 A Note
from the editor
I know favouritism is a bad thing, but I think this just might be my favourite issue of the year. A we surf on a crest of beautiful blooming flora - those clouds of candy floss pink blossoms can’t fail to make even the most pessimistic of sorts smile - and head into the warmer promise of summer, with that heady scent of freshly cut lawns and the reawakening of our favourite dormant perennials.
The May/June issue is filled with interesting people, lovely home and garden ideas and of course lots of great food - this is a fabulous time for produce and I’m sure chefs across the land are gearing their menus up to include some seasonal favourites. We caught up with the charming and self-deprecating chef Galton Blackiston of Michelin starred Morston Hall in Norfolk. He’s a regular fixture on Saturday morning TV and we discussed his career so far, along with his obsession with buying cookery books - a man after my own heart!
Galton has been kind enough to give us some fish dishes to try at home and we’ve also thrown in some recipes this issue that will help you when the mid-week inspiration well runs dry, and you want to get something tasty on the table in a hurry!
On the home front, we are looking first at the wise investments you can make in you home - the kind that add both value and make you fall in love with it again. Then our focus turns decidedly to the garden, with advice on hard landscaping and some garden trends, tips on choosing a garden room and advice on buying a hot tub and BBQ.
All this, plus the usual dose of travel, family fun in the events guide and lots of local business to discover. We hope you enjoy and we will see you in July - in the meantime, enjoy those Bank Holidays and let’s keep everything crossed for some sunshine!
