A trip to Winchcombe via memory lane and a tarragon rib-eye steak recipe!

I know we seemed to have abandoned our blog but we are coming back over the next few weeks, we promise! With a full explanation involving morning sickness, babies and so many jobs on we haven't been able to catch our own tails!

But just quickly for now, we just had to celebrate a little and also give all of our amazing friends a huge high five. On bank holiday Monday, we were at Winchcombe Country Show which was also our very first job, back in August of 2014, two years ago. At the time, we were just desperate to get out there and took any job we could find, even selling sandwiches at a small village fair, in what turned out to be a hideously cold, wet and windy day. We seem to remember taking about £25 and most of that was down to Dickon chatting up the WI!

I'm pleased to say that this year, the sun shone, the visitors came and the visitors most definitely loved our pan fried rump steak and the cider battered fish we were serving from our beautiful horsebox.

We have come a long way in two years - I'm pretty sure I have a lot more gray hair, Jake definitely has a lot more stress induced wrinkles, but we are still smiling and loving what we do. So bring on the next two years!

 

And as an extra thank you to you all, here is a recipe which Jake has been using recently at private events, that has literally become my new favourite thing on the planet. Ladies, this is totally un-PC but trust me, serve this to your men and they will love you forever!!
