We recently had the pleasure of cooking for Kirsty and her guests at her own #privatedinnerparty as part of an @eley_fitness raffle prize. All proceeds from the raffle went to raising money for @westonparkcancercharity – how fantastic is that?
Thanks for having us Kirsty! Clear plates and happy faces are always good to see.

Archaeologists have discovered huge stone jars, known as “jars of the dead” in south east Indonesia that seem to indicate an ancient burial practice was more widespread than first assumed. Megalithic sites in Laos have yielded discoveries of multiple giant stone jars, that were in some way, related to disposal of the dead. The sites date back over 1000 years, The jars, measuring several feet across, have been known to have existed since the 19th century when some were first discovered on the so called “plain of jars” in south east Asia. It’s currently impossible to know what culture made the stone jars- weighing several tonnes, and little is known about them beyond the fact that they were thought to serve as temporary repository’s for the dead before burial. It’s hoped that perhaps more information can be gleaned when DNA research is carried out on nearby burials, and comparative analysis made with similar jars found in Assam, India, and Sulawesi, indonesia. Until then, these monster jars remain somewhat of a conundrum.
Unlike any other worldwide, our jewellery is not made of glass or toxic plastic resin.

Believed to have originated in the small town of Bakewell in Derbyshire, the Cherry Bakewell is a variation of the famous Bakewell Tart 🍒
Consisting of a shortcrust pastry filled with layers upon layers of jam and frangipane, Cherry Bakewells combine sweet cherries with a rich almond fondant topping, making for an unforgettably lovely sweet treat 👌
Have you ever tried a Cherry Bakewell?

As part of the #yourderbyshireopenarts2019 campaign, I'll be sharing a little more about me over the coming days. I'm excited to be exhibiting for the first time as part of @derbyshireopenarts this coming weekend! I'm a young and emerging artist, recently graduated from the University of Edinburgh where I did a 4 year Fine Art Painting degree. I work mainly in oils, creating paintings that reflect my emotional connection to the natural landscape. I'm particularly interested in capturing my memories of the mood and atmosphere of a specific place and time. Looking forward to meeting people who will be viewing my work for the first time this weekend!
