Etruscan jugs

Famous for its blue and white ceramics, Burleigh (established in Stoke on Trent in 1851) has delved into its archive to produce a new range of gorgeously bulbous jugs and vessels with a horticultural theme. The Etruscan jug printed with a monochrome tree can act as plant pot, flower vase or even just a jug…

Burleigh Etruscan Jugs, from £50 (1.1ltre/ 2pt) available at www.burleigh.co.uk


Ginger Pig

It’s the Glorious Twelfth this week… tweeds, guns, game birds and fancy metropolitan restaurants helicoptering grouse down from the moors. It certainly makes a change from the kind of wholesale political slaughter we’ve been witnessing recently. To celebrate the beginning of the season, Ginger Pig, the award-winning butchers, are offering (from October) a limited number of feathered game butchery classes (grouse, partridge, pheasant), including notes on buying and cooking your game

Ginger Pig butchery classes, £155 pp, from October, visit www.thegingerpig.co.uk/butchery-classes
