It was the start of autumn 2013 and, having completed the Year in Beer, I was in search of a new challenge for the food and drink side of this blog. And I decided to stay local, focussing on the great food and drink available here in Devon.
I asked for ideas and you suggested an A-Z of Devon food and drink. Not one to shy away from a challenge, I embraced the suggestion and embarked on a bid to eat and drink my way through the alphabet. You can read the rules that I set for the challenge at the foot of this page.
Thank you to everyone who suggested Devon food or drink producers, events or eateries that I should try through the comments below.
Eating the alphabet
Here are the food and drink producers I tried during the challenge. If you click on their logo it will take you to a blog post that features their wares. All of the logos have been taken from the company websites.
I made up a few rules for the challenge.
- The challenge should last (roughly) a year, and should finish in autumn 2014
- The A-Z is based on the producer’s name, not the name of the individual products
- There can be more than one entry under any letter
- Rule suggestion from Mrs Running Buffet: Seasonal produce should be tried in season wherever possible
