WHAT'S NEW



French Nettles

Unmistakeably "green" in flavour, somewhere between spinach, cabbage and broccoli, just use these delicious French Nettles anywhere you would use other fresh greens.

Great in soups but just as good paired with eggs, in risottos, with pasta and, we are reliably informed in bubble and squeak!

Italian Fennel

Super Italian Fennel is in stock - vibrant colour and excellent quality.

One of the "Marmite" products of the vegetable world, fennel has one of those flavours people either love or hate, although most of our customers can't get enough if it's strong aniseed flavour.

Eaten raw, the crisp flesh maintain's its intensity but once cooked the texture becomes softer and the flavour is more subtle.

French Asparagus

The eagerly awaited new crop French Asparagus is now in and you couldn't get much better - wonderful produce.

Did you know that these delicious stalks are actually the baby shoots of a cultivated lily plant and they are stupidly high in nutrients: vitamins A, C, potassium, iron and calcium all reside within their tender stems.

And yes, we all know, they make your pee smell - although bizarrely not everyone can detect it! Just saying!

Monk's Beard

A chef's favourite, our Italian Monk Beard is a culinary delight - make sure you don't miss out on this delightful product. All great chefs and cooks crave it as nothing else really comes close to it's combination of taste and texture.

Also known as "agretti" in Italy, it has a flavour somewhere between chives and samphire, and is indeed similar in appearance to it's sea-vegetable lookalike!

The grass-like produce originated from Tuscany , and it's name derives from the Cappuccino Monks who were adept at growing it.

It can be used raw in salads, BUT only when it is very young, and it is better suited to being steamed,

Italian Red Grelot Onions

These Red Grelot Onions are just one of the amazing products coming out of Italy at the moment and straight into our warehouse.

Resembling salad onions in appearance, grelots grow in bunches and always have the bulbous, small round pearl-like shape at the base.

Don't forget you can consume the stalks too, snipping them off like chives or spring onion tops.
