The Isle of Man Farming Community are setting Howard and Christy a series of cooking challenges over the coming weeks. With recipes suggested by farming families around the Island, each week Howard will be making a main course and Christy will rustle up a pud - using, of course, the best Manx Produce they can find.
In the fourth week of our 'Farm Kitchen Challenges', they were both set challenges to make thoroughly British dishes. Howard was tasked by Michael Taggart and Jean Norris to make a rather epic Toad in the Hole. He used a selection of Andreas Meat Co sausages, Laxey Flour, veg from Bry Rad's Fresh Veg Shed and all set off with a dram of homemade Gorse Wine on the side. Delicious!
Here's Michael to tell us about their farm life and share the recipe: -

In the meantime, Christy was challenged to make a Sticky Toffee Pudding by Maria and Tim Johnston from Close Lake Farm in Andreas. She used Coole Girl Eggs, Isle of Man Creamery butter and cream and Laxey Flour (amongst other extremely decadent ingredients). YUM doesn't quite cover it! Here Maria tells us a bit about their life in Andreas and why she chose the recipe:
