I also really like the Real Boar Company, and their range of products. 57 Rumour has it you’re working on a new cheese and dairy book… Yes, it’s the next one in the River Cottage Handbook series, published by Bloomsbury. I’m in the early stages of it right now, but it will be a practical reference book for people interested in cheese production, and it will cover milk as a major topic – because, without it, cheese doesn’t really exist! There will be a ‘how to’ section and lots of recipes, but the bit that I am most looking forward to is going to around 40 cheese producers in the UK to discuss individual cheeses – it will highlight the vast quality of cheese making we have in this country.

Clearly we had to get together to talk ears, heads, bacon and more… First up, Steven, what’s your favourite charcuterie product of the moment? I love guanciale, which is a cured pig’s cheek traditionally used in a classic carbonara. I particularly like it because the head of a pig is considered a lowly cut of meat in the UK, and often just gets turned into pet food. com you can even just roast it like a joint of pork. I deliberately call my guanciale ‘face bacon’, so that everyone is familiar with its origin, and I use it as the base of many sauces.

Com Hunters around here must have a very keen eye, as my pie isn’t short on pigeon... I t seems apt that the day we set out to visit The Hollow Bottom in Guiting Power is the day before Aintree 2016 kicks off. After all, this pub with rooms above is popular with the racing crowd, and – although stripped back during the recent refurb – equine memorabilia is still very apparent. We’re late to leave Crumbs HQ in Bath, so there’s no horsing around on the way for us, but – despite boxes transporting precious ponies to and from the plentiful training grounds that circle Guiting Power slowing us down – we make good ground.
