Members of the Ely and District Parkinson’s UK Group enjoyed ‘Chutney and Chat’ at their August meeting.

The group - which meets each month - was treated to a selection chutneys, cheeses, olives and curds, including curd made with blueberries, along with a gluten free range of cakes.

They were joined by Mike Howard of Rain Wizard Catering of Southery who spoke to the group about his culinary life and career.

A spokesman for the group said: "Mike shared with members where he got his inventive inspiration from and recounted many amusing stories.

"Mike also answered questions about chutneys and more general cooking questions, including 'how do I made the perfect Yorkshire puddings?'
