Hi, I’m Alice
Like to keep up to date with my musings?
This post is about my English grandmother, Dorothy Bulmer, nee Dorothy Hermon Hughes.
Dorothy was born in Bangor in 1897. My father, Ralph Bulmer, was her eldest son.
Dorothy was very proud of her ancestors. Thanks to her, I know a fair amount about my family tree.
This is the story behind my new book, Meet your greens: Enliven your salads with herbal energetics. It’s about how to make amazing salads, but it’s also about a lot more than that.
Meet Your Greens comes out of my lifelong interest in the different flavours of salad greens.
The year I was 15, my father gave me for Christmas a small jar containing strange white curds.
He said it was a yoghurt bug.
But it wasn’t like any yoghurt bug I’d ever seen.
It wasn’t the kind of present Dad usually gave me.
