Hover over the What’s This Blog About page and you’ll see the posts/recipes by category.

What is this blog about? One November, now receding into the very distant past, the beloved came home having been to a local farm shop and bought a large (55lbs) bag of potatoes. That’s a lot of potatoes. So this blog started as a daily record of the different ways Kate, The Beloved, Poppy, Arlo, Grannie as well as assorted guests were going to eat all those spuds.  And eat them we did.

However, things have moved on from then. The potatoes were replaced by more surfeits  – of parsnips (not so versatile, and not as likable  (contested statement), but an even greater challenge) summer gluts of cucamelons and squash and then apples too. We’re very lucky really.

The beloved has grown various weird and wonderful things such as skirrit and achocha and quinoa – and we’ve eaten it all. Some is more successful than others.

Thanks very much for looking.

In case you’re interested I’ve another blog too – paintings and drawings; altogether different.
