While on the subject of winter foods. We have harvested our artichokes and this dish is simply lovely. Firstly parboil the artichokes in lightly salted water. Then drain and melt butter in a small frypan, add artichokes and fry gently, I like to add maple syrup and roasted sesame seed along with a bit of sesame oil and fry a bit more then place in a slow oven. Nigella seeds can be added which enhances the slightly earthy flavour with the smokiness of the nigella.

Cooks Gardens has reopened this morning. A piece of flashing on the Whiskas Grandstand roof was starting to lift in the heavy winds last night. An assessment was arranged first thing this morning and we’ve organised a contractor to secure it. We're good to go!

It's today! We're excited! See you soon!
