No apologies for a brazen plug for the best of British
This awful horse meat scandal has dominated news reports and column inches for the past week or two. At best the whole thing is devious, at worst it's downright criminal.
Last evening, we were kindly invited to a neighbour's home for a farmhouse, kitchen supper. Around the table were an assortment of farmers, country folk, surgeons, wives and families; and of course between the banter and the cross-table chitchat, the headline conversations were the pros and cons of horsemeat contamination.
However, it was the food we were eating, not necessarily the words we were exchanging that I found interesting.
The rib of beef we had for supper was sourced locally from a farm shop. It was delicious and could be traced right back to an Aberdeen Angus beast on a neighbouring farm. The fresh vegetables were bought from a local greengrocer, English in origin, full of flavour and delightful. The pudding was blackberry and apple crumble from the farm's hedgerows and orchard.
