How many of our blog entries, tweets (Foodsmokingjo) and comments on our FaceBook page are about the lovely people we meet  at Smoky Jo’s.  Last month we had a lovely couple  who came for a weekend course – from not far away – just the other side of Kendal.  When they left on the Sunday afternoon Cerys gave us a beautiful carved wooden cat  which we love.  We were so touched – and delighted.So imagine our surprise when our postlady Julie brought us a parcel this morning saying it was from Alistair and Cerys.  With much excitement we opened the parcel wondering what ever could be inside – it was about 30cms square, flat and soft ……?

Well – the packaging revealed two amazing aprons – one in the name of Smoky Jo and the other in the name of Smoky Georgina.  However much more exciting than that is the picture on the front.  Cerys has so cleverly copied and stitched/embroidered/appliqued pictures of the characters from our new book  “Smoking Food at Home with Smoky Jo”.  They are utterly beautiful – much too beautiful to wear as aprons – maybe we will just keep them for high days and holidays and maybe photo shoots.  They are certainly never  for wearing near  messy food or smoky fires.












Now just have a look at this – Are they not amazing?  THANK YOU Cerys!
