Through my fellow local producers Luddenden Valley Wines I was recently introduced to Jo Fletcher Cross the Editor of Yorkshire’s County Weddings Magazine – Your Yorkshire Wedding. Jo was looking for local food and drink producers who showcased the best Yorkshire could offer for those brides and groom’s who were interested in food miles and provenance. The May/June 2014 magazine is now on the bookshelves and Medici Macarons has been lucky enough to be included.
Local food is important to me. For me ‘local food’ is very much about using ingredients that are on my doorstep. What makes my macarons taste that little bit extra special is that I use local and seasonal ingredients to make a macaron filling – this might be from foraging in the hedgerows for blackberries or on the moorland for bilberries. But I also use fruit from my own garden and I am also a voracious taker of friend’s surplus fruit too. I also have a fantastic local free range egg producer in The Rainbow Egg Company
The magazine is now available in the newsagents. Here is a sneek peek.
