I'm Hattie, I live on a pedigree Hereford cattle farm in the heart of Leicestershire and my family has also been growing Woodland Mushrooms for over 30 years. Having grown up on a family run farm all my life, i'm passionate about all things homemade & homegrown. From delicious fresh fruit & vegetables, homegrown beef & lamb to carefully homemade chutney's, preserves & jams - I love them all!
I'm very new to blogging, however I want to share with you all the amazing recipes I have learn't over the years from my Mum and Granny. My Granny has endless recipes hidden away on tatty old pieces of paper, which no doubt will get lost in the years to come. I believe these recipes should be shared, so that everyone can appreciate the tasty recipes that have been in my family for years. I want to bring back the traditional British dishes that has kept our country fed & going for generations. Most of the recipes I share with you will be delicious, homemade and cooked from scratch.
As i'm about to head back to University for my final year I will also share with you my foodie findings and adventures throughout the year & how eating at Uni can be more than just opening a can, heating in the microwave or ordering a take away.
I also love photography & enjoy capturing day to day life and all my food with my iPhone or Camera. I will post my recipes, photographs & share my expereinces and journey along the way. I hope you enjoy my blog & any feedback will be great!
