Yummy - real food

We've just had a delivery from Pembrokeshire Produce Direct. This is a local consortium which sources fresh local produce and delivers it to your door. We've never used them before, but got the tip from someone last week. Anna put in a small experimental order and it arrived today. The food looks fantastic:
  • Huge baking potatoes
  • Cabbage and cauliflower with a bit of soil still in between the leaves
  • Carrots and parsnips, oddly shaped and with mud attached
  • Celeriac, broccoli, beetroot, all as nature intended
All delivered to the door in a weatherproof box, at the time they promised by two older guys who seemed to enjoy what they were doing and didn't mind passing the time of day.

It's like looking at the grocery shopping from 30 years ago - real food, not the clean, trimmed, identically-bland, shrink-wrapped stuff that the supermarket sells. We already get all our meat from a good local butcher, and I think we will order from these people again, every week. Good food, local suppliers supported, and food miles as low as you can get.

Tonight - cauliflower cheese, with fresh local cauliflower, local cheese, and topped with slices of hard-boiled egg, from the girl in the vets who keeps free-range chickens.

Can't wait.
