In case you didn’t know, it is Christmas!
It is that time of year again, and the time in the run up to Christmas is precious. You can download my guide to preparing for Christmas here. It will hopefully give you some ideas and help you maximise the time you spend shopping, preparing and so on. Click on the down arrow icon next to the printer icon.
I want to wish you very Happy Christmas and enjoy the time with family and friends!
My name is Paul Bellchambers. Sharing a passion for food. I moved to the Isle of Wight in 2020 during the middle of Covid. In 2021, I researched the local producers here on the island. Finding so many here on the island was amazing. During that summer, I worked for some great clients from the island, crews here for Cowes Week, and visitors here to enjoy the island and celebrate!
It means so much to me that the island has a full range of producers from meat, dairy, fish, vegetables, cheese, dairy, bread, wine, beer, spirits and so on! Add to this the range of cafes, bars, restaurants, hotels and venues. The island offers a wide range of hospitality to all our visitors during the year and the people who live on the island!
A Passion for Food
I enjoy sharing a passion for food; I love teaching, demonstrating cookery, developing recipes and courses. Simple recipes that can you can cook easily and quickly are important. Using fresh ingredients and reducing the use of processed and ultra processed foods. If you can do all of this and cook, then it becomes fun, improves your confidence in the kitchen and eat more healthily! What could be better?
In the time that I researched the Isle of Wight’s range of food and drink producers, I have learnt about the creative and dedicated people they are. With unique talents and a drive to do something different and well. There is always someone and something new every week. I feel as if I am becoming a food and drink researcher and podcaster.
So much so that the idea of sharing this fantastic collection of people and produce with the rest of the world became a reality with the Food and Music IOW podcast. You will find my podcast episodes here along with recipes and menus that I create for my clients!
