Spring Lamb Masterclass with The Butchers at Darts Farm – by Lauren Heath

Last week we attended a Spring Lamb Masterclass hosted by The Butchers at Darts Farm. It is run by two brothers, Alastair and Philip David,  who are Master Butchers. Having arrived about 5 to 10 mins early to find that actually we were just about the last ones there, and worried we had got the time wrong, we were greeted by friendly faces and offered … Continue reading Spring Lamb Masterclass with The Butchers at Darts Farm – by Lauren Heath

Greendale Farm Shop, Farringdon

I recently took a trip to Greendale Farm Shop that sits just outside Farringdon near Clyst St Mary.  Like many Farm Shops it has grown from small beginnings, and is now hub of local produce in what I am dubbing the Farm Shop Belt; this runs between Dart’s Farm near Clyst St George, Kenniford Farm Shop at the other end of Clyst St George, and … Continue reading Greendale Farm Shop, Farringdon

Artisan Chai, Fore St. (OPENING 6th NOVEMBER)

Fore St. is without a single doubt my favourite part of Exeter.  It has so much character and it is occupied by a strong community of shop/business owners who are all driven to make this a hub of independent retail in Exeter.  It is the home to the Glorious Art House Cafe and many other excellent places to eat and drink, and it has recently acquired … Continue reading Artisan Chai, Fore St. (OPENING 6th NOVEMBER)

Sylvain’s Little French Cakes: Pattiserie Perfection

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

Dart’s Farm (Deli Cafe – 5/5)

Dart’s Farm is a curious place, because unlike many people who might read this, I remember when it was still Picfresh.  Right, so lets go back 20 years ago and Ronald Dart owned a funny little farm shop that, in my mind, was always tacked on to the side of a larger barn.  That barn is roughly where the Deli is now and if you … Continue reading Dart’s Farm (Deli Cafe – 5/5)

Exeter’s first ever Vegan Bake Sale

I was pottering about on ThisIsExeter and saw this of interest.  Exeter’s first ever Vegan Bake Sale!  I don’t like lifting text from other websites, but this is quite worth it.  Please visit This Is Exeter, so I don’t feel too guilty!  The Baboon is to fulfil the random image quota…. “It is being held from 11am to 2pm at Exeter’s Palace Gate Centre, and … Continue reading Exeter’s first ever Vegan Bake Sale

Eating Exeter visits the Exeter Food Festival 2013

A long time has been spent writing this post.  In fact this post started off life as a post in a third-party piece of blogging software that got added to over the week and then managed to become the victim of a mistimed OS upgrade, thankfully the photos were saved but the text is now long gone, historical bits lost to the God of Unsaved … Continue reading Eating Exeter visits the Exeter Food Festival 2013

Exeter University Farmer’s Market: A little gem.

Every so often (dates listed here) Exeter University holds a Farmer’s Market on the Forum Piazza which is just outside The Forum oddly enough and the Northcott Theatre.  The latest redevelopment of this area means that there is a central place to hold such events, and the large wide space of the piazza means that it can accomodate a large gathering of bodies with room to … Continue reading Exeter University Farmer’s Market: A little gem.

Lunch: Gregg’s Pepperoni Pizza

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

Exeter Farmer’s Market

South Street in Exeter is mostly filled with estate agent’s, low-rent restaurants and The George’s Meeting House, the better Wetherspoons pub in Exeter by far.  Such other delights include a couple of churches, a KFC and some ruins.  It is the average bit of Exeter which, every Thursday transforms itself with the Farmer’s Market. For foodies are quite spoilt for choice in Exeter.  Darts Farm … Continue reading Exeter Farmer’s Market

The Exploding Bakery, Queen Street

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
