Eat Cambridge fringe: The recipes of Suzy Oakes

The next fringe event I attended was presented by Anne Prince at Cambridge Kitchens in Mill Road.
Suzy Oakes was a passionate home cook, collecting recipes from all over the world and equally passionate about her neighbourhood. Setting up the Mill Road Winter Fair was just one of her accomplishments.
Her recipes have now been collected in a book. A selection of dishes from the dishes were cooked and presented by David Underwood. These were accompanied by a wine tasting by Matt of Cambridge Wine Merchants.

Due to the limited space, we were divided into two groups, one tasted the wine first, the other the food and then we swapped. Probably not ideal but it worked.
