With ‘Buy Local’ as the theme, BiB is planning its second Food & Drink Festival which is returning in 2014 from 24 to 26 October following the success of this year’s gastro-extravaganza.
There’s nothing insular about the group. Most of its members are based in the Budleigh area - the chorizo casserole for example comes courtesy of Rosehill Rooms and Cookery, based on Budleigh’s West Hill. But the mulled cider is from the Ashcombe Estate near Dawlish, where Budleigh resident Bill Roper is helping to revive the centuries-old tradition of cider-making. While on the subject of food there’s a delicious-looking recipe on the Ashcombe Cider web page at http://www.ashcombecider.co.uk/moules.html
