Great Food editor writes main feature in Countryfile Magazine

Published September 5, 2012

Great Food editor Matt Wright has been commissioned to write the main feature in the latest issue of Countryfile Magazine, the sister publication of the well-known BBC1 TV programme.

The seven-page article, which can be found on p16 of the September issue (out now), comprises a food tour of the East Midlands, starting in Melton Mowbray, heading out to the Lincolnshire coast, and then returning to Rutland.

Countyfile editor Fergus Collins writes of Matt’s article: “The feature is a revelation – a glimpse of England of old. It has piqued my appetite for adventure in an area I don’t know well.”

Places mentioned in the article include Melton Cattle Market, Long Clawson, the mustard growing area of south Lincolnshire, Stamford and Doddington Hall.

Producers and pubs covered include Hambleton Bakery, Goatwood Dairy, The King’s Arms at Wing, The Olive Branch, Parish Brewery, Whissendine Windmill and Lincolnshire Poacher.
