Sticky Chocolate Gingerbread cake

A couple of weeks ago here in Marketing we got a rather tasty email from a member of the team. Helen had decided that in line with the broadcast of the Great British Bake Off and to stave off the impending winter blues she was going to challenge her baking prowess and every week bake something from the Bake Off cookbook (a birthday present from earlier this year). In the week we would all get to vote for our bake of choice from a small selection and then on Friday Helen would bring her cakey/pastry wares into the office for us to eat and – get this – score, based on baking skill, yumminess and appearance!

So obviously we thought this would be a good opportunity to do a bit of tasty blogging if you will. Each week we’ll upload images of the bake, the results of our online polling, the recipe she followed and any little side notes that we feel worthy of publication.

This is week one!

A few weeks ago we were invited to 7th Rise – a secret cottage, found on the Roseland Peninsula on the edge of the Carrick Roads, only accessible by foot or boat. Set up by Thom Hunt, it’s a retreat where he shares his knowledge of the wilderness and love for the outdoors world. It’s a place to go where you can step outside of your everyday day routine and get back to some bare basics, with campfire making, fishing, foraging, hunting and wild cooking. We were intrigued so snapped up the invite, here’s a little bit about our day…

With our gorgeous SS13 range taking inspiration from the beautiful Isles of Scilly we’ve been out exploring and recently discovered what is possibly the world’s smallest dairy. So of course we supplied them with a load of Handybands to wear whilst hard at work! Kate from Troytown Farm on the tiny island of St Agnes tells us more…

foraging in far west cornwall

posted on March 14th, 2013 by sian

One of our Graphic Designers, Elly, got out and about last weekend with a trip to the depths of West Cornwall on a mission to forage… Here she tells us all about it.

Last Sunday was a very special day in that I decided to make good a new year’s resolution that I’ve been making for the past five years: learn to forage. I hate spending money, and if there is anything free to be had I’m first in the queue and will come round for seconds gladly. Our countryside and coastal areas boast a great deal of edible delights for the (responsible) taking, and as someone who is happiest running around outside, it seemed only right to combine my love of all things natural with my inclination to frugality.
