Who is this Hedgecomber?
I’m Janie, I’m a food writer, photographer and recipe creator.
I share my home with Jonny and a little black rescue cat called Sassy. We breed Muscovy ducks for eggs and meat and have laying hens in the garden. And depending on the time of year, we’ll either have pigs in the field or bacon in the freezer!
Welcome to my little family farm on the south Cornish coast, and most importantly, welcome to my kitchen.
This food blog is where I share my huge and ever growing collection of real-food recipes. I’m hoping that you’ll be inspired by these recipes and use them to make the most of your garden produce, veg box goodies and seasonal foragings.
Happily Cornwall is at the centre of a burgeoning foodie scene and I am surrounded by passionate growers, farmers, fishermen and artisan producers. Top quality food needs very little time or effort spending on it in the kitchen. And in my world the more simple and rustic a meal is, the better.
How does this food blog work?
I’ve been writing this blog since 2008 and there are a lot of recipes here! To find your way round, use the tabs at the top of each page to browse through various recipe collections and ingredient listings. Also, it is worth noting that if you’re looking for something specific, you can type it into the search box on the right hand side of each page.
All the recipes here are free for you to use. If you think a recipe is awesome and you want to let me know, you can leave me a comment at the end of the recipe. Equally if you have a problem with a recipe, please let me know so I can fix it for others.
Please feel free to share any of my recipes on social media. Above and below each recipe are a handful of social media icons. Just hit whichever one you prefer and you’ll instantly be able to share that recipe with your friends.
Furthermore, you can also keep up to date with all my foodie adventures on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Pinterest. And don’t forget you can also get email updates each time I publish a new recipe by subscribing on the right hand side of any page.
Please do come and say hi and tell me all about your real-food adventures too. I can’t wait to meet you!
