Local Food Heroes is now a Local Food Hero!

Detail from Leicester Mercury More Magazine CoverI've just found out that the Local Food Heroes blog was named as a 'Local Food Hero' in last Saturday's Leicester Mercury 'More' Magazine.

This blog featured in the 'Food Writers and Bloggers' section alongside The Mercury's own food reporter Joan Stephens; Tim Burke, the former restaurant critic who runs 'Eyes on The Prize', a blog about places to eat and drink; Hazel Paterson of the 'It's not F****** Rocket Science' blog, with it's superb photography and recipes; and Matt Wright, editor of 'Great Food', a magazine celebrating everything 'foodie' in the Midlands area.

I'm honoured to be featured in such good company.

The Mustard bash

The First Great British Mustard Bash takes place at Scalford Hall, near Melton Mowbray on March 12th. Scalford Hall is the former home of Colonel Colman, founder of Colman's Mustard, so is a most appropriate venue.

Entry is only a fiver (£5) per car so super value. For more information see: www.mustardbash.co.uk
