... into hot water for a little bit, then fried and put into the dehydrator for extra crispiness. It really is not that hard. In addition the fritters for the evening service are rolled and breaded (traditional standard breading procedures: flour, egg and bread crumbs). The cracker/biscuit for the canapé as well as the spread are made daily as is the amuse bouche which is normally a cold soup or savory wanna cotta of ...
Today was a long day, 27 km with (of course) a big climb above 2000ft at the start. Both of us struggled to get out of bed, dragging our heels into the breakfast room, really just wanting to go back to bed. Last night I limped to the Indian Restaurant in Kirkby Stephen.

Day 5. We were advised in our guide to expect this to be the toughest day. 25 km including a climb to Kidsty Pike, the highest point along the C2C route. Total ascent of 4400ft! We were up early and after a delicious breakfast donned the boots and at 8.30 headed out into a cool, overcast day. Overnight we had a thunderstorm and the hilltops were still steeped in mist. As we climbed, light rain began to fall so the rain jackets came out. We stole a last glance down to Patterdale ...
