These, basically, are heavy-duty plastic bins that have been customised into composters, with a tap at the base to drain off high quality organic liquid fertiliser. The worms are tiger worms, which will munch through just about anything but prefer a mix that is not too acidic. Eventually the worms will transform the kitchen cuttings to compost. They cost £48.90 incl delivery (full size) or £29.95 ("junior") from Original Organics, Unit 4/5 Farthings Lodge Business Centre, Plymtree, Cullompton, Devon EX15 2JY (01884-277681).
Guides taking in farms and food suppliers as well as restaurants may well supplant traditional restaurant guides. Good Food in Yorkshire & Humberside, by television producer Jill Turton, includes the Michelin- starred Wintringham Fields in Humberside, the best stir-fry in Leeds and an ancient apple orchard. The book (£6.99) is available from Smith Settle Ltd, Ilkley Road, Otley, West Yorkshire LS21 3JP (01943-467958).
