Bakewell Farmers Market tales
She's been producing her range of bite sized snacks for 5 years. Very kindly she gave me one of her Staffordshire Pepper Bites to take away and try and very delicious it was too. This modern version of the rustic snack was a red hot pepper with cream cheese centre encased in pork sausage meat and finished with wholemeal bread coating.
Now you may think that the Scotch Egg was a bit of a peasants snack enjoyed by farm workers and the like. Not so. It actually has almost regal lineage. The scotch egg was invented in 1738 by Fortnum and Mason as a nibble for coach travellers who stopped off at the Piccadilly food emporium.
I'm hoping that Debbie will be coming along to one of our 9 food fairs taking place at Baslow nr Chatsworth this year.
Don't forget our Spring Food Fair on the 2nd and 3rd of April. Have a look at our exhibitors here.
