North Creake Farmers market

This morning I got up early and went with a friend Mary Kemp to North Creake Farmers market. Mary was helping to launch the North Norfolk Food and Drink Festival.It was cold but sunny (well part of the morning was sunny) and I was amazed at the talent & enthusiasm I found there. I met my hero Tim Kinnaird the maker of macarons to die for. The loveliest bloke you could ever wish to meet. I bought some of his rhubarb & creme brulee .... well actually I can't remember what they're called but look at them!!! There were actually 4 of them for lunch tomorrow but hey there will only be three of us eating and I HAD to see what they tasted like. I was so inspired by the fresh produce that I decided my Easter Sunday lunch menu there and then. So... it's celeriac & roasted garlic soup followed by 8 hour lamb on a bed of fennel and onion (now with Mary's recommendation of a little bit of Marsala in the bottom of the dish), purple sprouting broccoli and roasted jerusalem artichokes.Thanks mary for a wonderful day in a very special part of the world.
