Whilst on foodie subjects (when are we ever not discussing food at Apley!?), our Cheese of the Week is Harlech cheddar with horseradish & parsley & Cake of the Week is Rhubarb Crumble Cake (photo just coming) from the BBC’s Good Food website. Great news for rhubarb crumble lovers, it is totally delicious & she is of course using Apley Walled Garden rhubarb ! Here’s (photo above) the rhubarb in the garden.

And here is what they say about the Harlech cheese: “Harlech takes its name from the famous Welsh warriors of the middle ages. It’s a creamy cheddar flavoured with fresh horseradish & presented in an attractive orange wax. Harlech has a unique character with a smooth texture that successfully blends the intense flavour of horseradish & the fresh parsley taste. It’s tangy & zesty with a nice edge of heat”.  Sounds fabulous !

Craig Whitehouse, our new (returned in fact !) in-house butcher is making a variety of handmade sausages: pork & apple, pork & sweet chilli, pork & tomato, pok & leek, plain pork (thick & thin), extra lean pork & even (whilst venison is available) venison sausages !
