Roast beef at The Earl of March

Tom Flint: Some top notch country-pub cuisine

At the recent Sussex Food Awards, The Earl of March was named Sussex Eating Experience of the year, quite an accolade when you think about it. Following their victory I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to try it for myself and booked a table for a Sunday afternoon. Now we all know that the Sunday roast is sacred in these lands, and the best is always made at home. Every now and then, however, it is nice to get out into the countryside and get someone else to provide the food.

Tom Flint: Family food breathing new life into pub

In 1972 the Ugandan dictator Idi Amin declared that the country’s Asian population had 90 days to leave. At that time this amounted to approximately 60,000 citizens who had built lives and businesses in the country. Around 30,000 of these people were British passport holders and were forced to leave everything behind and return to the country. Many arrived penniless, having been robbed of their possessions and assets before leaving the country, and their new home was not the most welcoming in many cases.

Wine, wine lovely wine, what a wonderful creation it is. 
Human beings have been making and enjoying wine for centuries and it must go down as one of our greatest achievements. 
 Give me wine over the wheel any day. Enjoyment of wine is something can bring people from all backgrounds together. However, there are some people who take their enjoyment of wine to a whole new level, a level that can be a little bit offensive to some.
