 What are you most looking forward to at Ludlow Food Festival? 

The Ludlow Sausage Trail! My favourite is usually from Wall’s Butchers on the high street. It’s a highlight of the festival for the whole family.

What’s your top tip for seasonal produce in September? 

Damsons – nothing beats a Shropshire prune! Lovely stewed with a little honey, swirled through a fool or served with meringue.

What’s your store cupboard essential/the one ingredient you couldn’t live without?

A good jar of British honey! And sausages.

What’s your current favourite recipe?

It’s an old fashioned recipe, Lemon Surprise, it’s mostly eggs, lemons and butter, with a little sugar, milk and flour. When the mixture is baked you end up with a really light mousse on top and a saucy lemon curd in the bottom of the dish, delicious.
