I'm fortunate to live part of the week in the New Forest, with its outstanding produce, gorgeous landscape and free roaming pigs, ponies and cattle. There's an increasingly significant food and wine scene developing here, with a notable number of fine hotels and food festivals.
Ben's Canteen sits on St John's Hill, one of the busiest restaurant streets running between Wandsworth and Clapham. Alongside The Ship down the road, the Canteen is a regular favourite of SW cooks, bloggers and foodies - I'd been hearing lots of good things about it. I'm not generally a burger and scotch egg kind of girl, not a surprise to my regular readers I'm sure, but when we heard that Ben was hosting a Mark Lloyd pop-up featuring game, our interest was definitely piqued.
