2015-08-23, Gavin's beetroot dauphinoisApley Farm Shop is all about being local – local food for local people from local producers, providing local employment, boosting the local economy, preserving the local countryside & providing a local food & leisure destination.

So when we celebrated the birthday of Gavin’s mother’s (Corinna, Lady Hamilton of Dalzell) last night, Gavin gave us a very local Apley meal: The Aberdeen Angus beef fillet was sourced from the herd of Apley tenant farmer Simon Pennington, at Oldington Farm less than 1 mile from Apley Farm Shop. Gavin invented a new gratin dauphinois recipe, which was totally delicious: He mixed Apley Walled Garden beetroot with Maris Piper potatoes from Andrew Dalton, another Apley tenant farmer at Norton Farm, less than 1/2 mile from Apley Farm Shop. The runner beans came from Apley Walled Garden & we enjoyed Apley cheese afterwards (made by Mr Moyden).
