The Old Dairy Kitchen

Plating upThe thing that prompts me to get motivated to write my blog is often great food, but my kind of great food these days comes with an added level of magic to allow it to register in my catalogue of moments of pleasure.

That magic is meaning. Unless something has meaning and authenticity its value is reduced. Here comes the hippie speech. For many, I believe, we are disillusioned by the glitz and money grabbing machines of yesteryear. If there is passion behind it and somebody is living the dream, we want to be part of it. Read more

Trill Farm, Musbury

We are on a well deserved day out, myself, K and T. The aim of the day is to get some new ideas on living with food allergies and intolerances from the nutritional guru Daphne Lambert of Greencuisine. Daphne is running courses from stunningly located Trill Farm for a year whilst she writes a cookery book. Trill is an amazing charitable set up, run by Romy Fraser  (ex Neals Yard founder), who promote  sustainable healthy living and eating. Everything is done with great passion and rustic eco style. They also have great branding; love the brightly coloured simple imagery.

Highlight of the day is a vitamin packed organic lunch of quinoa salad and rye sourdough followed by a lemon and rosewater almond cake. A stroll through the sunlit woods to view the outdoor yoga platform refreshes for another stint in the kitchen in the afternoon. K, T and I get very excited about dehydrating veg (great when you have a glut and so delicious) and a little overwhelmed at the concept of making your own hemp milk. I am sticking to my Rice Dream.

We leave with some great new tips which we resolve to stick to. For now, at least.

  • Courses run all year and there is a fab Summer Festival in July.
