The new British comedy Tamara Drewe - starring Bond girl Gemma Arterton - is set in the West Country, and has inspired us to celebrate the seasonal taste of the English countryside.
To get you in the mood for the movie, out on Friday September 10, we've got a special autumn salad to whet your appetite and which would be perfect for a lovely, long, lazy saturday afternoon lunch. Why not whip up a batch of scones, pour yourself a glass of Cornwall's own Camel Valley sparkling wine and really enjoy yourself?
