Chilterns Food Magazine is a superb local mag, beautifully crafted with stunning photos championing local producers and suppliers in the Chiltern Hills. As an avid follower and local producer and supplier, we got an invite to their 1st summer party. A fab relaxed affair held at the wonderful Blue Tin Produce Farm Shop.
First off, very grateful to have been a part of the evening. Well organised by the lovely Hugh and team.
The Blue Tin Produce Farm Shop, about 50 minutes from Marlow, is definitely worth a visit if you have a day to amble around and get there. The location is beautiful and the produce in the shop delightful and reasonably priced, all served with a smile. I bagged myself a few goodies as pressies for others. A great range of local produce from jams and chutneys, local meats and sauces plus lovely hand crafted crockery and other ornaments, gins and more. There is a tasty looking selection of foods for the cafe area as well.
For this special evening though we had samples of delicious beef in yorkshire puds made from the farms hand-built smoker plus goodies that were sublime from The Bowler street food van. Finally some melt in the mouth brownies from Tin Kitchen. Yummo.
The selection of people in attendance was varied with many familiar faces which were lovely to see. With Donna from Marlow FM/seriously Good food, to Louise from Nordik Kitchen Stories, Marcello from the Grocer shops and one of our supportive customers Hannah Jacques who makes superb cakes as seen at www.hannah-bakes.co.uk plus Mark Lord who is a fantastic photographer who has taken many photos for the magazine and various producers including ourselves in the local area. His Instagram page is beautiful and worth a follow.
Wonderful to meet and catch up with many others too, a few too many to name. Hugh is very personable and gave a lovely speech about the magazine and the work they do and a thank you to everyone for the support. The area we live in is full of amazing people, producers and suppliers. We need to keep supporting one another and growing as a strong community. It was exciting to be a part of, and something I hope continues to grow and flourish. Everyone who visits us is part of this movement and in turn we thank you greatly.
