Welcome to my blog, I am Sophie Douglas, having lived in London since 2006, I have now made the move to the country, East Sussex to be precise. I am an artist, photographer and art teacher blogging about the world as I experience it and sharing what I find interesting. A selection of my work work is available from The Parkshot Gallery in Richmond, www.saatchionline.com/Sophiemayersart, or directly from me. Please contact me with any queries. Thanks for your time.
Today I have lunch at Losely House in the Wisteria Tea rooms. followed by a wonder around the beautiful gardens. We did not booked onto a tour of the house this trip, but if you are going it is a great way to learn about the history of the house.
Having actually got up early to take the dogs to the seaside I got home to deal with a giant marrow I was given.
With it I made:
ginger and narrow jam,
ginger, orange and current cakes
froze the spare marrow for later
The extra flour I tried out some rough pastry. Who knew it was so easy! Get flour, frozen butter, salt, pepper and a little water. Grate frozen butter, mix it together, stick it in the fridge for half an hour, make tarts (Filled with homemade marrow chutney and goats cheese) and eat!
