Exmoor- Europe`s first Dark Sky Reserve!

Exmoor National Park has just received international recognition as an outstandingly natural and unspoilt place by becoming designated
Europe`s first Dark Sky Reserve. One of only two Dark Sky Reserves in the world!
 
 
 
 
People living and working in and around the National Park will receive information and advice about how to preserve the lack of light polution in this area. Few of the small villages and hamlets within Exmoor National Park can boast street lights anyway, you carry a torch out there!

Due to popular demand during the Exmoor Food Festival, Ian will be running a second Game On! Cookery Demonstration on Thursday October 20th 7-9pm.
Further details can be found on www.streamcombecookery.co.uk
 
Tickets are on sale at £25 per person, and places are limited to 14 people.
 
Please call or email to book yours!
 
 

Game On!

Last week`s 'Game On! Cookery Demo' was a great success.
The event was sold out within a week, and we have since added a second date.
 
In addition to sampling mouth-watering dishes demonstrated by Ian, guests also enjoyed tasting four different wines that complimented the smoked trout, partridge and venison dishes.

Elderflower Fizz

Earlier in the year Ian had a go at making some Elderflower 'Champagne'.  The initial smell was wonderful, and once fermenting happily, the concoction was carefully poured into lemonade bottles.  The resulting barrel shaped, hissing time bombs were then carefully placed outside in the garden, barricaded behind an old mill stone for the safety of all those passing!
 
With some trepidation, 4 weeks later, we had a taste.....
Amazing!
 
It was the most delicious fizz I have ever had.
