Snape Maltings

Spending a few days in Snape/Aldeburgh 2 hours by train from London. Very peaceful here our cottage overlooks Snape Maltings concert hall - had a hilarious Saturday morning watching the middle classes drive in their 4x4's to the farmers market here!! - nearly every child was called Toby! some nice products there, Besides that nice walking and a great vegetarian lunch and dinner in Orford here and also in Aldeburgh here

Visited Benjamin Britten's home the 'Red House' and listened to the 4 Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes which sounded perfect in this small town which was the inspiration for much of his work (as well as chasing Peter Pears through the undergrowth in the middle of the night)

Chips and mushy peas with a gherkin from the Aldeburgh Fish & Chip Shop were great! Also bought some really hot smoked Chipotle Chilli Cheddar from here which was HOT! but tasty

Had a barbeque with paneer that I marinated in tandoori sauce a few hours before and made these great Kofta's from Waitrose's excellent site here
