We can’t have a Ledbury Big Breakfast this year … let’s have a Ledbury Virtual Breakfast
This year celebrate Ledbury’s annual celebration of Breakfast – the Ledbury Big Breakfast – by treating yourself to a special breakfast at home on the weekend 29th, 30th and 31st January.
This is when we normally celebrate the Ledbury Big Breakfast, but we can’t do this in the traditional way this year due to Covid, as our cafes, pubs and hotels are closed.
Instead we ask you to create your own special breakfast at home buying produce locally and supporting local retailers and producers as part of your shopping.
We are blessed with shops stocking the ingredients to make all kinds of breakfast goodies from the famous Full English, Eggs Hollandaise, Smoked Salmon and Poached Eggs, Porridge, Pancakes, Hams and Charcuterie, to Cheese dishes.
Local butchers can serve you with bacon, sausages, ham, eggs and that favourite for some – black pudding. For fruit and vegetables try our two greengrocers.
Local independent shops stock lots of locally produced ingredients such as smoked fish, eggs, yogurt and dairy products, preserves and honey, cereals for porridge and bread.
Ledbury Country Market at the Burgage Hall on Friday 29th January morning will have specials including charcuterie and dim sum Chinese goodies.
We will be putting up some breakfast recipes on the Ledbury Food Group website to stimulate your creative juices. You can find lots more recipes at http://www.shakeupyourwakeup.com/breakfast-recipes.
For those who are isolating or reluctant to go shopping, some shops are able to take orders for delivery or collection – see the website’s Local Food Information Page for details. Allow time for deliveries.
Please observe Government requirements and guidelines re Covid 19 when shopping and at home. You can always share the experience with others by social media or Zoom.
Send photos of your Big Home Breakfast to us at firstname.lastname@example.org – we will put the best on our website.
Lastly consider helping others less fortunate by contributing the cost of a breakfast to charity e.g. to Ledbury Food Bank at http://www.ledburyfoodbank.org/ or NHS Charities Together at https://www.nhscharitiestogether.co.uk/.
