Surrey Produce

With a view to introducing the world to the delights of Surrey, together with Iceland Traveller (www.icelandtraveller.co.uk) we are hosting a group of visitors from Iceland later this year and as part of the preparation for the tour we have both been out to Iceland to introduce ourselves. (http://www.englandsferdir.is/).

Julia is heading out next week and week and plans to take out some local produce with her, although is restricted a little by weight.

Not to be put off by such triflings, I popped down to a local Surrey High Street today to gather some goodies. Some Surrey Gold, yes there’s gold in them hills, lovingly prepared by Messrs Denbies at their Surrey vineyard (http://www.denbies.co.uk/).

Naturally, we needed some TEA, although this was TEA, is much to my taste and is brewed by the (https://www.hogsback.co.uk/product/t-e-a/), although in fairness, The Surrey Hills Brewery’s Shere Drop would have been an equally good choice (http://www.surreyhills.co.uk/).

And for some cheese. Time constraints forced me to one of the finest of the High Street Supermarket chains. In a scene reminiscent of a classic Monty Python sketch I asked the not unreasonable question, “Do you have any local cheese?”

After scouring the choices and naming various southern European cheeses, the young chap cheerfully proclaimed… “We’ve got some brie.” I remind you that we are in Surrey. Suffice to say, search continues.
