  • We first met Kate and Rupert at The Source Trade Show earlier this year. The husband and wife team were brimming with enthusiasm and chatted passionately about their micro-business “Happy Butter Ghee’’. Ghee is a type of clarified butter that originates from India and is commonly used in South Asian, Iranian and Arabic cuisines.  Kate…

  • Summer might be feel a long way away right now, but that hasn’t stopped us from craving a little bit of ice cream.. Especially when it comes to the sort of tempting flavours created by The Cowlick Creamery. We met Carly and Rory at this year’s source trade show and were immediately drawn to…

  • Interview by Gabriella Tiny Marmalade Co. There are very few marmalade companies that can boast that they’ve graced the pages of Vogue Magazine; but then again The Tiny Marmalade Company is no ordinary foodie enterprise. Run by Paloma Hermoso from her family home in Exeter, this is one foodie business that is no…

  • Interview: Manna from Devon

    14th November 2016

    If there’s one healthy fad that I’m happy to be getting on board with it’s juicing.

While there were certainly mixed results (note to self: banana…

  • Interview: Angel Chops

    27th July 2016

    This next interview comes with a quick word of caution: Exposure to Angel Chops beautiful cakes may lead to a serious craving for sweet things. So before you scroll down remember that you have been warned! I first came across Angel Chops purely by accident, on a lazy afternoon while I was…

  • There is nothing better than being in the presence of, and having conversation with, an expert in their own field. After my meeting with Ken – Master Beekeeper of Blackbury Honey Farm – I was immediately struck by the overwhelming passion he and his family have for their work. Ken…

  • Interview: Feniton Foods

    16th July 2016

    It’s rather ironic that the first time I came across husband and wife team Feniton Foods was at The Exeter Food Festival,  considering that their kitchens are just a small walk away from my home. I remember being drawn to their stall by the promise of colourful fudge and homemade hummus – not…

  • You’ve no doubt been hearing a lot about East Devon’s newest foodie destination, THE PIG at Combe. Set in 3,500 acres of exquisite Devonshire countryside, this beautiful ivy clad Elizabethan manor house certainly isn’t what you’d expect given it’s name. From what we’ve gathered so far, it’s a place where comfort and style are interswined –…
