Our local village Hythe was buzzing today as the French Market was in town.
I’m not sure how many times a year the French Market comes to Hythe but it certainly attracted the locals as the sun shone down on the dozen or so stalls selling everything from French baguettes (freshly baked in a trailer beside the stall) to vintage records and French classic Movies on DVD.
As I went from stall to stall with my bag growing with items I found wonderful globe artichokes, heirloom tomatoes, garlic from Southern France, romanesco cauliflowers, pates, dried hams, Brittany honey, patisseries to make your mouth water and of course the French strings of onions. Oh dear I am sounding like Ratty in the Wind in the Willows describing his picnic hamper contents to Moley before they set off in their boat down the river.
Well after an hour my shopping bag full home I went and what a feast we are going to have this weekend.
Our next show is Warner’s new show, The Midsummer Motorhome Show at Stoneleigh Park in Warwickshire.
A weekend of Rock & Roll, Jive Dance and comedy will keep campers smiling and dancing all weekend. Four nights of entertainment are included in your camping fee with headline acts including Matchbox, The Houndogs, Peter Kay Tribute and Elvis Throughout the Years.
Carrot Beetroot Soup is an easy and healthy soup that has not only a wonderful colour but a great taste. Soups are perfect to make in a thermal cooker as it allows them to slowly cook and develop their flavours while keeping the vitamins and nutrients locked in the cooker.
