A Cuppa Pukka!!

Sebastian Pole using his tasting pots to brew some tea

Spending a morning with Sebastian, founder of Pukka, at his home herb garden in Somerset is a good way to start the day.  His love of plants and overwhelming positive feeling of wellbeing is infectious. The weather was changeable so we did have to dodge some rain and head into the kitchen for shelter and to watch the master at work as he sourced his herb collection and concocted a spring morning tea recipe.

Sebastian spent time in the Himalayas where he was inspired by the healing properties of the plants around him. Back in England, he studied Ayurvedic, Chinese and Western herbal medicine which he practices at Neal's Yard in Bath. So if you're thinking of brewing, check out the flavours of herbal teas and supplements from Pukka, at most supermarkets near you. Thanks Georgia for helping out with the shoot!

Lamb at Wilmington Farm

It was so cute today to find two lambs at Wilmington Farm, one called Ollie and the other Bear Grylls.  Debbie Keeling and her husband produce a top quality Rapeseed Oil at their Farm in Wilmington, and I was invited to an open day to find out more.  They were also showing around some chefs and restauranteurs, including these guys (below) who are in the process of opening a new restaurant in Bradford-on-avon called "Bunch of Grapes". They already have a venue in Bordeaux, France. Can't wait to try it out!
