A Tasty Christmas by Catherine Evans :: 07th December 2010

Here at Broome Park Farm I am planning the tastiest Christmas ever! Yesterday I travelled through fog and ice to Denman College, home of the WI to see Mary Berry demonstrate tried and trusted Christmas recipes with a twist, I will definitely be trying her mincemeat galette – shortbread, mincemeat, marzipan and apples. Today the weather was glorious (but very cold!) and I travelled to Strefford Hall Farm Shop for a Discover Local Tasty Christmas event. We walked around the farm, looking at the beef, sheep and hens they keep to supply the farm shop then retreated to the warmth of the farmhouse kitchen for a delicious meal made from Christmas leftovers, expertly prepared by Simon Smith – The Shropshire Chef. After lunch Simon demonstrated how he had prepared lunch and we made bread and butter pudding with left over cake and pannettone and Shropshire Fidget Pie. This is our local dish – a type of pork pie made with cooked pork (we used turkey!), apple sauce, potatoes and crispy bacon – scrumptious!
