I don't normally do a post without food pictures, recipes and the like, but I just felt the need to jot down what a busy week its been for Lancashire Food this week. The week started pretty calmly with the start of Slow Food Week, we have been working with Slow Food UK on their ark of Forgotten Foods and creating a post for their website and the blog about Goosnargh cakes.
I then found out that we had a our tomato ketchup recipe featured in Modern Vintage Magazine, a popular online vintage magazine.
On the same day we also received notification that the recipe for Chocolate courgette spelt cake (featuring Agave nectar) was to be used by the Groovy Food Company in their competition from the Clandestine Cake club.
Midweek, we also took part in our first live Google+ hangout with Booths and their #BoothsCookalong and had the great pleasure of virtually hanging out with non other than Edd Kimber, Winner of the First series of Great British Bake off , whilst the chef Rob produced delicious Trout, Formby asparagus and pico de gallo in their store in Media city. I just love how Booths have embraced modern communications despite being a very long established family grocery company.
Last but not least we had an email from non other than Jamie Oliver's production company requesting assistance in seeking out another "forgotten" Lancashire delicacy. So as you can see its been a busy week and remember that this is our hobby. So seeing its such beautiful weather here in Lancashire, were having a day off today ! and a trip to the seaside.
