Food and Produce

Steve and I moved to Market Cross Guest House in Belford in 2012 and was a new venture for both of us. I have always had a interest in food but after retraining to be a chef in my forties I began working at Swinton Park Cookery School in the Yorkshire Dales for a number of years. It was there that I really developed a passion for where our food came from and the use of seasonal produce being lucky enough to have access to a real kitchen garden and excellent local suppliers. While working at Swinton I discovered the delights of fine dining, the amazing talent and passion that goes into creating menus and dishes. Within my role at the cookery school I met some fantastic food producers and I came to understand what amazing produce was on the door step in North Yorkshire.

When we moved to Northumberland I doubted I would find the same level of produce here on our door step. How wrong was I!

Here in my blog I will share with you some the producers we use here at Market Cross as well as the best local restaurants and maybe a few of my favourite recipes.

I hope you enjoy!
