The Foodie Bag

The perfect answer for people like me who want to photograph their dinner when they go out. A 5 in 1 photographic reflector and diffuser (whatever that is) and photo backdrops. All in a handy #thefoodiebag canvas number, just to be sure that the restaurant sees you coming. £39.95 and not on my Christmas list.

Food Season at The British Library is back with a mouth-watering menu of digital events inspired by the cookbooks, recipes and culinary stories in our collection.

Speakers include Madhur Jaffrey, Raymond Blanc, Calum Franklin, Tom Kerridge, Ruby Tandoh and we’ll be covering topics from manuscript cookery sources, food and machismo, the cheese history of the UK, Caribbean cooking and restaurant criticism.

An Overdue Autumn Roundup

We have been sooooo busy over the last few weeks but had no time to tell you about it. We have moved the website to a new template with a much better looking Cook Book recipe page and a newsletter... sign up to receive news about our events as we write it. The Inspector entered the Mr Cutlets competition at Meatopia and got through to the the finals of six chefs with her Red Poll Shin and Tail stew and dumplings; the meat was from Elmswell butchers and had to be cooked on an open fire at the competition to select who would have the winners space at Meatopia. We went to the Cereal Killer Cafe (before it was attacked by anarchists !!!) Framlingham Sausage Fest, the Urban Food Fest in Shoreditch where we met Henry whose mum makes the sauces for Pan n Ice, and now we are at Blackthorpe Barn where our Little House of Cooking has been doing a pop-up cafe seven days a week for the Christmas shop, Christmas trees and Craft Fair and will be there until Tuesday 22nd of December. See you there!

The OLYMPIC LONDON 2012 foodie rant

Not a day goes by without a story about what you can't do at the Olympics. No t shirts with slogans, no food, no drinks, no picnics, the biggest Macdonalds in Europe and do not on any account call anything OLYMPIC or LONDON 2012.  So nerr to the OLYMPICS - we want to say and do and eat what we like.

Real Beer and Food Festival

This was full of people on Saturday and ice creams were selling fast. I tried gooseberry and elderflower (Aldercarr) and double cream vanilla (Criterion) Both were fab. I came home with a mutton curry from Jimmy's Farm, eating it now - very spicy and soon to feature on our Dish of the Day. Also tried guessing the four ingredients of the smoothie - I got carrot, ginger, apple, mango - how did I do?
