Cotswolds MemoirsDiscovering a Beautiful Region of Britain on a Quest to Buy a 17th Century Cottage. (Ranked #1 Best Selling in British Travel in Kindle on Amazon), a love note to this beautiful area, is the first book in a series. The story begins when this British-born author and comedy actress’s roots pull her back from the glitz and glamour of a Hollywood career to the UK with her American husband, where a cure for her homesickness leads to a fun-filled, roller-coaster ride. The many pitfalls that come her way during her journey are seen through the prism of comedy and turn this tale into a laugh-out-loud, good life, foodie, meet the eccentric locals, cliff-hanging read.

In the second book of the series which can be read independently of the first, More Cotswolds Memoirs: Creating the Perfect Cottage and Discovering Downton Abbey in the Cotswolds, Diz’s journey continues during her bid to turn her newly-purchased home into the perfect cottage. Her many adventures include coming across the film locations of Downton Abbey, delving into their history and meeting with the cast of this world-renown series.

Cast of Downton Abbey

Also, in More Cotswolds Memoirs, the author builds on to her 17th century cottage and contends with the myriad ups and downs of renovating a listed building. A collapsing piggery and other disasters turn the project into a money pit that compels her to scramble between Hollywood and the Cotswolds, often hilariously descending the ladder of success as she takes every acting job offered in order to finance her dream.

The author’s search for vintage building supplies leads to an exploration of the Cotswolds with its pub walks, hog roasts, Roman settlements, and eventually, the Downton Abbey film set in Bampton where she attends a wrap party with the cast. Diz becomes fascinated with the history of the sites used in the filming, identifies all the film locations in the Cotswolds and traces their origins.

Chipping Campden

In order to overcome all obstacles her journey develops into a race against time, to achieve her goal, Cotswold bliss in her newly-renovated cottage.

Cotswolds Lavender Lemonade and Gin Fizz Recipes

I’m pleased to share my recipe for Lavender lemonade. Of course, fresh picked lavender is best for aroma and flavour.

Lavender Lemonade

Cotswolds Lavender Lemonade with Cotswolds Honey

Makes 6-8 large servings

INGREDIENTS
(Ingredients listed below are best sourced in the Cotswolds if possible).
2 – 3 cups full of fresh lavender blossoms or more if easily available – grown in the Cotswolds. Remove most of the stalks.
(If fresh lavender is not available culinary lavender may be substituted)
1 jar (or to taste) Cotswolds Honey – must be from honey sold in a glass jar.
3 cups of de-ionized or distilled water.
4 lemons (organic and from the Cotswolds if possible).
5 Cups of cold water – (or more or less to taste).

IMPORTANT
All kitchen items used to prepare this lemonade must be made of glass or stainless steel and the spatula must be wooden.
The method of squeezing the lemons must be done using glass or stainless steel.

METHOD

LAVENDER INFUSION

IMPORTANT
Use either a stainless steel saucepan or an ovenproof glass dish to heat the distilled water or de-ionized water.
If distilled or de-ionized water is used it is possible to store any leftover infusion in the fridge for up to two weeks and use it for more lavender lemonade.
If tap water is used this ruins the infusion if it is to be stored in the fridge.
Tap water may be used if all of the infusion is used immediately.
