Autumn 2007 saw the launch of a new lifestyle magazine for West Sussex, highlighting the benefits of eating local food and promoting West Sussex food producers and retailers.
‘Taste West Sussex’ is filled with interesting features on local food and drink, a business directory, and delicious recipes. Being the eco-conscious gal I am, I requested the online version of the first edition and was thrilled by all that I read. I found the articles interesting, informative and entertaining; the recipes set my taste buds on high alert and as for the directory… it’s been printed and now lives on my fridge door!
Although this magazine is focused on West Sussex, it’s great reading where ever you are based, so take a look at the Autumn 07 and Spring 08 TWS editions in PDF format. You can also subscribe for the future editions, on line here. I subscribed early and was lucky enough to receive two great books with the latest edition; ‘Seasoned West Sussex’ a collection of seasonal recipes using local food and ‘Recipes from the archives’ a selection of old-fashioned recipes from the West Sussex Record Office. I can’t wait to try some local recipes, so keep your eyes peeled for future local food posts.
Is there anything similar in your area to promote local food and producers? I’d love to hear about it! :)
