  1. Delightfull blog; very complete, great details; makes me hungry reading the articles. Living here in Japan, I’m filled with nostalgia. (I am able to find Hamlyn’s Scottish Porridge Oats and Bran from a supplier in Tokyo, which is a must for me. Does wonders for the cholesterol!) Reading your turkey recipes, I can almost smell the results. Wonderful.

    I am an Assistant Producer at ITV Productions and we are currently searching for potential contestants for Britain’s Best Dish. In case you haven’t seen the show before Britain’s Best Dish is an annual competition hosted by ITV for amateur cooks. In it we look for Britain’s best starter, main course and dessert. The winner of the competition receives the accolade of Britain’s Best Dish and takes home a £10,000 cash prize. We’re starting another series in the coming weeks and will be holding our regional auditions in May. As you are clearly a keen foodie you are just the sort of person we are looking for so if you are at all interested in taking part or know anyone who may be interested and haven’t already featured in the Best Dish studio finals, please email ASAP with your name, contact number, and where you’re from to and we’ll be in touch soon.

    I love the Dales, especially Swaledale, and Wensleydale cheese is my favorite cheese (and it is so difficult to find in California!) I’m delighted to find your blog, and I look forward to following your adventures.
