Growers, Cookers & Eaters 2015 – presented by the Trentham Food Hub,
Trentham Mechanics Institute, Saturday, May 2

Once more I am heading up the road to Trentham.

Having attended last year’s event and also hitting Trentham in the course of acquiring the Black Devil, this is becoming a familiar journey.

Once more, too, I am flying solo so must navigate, slightly nervously, the lottery of who my table companions will be.

On that account, I need have had no fears for I am blessed to share the evening with …

… Jim and Curtis, Natasha and Michael, and Phil and Jill “from Springhill”.

Thanks so much to them for some wonderfully entertaining company!

The food – see menu below – is, as expected, all good – and some of it, to my tastes, much, much better than that.

Bravo once more to the chefs and amazing farmers and growers from the region – so much passion and love!

My highlights?

Well, actually they’re a little surprising …

The skordalia served with potato bread, the former silky and luscious and packed with tremendous flavour.

The heritage carrots with yogurt and leaves – so sweet and tangy.

The apple flavour explosions found amid the roast vegetables that accompany the twice-cooked rolled pork with apple three ways.

The accompanying slaw is ace, too!
