Stunning weather in Bristol this weekend. We cooled down on Saturday evening with a brilliant alfresco supper at Zero Degrees. This was the goats’ cheese, roasted peppers, black olive and chilli pizza. Plus a huge jug of their own pale ale (brewed within paces of our table).

Prue couldn’t have been more charming or hospitable. She and her sunny kitchen provided a very pleasant morning’s photography, and a rather lovely article in Crumbs. […]Read More True Prue

On holiday in Brittany we foraged enough moules for a half decent starter. [Click image for full screen view.] A few too many barnacles for text-book presentation, but they don’t affect the taste. Shallot, white wine, parsley. Heat till they open….Read More A bit of mussel

Just back from a wonderful couple of weeks in Brittany. Curiously, my holiday snaps seem to be dominated by one subject more than any other. These were all taken at French markets. Cancale, Dinard and St Malo. Exploring food stalls, buying, trying…Read More In the market for food photography
