Thanks to everyone who braved the elements to visit us today.
Due to the weather we will be closing early today (between 2-30pm to 3pm)
This is to allow my hardworking staff to get home safely before everything freezes over.
Come down for great coffee and cakes, delicious lunches and fantastic foodie gifts.
Get on your hats and gloves and walk down you can be sure of a warm welcome.
We have some great gifts for those last minute buys.
See you soon

Personally i love the run up to Christmas and especially all the food that involves.
If you are planning to serve some Patchwork Pate for your Christmas lunch or New Year's party, our last order date is Mon 13th December.
Thank you for all of your hamper orders so far, it's not too late to get one for a tasty present.
If you have finished your shopping already then you can always relax in the warmth of our cafe, with a hot winter berries cordial or a 'real' hot chocolate, and maybe a homemade cake (or two)
Hope to see you soon

Our first batches arrive tomorrow. Suzi bakes lots of cupcake flavours, so we will be starting with just a few ...be sure to let us know which your favourite is.
Dandelion & Burdock cake has been so popular that we have decided to keep it on the menu for now...it's made with Mr Fitzpatrick's delicious cordial (www.mrfitzpatricks.com), be sure to try a piece if you haven't already.

Thyme has a varied selection of products which celebrate seasonal and local produce.
If you grow your own, and you are lucky enough to have more fruit or veg than you can use, why not preserve it? We now stock preserving jars, labels, wax discs and straining bags.
Look out for special recipes celebrating British products throughout the fortnight.

We still have a few bags in stock, get them while you can.......

It's the start of the summer holidays, for my son, anyway. So i thought i'd tell you about our current offer, in case you need picnic nibbles, or camping treats.
We are offering any 3 jars of Olives et Al olives for a tenner. They have a long shelf life and are great for days out, just add a few cocktail sticks.
Many people think children won't like olives, but kids love strong tastes (think salt and vinegar crisps, marmite etc). My children both adore olives and will clear a bowl before anyone else gets a look in.
Add some reganas - spanish rosemary crackers to dip in the oil too. Delicious.

Tasty Alternative – Food Chain Magazine - “Taste Test”
The Food Chain Magazine did a “taste test” on a few of our products recently ... The taster of this product wasn’t told the product’s free-from pedigree – and didn’t notice!“The lemon shortbread was rich and buttery, and I loved the little two-biscuit individual pack – great portion control and easy to pack in a lunch box” she said.The Stilton option appealed to the male testers on the panel. “These are tangy and really crunchy – they have a robust flavour and I could happily eat several” was the verdict.Inspired by a life-long love of baking and a profound interest in ‘free-from’ foods, Kent & Fraser’s new biscuits mean that food allergy sufferers or anyone looking for a delicious, healthy sweet or savoury snack can now indulge their cravings. The lemon butter shortbread recently won a gold star for its taste, and yet contains no egg, soya, wheat or gluten. For a savoury hit, the Stilton and walnut biscuits are irresistible with a delicious glass of red wine or port, and they offer the perfect way to end a dinner party. And true to the cause these biscuits contain no eggs, soya, wheat or gluten.Article by "Food Chain Magazine" www.foodchain-magazine.com

Add some olive oil to a frying pan and throw in the peppers for a few mins, stirring frequently.
Add the sliced chorizo and fry, stirring to ensure cooked on both sides. It should end up slightly crispy on the edges.
That's it! Serve with good bread or carbohydrate of your choice, and a glass of Rioja.

Filming will take place around Horwich and inside Thyme starting with Bill Turnbull's breakfast programme and continuing throughout the day on the news channel.
We are very excited that the BBC will be using us as their location for the day and we hope that some of you will come along to join us.
