac down my road for nearly two years.
In a city said to have more restaurants per head of population than anywhere in the UK, there is no shortage of foodies. This year at the Edinburgh Festival there are events about the history of dieting, the challenge of food security and how to forage for wild food. One science-based event on sensory dining brings together a scent technician, a linguist, a chemist and a neuroscientist to look at how tweaking our various senses affects our experience of food. It will take the form of a sit-down meal with each of the five courses exploring one of our senses. Food for Thought, a theatre collective, will perform music and drama with their menu 'Dinner is Swerved' at the Edinburgh Fringe from August 3rd - 25th and it's sold out! Let's see if we can get them to come to Suffolk...
