I’ve been challenged to eat so locally that I don’t even have to leave the campsite. My trusty (should that be rusty?) campervan, Custard, and I have picked up the gauntlet and travelled the country in search of some great Certificated Sites (CSs) that produce their own food.
We’ve found fabulous fruit, vegetables, bison steaks, cheese, wine and much, much more, proving that Club members can enjoy delicious fare harvested just yards from their pitch. Here I’ll be sharing my foodie CS discoveries, along with the recipes for meals I’ve cooked. Enjoy...
