News Round

Wed 10 Jan 2007

In my ramblings about Cumbria I forgot to mention two important foodie facts. The first is that the town of Grange-over-Sands, while apparently home to only one pub, is also home to Higginsons - apparently the best butchers in Britain. Quite a claim to fame. Having munched on their gamekeeper pie (pork, chicken and stuffing - it was very good), and also a hot chicken pie, I'd have to say they're pretty good. The store bright and cheery - with a good range of both fresh meats and smallgoods.

Also in Grange-over-Sands you may come across Ainsworth Delicatessen. This little deli is rammed full of all sorts of interesting things - and lots of cheeses! If you're after an ingredient you can't source in the usual suspects, you may well find it at Ainsworth. And if you're not after something in particular, I'd say it's worth popping in just to have a look at the impressive and very beautiful range of dried pasta!

And finally ... a site of the week ... in keeping with all the Christmas presents here at Eating Leeds we have Make My Sushi. It doesn't seem fully fleshed out yet but does have good tips on rice and rice vinegar.
