The Event ….
12 amateur jockeys have been chosen to take part in a once in a lifetime charity challenge at York Racecourse. The challenge will see members of the public complete six months of intense jockey training before racing thoroughbred horses on York’s iconic course. All twelve riders have each pledged to raise at least £4,000 and can expect to race in front of more than 25,000 people on the day, Macmillan Charity Race Day, Saturday 13th June 2020.
The Girl …
SJ Barker lives near Malton, I’ve known her for many years with both of us coming from local farming families. As well as running the highly successful Ryedale Mumbler she also runs her families thoroughbred breeding operation. But having ridden all her life she has never ridden a racehorse until a couple of weeks ago! We thought we would help SJ raise as much money as she can for this fantastic cause by hosting a supper club and giving 50% of the ticket price to support her. You can also go online to her just giving fundraising page to add a personal donation as well.

To celebrate the 50 year partnership between York Racecourse and Macmillan all money raised from this year’s race will go directly into supporting people across Yorkshire. The Ernest Cooper Macmillan Ride of their Lives regularly raises more than £100,000 for Macmillan.

Please call the deli on 01653 699389 to book places (£26.50 per person) and let us know of any dietary requirements, Veggie, Vegan Gluten Free etc. And as ever this is a BYO event.

Blood Orange Tart by Simon Rimmer



This is what will be going on in my household this weekend!  Plus the beginnings of a large batch of Rhubarb Vodka

Blood Orange Tart

200g/7oz sugar, plus extra for dusting
3 blood oranges, juice and zest
1 tsp orange blossom water
2 free-range eggs, plus 6 yolks
200g/7oz butter, cubed
25cm/10in sweetened shortcrust pastry tart shell, blind baked (you can use ready-made)
For the topping:
3 blood oranges, peeled, sliced into rounds
1 tbsp demerara sugar

Whisk the sugar, orange juice and zest, orange blossom water, eggs and egg yolks together in a bowl until well combined.
Add the butter and set over a pan over simmering water. (Do not let the base of the bowl touch the water.)
Cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring regularly, until the butter has melted and the mixture has thickened.
Pour the mixture into the cooked pastry case, cover with clingfilm (to prevent a skin forming) and set aside to cool.
Arrange the orange slices on the cooled tart and sprinkle over the demerara sugar.
Using a cooks’ blowtorch, heat the sugar until caramelised.

To serve, slice the tart and serve with double cream or custard.
