Shuck It , It’s Bloody Joseph Time

Have you ever tried and Bloody Joseph? No, me neither. I am a devotee of the Bloody Mary, I have spent years perfecting chilli-spiced vodka, getting the right condiments into the right tomato juice, choosing to add lemon or lime.  I am of course familiar with the other Bloody...

Veg In A Box – Climate Change Champions

One of the things that attracted me about moving to Devon was fabulous fresh produce that would be available. Relocating our business from London was a big gamble but being able to serve our food from local producers was a really big deal for us and so we set...

BOOK REVIEW – FOOD AND FIRE by Marcus Bawdon

I’m a cookbook junkie, we have over 500 between us. Some we’ve inherited from our mothers and grandmothers, others gifts, recommendations or on a whim for a specific recipe. However, it’s always quite different reading a book when you know the author, when we can hear them speaking, feel...

Light My Fire – Cooking With Certainly Wood

We were delighted when Certainly Wood contacted us, challenging us to get cooking with wood. We couldn’t resist and waited with excitement until the package arrived. The package arrived containing, kiln dried wood, kindling, fire starters, BBQ tools, an apron and a booklet on how to cook with wood...

CELTIC FISH & GAME – KEDGEREE
