So here’s a step by step of the fun I have had today with the cold smoker
I am planning to do some cold smoking tomorrow, so I thought I would precede that with a post about the equipment I use, which I purchased from the lovely people at Mac’s BBQ.
I was in Peterborough today, so I popped into Sundays, on Cumbergate, just outside the Queensgate shopping centre. It is a cafe, and nothing fancy, but I quite like it there.
Visited my local garden centre today – Waterside – and found they now have an extensive food hall, run by Hambleton’s Farms. It has both a good cheese counter and a butcher’s counter, and also has a tempting selection of “gourmet frozen meals”.
Have just contributed to Jamie Oliver’s Better Food Foundation, which offers a chance to win a one-on-one cooking lesson with him in May.
This blog is typical of many of its kind – thought about for a while, implemented in the midst of a scandal, posted to in a flurry of enthusiasm, then, after a few weeks, nothing.
Have just run over to Vine House Farm, to stock my freezer up with more of their pies, since the last ones went down a storm.
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 meal, a drink, and a chat.
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’ve been somewhat busy the last couple of weeks, including some travel for work. However, with regard to food at home, I’ve been continuing to cook from food from my vegetable box and the local butchers. Without the trips to the supermarket, my cupboards have also run empty of biscuits and snacks, but what with cooking real meals, I can’t say that I’ve missed them.
