The beauty of this time of year is the abundance of Food and Drink Festivals that spring up around harvest time.  All have a tempting array of stalls with food from near and far.  My personal favourites are the stalls that specialise in locally grown food.  In my own area of Leicestershire, that has to be the many, many different types of farmhouse cheeses including red Leicesters and Stiltons with many different flavours incorporated into the soft creamy cheese.

Independent Shopping - A Personal Experience by Rowan Williams This New Year I decided to commit to a resolution that I hadn’t tried before.

However this one was completely different. Driven by an ethical, political and emotional reasoning, I promised that I was going to by-pass the big supermarkets and try to shop from my local independent businesses.
