Aspall Draught Cyder


Now I like a drink!

I used to be a bitter drinker (Adnams, Greene King etc.). But now I can’t.

I have tried all the normal draught ciders such as Strongbow, Scrumpy Jack etc. Crap!

But help is at hand! I was in the Red Lion at Kirtling near Newmarket and their draught cider is Aspall.

Yes! Aspall! It’s wonderful!

Le Petit Blanc


Celia was in Manchester for a week on a case so on the Wednesday I went up to see her and have a meal. We went to Le Petit Blanc, which is a restaurant run by Raymond Blanc or Le Manoir de Quat Saisons fame.

A complete gluten free menu was on offer.

Rice Noodles Instead of Pasta


Celia has started making excellent pasta with an upmarket rice noodles in a wok!

She prepares the noodles and then puts them in for the last few minutes of the sauce.

Not quite the same as pasta, but a very good gluten free alternative.
