I’ve decided to start a new blog series called Make Eat Get Read Go that looks at the things I want to do and discover in the next month. Some I’ve heard on the grapevine, some from friends and some I’ve spotted on my travels. You’ll notice there is a slight Derby bias with the March edition.
Honey Cloud Pancakes
It’s traditional that we have one treat breakfast during the weekend. During the week breakfasts are usually a hastily eaten fruit bagel or bowl of porridge so at the weekend it’s nice to sit down and take our time. These Honey Cloud Pancakes from Things We Make are next on the list. They’ll also help satisfy my current addiction to berries.
Biscuit Letterpress Coasters
Ink & Thread is a fabulous independent store in Derby that sells lots of quirky British design through their shop and online. I don’t think I can resist biscuit shaped coasters.
GBBO Learn to Bake
This GBBO spin-off book Learn to Bake hasn’t been as big a hit as other books in the series,but it deserves to be. It doesn’t feature recipes from the series but a good solid selection of baking recipe suitable for the family. I’ve lost count how many copies of this book I’ve given away so when I spotted a copy for £3 in a local charity shop I decided I would keep this copy for myself.
Fabulous Places – Spring Market
I went to my first Fabulous Places event when Debs, who runs it, started out 4 years ago. Over the years her events have grown and it’s the only local food/lifestyle event I’ll go out of my way for. Even my mum & sister have travelled over from Liverpool to attend Fab Places events. Debs carefully selects the local companies who attend and you are always guaranteed a good choice of high quality food and gift stalls. The Spring Market is being held at Derby Roundhouse, Sunday 23rd March and is just £1 to get in.
Now just need to decide what to eat while I’m there. Will it be Buffalo Brownies, Lilley & Lambert Marshmallows, Bourneville Waffle Company or something from the mobile pizza oven.
