All our dishes are prepared this way not just the specials, we offer a combination of delicious flavours AND nutritious ingredients. There are a lot more places offering home delivery than there were at the beginning of “Lockdown“, fish and chips, pizza, kebabs etc. and while they all have there place as occasional treats they don’t really provide a sustainable diet.

Pea Green Coronavirus Response No 2

Friar’s Walk in Spring Sunshine

What a strange week it has been. The town so quiet, the streets deserted, unless you were in one of the enormous, serpentine queues for food or medicine. All of us standing the regulation six feet apart, all anxious, all wondering if the shop would have run out of stock before we reach its doors.

The lane to the café has been sunk into a dreamy sleep. With bees loud in the hedges and blue and white for-get-me-nots speckling the banks. No sound of children playing, no traffic at either end. The one woman I pass backing into the wall with her dog to let me pass. We exchange greetings and commiserations from a safe distance, relieved to be polite and friendly in what can appear a friendless time.

We have used the cool and silent streets of early evening to begin posting our new Supper Solutions Menus through doors, which is beginning to have results. The only living beings in Mill Street were a pair of mallards who politely got out of the way and waddled off towards the Art Gallery. Obviously cultured ducks.

We are all learning to adapt to a new way of living, reaching out through different means for the important, necessary things we need. Hopefully our new delivery slots will go a little way to helping customers plan their weekly needs.

Coronavirus Pea Green’s 1st Blog Response

The word medieval keeps coming to mind. The hush of the streets, the quietness of town. The few people abroad hurry purposefully to their pre set destination. Greetings are muted in the main, a grimace of a smile, an averted gaze. We are all at sea with the new etiquette required in these pestilence times.

The café is silent, cleaned, light, airy and empty of life. The new photo canvases, the updated magazines remain unseen. The planned for events, all cancelled. No more Good Greif Café, Speed Awareness Course, Ladies who do Yoga, Veterans walking club. The Dance Studio is hollow with the remembered noise of a Saturday morning session. For a while Phil the Gardner came, pruned, weeded, left.

While we are under the Coronavirus curfew, we will be focussing on serving our customers through our take away service “Supper Solutions“, a service for all those vulnerable category people who would benefit from this service. There are the over worked, stressed priority workers who at the moment just don’t have time to shop and cook, in addition to all those with special health needs who are sensibly staying home, “Supper Solutions” would really help.

All these developments coming pit pat one after the other, has as you may imagine kept us on out toes. We will be refining and expanding the services we offer to our local community with updates on menus and other take-out options via Facebook, twitter and more frequent blogs.

We will stay in contactless communication with you for as long as the crisis continues.

“Like Me Muvver Used To Make”

Cauliflower Cheese

I was in my local butcher’s ( Walls in High Street)  the other day and was buying some “thick Ludlow sausages” for Sunday breakfast, a real treat. The talk in the shop was all about the up and coming Food Festival which is unbelievably celebrating it’s 25th year. They were discussing the probability of getting a hog roast going opposite the shop, which had been very effective for them in the past. Not only in street sales, but with people then going into the shop to buy their meat. One of the reasons the Festival is so successful is that it show cases the town and it’s wonderful local produce which I can buy any day of the week, but visitors wouldn’t necessarily know about. We are always being asked where we buy our sausages. Let’s hope the visitors do use the shops and not just the castle stalls

Humans have been making sausages for thousands of years, the outcome of efficient butchery. The word itself comes from the Middle English “sausige” which in turn is from the Latin for salt, salsisium. It is obviously a way of preserving the lesser cuts of meat which are ground, blended with “filler” usually bread, and herbs and spices. The Romans are credited with bringing sausages to Britain like so much else they were meant to have introduced and since then various counties have their own way of flavouring them. Lincolnshire uses fresh sage, Cheshire caraway and coriander. Ludlow sausage makers make a variety of different flavourings, from the spicy Red Dragon in honour of the Welsh, to mushrooms and brie. They even produce Gluten free and Slimmer’s World sausages. Though me, I’d rather have a flavoursome sausage or go without. It seems as bizarre as “vegetarian sausages”. Why if you don’t want to eat meat would you want something that looks like meat?

It was in the reign of Charles I that sausages were first made into links. They used to stuff them up chimneys to be mildly cured! They are the ultimate comfort food, a plate of “bangers and mash” with onion gravy and peas. Yum. They got the name “banger” from the second World War because their high water content made them explode in the pan. They were made a sin in the early catholic church because of their association with pagan Roman festivals. So like any prohibition, sausage eating went underground until the ban was lifted. Their combination of hard exterior and soft interior plus the luscious aftertaste make sausages after all as irresistible as any forbidden fruit.

I love Toad in the Hole, that flavoursome combination of Yorkshire Pudding, crisp fried onion and sausages, as do the rest of the family. In the café we serve sausages with cauliflower cheese as a special, and always pride of place on a freshly cooked breakfast, two of our most popular dishes. Try out a “thick Ludlow” sausage by popping into Pea Green.
