Another new chapter begins soon, Debbie Hill has invited some of the finest West Midlands Chefs, producers and growers and entrepreneurs as tutors to pass on their skills in cookery classes at this purposely build fantastic venue in Eccleshall, complimenting their field to fork ethos. I am looking forward to meet up with friends and making new ones but even more so, to be given the opportunity to teach at this new cookery school. Their Cookery website will be up and running soon to have a good look what it is all about, who the tutors are, what courses are available and of course to  book courses.

For those who went, most probably seen these flavour pots, for those who did not go.....well there is always next year. It was a fantastic marathon of 3 days food and more food. Fabulous working with Martin Moyden and Rupert and Tracy from Bennet&Dunn. It was the second year running that we worked together at Ludlow Food Fest and it was like a well oiled engine. Oiled....Bennet&Dunn even launched a few new natural flavoured infusions, elderflower, horseradish and lavender, proud to be part of this. It was an honour to represent the new Inn in Baschurch, Great Berwick, Shropshiresalumi, Wenlock edge, Lane Cottage produce and Special Spuds. It was also good to meet up with Kate and Glyn from Wots Cooking, who had organised a fantastic line-up for their stages all weekend and my dear friends Karl Martin and Robert Swift who as always made time to talk, unlike some....the latter one put aside, the Festival was a great success, the 25th anniversary showing the finest local artisan produce and fantastic new produce were launched...exciting times ahead. It was noticeable that special diets, vegan foods, celiac and other allergens were in the up this year something to think about......

great day  at the Newport Show, Martin and Beth Moyden, Rupert Bennet, Gerrol and Alice Jalving  and children was great to work once again as a team, great responses from the public, best ever show for you sofar I believe. A massive thank you to Richard and Mandy from Lane Cottage produce for their fantastic flavoursome salad leaves, I could not have done the 'Flavour Pots' without it. Unfortunately I can not commit myself to do the Cosford and Flower show this year with you guys, but I will be ready for you on a re-run at the Ludlow Food Festival if I may. Gonna be bigger and better, I have a few ideas lined up for the stand....X
