The Fringe – 11am – Friday
Jane is a food writer, photographer, real food recipe creator and founder of The Hedgecombers.
Living the real-food dream on a Cornish smallholding, Jane shares her home with Jonny and a little black rescue cat called Sassy. They breed Muscovy ducks for eggs and meat and have laying hens in the garden. And depending on the time of year, they’ll either have pigs in the field or bacon in the freezer.
When they aren’t at home on the farm, Jane enjoys travels. She loves visiting all the beautiful places to see in the UK whilst living, sleeping and cooking in Myrtle, her VW campervan – including Porthleven Food Festival for the past four years.
Real food to me is about good quality ingredients, locally sought wherever possible and with consideration to the highest levels of animal welfare in farming and food production. Real food is about putting meals on the table which nurture and nourish ourselves and anyone we cook for. From simple, easy to make or bake meals and snacks, to exploring the rich, rustic world-food cuisine. Through both tried and tested and new and exciting recipes and cooking methods. The key to all of this is flavour!
Jane’s aim is to always bring you real food flavour whilst being mindful that convenience is still important to you in our everyday, busy lives. She’s recently turned her hand to foodie TV presenting with a six part series on Planet Eat called Hedgecombers Kitchen as well as becoming a bit of aYou Tube sensation!
