Ding ding…all change…

Posted by Dunc on Apr 12, 2011 in News, Stuff

Well well! What a monumental loss of focus we have had on this very blog. For that we are eternally sorry :)

In all honestly it’s been a world of change for us. No longer do we brave the murky grey skies of Manchester (although the city is strangely missed), as two of the team moved out into the Peak District countryside and the other two of us have moved down to Nottingham. New jobs, new homes and new places to visit.

Although, this little website has unfortunately been neglected, I have very much been keeping tabs on the plethora of British Made craft and produce to emerge over the last year or so. Read more…

The Lizard Cider Barn, Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall

“She makes cider inside ‘er inside…”

There’s not a lot to say about this little place except that you should really drop in if you’re going anywhere near the Lizard Peninsula and you have a penchant for the appley goodness of cider.

Rebuilt from part of the wartime RAF station at Predannack, The Cider Barn is a fairly new addition to the area. Home to Cornish Blacksmith Cider, they actually make the good stuff on site. Drop by to enjoy tasting the wide selection of different ciders, wins, liqueurs and meads. They also have an outdoor display of ancient Cider presses too wildstar platinum.

There was such a massive selection that me and Louise had a bit of a problem choosing, so we ended up buying a big selection which we then merrily ‘tasted’ back at the campsite. :)

 

Check this tea towel out.

Lunches

Posted by Lou on Jan 26, 2009 in Stuff

I-KNOW-THIS-ISNT-BRITISH-BUT-I-LOVE-THE-MUPPETS

 

So I’m back to work today after seven weeks of christmas, holidays and work trips. Basically I’m trying to lose the weight that I gained over Xmas so no more trips to the vending machines and certainly no trips to M&S for lemon cheesecake. So I went to work today armed with British apples and bread from Barbakan and my soup.  Since we had the largest celeriac known to man in our fridge, yesterday I decided to make a soup. I threw together some garlic, a whole celeriac, leeks, onion and some  carrots (all British) and some chicken stock, watch out Nigella. It looked lovely in the pot, its just when you blend it, it just looks like baby food! Back to the drawing board on that one. Tea made up for it though, parsnip, potato and cauliflower curry (again all British).

Ps I know the Muppets arent British but I love them and this was the best lunchbox I found.
