Cook's Corner

Your monthly recipe to
tantalise your taste buds


2 large leeks
Salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 oz  (40g) butter
11/2oz (40g) plain flour
1/2pint (300ml) milk
4 slices cooked ham
1/2 level teaspoon made mustard
3oz (75g) grated Cheddar cheese
1oz (25g) breadcrumbs
1teaspoon chopped parsley

1 Cut the roots and damaged leaves off the leaks.  Slit the leeks down their length and rinse them under running cold water to remove any soil.  Cut each one in half across.  Cook them in boiling salted water for 10 minutes until they are tender but still firm.
2 Melt the butter in a pan, stir in the flour and cook this mixture for 1 minute.   Remove the pan from the heat and gradually stir in the milk, then bring the sauce to the boil, stirring all the time until it thickens.  Season with salt and pepper and allow to simmer gently for 2 minutes.
3 Drain the leeks and wrap one leek half in a sliced of cooked ham.  Arrange in a greased shallow ovenproof dish.
4 Stir the mustard and cheese into the sauce and when it is smooth, pour it over the ham and leeks. Sprinkle with the breadcrumbs.
5 Bake in a moderately hot oven (400f 200c gas 6) for 30 minutes or until lightly browned on top.
6 Sprinkle with parsley and serve hot.



Dear Editor
When are we going to see the police enforcing speed limit around here?  Especially along the coast road, between Cromer and Sheringham.  I haven't seen the Police doing this for nearly three years and it's dangerous and time something was done about it.   An illuminated sign before Brook Road would be a great help.
A concerned reader.

In response to this letter, I have spoken to Road Policing they have a regular schedule of speed checks along the coast road between Cromer and Sheringham with dedicated areas for speed checks.  We have a positive policy concerning road safety with a dedicated road policing unit to cover this area perhaps the author would like to contact me and I can show him/her what activities we are carrying out With regards to the placement of a sign this would be a matter for consultation with highways to evidence the benefits of a sign being placed the area.  Brook Road has a good record concerning road safety however these comments have been noted and forwarded to the Psgt in charge of Road Policing in the area.

Chris Rankin, well known as Percy Weasley in the Harry Potter films, will be launching the first Witches and Wizards day at Kelling Heath later this month.   The day is organised to give children a fun taste of Hogwarts style magical skills and techniques, all in an authentically Halloween themed venue with the opportunity to show their newfound expertise in a drama-based demonstration at the end of each session.

The event will be raising money for Kelling Heath's adopted charity for 2006; Norfolk based Nelson's Journey, of which Chris is patron. Nelson's Journey works with bereaved children helping them to understand and work through their grief following the death of a close relative.

The budding Witches and Wizards are invited to attend a range of workshops on Saturday 28th October, at Kelling Heath.  The workshops will be drama-based and are being run by Bridget Robinson from Sheringham Little Theatre who regularly organises very popular participative drama sessions for children of all ages.

Chris will be working his magic on the day and says,  "Nelson's Journey is a fantastic charity and participating in a Witches and Wizards workshop is one great way of helping us to raise important funds."

Sessions will cost 6.00 per child with all proceeds going to Nelson's Journey.   Places are limited so parents are advised to book now.  More information is available from the Kelling Heath reception on 01263 588 181.  Places in the sessions can also be booked on this number with payment made by credit/debit card, or by visiting Kelling Heath reception in person.


Ever felt a little isolated up on the Norfolk coast but want to do a little more? - here's something for you!  Frazer Spence was once a local lad living at Kings Lynn. He played cricket at Castle Rising, hockey at Pelicans and has childhood memories of school at Hunstanton and horse riding at Holme!  However that was long ago and he has now retired in Kent with his wife Rita. Together they have set up  It's a network of people who provide occasional free bed and breakfast for one another as a guest!

More and more of us young people are retiring earlier on a pension with loads of time to do all the things we had dreamt of.  The Network now has members across UK and Ireland and has just started in France. It is for like minded people with a
spare bedroom.  The Network visits all its new members to make sure that hospitality is the same as you would expect to
receive yourself and it provides a very private and personal service for members who use the Network for far away family
occasions, an overnight stop, Wimbledon, The Open, London theatres, touring holidays etc. etc..  Its not a replacement for
B&B its an additional option as members often do a mix and match!

Host an occasional visitor, meet some super people and create the option of staying as a guest across UK & Ireland.  Bed & Breakfast with one thing missing - The Bill.   Tel: 01227470780
