Carl Shillingford is busy cooking in the newly fitted kitchen and their ‘foraged and small producer’ shop will be opening in the New Year. Great news for lovers of local food and the perfect accompaniment to Dedham Vale Wine and Carter’s Cider. Look no further than Seasonal Suffolk’s Christmas Morning Hamper, complete with Dedham Vale Sparkling White Wine!
In the meantime, we are trying to adapt to having a talented chef on site and our new role as ‘guinea pigs’! Those who have visited the Vineyard recently may have noticed the addition of a peculiar shed with a chimney. Not a deluxe kennel for Ruby this winter (although the delicious smells are driving her crazy!), but Seasonal Suffolk’s smokehouse, seen here with its first load of cheese and fish.
