As seen in Homemade with Love

This month you can find Little Wren Pottery in ‘Homemade with Love’ issue 6, it’s a beautiful magazine stuffed full of Christmas projects with a Scandinavian twist.

York Food Festival

I’ve become a real convert to the ‘food festival’ movement, sure it’s busy and you’ve got to jostle for a position in the queue but its quite fun to taste flavours you wouldn’t normally find. Last weekend I had a trip out to the York Food Festival, taking in some of the stands it was interesting to see that savoury was much better represented than sweet.
