Good Honest Local Food and SAS Adventures with Freeman Leisure

On Tuesday 25th January, Alastair Sawday visited the Mill Race to talk about his latest title "Go Slow England & Wales" and the Slow Food Movement while guests enjoyed a marvellous three course meal.

Following the publication of Eat Slow Britain which featured the Mill Race as one of the 43 best places to eat locally produced, honest food, Alastair Sawday visited the Mill Race to talk to guests about the Slow Food Movement and importance of eating local produce. A tasty three course meal was cooked by the Mill Race chefs which included Pressed Pork Terrine with Homemade Breads and Piccalilli, Slow Braised Beef Ribs in a Red Wine Jus with Curly Kale and Ginger Parkin with Rowlestone Farm Ice Cream. The evening was sponsored by local butcher, H J Edwards who kindly supplied the meat.

The event was organised in conjunction with Rossiter Books who hope to organise other similar events later this year.

Three days later, at Bishopswood House, Andy McNabb made an appearance to talk about his latest novel, Zero Hour. The event was a sell-out, being attended by over 100 people including a group of students from Exeter! Hayley Coombs, Marketing Manager for the Freeman Group said, "We were delighted that Rossiter Books managed to secure this event and decided to hold it at Bishopswood House, this was the first such event Andy McNabb has done and were are really pleased we could be part of it. We are looking forward to holding many more book events at our venues in conjunction with Rossiter Books this year."
