If I had to endorse a word, it would be LOCAL; I live, breathe, and of course eat local. Wherever possible, I support local producers and specifically local Lincolnshire producers. Being a true yellow-belly, I try and incorporate a little bit of Lincolnshire in all of my dishes. Even if it’s just a vegetable or herb grown in my garden or poly-tunnel, it has to have a hint of Lincolnshire.
Of course I do venture out of the county, and am always interested in new ingredients, and meeting new producers. I am passionate about the ethics and provenance of the food I use, and being from a farming background, I have huge respect for all food producers, both regionally and nationally.
