The idea of this blog is to share ideas for using hand-made pots to serve good food.
Eating with friends and family is one of life’s greatest pleasures. I hope to show how the warmth and character of hand made ceramics can really enhance the pleasure of cooking, serving and eating food.
This blog will include pots from other potters as well as my own and recipes for the food which I enjoy, hoping that you will like it too.

I am excited to be able to announce that my new Pots and Food Calendar came out last week, it was much admired at the Wardlow Mires Pots and Food event at the weekend.
This year I have worked in collaboration with Ben Bulger, head chef at The Magdalen Chapter hotel in Exeter, to produce the calendar. He devised the recipes and cooked them in my kitchen where we plated them on my pots for Suzy Bennett to photograph. The photo-shoot was great fun and an exhausting day’s work. I was left with lots of delicious food - and of course piles of washing up!
I like Ben’s food very much and his seasonal approach to cooking, influenced by time working at Riverford Field Kitchen, is ideal for the calendar. As before, the recipes for the dishes are included on the calendar. I hope you will enjoy trying the recipes - which of course taste better on hand-made pots.
The calendar, priced at £10, and you can also buy it from The Studio in Moretonhampstead, or call me and I can post direct.
