Lots of bank holidays!

Are you celebrating/ holding a street party this weekend? We have fresh organic & smoked salmon this week. We also have UK asparagus and watercress and juicy strawberries.
Ideas for parties - smoked salmon & cucumber sandwiches? Why not make coronation chicken - we have frozen organic chicken breasts & pieces.
These coronation chicken pies look interesting! We don't have organic soured cream but you could use plain yoghurt. Last but not least - try these sweet queen of pudding cakes! Meringues are very easy to make.
What ever you are doing this coming weekend enjoy it! The shop will be open bank holiday Monday 10-3 and bank holiday Tuesday 10-5.

National Vegetarian Week

This is national vegetarian week and we have put up a photo of a range of organic vegetarian products that we stock in the shop on our facebook page. There is also a mouth-watering Moroccan Beetroot & Herb Salad recipe care of Rachel's yoghurts. For more vegetarian recipes why not look at the meat free monday website.
The weather is improving and we have seen the sun! It's also Chelsea Flower Show so why not watch the tv highlights eating a bowl of lovely organic strawberries!

British organic asparagus

The weather wasn't too bad for a bank holiday weekend. We are at least seeing some sunshine after all that rain!
We are so pleased to be able to have some organic british asparagus in the shop later this week. The UK asparagus season is very short and has been delayed by this bad weather. Here's a link to some interesting asparagus recipes, mind you we love it steamed and eaten with dash of olive oil.
We also have UK rhubarb - my sister made me a delicious rhubarb fool dessert when I was down in London recently.
