This ridiculously lovely noodle dish takes just minutes to put together and is by far my favourite emergency dinner (I almost always have cherry tomatoes on the side and miso and spring onions in the fridge). Having tried this dish variously with every type of noodle, I can confirm the best are bouncy, thick udon noodles. If you haven’t got pine nuts in, chopped salted peanuts are a great alternative topping.

This is an update on one of my favourite Green Roasting Tin recipes, a really simple dish of baked orzo with fresh cherry tomatoes. Here, I add in a big square of feta to bake on top of the pasta, along with olives for a briny hit of flavour – all your food groups in one go. It’s perfect for a light dinner on a summer evening.

The in house butchery offers a wide range of meat & cuts and much of the meat is reared on the farm & in the fields surrounding the Farm Shop.

There’s something about the summer weather that brings out the relaxed hippy in us all, and what better way to wind down after a busy day/week at work than to slip on your sandals, pack up your picnic basket and head to the outdoors with your nearest and dearest. Click below for more...
