Mousse, for me, is one of the ultimate desserts as it light, airy, smooth, and ever so creamy but I have never had a mousse which has been presented in such a way that I just did not want to destroy it and that is exactly what happened when I visited No.79 cafe in London.

Downland Produce enjoy free range meat live a healthier life

I love to cook and eat but I am always conscious about when it comes to cooking with anything as it can make a big difference to when it comes to taste, that is why it is important to buy good quality products. Apart from that it is also very important to me to know that the produce has little impact on the environment hence why I usually buy organic, free range or fair trade produce.

Meat in particular though is very important when it comes to buying any as I am an animal lover I would love to believe that the animal had a good life beforehand, such as roaming fields, not locked up in a cage. So when I discovered about Downland Produce who only sell free range meat it made me very happy to hear as not all butchers sell free range meat.

I was gifted a meat box on a courtesy basis from Downland Produce to show me how good their free range meat is.
