Sunday lunch in Snowshill, nr Broadway

I fell in love with the village of Snowshill when I was 6 or 7. There's a great circular walk from Broadway up Broadway hill to the iconic tower and over to Snowshill where you just have to stop at the Snowshill Arms. Along the way you leave the real world behind and it feels like you're walking through countryside which hasn't really changed in centuries. Everyone needs that once in a while..... 
The house where we served this Sunday lunch was just up from the Snowshill Arms. The kitchen overlooks the whole valley towards Broadway and beyond - certainly beats working in underground kitchens!

Each time we do this crab salad, popular for Sunday lunch parties I try out a different way of doing it. This was last Sunday's version.
One of the desserts used melon, so I used the scooped out melon skin as a bowl for the berries on the cheesecake.
... and oranges scooped out as a bowl for the berries to go with treacle tart.

Always try to liven things up - it's the little touches which make the difference!
