Contemplating the upsides of eating local

Probably not unlike many women (and indeed many men), I am prone to occasional moments of weakness in which – try as I might – I invariably give in to chocolate cravings.

Well, as a localite foodie (unless you are very naughty and include chocolate/cocoa as one of your five ‘can’t-live-without’ non-local items!), chocolate is off limits.

Determinedly, I have been foraging for local sweets, and discovered – among other things at Burwash Manor (see previous post) – some very fruity local jam (made in Histon). Delicious alternative on a slice of lightly-toasted local sourdough bread!

OK, so it’s not chocolate. But it’s a whole lot better for you.
