Cod with a Lemon Dijon Mustard & Parsley Crust

I was delighted to be invited to take part in the Maille Culinary Challenge for March and April. They asked a number of foodie bloggers to come up with a new recipe using one of their wonderful products.

A Lovely Lentil & Spinach pie

I can't take the credit for this one, its a recipe from Nigel Slater's Kitchen Diaries II. Such a gorgeous book full of lovely simple recipes and one I often use. You can find the original recipe here on the Guardian website but I recommend you check out Nigel's website too as its just fabulous.

Farndon Fields Farm Shop, Market Harborough

A very quick post after a crazy busy week! I just wanted to give a little shout out to Farndon Fields Farm Shop. This place is fantastic - imagine the best farm shop you can and you'll be about there. Just on the outskirts of Market Harborough, Farndon Fields is a treasure trove for local suppliers with enough veg to feed an army, lots of which comes from their own farm. Their in house butchers sells meat from Leicestershire and Northamptonshire farmers and I was really pleased to also see some great local brands on the shelves, including Warner Edwards gin and Lincolnshire Poacher cheese. The food is enough of a draw for me but they also have some lovely gift items too. 

Now take a virtual walk through these unassuming doors and see what wonders await (and if visiting for real... maybe wait til pay day! You'll spend a fortune!)

Review: Seven, Derby

I have to admit that although I call myself a 'Midlands foodie' I really don't have too much on the blog on where to eat in Derby. That's quite bad for saying that I worked in Castle Donington for almost 6 years and have some good friends from that neck of the woods.  

Anyway, time to rectify that, starting with my visit to newly opened Seven near Pride Park. I ate there earlier this week with my Mum. For those of you who read my blog, you'll know that self-titled Mummy Bites likes to get involved in what I do and she was really looking forward to stepping into the hubby's shoes for an evening of reviewing.
