Well, that was a soggy week! And the great debate now rages across Sussex … to put the heating on or not?
What this wet weather calls for is some really great Sussex produce and it doesn’t get much better than Sussex truffles (the fungi variety). So, this week, I caught up with Melissa Waddingham who is a Sussex truffle and mushroom hunter and co-host of the UK’s only Truffle Festival (which is next month at Plumpton!). I also discovered a couple of new Sussex cocktails … like the Banoffee Pie cocktail made with toffee vodka.
As this week also saw the opening of a new section of the Sussex part of the King Charles III English Coastal Path (and as Newhaven is also our town of the month) I also revisited the Seaford to Peacehaven section of the coastal path. That should blow the cobwebs away.
Finally, as it’s Halloween, what about 17 Sussex ruins for a good stomp around and for those spooky Instagram photos?
And don’t forget to grab your tickets to Bubbles and Botanicals for some outstanding local wine and craft spirits: Bubbles and Botanicals Fair
That’s it for now. Have a great weekend.
Ps. Last week, I completely forgot to share the latest stage of my epic South Downs Way walk. So here is day 5 which was very grim!
