The perfect choice

Perfect ingredient, Lincolnshire Ulster Prince is making a big splash, the best new potato bar none! At £1.00 per kilo you should be getting these on every dish.  

Weather watch

I have just looked at the weather for the next few days and guess what? More rain is due! Not what we needat all, we need sunshine and warmth as the wet weather is holding lots of crops back. The main problem crops are cauliflower and broccoli with very little available and prices are reaching crazy levels! The best options for me are Summer Primo Cabbage, much underused but beautiful braised in butter and black pepper, it's a massive football sized cabbage for around 60p, great value. James Wellock
