#Eatsussex August has finally arrived! We’ve got a whole month of eating ENTIRELY Sussex sourced foods – and we couldn’t be more excited.
However, while we regularly whip up meals from food grown and produced in Sussex, we’ve still relied on a loaf of bread, a packet of oats etc. here and there from supermarkets (I know, I know!) August will be an adventure as we get creative with our Sussex ingredients and sourcing. We’ll keep you updated on the joys, struggles and discoveries we make along the way.
But, first thing’s first – and that’s breakfast!
Tuesday morning breakfast:
1 cup of strong Edgecumbs coffee
Fresh local sourdough from the bakery (but we’ll start making our own with Sussex flour – stay tuned for our recipe)
South Downs Dairy butter (and this is a wonderful rich colour from the healthy diet the cows eat!)
Raw Brighton and Hove Blackman Bee Farm set honey
Tibbs Fruit Farm strawberries (my fave)
This was truly a simple meal to revel in the beauty of the flavours from small-scale, high quality, local producers. Raw honey, sweet strawberries, rich local butter and crunchy, toasted fresh sourdough bread. Oh, perfection… Move over supermarket produce – we’ve got a tastier and more ethical alternative…
Don’t forget to use the hashtag #eatsussex in your creations this month! We can’t wait to see what you whip up, and we’ll regram the eats we love the most.
