If you want a quick and simple starter why not try our potted shrimp recipe? It's something local and easy to make. A snack or starter, we used eat it with home baked bread for Sunday tea. Tradition dictates the use of mace but this ingredient seems to be passing out of use. If you are looking for a connection to Kent - Wikipedia claims potted shrimp was a favorite of Ian Fleming (the Bond author from Kent). More successful recipes are stored in our Recipe Directory.
