Cookery Demonstrations Saturday 18 June
In the marquee at 11am
Lori Reich of Shute Fruit and Produce, based in Bishopsteignton, near Teignmouth is going to demonstrate how to make a great cream tea in 30 minutes.
Lori has been acclaimed by no less than the Women’s Institute as making “the Best Strawberry Jam in Britain” and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, says Lori made “the best scones she ever tasted.” Find out her secrets as she makes a cream tea in 30 minutes, from scratch: scones, jam, and a proper pot of tea (complete with tea cosy). As it takes over 24-hours to make real clotted cream Lori can only talk about its history and traditions in the South West. Samples handed round afterwards!
Lori wowed the judges from Taste of the West to be named Champion Savoury Preserves 2015 with her Bread and Butter Pickle. Much to Trading Standards initial consternation there is no bread nor butter in the pickle. Here is what the judges said:
“A very good, ‘different’ product, very well executed. Bright,
clear and fresh with a brilliant balance between vinegar and sugar. Just as
a good no-nonsense pickle should be. Only one issue, the jar isn’t big
Lori regularly attends the Crediton Farmers’ Market with her award-winning preserves.
