The restaurant at the Snow centre draws some of its ingredients from a vegetable patch just by the building, the chef is assisted by local old ladies who have been teaching her local country receipts. I know it sounds a bit to good to be true but it really does seem to work, the food is amazing and the enthusiasm of the old ladies and the chef unthinkable in the UK. I showed some mushroom porn I had on my computer (pictures of mushrooms from the lake district) and they were near ecstatic, my best trout photos nearly blew the place apart.
Among the more interesting projects to me are within the agricultural programme. Berry Spoon project introduced a number of hitherto ungrown berries/soft fruits, raspberries, blue berries, mulberries etc, a low tec but interesting building to sell from and a support structure to maintain the canes. During our visit there were people working on the plants, its low production, maybe a half acre but demonstrates what’s possible and local farmers seem interested (they are the ones maintaining it).
