There’s a very strong focus on local food throughout our November issue.
I was delighted to take part in a Come Dine with Me event, genially hosted by local butcher and local food enthusiast Chris Wright. Find out how his meal was rated by our discerning foodie guests! If you think you’ve got what it takes to host a similar event, then please get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.
Could you manage without imported food? We challenged Aleks McKay to eat local only and keep a diary recording his experiences. How long did he last? You can find out by buying the magazine! (Personally, I’m not sure I could get by on a diet of local food only, but if I lived with the chef who cooked Alex’s meals then I might be prepared to give it a try…)
Bryan Peterson talks about his journey from toasting sassermaet to improvising three course meals. An inspiration for all those who “can’t cook, won’t cook”>
Of course, this issue is also about drink. Neil Riddell talks about his experience of beer brewing and has some of his tipples reviews by our very own beer reviewer.
As usual, there’s a smorgasbord of goodies to enjoy within these pages. Bonne appetite and see you in December for our bumper Christmas special.
