our return from peripatetic food-and-wine ramblings throughout Europe
and the world, we like nothing more than to have the time to enjoy
preparing foods for family and friends in our own Devon kitchen.
And why not? We are fortunate to live in a rich and fertile corner
of the world that has an abundance of good things to eat and drink:
fish and shellfish from Exmouth, Brixham and the cold Channel waters
of our Westcountry coast; our own locally netted wild Exe salmon;
rich and tangy dairy products, including real farmhouse cheddar
and other cheeses, cream, clotted cream and farmhouse ice creams;
organic meats -- such as flavourful lamb from Exmoor, Devon beef
and superb freerange poultry; locally grown organic vegetables;
even English wines, Devon "scrumpy" (hard apple
cider), great locally and regionally brewed real ales; and much else
if that's not enough, the availability of top quality continental and
Mediterranean produce and products means now that today as far as eating
and drinking in Devon goes, the world really is your oyster.
space is our chance to share with you our food-and-wine
jottings, as prepared and enjoyed in this particular Devon kitchen.
But don't come here expecting just local Devon foods and recipes: we
stress that our tastes are wide-ranging, with Mediterranean and Asian
influences dominant themes. But if you like the sorts of things we do,
then do drop in regularly and share with us seasonal foods, foods for
special occasions, and food-and-wine stories and tales of everyday life
in a Devon kitchen...
still, come to Devon and discover for yourselves the most beautiful
and wonderful place on earth to live or visit.
