Recipe of the Week: Frying Pan Clafoutis

Frying Pan Clafoutis

Clafoutis is a baked French dessert


It is a speciality of the Limousin region. The name is said to come from the Occitan dialect word claufir, meaning to cover or fill.

Fruit, traditionally cherries, is arranged in a buttered dish and covered with a thick batter and cooked until only just set.

Our recipe – from A Zest for Life – uses autumnal fruit instead of cherries and adds a cheeky dash of Calvados. There are more delicious autumnal recipes in this month’s recipe collection.

Enjoy Seasonal Produce

Seared Salmon with Quick-Pickled Veg

During the past few months, our local farm shop (which also happens to be our nearest) has been invaluable.

I think that shopping locally has become more important to us all, and to be able to enjoy locally grown produce is something that many of us would also like to embrace.

To enjoy British-grown produce, eating seasonally is essential, and in August we’re particularly lucky to have a wealth of ingredients to choose from.

There are fragrant tomatoes, crisp radishes and plump raspberries to name but a few. Take a look at our Seasonal Food Calendar for more info.


And this scrumptious salmon recipe from the 2021 Dairy Diary uses lots of seasonal ingredients. Just omit the avocado if you want to only buy British as I don’t think we can grow them in our climate.

This is just one of many amazing recipes in the 2021 diary, which is available to buy online now, or from your milkman soon.

They offer real flavour and a crunchy texture, and are completely delicious served with salad on a bun.

Make the perfect Pimm’s

Make the perfect Pimm's

There’s something delightfully civilised about serving a jug of Pimm’s


It always makes me feel summery and reminds me of village fetes and weddings, and sunshine.

There may be fewer summer events this year, but we can still enjoy a jug of this fruity cocktail.
