Little Missenden food festival

There are 85 stalls confirmed for this weekend’s festival of food & drink in Little Missenden.  So as the forecast is dreary and the event is mostly undercover, what better way to spend this weekend than by stocking up on lots of yummy food products before heading back to the comfort of your home to enjoy them.  With 15 free of charge workshops, demonstrations and more, this Festival is set to be a great foodie day out!  Visit – lovefoodfestivals.co.uk for a full list of exhibitors, reduced rate advance tickets and workshop reservations.

Chef Profile – Will Hughes

Head Chef at The Crown Hotel
Old Amersham


Having interviewed Will the other week, I was delighted to learn that The Crown has just earned an AA Rosette for the quality of its food, which the AA uses to describe restaurants that “serve food prepared with care, understanding and skill, using good quality ingredients” and ” achieve a standard that stands out in their local area.”  

Considering The Crown’s close neighbour, The Artichoke has been named AA Restaurant of the Year 2013-14 (well worth a visit if money is no object) this is a fantastic achievement for The Crown which has only recently been taken over by new owners.  Click here for Will’s profile…

Lunch box luxury

Now that the kids have been back at school for several weeks, you may, like me, be running out of ideas to vary the contents of their lunchbox from day-to-day.  So we’ve linked up with nutritionist Jenny Tschiesche – the Lunchbox Doctor – to give you some ideas.  Click here to find out more…

YOU FOOD recommends…
Herbal Heaven … from two great tea suppliers

As a food lover I’m always looking for exciting new flavour sensations that aren’t going to pile on the pounds or edge me ever closer to alcoholism!

Having been a fan of herbal teas for a while, I was delighted to stumble across two fabulous tea companies recently.  Click here to find out more and access their websites to order online …
