Welcome to my Food Adventure
To rediscover real food, regain the habit
of cooking from scratch with locally sourced
ingredients, and free myself from the
banality of the supermarket.

I've been down to Brighton for a couple of days, to meet up with my friend Jo. We knew each other when we both lived in Brighton, but haven't seen each other for 15 years since, although we've kept in touch. Jo was in town, visiting her father, so I popped down for a...

Burgers

Every couple of months or so, I have some friends round to play board-games. There can be anything from 8 to 20 people, so I tend to do burgers and bangers on my pellet grill, as it is easy to do, and doesn't need me hovering over it.

I mentioned this farm shop over on my personal blog, just before I got the new site launched. I don't intend to repeat posts from there in the future, but am doing so here for completeness, as this was my first Food Adventure win.

The Beginnings of a Plan

By

March 5, 2013

They say a man needs a plan, so as much for my benefit then anyone else, I thought I would start off with a quick analysis of where I am already, with regards to where I buy stuff from, concentrating on independent sources in the local (Peterborough/South Kesteven) area. Then we can see in...

A New Food Adventure

March 3, 2013

When I registered this site, a month or so ago, it was with a modest intention. I have kept a personal blog for friends and family for some time,  with postings on all manner of various interests of mine. Talking to friends, I realised that blog had become a bit of a mess, with...
