Foody’s Corner



Country Pies
Jane Boococks’ Country Pies are a big hit at the market. I bought a steak pie at the October market and I have to say it is the best I have ever tasted, and reluctantly confess that includes my own efforts. 
Jane will always have order forms available, but with there only being two markets before Christmas and to help with your orders for pies, gammon and bacon I am letting you have her details below. Hopefully no one will be disapointed by missing out on their Christmas essentials.

Cooked lobster

We can’t all manage to be on Masterchef, but, thanks to Hebden’s of Whitby it is possible to enjoy a fantastic cooked lobster.  Jim Hebden tells me that he regularly sells out of lobster at the Oakwood farmers’ market.  Foody has confirmed with Jim that, if you contact him 48hrs in advance of the market and place your order, he will bring a lobster specially for you.         

Prices will, of course, vary according to size and availability. 

You can contact Jim by telephoning him on 01947 600582         

PS –  Jim can also ‘dress’  the lobster for you.  Just let him know when ordering that you would like a ‘dressed’ lobster.         


Individual White Chocolate Black Forrest Gateaux

 Black Forest Gateaux         

Entertaining? Something to celebrate? Or just deserve a treat? Why not try some White Chocolate Black Forest Gateaux from Mark Shipway at the Cutting Cake Pattisserie.           

The individual little black forest gateaux have layers of black cherry conserve, Italian buttercream and chocolate sponge soaked in kirsch syrup, wrapped in thick, luxury white chocolate and topped with fresh, sensational and seasonal berries.           

They always sell out really quickly, so to avoid disapointment you can order these (they are £2.50 each) via Mark’s Web Site at using the contact page, and then pick them up at the next market.          

Mark and his wife Nang Kham Mai were recently featured The Yorkshire Evening Post and you can read the article by clicking here.
