FOOD & DRINK Local Food Favourites


by Holly Jones, Manna from Devon Cooking School 2


012 seems to be the year of countless anniversaries and we are celebrating being in Devon for 10 years. One of the things that brought us down here originally was the thought of the fantastic local produce we could use to cook. Ten years down the line, we are still working with and treasuring this local abundance. What has also been a real pleasure is seeing the companies we work with grow and develop their businesses. Devon is now a definite foodie destination and really something to celebrate.


At Manna from Devon we really try and use local produce that has its own story to tell our cookery school students. Here are some of our and our students’ favourites -


Fountain Violet Eggs


Our closest supplier, Edward Jones is literally just up the hill and provides the fabulous organic free-range eggs we use. The majority of the eggs head off to Waitrose but you can buy them in Kingswear Village Stores or at the Ship, Kingswear on a Friday night.


Emma and Edward have also ventured out into the food festival world and produce fantastic omelettes for Dartmouth Food Festival. Edward’s chickens have one of the best views from the top of the hill – out to Start Bay via the castles and up the river to Dartmoor. I’m sure it adds to the great flavour of their eggs.


RealDrink


Paul and Rebecca produce delicious apple juice, cider and elderflower cordial up the river in Stoke Gabriel. Their latest development is a 5 year old cider brandy which is beautifully packaged in a slimline clear glass bottle and made for them by award- winning cider brandy maker Julian Temperley. Used at Dartmouth Food Festival by world champion mixologist Nick Strangeway, the 5 year old cider brandy from Realdrink has proved to be an essential winter warmer through the cold months as well as a great present for friends.
