Add two good spoons of Stokes Cider & Horseradish Mustard. Stir in a good dusting of plain flour, then a bottle of Aspall PC Cyder.

The other two bottles? Chef’s motivation of course!Aspall Premier Cru Cyder 6.8% abv

Delightfully Deli


From Delhi to Dorset, the Deli is a delightful collection of foods from across the world. Charcuteries, Pies & Pastries. Olives, Peppers & Chillis. Bhajis, Samosas & Pakoras. It’s too good simply to walk past – so take a closer look.

Charcuterie, a French term (pronounced shar-KOO-tuh-ree) for cured meats, is a way of preparing meat to be eaten cold or warm.

You will find the recipe for the pictured Salami, Mozzarella & Chilli Jam Bruschetta – HERE.

While the practice of curing meats dates back to ancient times as a method of preservation before refrigeration, today charcuterie has become a culinary artform in its own right.There are many types of charcuteries, such as air-dried, salt-cured and fermented. These processes can take anywhere from a few weeks for pancetta to up to six months for cured pork tenderloin (lomo).There are also types of soft charcuterie, like pâté and terrines, made from seasoned forcemeats. Pies, sausage rolls, bhajis and more.

Britain is home to a growing number of artisanal producers creating charcuterie, including Continental-inspired classics and original home-grown creations.

Only Joking


No choking, we’re only joking.

Q: Why doesn’t McDonald’s serve escargot? A: It’s not fast food!

My neighbour knocked on my door, “I just made synonym buns!” … “Ooooh, just like grammar use to make?” said I.

Q: Why couldn’t the sesame seed leave the casino? A: He was on a roll!
