Product Review: Piper’s Farm Unsmoked Back Bacon 5/5

Bacon. Breaker of vegetarians, maker of Full English Breakfasts and very hard to cover the smell of. Supermarkets sell it, normally injected with water or treated with chemicals which help it stay preserved for longer so its refreshing to be able to tuck in to what I consider ‘proper bacon’.  And who better to have bought these from.Piper’s Farm are award winning. Just look at … Continue reading Product Review: Piper’s Farm Unsmoked Back Bacon 5/5

The Nobody Inn, Doddiscombleigh, Exeter

In all honesty, I’m not usually one for pub grub. I’m not being snooty or fussy, I’ve just experienced my fair share of bland and boring pub meals, not to mention the microwaved plates of yellow they serve at Weatherspoons’.  However after years of snubbing pub food, a trip to The Nobody Inn in Doddiscombleigh last week opened my eyes to the world fantastic foodie … Continue reading The Nobody Inn, Doddiscombleigh, Exeter

Johnny Does Dinner – The Polytunnel Dinner at Trill Farm, Axminster

You are unlikely to find many foodies who can say that they have a meal in a horticultural polytunnel and cooked for them by a chef, using ingredients from the very polytunnel being dined in. And to be honest, I never thought I would be able to say I am one of those lucky few. But last week Eating Exeter was lucky enough to be … Continue reading Johnny Does Dinner – The Polytunnel Dinner at Trill Farm, Axminster

Iberico Ham & Chorizo from Jamonprive – Product Review

Eating Exeter doesn’t often review products, but we were given the opportunity to taste some fantastic meats sent all the way from Barcelona.  I know this as it had Barcelona on the stamp. Iberian Ham is something of a delicacy in Spain, using Iberian Pigs fed primarily on acorns, this gives the meat a distinct taste and coupled with the traditional processes of curing and … Continue reading Iberico Ham & Chorizo from Jamonprive – Product Review

The Half Moon, Clyst St Mary, Exeter

Sunday lunches are quite a British thing, correct me if I am wrong but I don’t know of another culture that will insist on having roast dinners even in the middle of Summer whilst its baking hot outside.  But like many things in the culinary universe, it is very very easy to (excuse the French) f**k up. For a number of years the legendary Sunday … Continue reading The Half Moon, Clyst St Mary, Exeter
