Alices Day

Jule 4, 2020

Pootling along the river and its tributaries on a Summer’s day is an English pastime which we’ll happily indulge in, especially when we have such a bona fide excuse.

And so we find ourselves rowing along the Thames to Oxford in search of a particular jar of marmalade for this weekend’s Sunday Brunch post.
IMG_8226_20-07-03_Broken_Clock_Lingering_Vodka_Marmalade.jpg The condiment that we seek comes from a recipe originally belonging to a certain Mrs Liddell whose daughter Alice took a leisurely boat trip along this very stretch of river 158 years ago today.

It was on that curious afternoon that a family friend first told Alice and her sisters the tale of a young lady and her nonsensical adventures in Wonderland.

She implored him to write the story down for her and three years later that man - whose pen name was Lewis Carroll - published it as a book which has captured the imagination of millions more since.

And assuming we avoid being marooned on a meander or falling down any rabbit holes ourselves, we look forward to sharing our recipe tomorrow.
