Something Yummy

the beautiful
Isle of Wight

I've been coming to the Island since I was born (and the year before that too), firstly with my parents and then in adult life with my own family.

My wife also fell in love with the Island instantly, as I have done for 40 + years and my children also loved it so much that we decided this was the place for us to live as a family, where the children could grow up and where we could enjoy a different way of life. It’s the best decision any of us have ever made.

destination for foodies

As a “foodie” destination, the Island offers so many amazing opportunities. Stunning fresh seafood direct from the seas that surround us, including incredible bembridge lobster and crab. An array of beautiful grown seasonal products, from the world famous tomatoes and garlic farm, to asparagus, sweetcorn, godshill cherries and island wild mushrooms. It’s also an amazing place to forage.
Cows that graze on the green fields above the needles producing world class beef, incredible award winning cheeses from 3 different producers and 4 breweries and a distillery marketing incredible beers and gin. I’ve missed many more out – too many to list, but there is a section for my favourite ingredients and local suppliers.
