from Dartmouth looking over to Kingswear last Sunday
In the run up to Christmas, Coombe
Gallery, Foss Street, Dartmouth will be holding an extraordinary
exhibition, combining the Westcountry’s top chefs including
Michael Caines MBE, Mitch Tonks and Hugh Fearnely-Whittingstall
together with the region’s most inspirational artists who will
be transforming their wonderful recipes into unique pieces of
art. Several of the leading Westcountry chefs have very kindly
agreed to donate their own recipes to artists for inspiration.
Each work of art will incorporate the chef’s recipe enabling the
viewer to cook directly from this unique piece of Art.
The chefs who have kindly agreed to have their recipes
transformed into works of art are:
Michael Caines M.B.E., Joyce Molyneux, John Burton
Race, Sally Vincent, Mitch Tonks & Hugh Fearnley-
The artists whose enviable task it is to pour over these recipes
for artistic inspiration are:
Paul Riley, Simon Drew, Rowan Lange, Marc
Farrell, Kate Marshall, Ben Jones, Malcolm Cheape,
Fran Gynn & James Stewart.
The recipes range from scrambled duck's egg with eel to king
prawn stir fry and on to chocolate fondant. Each work will
provide inspiration year round to budding chefs and a beautiful
and original work of art incorporating some of the finest chefs
and artists working together for the first time in the
The exhibition opens on Saturday 29th November 2008 at 10.00am
and will run until 5th January 2009. Check out Mark's

We have so far produced about 130
news bulletins. Many people stop us in the street
and thank us. People miss it if it doesn't arrive by
Thursday tea time, but when we asked for donations, we only got
one this year!
We have asked local businesses to
share their mailing lists, and we have asked to work with
people. With the exception of the Dart Marina no one has
helped. We love doing the news, but it costs us time and
hard cash and we can't continue for ever without some funding.
We won't be producing news on Thursday 11 December, and unless
we get some serious help it's unlikely we will produce more than
a small handful in 2009. If you can provide help, please

Snowden: I was just looking online to see if I could
find any mention of a Spode commemorative plate that was
issued for the 150th Dartmouth Royal
Regatta. I could not find anything and so thought you
may be interested in noting on your website that I have one
for sale if anyone was interested. I live in Bournemouth now
and it could be posted.
It has been in its presentation case since I bought it in
1994. It's very attractive and one of a limited edition of
250. One from the same edition was presented to the Duke of
York in 1994.
