A few of our favourite foodie finds for the Summer
The new Blood Orange cider, from Thatchers, has fast become my go-to tipple on a warm sunny day.
A fabulous balance between sweet and tart, and bursting with the zesty zing of blood oranges it’s wonderfully refreshing.
This is the second flavoured cider that Somerset cider-makers Thatchers have created.
They launched a Cloudy Lemon Cider in 2020, which was hugely popular, and the new brew looks set to get just as many fans.
On the table
I’m absolutely loving the new Hazy Days outdoor tableware range from Lakeland.
The bright yellows and teals are just so vibrant — even if the weather isn’t always quite as good as one might hope, this range will bring a little ray of sunshine to the table!
It’s super-practical too, as it’s virtually unbreakable and it’s dishwasher safe.
Bring on a summer of eating al fresco!
Feast from the Middle East
I can’t wait to try the new FeastCircle pop-up restaurant that opened in Wells on June 10.
Chef Tariq Nasir has been bringing his authentic Middle Eastern cooking to farmers’ markets in Somerset since the end of lockdown, but now he will be serving up plates from the Market Place Café on Friday and Saturday evenings throughout the summer.
Expect classic Middle Eastern dishes such as hummus, stuffed vine leaves, babaganoush, pastries and kebabs — as well as a few lesser known, but equally delicious, morsels. feastcircle.co.uk
