There’s a real buzz about the place!

You might think that we can’t wait to get away from Dorset given the amount of time we spend travelling here, there and everywhere – but we love this place really! This week alone Briony and I were in North London at Jamie Oliver HQ for a meeting on jme (Jamie’s new range of deli products) and  Katie and Joanne are in Clapham today learning all about the beautiful kitchen products offered by Chomette (their idea of heaven!). On Monday I will be in Shoreditch for a photo shoot for Godminster and then on Friday, Abbie and I are travelling to Devon to visit Rod and Ben’s organic Farm, with a little detour to Dartmouth, to say hello to Paul, Chris and the gang at Dart Marina on the way home ….phew!!

I can assure you that we really do love this place though – but wherever we’re needed – that’s where we’ll be – we’re sort of PR super heroes (well that may just be in my head lol!)

Back here in sunny Sherborne, I had to bee very careful (sorry!) on a visit to see Brett Sutton, Head Chef at The Eastbury.  He was having two bee hives installed in the bottom of The Eastbury’s Walled Garden so that he can serve only Eastbury honey to guests at the Hotel and The Three Wishes bistro in Cheap Street.  It was fascinating learning all about keeping bees and in fact it was a lot less scary than I had anticipated! I think that as a chef, Brett’s efforts and commitment to serving the most local food possible to his guests is hard to compete with, and I tasted the honey myself – it was bee –autiful (last one I promise!)
