A Taste of Good Health

At our excellent February meeting, we welcomed Helen Swift from award-winning health food store and cafe Archie Brown’s.

IMG_0358 Helen brought with her a wide range of the ingredients she uses in Archie Brown’s own recipes and which are on sale in the shop there – grains, nuts, seeds, pulses and spices aplenty and even Cornish-grown quinoa!. All of these we tasted with enthusiasm! Helen also allowed us to play with her newest “toy”: a flaking mill which can be used to help make porridge and muesli ingredients straight from the grain with none of the goodness stripped out. We were also able to sample a new range of natural skincare products manufactured right here in Penzance.

We can now look forward to planning an evening visit to Archie Brown’s itself for coffee and cake followed by what Helen described as “a good poke about” in the shop with staff on hand to answer questions and to give advice.
