2. The wonderful Tim Keates who road a single gear, butchers bike from Lands End to John O’ Groats during the summer. His vision is “to help his fellow-Britons rediscover the traditional quality, diversity and provenance of food and drink produced across our island. He wants to bring together many time-honoured food values and examine their place in modern food production. Looking at how those values can be incorporated in an ever-changing diverse Britain”. His epic trip involved 57 links with local companies You can read his about his journey on his blog. As well as sharing his infectious enthusiasm for the colourful vegetables grown in his allotment, he also shared some of his Sourdough Starter which I used to make Sourdough Toast to go with the Apple Marmalade above.
