Time Flies!

So season’s sprung early, the pan went on and the next time I look up,  it’s  September ! So for a very, very quick catch up on the last few months, here goes:

Spring started with a hop and a skip into the Marmalade Awards and I was very lucky to win a Silver Award for my Organic Marmalade at this wonderful festival.  This world class award is not only open to working marmalade makers, it’s open to everyone so please take a look and  support it by entering  it’s great fun so go on and give it a go http://www.dalemainmarmaladeawards.co.uk/

Jam is not just for toast! Sad times were then to follow, the world’s greatest cook, my inspiration, my mom  passed away in my arms. A difficult, and very heart breaking time. It all happened around the time I was filmed for Home Comforts with James Martin,  sadly she missed it by just two days! She loved watching James Martin and I am only hoping that she got to see it from above!  If you haven’t seen it check it out here /www.youtube.com/watch?v=c8Qar-zphvc. I sat and watched it when it was aired on TV drinking champagne from jam jars with friends

Jam Cocktail I filled the rest of the days making Jam and fitted in a few other activities which  included a jam cocktail master class at The White Buck in Burley along  with Conker Gin and Belinda Clarke marshmallows.  I also spent a delightful afternoon at Sparsholt food festival giving a jam workshop and managed to fit in the New Forest Show and Carfest as well. To Round off nicely, I was lucky enough to be invited on  a fascinating garden tour of the Chewton Glen with Darren and Anne-some of the best gardener’s I know www.chewtonglen.com


So, what’s next?  Lunch on the 12th September with the wonderful Dining Divas at the Captains Club Hotel all in aid of a very special charity Oakhaven Hospice  www.oakhavenhospice.co.uk
