lovely find mark 2

On Friday last week, Joanne and a small team of Mushroom hunters from Slow Food Dorset  set off in Puddletown Forest to find some hidden treasures –  guided by Johnny Mushroom (not his real name – he’s really called John Wright) the gang found 29 different varieties including one that John exclaimed was ‘the find of the year!’ After a very sunny morning foraging and munching on Dorset Cereals bars, the hunters took their basket of fungi with them to The Potting Shed at Poundbury Gardens – tales of mushroom hunting and the one that got away were rife over a beautiful deli platter!

The Great Big HUGE Dorset Feast – 24th October  

We are getting set for this event which is one of the highlights of the Dorset food calendar – people flock to Olives Et Al at Sturminster Newton for the Feast – the smelly cheeses, warm bread, hot mulled wine and yes, the fish man – draw people into the marquee. This year for the first time there’ll be a second HUGE Feast at The Potting Shed at Poundbury Gardens on the 31st October, so there’s no excuse not to come and enjoy some of the very best Dorset has to offer!

As we are working more and more with online PR we have recently invested in Social Media Library. It’s a fantastic tool that allows us to search for the most relevant bloggers, networks and forums for any given client. I have had a lot of fun searching through food blogs previously which has taken me on a meandering journey from the sublime to ridiculous with highlights including ‘a good place for a cup of tea and a think’ to ‘Bitchin’ in the Kitchen with Rosie’! Now with SML we have a tool that can quickly tell us not only which blogs are most relevant for our clients but also which are most influential – very useful but a bit less fun!
