We're busy, busy bees in the kitchen at the moment and it's hot work I can tell you. Our newest customers, the holiday makers at Hope Barton Barns in the beautiful South Hams, are devouring my meals at an astonishing rate, so keeping their freezer fully stocked is a...

Waste Not Want Not

According to published data, the average family throws away £60 worth of food each month! Just imagine, that's the equivalent of THROWING AWAY SEVERAL WHOLE ROAST CHICKENS! You just wouldn't, would you? But, of course, it doesn't usually happen like that. It's a bit...

Lovely Customers!

One winter's Saturday last year, whilst manning my market stall, trying to keep warm and bemoaning the difficulties of running your own small business with a fellow stall holder, he suggested we think about what we enjoy about our businesses rather than those things...

At last perfected the art of growing French tarragon - use my polytunnel of course, as it's nice and warm and dry in there. Picked this bunch this morning to use some making a large batch of my Chicken in Sandford Orchards' Cider. The rest is chopped for the freezer for future batches. Very satisfying.

Absolutely delighted to now be supplying Hope Barton Barns with a range of my meals, puddings and soups for all of their visitors. It's such a lovely place overlooking Hope Cove and in a favourite area of mine - having had many a happy holiday in the South Hams. A good excuse for lots more visits this summer!
