Weekend in Rochester... Dickens Fever, Christmas Cheer, Baking and Cherry wine!

Monday, 5 December 2011

Hi everyone!! This weekend I went to Rochester to catch up with my friend Rachel who has an amazing blog called House of Pinheiro. We had such a looovely weekend!  The streets of Rochester was buzzing with Christmas spirit as people dressed up in Victorian costumes to celebrate the annual winter Dickens Festival (brochure)...streets were filled with the scent of mulled wine and cider, stalls selling lovely handmade gifts, Christmas indulgences, bratwursts from the German market (I had wild boar and apple...delish!!), laughter coming the carousels topped off a sprinkle of fake snow...all this with the beautiful Rochester Castle and Catherdral in the background...

 We also made sugar cookies (See House of Pinheiro)

And these really delicious Ham and Mushroom Muffins (recipe to come)

Black Cherry wine! 

To finish off the day Dan kindly spent hours in the kitchen making us this absolutely yummy meal! One one the best meals I've ever had!! :-)

Cherry Lane xoxo
