This is a marriage of Queen of Puddings.
Preparations are now well under way for this year’s Summer Festival, which takes place at the farm on Saturday 21st May.
I have collected cookbooks for many years now and finding new ones to add to my collection always gives me great joy.
I am looking forward to London Craft Week, which returns to the capital next week.
Our animals live a happy and content life on the farm – roaming freely in the fields and living off a grass based, organic diet.
We make this in spring and early summer, when English asparagus is in season, and it pairs well with goat’s cheese.
Last November we launched Agricology – an online and in-field platform offering practical information and advice for farmers about sustainable British agriculture.
At Bamford we celebrate the work of artisans.
One of the things that I most look forward to at this time of year is the arrival of fresh seasonal ingredients from the market garden.
I am so happy to announce that our newly refurbished pizza bar, The Old Spot, will be opening on Friday 15th April at our Kingham farm.
English asparagus will be around for about 6 weeks, and at the beginning of the season it will be tender enough to use every part of the spears; but as the weeks go on it will become a little more woody, so you will need to take off the lower, white parts.
As we celebrate the skills and stories of our artisan makers in store, Daylesford’s resident nutritionist Rhaya Jordan explains why traditional, hand made produce is always the best choice for your health.
This recipe celebrates purple sprouting broccoli. The spelt adds a little texture, as do the garlic crisps and almonds. Crisping the garlic also gives softer bursts of flavour, which complement the broccoli, rather than overpowering it.
My love affair with India began 40 years ago. In that time I have had the privilege of spending time with people, learning from their spirituality and being the recipient of their kindness, warmth and fun.
The official meaning of ‘artisan’ is someone with a skilled trade, who makes quality products by hand.
If there is one tool that we use more than any other at Daylesford it is our hands.
