The National Tea Day seems to be the best opportunity to recall an interview I made with a local tea specialist Liam Richmond, the owner of Rudyard’s Tea House in Beeston.
The tea shop offers currently 37 types of teas from black tea, green tea to herbal infusions. All ingredients are ethically sourced and tea lovers in Beeston can enjoy the flavour and smell of unique blends.
According to Liam, drinking tea brings also some health benefits and improves well being in general.

Butternut Love (http://meandtheuk.develion.com)
British cuisine is often considered heavy and boring. Eggs&bacon, beans&sausages or fish&chips widely served in pubs and restaurants and beloved by British people are one of the things that tourists and foreigners living in the UK mainly dislike about the country. However it is only part of the cuisine on the Isles.
While passing through markets and green groceries I noticed a lot of vegetables that I haven’t seen before, e.g. swede, butternut squash, sweet potatos, curly kale and celery. The common availability of this kind of food made me curious about British recipes and servings and here are some results of my research.
The first protagonist is celery. Its crispy and juicy steams are great fresh in salads and side dishes, but they are also a very nice ingredient for soups and bakes.
