WHAT’S MAKING THE GOURMET NEWS IN BATH? NEW CAFÉ


All aboard The Boat Café


A new floating café has opened on the canal at Meadows Bridge between Bradford


and Avoncliff. Based in a specially converted canal narrowboat, The Boat Café provides seating for up to 20, and eight more on the bank. “People have been intrigued to sit inside the old narrowboat – especially as you normally only get glimpses into boats from the towpath,” said owner Alfie Windsor. “We had a very busy opening week and customers seem to like what’s on offer.”


The focus is on freshly made, simple snacks such as sandwiches with homemade chutneys, hot bacon butties and homemade cakes, and much on the menu is Fairtrade and sourced from the local area.


Open seven days a week from 9am-5pm, and later in the summer, the café also offers takeaways and complete picnics and can be hired for parties or as a unique venue for small business meetings. For more: www.theboatcafe.co.uk


VIVE LA RÉVOLUTION


Foodie guru Jamie Oliver was in Bath recently, spreading the word about Food Revolution Day – a worldwide event focusing on keeping cooking skills


alive – on 16 May. The TV chef was at Milsom Place with pupils from The The café interior


Paragon School and St Stephen’s Primary. “He showed concern for health and safety in the kitchen as well as healthy food,” said Paragon teacher Gareth Millar, “and was impressed to hear of the children picking blackberries, making jam and gathering wild garlic for sausages we cooked.” The children presented Jamie with a gift – a prototype of the new ‘Livewell’ plate that Year Five teacher Chris Guest has developed, which is used as a teaching aid providing clear nutritional guidance and which the children eat from at lunch times. “We gave the plate to Jamie and he seemed really impressed,” said Year Six student Jessie Parson.

AWARD Top award for Bath brew


Bath Ales has won the top accolade for its Golden Hare beer at SIBA’s annual Tuckers Malting Beer Festival.


250 different beers were on show at this year’s event, and Golden Hare fought off tough competition from The Liberation Brewery in Jersey and The Ramsbury Brewery in Wiltshire to claim the top prize. Head brewer Gerry Condell was delighted: “We’ve always known that Golden Hare is an exceptional ale,” he said. “This lightly coloured drink is brewed using floor-malted Maris Otter


barley and the aptly named Goldings hops. Its fresh and zesty flavour makes it the perfect choice for spring time.” The top-scoring seasonal brew is available on draught across the South West for a limited period each year, and can be bought nationwide at Waitrose and Sainsbury’s. Robin Couling, managing director at Bath Ales, added: “SIBA is the voice of the independent brewing industry so it’s fantastic to have one of our beers recognised in this way by our peers.” For more: www.bathales.com

The new marmalade was made for The Pig Hotel


AWARD HAT TRICK


Keynsham-based foraged- food producer Heavenly Hedgerows has received a gold star from the Taste of the West for a third year running. The star was awarded for their three-fruit marmalade, created for Bath’s Pig Hotel. A silver star was also awarded for a Seville orange marmalade. “I feel hugely proud of our kitchen-table business and its small-scale production of jams, jellies, liqueurs and now marmalades,” said owner Chris Westgate. “We were delighted to have been asked by The Pig Hotel to supply them with our preserves, and immediately set about taking a course in marmalade making!” For more: www.
