There is now every good reason for visitors to Steyning to venture a few extra yards down the High Street - the delights of caféand deli Chez Joel are rewarding indeed. Judging from the volume of trade on a Tuesday lunchtime, the locals have already discovered this culinary gem in their quaint town. Sarah Harris opened here 16 months ago and prides herself on the quality of the fare on offer. Produce comes from her own one-acre garden, including eggs from her own hens, and everything is freshly prepared and cooked on the premises. Daily specials change regularly to supplement the wide and enticing range of quiches, salads and sandwiches always available. We shared a wonderful lovage soup and a warm goat's cheese salad that brought back fond memories of French holidays. Around us, platters of cold meats, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, and colourful salads of crayfish and chicken kept our eyes swivelling to other diners' plates. The well-stocked deli is obviously very popular, with locally sourced products and all meat coming from the traditional butcher across the street. Afternoon cream tea offers the chance to sample Sarah's homemade scones; she also sells frozen home-cooked meals, including a range for those with special dietary requirements. Knowing where your ingredients come from and exactly what is going into your dishes is the cornerstone of Sarah's approach to food. Chez Joel also offers an outside catering service for any occasion you care to name, to exactly the same high standards. A bouncy castle can be included as part of this package, but I wouldn't recommend its use after sampling Sarah's delicious cuisine - the likelihood is that you will have over indulged.
