• Cheese of the Week • We're a little late this week, but look at these little cuties! Weighing in just at just under 2kg, the Quickes Mature Cheddar Truckles have all of the flavour you'd expect from a traditional large format cloth cheddar. They say good things come in small packages.. #cotw#cheese#truckle#quickes#england 📷 @robs_cheese
My final year of training as a master herbalist saw me under the tutelage of a remarkable woman. Once a G.P in the 1960's, she turned her back on conventional medicine to study clinical herbal medicine.
I was among her final 3 students before her retirement to southern France where she bought a chateau with her husband.
She recently emailed me to say her move was going smoothly, but asked would I like something she'd had in her family since the early 1900's. She expressed that maybe I could use them for my herbs, as her grandmother had used them on their farm.
Little did I know that I'd be overjoyed when I saw them - she'd left them with her friend near Bungay for me to collect.
