Oooh, how I wish I could be in Bristol this weekend.  They are having a Cary Grant Festival – it looks amazing.  One of the organisers Charlotte Croft emailed to ask if I would send Cary’s Mushroom Canapés recipe which I duly did.  So if you hot foot it to the Cary Grant Cocktail Party on Saturday night they may be serving some…

If you fancy making these, the recipe is at the bottom of this post.  I made the ones above with some really interesting mushrooms from a jar that I found in Morrisons which I have never seen again.  Ghost mushrooms…



A weekend celebrating how Bristol born Archie Leach changed his name and his fortunes to become internationally famous film star Cary Grant, yet never forgot his Bristol roots. Includes talks, tours, cocktails, a film-making challenge and red carpet gala screenings. 

Here’s a link to their website…
