    Flint Vineyard has created a huge stir in the world of wine since they launched in 2016. Run by Hannah and Ben Witchell, this husband and wife team have truly taken the wine scene by storm, winning international awards, becoming regulars in both wine and weekend press, and also stocked by the prestigious wine merchants, Berry Bros & Rudd in London. Flint Vineyard has literally risen from the ground to being a world-class vineyard, and they are a true celebration of the positivity that is the food and drink scene here in Norfolk.

  • The Norfolk Foodie – Richard Hughes

    June 26, 2020trevor44

    I do not think that it is an exaggeration to say that Richard Hughes is a true Norfolk institution. From his days at Number 24 in Wymondham to the famed Lavender House in Brundall Richard has, for the past 10 years, been the man behind the resurgence of The Assembly House. One of our county’s most-loved chefs, Richard gives a searingly honest interview, albeit it one that barely scratches the surface, as we talk about his obsession with cooking, his dedication to his craft, and living through the moment when being a chef became sexy. “I love what I do,”…

    The Norfolk foodie scene is not just about chefs and producers – it is also about those people who work hard to showcase the best of what the county can do, and the people in my third interview for The Norfolk Foodie series personify this. Anna and Hugo Stevenson have been at the heart of the food and drink scene in the region for 15 years, and it was a pleasure to talk to them not just about their love for all things foodie in Norfolk, but also their clear passion for those who live here. “The Norfolk food and drink…

    There is something special about the foodie people of Norfolk. I guess that everyone can say that about their own area – but Norfolk is truly unique. There is a pull here like no other, those that leave almost invariably return. And along with the amazing life that those of us who live here get to enjoy, with almost 100 miles of stunning coast to explore, lush green fields and open spaces, and the vibrant city of Norwich, there is the region’s own celebrated food and drink. From Norfolk saffron to the amazing medlar fruit of Eastgate Larder, which was…
