“Eat for Devon”: menu ideas

Hello, it might be helpful to share menu or recipe ideas. I’ve had Devon oat bread (with Teignmouth honey for breakfast and Sharpham’s cheese for lunch), with evening meals using Devon meat from Redfern’s and local veg from Tibbs. Are vegetarians managing to source meals?

By the way, look what I spotted in the Co-op:

West Country milk

All their milk is labelled “produce of the West Country”.

“Eat for Devon”: inviting people to join us

I work at Torbay Hospital, and have invited some colleagues to join me in this experiment. Please are you able to encourage friends and relatives, colleagues, or people in clubs/societies etc. to “eat for Devon”? It would be great to let us know of groups who have been invited to join us, so please ‘leave a comment’.

“Eat for Devon”: preparation for our local food challenge

Our challenge starts on Saturday 21st August, so I’m starting to think about shopping and menus for the coming week.

Some staple items may be tricky? Has anyone found a source of Devon-produced milk, bread, cereals? Please click on ‘leave a comment’ to share ideas.

I’ve started asking some local shops if they will help explain where the food they sell is sourced. Interested ones based in Teignmouth so far include:
Redfern’s Butchers, Lloyd Maunder Butchers, Ruffles Delicatessen, Nutters, Poppadums, the Great Catch fish shop, Tibbs Greengrocers, the Home Made Bakery, the Owl and the Pussycat, Cubby Hole newsagents and the Co-op.
Please talk to your local suppliers and if they are willing to help, add them by clicking on ‘leave a comment’.
