Tasters, demos and more for Easter Saturday
Celebrate Easter at The Gog, which will be hosting a foodie showcase on Saturday 31 March with plenty to buy and try. It’s a great excuse to visit this beloved local farm shop, deli and café – which recently picked up the uber prestigious Great Taste Award for best farm shop – and try your way around products from the most renowned names in the foodie world.
You’ll have the chance to meet suppliers and sample tasty wares, all of which are stocked at The Gog. Taste your way around Gog favourites like Scotch eggs and sausage rolls, plus Monty’s cheese scones, and check out the demos from the award-winning butchery team to get some inspiration for your next meal at home.
Suppliers showing their delicious wares include Neal’s Yard Dairy, which has been sourcing, maturing and selling the finest cheeses from around the UK and Ireland since the early 80s. Also presenting some truly fabulous fromage will be Mons, who import traditionally made cheeses from France and Switzerland, ripened in the cellars at St-Haon-le-Châtel.
If you need something to pop all that cheese on, swing by the Ben and Ella’s bread stall, which will be serving up freshly-baked loaves from the company’s Bishop’s Stortford bakery; we hear the walnut bread is unmissable! There will be chutneys from Hibiscus Lily too, not to mention chocolate from the much-lauded Pump Street Bakery in Orford on the Suffolk coast, which turns out the most divine handcrafted treats made using top-quality single origin cocoa beans.
Also well worth a look and a taste is Norfolk Gin, who’ll be bringing their artisanal gin – made in Norwich – to the showcase for the first time. There’s plenty for the kids to enjoy too, with colouring competitions, Shetland ponies to meet and a free Easter egg each.
