Cakes – Brett and Bailey Joe says “If you’ve been following us for a while, you’ll know we love our Christmas puds. And the judges at the Great Taste Awards clearly love them too, as this year they gave us a coveted gold star for our handmade luxury pudding. Made with Pedro Ximénez sherry-steeped figs, warming spices and matured in generous glugs of fine French calvados, one of these will really hit the spot on Christmas Day – and as only a handful of companies won a prize for their pud in 2018, we’re delighted to say that ours is one of the very best in the country. We also have a small amount of 12-month matured versions, made to exactly the same recipe, but with generous extra helpings of calvados while the flavours develop over the year – our finest pudding yet. Come and check them out on this Saturday’s stall, or order now from our Christmas shop. More festive products, including our luxury Christmas cakes, coming next week.

Natural wines – Wine Scouts Pedro says “I will open the new vintage of the rich and lovely red wine Clos du Gravillas Sous Les Cailloux des Grillons from Minervois in Southern France. On the nose aromas of blackberries, figs and red cherries. On the palate, savoury and fresh with notes of cinnamon, cloves and liquorice leading to a spicy finish. An unoaked red blend of Syrah, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mourvèdre, Counoise, Grenache Noir and Terret Gris. Lovely purity here: this has freshness, focus and, as you would expect from Minervois, a refreshing gravelly grip. Organic and unfiltered. Come taste!”
