I have been very excited this week to have received a really lovely letter in the mail from the QUEEN of letter writing herself - Claire from Letter Lounge, based in London.
This lovely handwritten envelope landed on my doormat with a flutter, rather than…

As is tradition for these posts, I am too tired/tipsy to do a proper write up. Needless to say we had great fun and lovely guests. I have no photographs of food... but I suspect…Continue

Had an informal tearoom for neighbours - we spend so much time living our lives and in the winter hibernating it was great to catch up with 6 of my neighbours. Yes, we have that many inhabitants!
In such a small community its good make the effort and reaffirm our connections.
Menu included Carrot & Courgette mini muffins, Caramelised shallot & blue cheese tartlets, Lemon Cupcakes & Chocolate brownies.

One of the benefits of being at home all day with young children is that occasionally, very occasionally you find yourself with some quiet time. Today the stars aligned; a sleeping pre-schooler and enough energy to do something interesting. I wanted to play with food. A forage in the fridge revealed dwindling food stocks. But all was not lost. I had the ingredients to make lemon and caper…

A Guide to Catering Insurance
If you’ve been inspired to start anything from a pop-up restaurant to a home-catering company you’ll already be aware that there’s more to your idea than meets the stomach. Behind the business of cooking there is – unsurprisingly – a lot of business. And the first must-have of any new start-up is insurance.
Home catering has great appeal to the culinary entrepreneur because of the flexibility it can…Continue

When I decided on doing a daytime secret dinner event, it was because I wanted to replicate the long languorous family meals so prevalent on the continent. Where a large inter generational group get together once a month to celebrate food and community. We all live more nomadic lifestyles these days so more and more of us are bringing up our families without the support of family or a community that we have…Continue

It seems that the Supper Club phenomenon is quite a Southern England thing... at least I haven't seen any Supper Club members much further north than Manchester.
Why might that be?
Are we too mean to invite strangers to our home?
There are apocryphal quotes heard from the Scottish such as these two
To a visitor to the house "ye'll have had yer tea then?" - meaning 'don't expect free food and drink from us
And a comment on the parsimony of the …Continue

I am looking forward to welcoming 3 good friends and their guests to my tearoom on Friday. My homemade Elderflower cordial is receiving many appreciative comments, although obtaining the citric acid has been something of a challenge!
Fingers crossed that O & E (the dogs) will again behave themselves - E especially cannot be trusted where food is concerned!

Saturday night was great fun. Exhausting but great. The menu, as far as I know went down well with everyone. I had very positive feedback on the food. It is interesting to note the some of the most popular dishes were the ones that were easiest to prepare and serve. I have been getting a bit overwrought about menu design. I had been feeling that I must give people something ‘special’, something that they…Continue
