Food, glorious food Etsy List curated by H is for Home

It’s British Food Fortnight so that’s what we’re celebrating on this week’s Etsy List. British food is no longer the butt of jokes. Thanks to the plethora of cookery programmes on television such as Great British Bake Off, Great British Menu and Masterchef we’ve become a nation of foodies.

Cooking & baking is no longer a mystery; the information, equipment and ingredients are easy to get hold of and we’re all giving it a go!

It’s not just about cooking, though; it’s a celebration of growing your own and picking you own. It’s about shopping seasonally and locally – supporting local farmers and producers.

Food, glorious food!

'British heritage' Etsy List curated by H is for Home

10-13 September sees the annual Heritage Open Days here in England. It’s the opportunity to visit thousands of buildings all across the country for free.

Many of the buildings are usually closed to the public so it’s a great chance to see behind the scenes. Buildings taking part range from cathedrals to mosques, tin mines to swimming baths, pubs to temperance houses, masonic lodges to Salvation Army halls.

We’ve selected 8 of the locations that will be taking part this year. Go check out their website, there’s bound to be a venue near you that should make for a fab day out!
