HOW times have changed. Once the world’s culinary kicking boy, a dyspeptic punchline to the same old joke, British food is thriving (‘Around Britain in 50 foods’, page 36). Exports continue to soar, our national produce synonymous with quality, craft and the very highest of welfare standards. Not so much coals to Newcastle as cheese to France, chocolates to Belgium, even tea to China. For decades, British cooking was a term of abuse, a culinary cuss, a byword for the drab, dreary and institutionally dull. Not any more. Our chefs and restaurants astonish with their skill, ingenuity and passion, as gastronomes the world over come to bow their heads at the altars of St John, The Fat Duck, Rules, Ynyshir and Core. And with good reason. We may be a nation…

beware bumps in rural roads

A BAN on selling new petrol, diesel or hybrid cars will be in place by 2035, the Government has announced. The policy was unveiled as part of the launch event of COP26, the annual UN gathering to discuss climate change, which will be held in Glasgow in November. The plan will be subject to a consultation and comes after climate experts said that the previous target of 2040 was too late if the UK intends to stick to its goal to be emitting almost zero carbon by 2050. Hybrid vehicles are also included under the new proposals, meaning that people will only be allowed to buy fully electric or hydrogen cars and vans. The policy drew criticism from a variety of groups, with the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT)…

dandy dandelions

THEY might be seen as annoying weeds that can spoil a decent lawn, but dandelions are a haven for bees. Gardeners are being asked to refrain from mowing them over by the new president of the British Ecological Society (BES), as they are a valuable food source for early pollinators. Jane Memmott, who took over at the BES at the beginning of this year, said gardens have become too neat, which isn’t helping our insects —a vital cog in our countryside. ‘People are a lot tidier than they used to be. This whole business of keeping your lawn neatly clipped and pulling the weeds out is part of some British obsession with tidiness,’ says Prof Memmott. ‘If you look back at old pictures, people weren’t as tidy. I think bohemian untidiness is…

Getting around the countryside A £20m trial for on-demand buses in rural and suburban areas was announced this week, allowing passengers to order rides through an app. Some £30m of further funding will be spent to improve or restore bus services that have been cut. The Government hopes all buses will be electric by 2025 Theatre-going seals A wild grey seal has been recorded ‘clapping’ on camera, creating ‘shotgun-like’ sounds.
