Parliamentary Reception at House of Commons


It’s not often a Yorkshire lass gets a special invite like this one. I was on that train like a shot and down to London for a Parliamentary reception  in the House of Commons Members’ dining room. The Pimms was very welcome! The event was hosted by the Food and Drink Federation and speakers included the CEO of Nestle and the Secretary of State for Defra. The photo is of yours truly with fellow Defra Food Stars Lynne Mallinson from Country Puddings and Rupert Parsons from Womersley Vinegars.

I took the opportunity for lunch in Whole Foods Market Kensington. What a place..if ever you’re in the locality you absolutely must visit. It’s a foodies paradise and I felt very proud to see our chorizo on sale there.
