August saw us heading west to Wales and the beautiful Gower peninsula to do some filming for the soon to be released Taste the Wild DVD. The photographs taken by our partners in the project Red90 and PJN Photography have just arrived and we love them!!
Gower August 2012
At the start of out brief trip we spent an amazing, though wet morning with Illtud Llyr Dunsford of Charcutier Ltd and his wonderful Mangalitsa pigs and I was very excited to be given some of his rare breed pork to take away and marry with our foraged salt marsh vegetables.
After a days foraging in the area we headed for the beach and set up in the dunes to cook up a few dishes to showcase our stunning welsh produce both farmed and foraged.
Warm salad of Mangalitsa bacon, Fat hen, Sea Buckthorn and Haloumi cheese.
Slow cooked pork cheek with pickled Samphire, Seablite and Sea Purslane.
Pan fried tenderloin with Mugwort and potato cakes.
