So welcome back Me, I haven't got my ass into gear to write anything getting on for nearly a year due to a few reasons:
1) moving house and the subsequent lack of organisation
2) a massive bout of laziness
3) the urge just hasn't been there, and when it has, it's been a fleeting flash in the pan.
Upshot being that what is to follow, on a REGULAR basis (and by regular, I don't mean annual) is an unmitigated exploration of the UK's fabulous variety of specialist, local producers. Acquired wherever they happened to be found...farmer's markets, working farms, delis, random kitchens/gardens, pubs, restaurants, the more obscure the better so any recommendations or ideas welcome...
Sponge-like and absorption-friendly, bring it on!!
