Kendal Food festival has been a very good idea I think. We've enjoyed it so far! Joe in particular. The only drawback is that it's half term week - good for the kids - but it's also the last week of the month & money is in short supply. So we've been limited as to what we could do. However money was very well spent on the sausage making course down at Sillfield Farm with Peter Gott. We came away with over 2KG of unique own recipe sausage & boy are they good, not mention cheaper than we could buy anywhere made with free range pork & a low fat content. I do like to know what I'm eating isn't rubbish. Today Joe made bread rolls for free courtesy of Kendal College. They're good too & will be warmed up tomorrow for lunch along with homemade soup & paté. Not to mention the lessons Joe has learned about breadmaking & sausage making & some of the science behind the recipe proportions.
Nearly forgot, I came across a blog by another South Lakes lady, Audreys Tea Shop, the apple & date chutney sounds yummy. But the trip to Mums has provided me with some of her Autumn chutney & some spicy apple chutney, so I'm set up for a while now!
