WALK, TALK AND FORK

Walk

Deben­ham Wad­dle (de­scribed as a pleas­ant walk through the Deben Val­ley) – for its name as well as its beauty

Eat

Hadley’s Dairy Ice Cream Par­lour in Laven­ham. Amaz­ing ice cream in a beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tion. El­iza Ac­ton (Suf­folk’s own Mrs Bee­ton) would thor­oughly ap­prove of their retro style dessert, El­der­flower & Lime Arc­tic Roll. What’s not to like!

Drink

So, I hear that many of us are swap­ping wine for gin and vodka. There is an ex­cit­ing abun­dance of craft gins around whose en­tic­ing brand­ing, bot­tle shapes and un­usual flavours are an al­lur­ing change to wine. Match that with fewer units and you can un­der­stand why the at­trac­tion of re­duced hang­overs and avoid­ing that aw­ful feel­ing of not know­ing what you ac­tu­ally said is caus­ing many to ditch the usual shared bot­tle of wine. Suf­folk is also de­vel­op­ing a name for some amaz­ing gins and vod­kas. On my trav­els I’ve come across Ad­nams Cop­per House (de­li­cious) and I’m also look­ing for­ward to try­ing Fish­ers Gin, in­trigu­ingly de­scribed as ‘an ex­pres­sion of the English coast’. I can also highly rec­om­mend The Pickle House’s Bloody Mary Mix made near Sudbury – it’s su­perb. My must-do recipe this month is an El­der­flower and Cu­cum­ber Gin & Tonic. Add el­der­flower cor­dial ice, cu­cum­ber and le­mon to your usual G&T. It also works well with vodka.
