CakesBrett and Bailey  “This week we’ve been making the most of summer gluts and jamming as much fruit as we possibly can. First of all, our plum and rose jam is finally back in stock – the first couple of batches even use plums grown in Crystal Palace. We’ve also come up with a brand new strawberry and tarragon jam which is chunky, fruity, herbaceous and DELICIOUS. It might even be our nicest jam yet. Find them making their debuts on this Saturday’s stall alongside our luscious apricot and vanilla jam and Great Taste Award-winning marmalade. On the cake front we’ll have pink lemonade, chocolate Guinness, pistachio and honey, raspberry and lemongrass cheesecake, and gluten-free lemon and rosemary drizzle. We’ll also have salted chocolate brownies, apricot and pine nut bakewells, summer berry crumbles, triple chocolate cookies, sticky buns, cardamom knots, and a choice of dulce de leche or blueberry and bourbon bomboloni. Come along early to get it before it melts!  Need a whole cake next Saturday? Make sure you order online by Wednesday night to avoid disappointment. See you soon!”

Tomorrow I will open a bottle of a lovely, natural white wine from Gaillac in South West France. The delicious Champetre Mauzac Blanc made by organic producer Laurent Cazottes is an ultra pure example of the variety Mauzac: fresh, crunchy apples with hints of acacia and pear-blossom leading into palates reminiscent of sage and other green herbs, and a mouthwatering finish. Lightly filtered. Perfect for a hot weekend. Come taste!”
