Green fingers…..

We would like to congratulate Nicky and Paul King at The Eastbury Hotel who were recently awarded Silver for their green fingers. In this case it wasn’t actually their gardening skills being alluded to but their commitment to the environment. One of the key features highlighted was the prominence of local sourcing.  From the chefs, who grow veg in the walled garden of The Eastbury, to the house keepers (seen modelling in the picture!) who only use ‘Guarantee’ the great little laundrette in Sherborne, they do all they can to keep it local and therefore reduce the hotels carbon footprint.

Good work guys!

Joanne has recently returned from Majorca – in a peaceful valley surrounded by oranges and lemons – she found Nirvana – a plate of beetroot with pesto!  Eaten in the sunshine, underneath a vine, at the beautiful Hotel Salvia.

 Her next ’working’ trip involves picking olives by moonlight in the Extremadura region of Spain.  This is part of Olives Et Al’s Deli of the Year competition prize and the olive picking team are hoping for a bumper harvest!  Photos to follow…..but this is one taken on the last full moon trip.

Sue Fudge, the matriarch of the Fudges family, and one of the key creative inspirations at the bakery was recently asked for her thoughts on home baking by The Telegraph – click here to read her thoughts – and for more from Sue take a look at her blog ……’taking the biscuit.’
