Granny the Inspiration Back
Betty Spear, the culinary inspiration for Philleigh Way, is still heavily involved with the farm and cooking. Herself a farmer’s wife, she was widowed with four young children to raise, which she did with sheer hard work and gutsy Cornish determination. Her pastry is unsurpassed but she still insists “my dear soul, any old fool can make pastry”. Granny keeps the farmhouse larder well-stocked with homemade preserves, marmalade, and a wonderful selection of freshly baked breads and cakes.
