Weekend Breakout - Dorset

Foodie haven, outdoor bliss, dramatic coastline, breathtaking countryside


Over the weekend we broke out of London and headed to the west country;  Dorset. It was the first beautiful weekend in spring. The sun shone, the bird song was wild and the daffodils were up. Over the two days we were there, all we could do was forget about the busy world we'd left behind and go totally carefree for the weekend.

Ice cream on the beach, huge walks through the countryside, sunsets on hill tops and hearty food (for breakfast, lunch and dinner). We headed to Hugh Fearnely Whittingstall's restaurant for a light lunch, picked up groceries in a farm shop and spent a lazy Sunday afternoon in an old country pub. We walked the sandy beaches, rode through rivers on horse back and hiked beautiful hills (got lost, had an argument, laughed it off and somehow got home).

Flushed, sun kissed and with full bellies, we headed back to London.

Gingerbread pudding

This pudding is an ultimate old school restoration project. It tastes old fashioned, it's not too rich, it's full of flavor and it's good stodge. Perfect for a weekend in Dorset.
