Food and Travel
We spent the Easter holiday weekend in Val Müstair, a valley in the far eastern part of Switzerland close to the Italian and Austrian border.
Wild garlic and nettles are the first to arrive in spring and are much needed greens after the winter season.
Our second week on the Canary Islands was spent on the second smallest island of La Gomera.
This year we decided to head to the Canary Islands again to soak up the sun and go hiking. Our first stop was the smallest and youngest in the archipelago, El Hierro.
Spring is in the air and my chives are little green shoots. I can't wait to eat the first fresh herbs and lettuce straight out of the garden.
It took a while for winter to arrive but when it did, it really did! We packed up our snowshoes and decided to head out to the mountains.
Before heading to a conference in Exeter, we spent a day in London and Windsor.
After the hustle and bustle of Christmas, we spent the days around the New Year holiday quietly with friends.
This year we were lucky enough to visit two very different hotels.
«The challenge of Terra Madre Salone del Gusto 2016 for Slow Food was political, cultural and social: to assert that good, clean and fair food is a human right, something we must all feel part of, and that means loving the earth! We can proudly say that we've succeeded in this challenge.” Gaetano Pascale, President of Slow Food Italy
