Coffee house at home 1365 2048 Thea Welsford

Coffee – most of us can’t get through the day without a cup or two.

Cream of the crop

Cream of the crop 779 516 Thea Welsford

With acres of pasture land and more hours of sunshine than the rest of the UK, the Isle of Wight is perfect for grazing – and happy, well-fed cows mean great dairy produce. Island farmers not only produce top-quality milk (some of which still has the cream layer intact at the top) but churn out golden butter, silky smooth clotted…

Bakers gonna bake: Ginger Biscuits 1500 2000 Jo Butt

If you’re at a loss what to do today, there’s nothing better than whiling away an hour in the kitchen on a dull and blustery day – and you end up with a home-made sweet treat to eat!

Quaran-Green 2000 2000 The Editor

We’re not ones to productivity shame, as let’s face it, we’re all busy just trying to exist right now (juggling key working, homeschooling, cooking, cleaning and shopping during these difficult circumstances is enough to keep anyone on their toes), but now is a great time to get growing fruit and vegetables. Whether you’re a green-fingered gardener or a keen-been looking…

Sunday Best – get your roast on – lockdown style 1080 1080 Thea Welsford

Days of the week don’t really mean a lot right now but nothing says Sunday more than a nice roast dinner with all the trimmings – something us Brits do pretty well. As we are always telling you, the Island is a very special place for produce, famously known as England’s ‘garden Isle’, our unique climate and landscape yields some…

A walk on the wild side 1456 1000 The Editor

Smell that? That light waft of garlic on the wind can only mean one thing, wild garlic season is well and truly upon us!  Running from April until June roughly, depending on the weather conditions, you only need to take a walk amongst the Island’s shady woodlands to find wild garlic – Allium Ursinum to give it it’s Latin name,…

Fish and Chip Fridays (or any day) 1500 1500 Thea Welsford

If you are struggling to know which day it is… We can let you know, it is in fact Friday!

Star of the show for Spring – Asparagus

Star of the show for Spring – Asparagus 1600 1200 Thea Welsford

Some things never change – there are things when times are tough we can rely on.
