My New YearTracy Ibberson
Happy New Year to you all. My New Year finds me resolved to becoming more healthy and making the most of my new life style; enjoying developing more Rustic Escape properties for our guests and sharing with them my love of nature and the agricultural, culinary and social history of our unique locations. Here you can see me on New Years day starting my diet! I am resolved to take advantage of the lovely fresh produce we have in our Valencian ´huerta´or kitchen garden and I also visited the orange growing area to the south of the city to gather wild vegetables and fruit for supper. That day I only ate fresh wild vegetables and fruit; enjoying oranges and grapefruit straight from the tree for lunch and cooking up cardoons and fresh greens with wild garlic for supper. Delicious! It´s just as well I didn´t find grapes to make my own wine! It´s water for the next few months! I want to feel fit and healthy this spring ready for our first guests in the Casa de la Campana in Finestrat, Alicante, this April. Have a look at the escapes we have prepared for you and be one of our first guests. Then you will hopefully be welcomed by a skinnier me! Here´s hoping!
