This recipe is bought to you courtesy of Sam Quinn, Co-Founder of Woodfired Canteen – a Cornwall-based experience dining company. Hosting memorable meals in special locations, the team serve up creative, colourful food cooked over wood fire. Plates loaded with local produce are delivered to the centre of communal tables, where guests - elbow-to-elbow and deep in conversation - pause to devour wholesome seasonal menus.
Woodfired Canteen is based at Wheal Kitty Workshops in St Agnes, an old mine-works and engine house perched on Cornish clifftops; they share the site with awesome adventure brand Finisterre, environmental charity Surfers Against Sewage and Walters surfboard shapers.
This recipe is perfect for an alfresco feast after a Cornish surfing session.
Fell Running, also known as hill running, is the sport of running and racing, off road, over upland country where the gradient climbed is a significant component of the difficulty.
You may start off cold, get hot whilst challenging vertical heights running up hill, and its likely to cool down up top... so what do you wear?! Rachel, a keen fell runner, has us covered!
Jacqui has spent most of her life on the road and cannot remember a time when she was not either packing or unpacking. Her mother Dorothy first introduced her to Europe when she was nine years old – living in a Kombi and visiting a myriad of different countries and cultures.
Over the last 3 years, Jacqui Kennedy and her trusty CT110 called Mo have been traveling over 55,000 kilometres. “Mo is a 110cc ex-Auspost bike, top speed 75km/h on a good day and he steers like a washing machine,“ says Jacqui, “He has been a faithful companion and like most men, as long as you keep the fluids topped up, he is happy.” Read more about Jacqui and Mo's adventures on the blog
