Slow Cheese 2013

Slow Cheese 2013 Stefanie Metcalf, group leader of our local Slow Food Devon group, wrote a lovely blog piece about her experience at Slow Cheese 2013 in Bra, Italy.

The biennial event is a festival, a feast and a celebration. Stalls line the streets of the small town of Bra where at every turn there are producer stands, tastings, inspiring talks and discussions accompanied by regional street foods, a fine selection of local wines and even international beer tents. In true Italian style this […]

Cook your own Forgotten Food – Huntingdon Fidget Pie

Cook your own Forgotten Food - Huntingdon Fidget Pie When a name as great  as ‘Huntingdon Fidget pie’ gets mentioned it is hard not to get excited, even though you might not even have an idea what it is or where it comes from.

A quick internet search and I soon learned that this pie hails from the town of Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire, which is well known as the birthplace of Oliver Cromwell, the home of the notorious Earl of Sandwich but not, it would seem, for the Huntingdon Fidget pie.
The Fidget pie is to the Midlands what pasties […]

The Gardener’s Cottage – A Slow Food story

The Gardener's Cottage - A Slow Food story Slow Food Week 2013 was a resounding success. The movement and our programmes were beautifully represented through sell-out events hosted up and down the country while a further 6 Forgotten Food products were launched receiving some fantastic coverage (and since we’ve launched another two!).

Two of our newest Chef Alliance members, Dale Mailley and Edward Murray, decided to introduce themselves to Slow Food by hosting a Producers’ dinner at their restaurant The Gardener’s […]
