  1. First up... the Yummy Yank...

    Lisa Gair aka The Yummy Yank hails from the USA and has been living in the UK since
    1997.  The YummyYank bakes classics such as rich American style brownies using over
    a kilo of dark Belgian chocolate in every tray of twenty. Our brownies, bars or
    traybakes come in over 14 different varieties. In addition to brownies, we make a
    selection of layer cakes and our signature cake/cheesecake combinations. Most of our
    layer cake flavours can also be made into loaf cakes, a perfect size for when you
    want that little treat. You can find us on or @theyummyyank
    on Twitter and Instagram and The Yummy Yank on Facebook.





  2. Our next Farmers Food and Craft Market in Sunday the 10 September 2017 - we have our monthly Farmers Food and Craft Market at Market Place and inside the Civic Hall in Ramsbottom.   It is also the annual Black Pudding Championship!!! This is literally a world famous event, the championship takes place on Bridge Street - it isn't to be missed!  There is also the weekly Car Boot at the Railway Car Park and many of the shops, bars and cafes are open in Town.

    If you haven't been to the black pudding championships before what should you expect?   Well in this annual competition the story goes that it is in honour of ancient grudge between Yorkshire and Lancashire which is re-enacted by hurling Black Puddings at a pile of Yorkshire Puddings on a 20-foot high plinth.  You can come along and take part, Competitors have three turns in an attempt to knock down as many Yorkshire Puddings as possible (they are arranged in a pile of a dozen) and must throw underarm from a purpose built stand.The competition dates back to the 1980s but the Yorkshire-Lancashire rivalry is pretty much a legend, again the story goes that  during the Wars of the Roses the two sides exchanged fire with foodstuffs when their ammunition ran out!  Expect a lively, fun atmosphere and hundreds of puddings!  This has often appeared on TV, local news, the Hairy Bikers visited one year and This Morning.  It is something a little different and definitely worth a visit.
