Where it all began

28 Dec

Our quest to champion food produced in London began with our discovery of this company, H Forman and sons, 2 years ago. We were inspired by the story of the history of the company and the changes it endured because of the Olympic games. Today this article appeared in the Mail on Sunday. We firmly believe that in London, we produce a vast array of products that should be shouted about and this is only one of them.

Packed full of flavour and beautifully packed

8 Dec

Ladle and Larder pickles and chutneys. Couldn’t decide which flavor to buy, so bought all of them. Love the simple clean colour coded packaging. Take a look at the website http://www.ladleandlarder.co.uk A neat little touch is, as you scroll over the jars of different flavor chutneys, the ingredients are revealed. http://www.ladleandlarder.co.uk IMG_0665

Made in London and proud of it.

2 Dec

Newton and Pott Beetroot and Orange chutney. Made in Hackney. Love the chutney, but also love the way that they shout about where it is made. Would love to see more London producers display their provenance.

Highlights of the Foodies Festival Christmas

30 Nov

Went along to the Truman Brewery on Friday and had a great time rummaging around for new products to feature. Lots of delights along with some lovely people. Tasted and bought fabulous stuff from Fatties Bakery, from the lovely Chloe who hand makes and packages some absolute gems. Into our Christmas hampers are going the Sea Salted Caramels and the Creme fraiche Treacle Caramels.

Borough Barrow Bitter

27 Nov

Great story behind this beer, brewed for Borough Markets 1000th anniversary. It’s name is much easier to write than it is to say (especially if you have had one or two I suspect)

I’m completely hooked

26 Nov

We unearthed this gem “Pate Moi” at Venn Street Market on Saturday. We sampled it on a chunk of fresh bread. On Sunday I spread it on warm toast, then today I had it melted onto a bowl of pasta. I am now completely addicted and have just finished the pot with a spoon.

Everything except the Candlestick Maker.

24 Nov

Found this amazing shop on Saturday in Lower Marsh. http://www.greensmithsfood.co.uk
With the deception of Dr Who’s Tardis, it boasts a Butcher,(http://www.thegingerpig.co.uk) and a Baker (oldpostofficebakery.co.uk) and lots of other goodies including wines and a cafe.
