The International Man of Cheese….

Nickie has been working with International Man of Cheese, Charlie Turnbull on two great features in this month’s Dorset Magazine and this week’s Blackmore Vale.  The Blackmore Vale piece really gets to grips with Charlie’s persona with its feature ‘adventures in the life of an international cheese judge’. The article chronicles Charlie’s exploits judging wonderful cheeses, sourcing new ones for his Deli Turnbulls, and developing new menus for winter.

Love is in the air….already!

vAlthough we haven’t got anywhere near Christmas yet despite what some shops / pubs / radio stations may think, Cornishware is already thinking about February! T.G Green’s famous blue and white Cornishware pottery range will be available in red, snuggled up in a beautiful gift box which contains a little bag of scrumptious, handmade chocolates to celebrate Valentine’s Day 2010. Well it sure beats picking up a bunch of petrol station flowers on the way home…apparently!

flickr – de doo dah!


Great Balls of Fur team enjoying their Badger First Gold in the Algerian desert

Here are some of the great pictures we’ve had uploaded to Badger Ales’ flickr site since we set it up. This flickr group will form part of Badger’s new online ‘Badger Sett’ – Badger’s very own ale lovers club! And this is the standard before we have even started to shout about the group!

We were just going to ask for sensational shots of people drinking their beloved Badger around the world, as it will form part of a competition on the Badger Sett, but we decided that was too formal so now it’s an open door policy! Any Badger photo welcome, Badger Ale that is!  Click here to see the rest …….

Wear it pink!

Cakes and bakers

Today was ‘wear it pink’ day to raise funds for breast cancer research, and in true Positive PR style we didn’t just wear it pink we ‘baked it pink’! Well when I say we I actually mean Hollie, Katie and Joanne, who all made delicious pink cup cakes, but I helped out with the eating! We all donated to wear it pink to do just that, and we also had a donation ‘swear box’ all week, to help raise even more. The box ensured that this week we turned the air pink instead of blue!

For more pics of the cakes click here.

And the winner is………….


Head Chef, Brett Sutton, pictured with his vegetable grower Ted Harris, was celebrating The Eastbury achieving Silver in the Taste of the West Awards Restaurant Category for 2009, and in the same week keeping its two AA rosettes! Brett attributes a lot of this success to the great working relationship he has with his local producers, as demonstrated by the photographs if you click through!

A tasty week at the Grain Loft


Nickie has this week started work with Respect Organics. The family company makes wonderful organic cakes including carrot cake, banana loaf, ginger crush loaf and chocolate cake. Of course before starting on the work she needed some independent assessment of the products – it’s a tough job but somebody has to do it!

Joanne and the mushroom hunters…..

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!
