G was most excited about trying a pork pie from Samphire, a shop I first read about in Olive last year:
Set in the grounds of a National Trust estate, the shop is lovely and homey. All the food on sale is sourced locally from small producers. And all the meat is from rare-breed animals, reared outdoors to the highest welfare standards.
Giles Coren, the infamous Times restaurant critic, described his pork pie from Samphire as 'the most extraordinary pie I had ever known,' and after one bite G was in complete agreement. Not normally a pork pie eater, I consented to just a taste...and I too was won over!
