Dear Best Loved Member
Tuesday, 28th April 2009

One of my favourite things about travelling around Britain and Ireland is savouring the flavours of fresh regional produce. I spent part of last week in Ludlow, the picturesque Shropshire market town deservedly renowned for the quality of its cuisine, as well as for being the capital of British Slow Food movement.

Happily, my stay coincided with Asparagus Week, and I got to sample plenty of the most succulent shoots imaginable. The fact that a town of 10,000 supports so many traditional butchers, bakers, cheesemongers and greengrocers, in addition to quite a few famous restaurants, makes Ludlow very special indeed.

I stayed at Fishmore Hall, a beautifully restored boutique country house hotel overlooking the town with gorgeous views over the surrounding Shropshire countryside. Fishmore Hall is celebrating its second anniversary, and I'm happy to report that the food here is as stunning as the views. I hope to return in the second week September for the Ludlow Food Festival.

Best wishes,
