Christmas is just around the corner and to get you into the festive spirit, I’ve made some Chelsea Buns and instead of putting them into a rectangular baking tin, it’s quite fun to arrange the buns into the shape of a Christmas Tree for their second prove before going in the oven and then decorating them with glace cherries and glace icing. Still a ‘Share … Continue reading Recipe: Festive Chelsea Buns – by Sue Stoneman

For Eating Exeter, product testing is a bit of a rarity. Once Gourmet Garden sent us a whole bunch of squeezy herbs which I tried to love but failed to, and now and again we get the odd thing sent through which either gets a write up because its lovely or casually ignored if it is just naff. But this is the first time that … Continue reading Sylvain’s Little French Cakes: Pattiserie Perfection

My next foray in the the world of baking has been Oaty White Chocolate Biscuits. The recipe is courtesy of the BBC, and before you start thinking these will be anything like the ones you get in the supermarket, then think again. They are more like White Chocolate flapjacks, crunchy and very sweet (depending on how much Golden Treacle you use),… Continue reading Oaty White Chocolate Biscuits
It isn’t often that I leave a restaurant, tea-room or any other place that serves cream teas saying how nice the scones were. In my life, I have spent a happy 32 years in Devon and despite this my exposure to Cream Teas (Cream first…) has been quite minimal. But Killerton Kitchen, a small tea-room/cafe that sits at the back of Killerton House nr Broadclyst, … Continue reading Killerton Kitchen Restaurant, Broadclyst, Exeter (5/5)
Apologies to those who follow Eating Exeter on Twitter (@eatingexeter) if you have already seen this. But I had to share another one of Recipe Vintage’s scanned in recipe cards from the 60’s. (What is the right way, 60’s or sixties when you’re writing?) This is ‘Economical Light Fruit Cake’, so called because its meant to be fluffy and cheap. A bit like a bird, … Continue reading Economical Light Fruit Cake Recipe (courtesy of Recipe Vintage)
Pickwick Fish Pie 1970′s style (courtesy of Recipe Vintage) I am currently looking at digitising my collection of vintage recipe cards. Inspired by the BBC’s failed attempt at digitising their back-catalogue of broadcasts, I felt that this would be the perfect time to start scanning in some of my oldest and most cherished recipes from my collection. Image taken from: http://www.etsy.com/listing/88439516/marguerite-pattens-recipe-box-with-cards So here is the first … Continue reading Pickwick Fish Pie, a seventies classic.
Under the heat lamps it didn’t look too bad, but when the chap behind the counter put it in the bag it seemed to go about absorbing the bag in to it with the grease that bled out of it uncontrollably like some sort of skewered pizza shaped rat that cost £1.15. Credit to Gregg’s, they do what they do really well. Baked goods, cheap and hot. … Continue reading Lunch: Gregg’s Pepperoni Pizza
A long time ago it was a gift shop. And then it carried on being a gift shop up to recently when Oggy Oggy moved in. The students like their food and here is the answer. Do we need another one? Maybe we do but surely we’ve got enough eating places in Queen Street now? Just my personal opinion. Continue reading New Oggy Oggy in Queen St.
I originally started writing about The Exploding Bakery on my personal blog here. When I first realised that Juice Moose had been replaced by this intriguing establishment, I had to tell everyone and wrote a small article about it. But I thought that a proper review on a proper website would do it justice, as it really deserves it!. The Exploding Bakery is, as a … Continue reading The Exploding Bakery, Queen Street
